Cyclohexane Europe Transcript
Cyclohexane is traded on quarterly contracts, but ICIS publish a monthly price.
The continent of the European ICIS cyclohexane report reflects conversations with buyers, sellers and traders of cyclohexane.
These participants help ICIS formulate the quarterly delta, which is then added to the benzene contract price to yield the monthly cyclohexane formula price.
The report also covers developments in feedstock benzene as well as overviews of downstream caprolactam and adipic acid. It will also highlight any planned or unplanned outages in Europe.
The published formula is used across the cyclohexane community, as it is a trusted and reliable benchmark.

Insight and analysis of factors driving prices.
The European cyclohexane (CX) Q1 delta contract was agreed at €156/tonne, a €5/tonne increase from Q4 2013 because of tighter supply, buyers and sellers said.
Discussions were protracted by the Christmas holiday period and a failure to speedily reach agreement over the extent of price rises.
Sources had voiced concerns in Q4 2013 that fewer producers of CX in Europe could lead to higher prices due to increased premiums to ensure supply.
This is because supply disruptions at a single supplier will have a larger impact on the wider market, and will mean that producers may be able to charge a premium for buyers to secure material.
The concerns emerged following BP’s announcement in September that it would close its CX plant in Lingen, Germany, at the end of 2013 because of poor profitability.
The plant has a nameplate capacity of 260,000 tonnes/year and is the fourth largest CX plant in Europe, according to the ICIS plants and projects database.
The closure of the Lingen plant follows Total’s exit from European CX production in 2012.
