SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s linear low density polyethylene (LLDPE) futures rise by 0.33% on Friday because of the hiked prices offered by local producers for the early January cargoes.
Sinopec eastern and northern branch pushed up their offers by CNY150/tonne and CNY 50/tonne respectively on Friday which bolstered the spot LLDPE market.
