SINGAPORE (ICIS news)--Indian producers have hiked domestic prices of polyvinyl chloride (PVC) by 6.3% for the second time in 2008 in response to rising import prices and feedstock costs, sources close to the producers said on Tuesday.
PVC prices for March cargoes rose to Indian rupees (Rs) Rs50.50/kg ($1.25/kg) EXW (ex-works, excluding taxes).
Also spurring the price hike was the anticipation of a pick-up in demand from the construction segment.
