ICIS Petrochemical Index (IPEX)

The ICIS Global Petrochemical Index (IPEX) provides a capacity-weighted measure of the average change in petrochemical prices over time.

Dating back to January 1993, historical ICIS prices for a basket of 12 essential petrochemical products in the US, western Europe and northeast Asian markets have been weighted by regional nameplate capacity to generate a monthly index value.

Use the IPEX to get an authoritative, independent indicator of average change in world petrochemical prices.
