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.

Updated to Q1 2016
US ethylene dichloride (EDC) started 2016 at the lowest price since 19 December 2009, but has since tracked upward on the back of rising crude oil and costs for feedstock ethylene. Demand has been brisk in global markets and in the US for polyvinyl chloride (PVC), EDC’s prime derivative, helping the upward price movement.
US EDC exports ended 2015 up 3% from 2014’s totals, with additional demand from India, especially, but also from China, Egypt, Taiwan and Thailand, according to data from the US International Trade Commission.
Export shipments for January were up sharply from the prior year with buyers in Egypt taking more than one quarter of their 2015 volumes during the single month.
US EDC prices at the end of the quarter were up by an average of $40/tonne from their January low.
Prices are expected to trend upward into the second quarter along with those for PVC.
