Procurement Resource provides latest prices of LLDPE. Each price database is tied to a user-friendly graphing tool dating back to 2014, which provides a range of functionalities: configuration of price series over user defined time period; comparison of product movements across countries; customisation of price currencies and unit; extraction of price data as excel files to be used offline.
Get the latest insights on price movement and trend analysis of LLDPE in different regions across the world (Asia, Europe, North America, Latin America, and the Middle East & Africa).
Due to supply shortages brought on by the Chinese government's strict COVID-19 protocols, which forced a significant amount of production units to shut down and delayed container transit into and out of crucial container terminals like Ningbo and Shanghai, prices for LLDPE in China increased. Manufacturers like SABIC, RIL, and ONGC Petro additions Ltd. Raised their prices in the latter half of January. RIL further increased the contracts by 9500 INR/MT in February.
The price trends for Linear Low-Density Polyethylene (LLDPE) fluctuated in the Asia-Pacific region during the second quarter of 2022.LLDPE prices rose in China in April before falling in May and picking up again in June. LLDPE Film Extrusion Grade's market value at FOB Shanghai went from 1410 USD/MT in May to 1440 USD/MT in June 2022.
The disruption of natural gas supplies during the first part of the quarter put a tremendous amount of pressure on European LLDPE production during the quarter ending in March.
The average price for standard linear low-density polyethylene (LLDPE) film in northwest Europe averaged roughly 2000 Euro/MT. The constant increase in oil prices and robust downstream demand from the packaging and film industries were two major drivers of LLDPE price growth in the second quarter. As a result, the cost of LLDPE Film FD Hamburg constructed rose from USD 1870/MT in April to USD 1925/MT in June, a 2.9% increase.
The first quarter of 2022 saw a supply shock in the feedstock ethylene market (required for the production of linear low-density polyethylene )as the largest refinery in the area at ExxonMobil's Baytown facility in Texas caught fire in the final week of December 2021. By the second week of February, demand had significantly increased, prompting large domestic producers including ExxonMobil, Lyondell Basel, and Dow Chemicals to plan a cost-push of 0.07 USD/lb.
During the second quarter of 2022, LLDPE prices displayed conflicting feelings, supported by shifting supply and demand dynamics. LLDPE's market value started to incline in April, and from then until June, the pricing pattern was stable to slightly falling. LLDPE Film Butene-based Grade FOB (Spot) Nevada's assessed value was 2015 USD/MT in April before declining to 2009 USD/MT in June.
LLDPE is a linear polymer of polyethene with low levels of branching. It is formed by the copolymerization of ethylene with long-chained olefins like hexene or octene. LDPE (Low-density polyethene) is often recycled to create LLDPE. Owing to its high tensile strength, high impact resistance and excellent flexibility, it has a wide range of industrial applications.

Three major types of low-pressure technologies are employed for LLDPE production: slurry, solution, and gas-phase processes. LLDPE is made by copolymerization of ethylene with alpha-olefins using Ziegler-Natta catalysts. Usually, octene is used as the comonomer in the gaseous phase, while butene or hexene is used in the gaseous phase copolymerization.
