Expandable polystyrene Asia Transcript
The ICIS weekly Asian expandable polystyrene, or EPS report covers two grades, the packaging and the block flame retardant types.
A complete overview of the key Chinese market is given. Working closely with our colleagues in China, we quote spot prices on a CFR basis and provide domestic price assessments for both grades.
Besides providing demand and supply commentary for the region, we also provide plant operations as an additional indicator of supply. Commentary on feedstock styrene monomer is also in the report giving clients an added perspective on the production margins of EPS producers.
Included is also information on the Taiwanese local market, market analysis on the South East Asia market and a section on export markets.
Since we speak to all the major players who produce, buy and sell EPS, ICIS builds up a comprehensive and unbiased view of the market. This is useful for those looking for an independent reference or benchmark for spot transactions.
