Ethylene Vinyl Acetate Asia Transcript
The ICIS pricing ethylene vinyl acetate, or EVA report is a weekly report that examines trade flows through China, South East Asia and South Asia.
Two separate sets of CFR quotes are categorised into high and low VA content grades of 14-20% and 22-30% for each region. The report mainly focuses on China as this represents the key market for EVA but it also covers trading in South East Asia and India.
The CFR China main port quote indicates the currents prices of imported material bound for the Chinese sector. Material can originate from North East Asia, mainly Taiwan or Korea, or South East Asia which is Singapore and Thailand, while product emanating from Europe and US will also be taken into consideration.
The report offers essential market commentary that includes details of traced transactions, news on the supply demand balance, export and import information, news, contract price negotiations and general sentiment for price direction.
Where applicable, there are comments on upstream and downstream market developments.
ICIS has a strong track record of global polymers coverage and is in a good position to track developments in the polyethylene market. EVA producers, consumers and traders across the region contribute to and have an interest in this report with many of these market players choosing to use the ICIS quotations to formulate their monthly settlement prices.

Updated to Q2 2016
The prices of Asia’s ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA) for foaming, hotmelt adhesives, wire and cable coatings applications shed around 10% in value over the second quarter due to weaker-than-projected plant utilisation rates in the downstream sectors for April and May. The Caixin general manufacturing purchasing managers' index (PMI) for China dipped to 49.2 in May, down from 49.4 in April amid a renewed fall in total new business and export orders while the PMI in June fell to 48.6. A spate of EVA plant turnarounds in China from May to July failed to stem the price corrections, as buyers largely adopted a cautious approach in light of new EVA plant capacities in China and Taiwan. Taiwan’s Formosa Plastics Corp (FPC) commenced trial runs since 28 March at its new 72,000 tonne/year plant in Ningbo, China and commercial sales in May 2016. The onset of the weak demand season in the downstream footwear sectors in China and India further prompted a couple of EVA/low density polyethylene (LDPE) swing producers in Thailand and south Korea to divert production to LDPE from mid-May to July.
