The article reports on the looming decline in Asian polyvinyl chloride prices in November 2006. After two months of avoiding restocking, buyers have slowly started to replenish their inventories, although traders are still reluctant to take large positions. The 20% correction has led market players to believe the prices have hit the bottom, based on current feedstock costs and supply-demand dynamics.
