One of the producers increased its offer for hexene-based MLLDPE to $1,440/tonne CFR (cost and freight)
But the producer has very limited supply to offer at this price, they added.
The other global producer hiked its offer for octene-based MLLDPE by $50/tonne to $1,450/tonne CFR China for end-July/early August shipment, the distributors said.
Discussions for the octene-based MLLDPE were ongoing, they added.
Market sentiment turned rosy following strong gains in the spot prices of butene-based LLDPE prices.
Butene-based LLDPE prices rose to $1,220-1,290/tonne CFR China in the week ended 6 July, up $20-60/tonne from the previous week, according to ICIS.
