This article focuses on the trends in prices of petrochemicals in Asia. Polyethylene prices fell in March 2007 following weakened ethylene values. Prompt high density polyethylene film grade offers were quoted at $1,270/tonne in China. Linear low density polyethylene offers were heard at $1,290-1,295/tonne in China for April shipment amid poor demand. Polypropylene values fell in March, dragged down by weak demand from China and uncertainty over feedstock prices.
