SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Import offers for polyvinyl chloride (PVC) in India were unchanged at $1,040-1,050/tonne (€811-819/tonne) this week, after having fallen sharply since early September, as demand for the material is on a seasonal slump, market sources said.
Indian producers have cut their domestic list prices for PVC by rupees (Rs) 3/kg ($57/tonne), effective 5 October, opting to adjust prices close to the re-opening to the key Chinese market, which was on a week-long holiday.
List prices were reduced given strong availability of PVC, market sources said.
