PVC Price Drop in Asia

According to a source from the traders, recently the price of PVC in Asia is showing a downward trend, falling to about 1,000 dollars per ton, which is the lowest since December of last year.

PVC is produced from ethylene derived from naphtha and chlorine derived from salt. The ethylene market is on a downward trend after its peak about 2 months ago. (Also refer to our post on March 29.)
