Ethylene Aisa Transcript
ICIS provides comprehensive coverage of the ethylene market in Asia.
In recent years, the spotlight has been focused on Asia, where rapidly growing economies such as China, and India have fuelled strong demand for petrochemical products.
As such, the price movements of ethylene a major feedstock for petrochemicals, are closely watched by the industry; and we offer both daily and weekly coverage of the Asian market to meet the demand for news and information.
We also provide daily, real-time price updates through our price alerts and noon snapshots.
In the reports we track the prices of ethylene imports into northeast and southeast Asia, through deals and discussions heard during the week. We also closely monitor cracker developments in the region and cover any turn-arounds or outages that could have an impact on the market.
The ethylene weekly report also has sections on freight rates, and contract pricing, in addition to the spot information.
ICIS in Asia has reported on ethylene for close to 20 years and we have established a wide contact base of producers, buyers and traders in a market that is not openly transparent.
Our published prices are considered essential by our customers as they are used as key benchmarks for contract negotiations.
