Demand for PP Homo Raffia, in particular, is still steady even though the monsoon has already arrived as converters are concentrating to finish orders to deliver up to September-October for the export market. However, SSESSMENTS.COM noted that most of them are still running at a reduced rate because of the manpower issue. Speaking about PE, demand is quite steady as supported by the packaging sector.
In terms of outlook, the trader told SSESSMENTS.COM that uptrend in Indian PE market wouldn't last so long as now it is only supported by tight supply and firm feedstock prices. The trader also shared their thought that PP price should be stable onward in the India market.
