Caustic soda Africa Transcript
The African caustic soda report is published every Thursday. We look at the four key regions of Africa – the North, South, West and East – offering both liquid and solid spot prices.
We are the only weekly report with a pure focus on Africa and that allows us to talk to all of the different players in all of the different regions and put a focus and invest real resources within that market to give an accurate and timely picture.
Coupled with our information gathering in Asia and in Europe, that gives us a global picture, which is really important for markets such as South Africa, East Africa and West Africa which are predominantly import markets.
It allows us to trace the prices in other regions and give guidance on what is happening in the market why it’s happening in the market and also because of the six-week loading times what could be happening in the future.
