Ethylene dichloride US Transcript
The ethylene dichloride report is a global publication that is released on a weekly basis. The Houston, London and Singapore offices all collaborate to publish the report.
The ethylene dichloride report covers a weekly spot range on a free on board basis sourced out of the US Gulf. We determine where the market is through an extensive polling of market participants to establish a solid picture of where price ideas are.
ICIS reports and writes details on any confirmed transaction and also includes notional price ranges heard in the market. On top of the input we get from buyers, sellers and traders we also look at other factors in the US market like what’s going on in the feestocks for EDC, which would be ethylene and what is happening in end-use sectors as well, that would be PVC market, which, in turn, is tied to housing and construction.
A smaller market like EDC can really be challenging for buyers and sellers so the ICIS report is a great help to them because it not only gives them a credible view of where prices are it also lifts the lid on things going on in the market and gives them solid reasons for any price movements.
That kind of comprehensive information gives subscribers confidence as they move ahead with their own decisions.
