Isocyanates Asia Transcript
ICIS is the only publication that provides a weekly price assessment on Isocyanates, Toluene di-isocyanate (or TDI) and methylene di-p-isocyanate (or MDI) in Asia.
For TDI, the report provides comprehensive coverage of the key China market, including cost & freight (CFR) China spot and monthly contract prices, and domestic prices for the North, South and East of China.
An assessment is also provided for South East Asia, alongside commentary on both the delivered and Indonesia and Malaysia markets. The cost, insurance and freight (CIF) India quote and commentary rounds up our TDI market coverage.
For MDI, we monitor both spot CFR import and domestic prices in China for both polymeric and monomeric or pure MDI.
To deliver greater context to the assessed prices, China’s many import statistics are provided, together with details of monthly production of upholstered furniture in China.
Feedstock Benzene, news of production output, and unexpected plant outages are also covered. We list deals, bids and offers that deliver easy reference assessments for our customers and this information also helps them in their decision making.
We speak to all the major players who produce, buy and sell isocyanates as this builds up a comprehensive and unbiased view of the market.
This is useful for participants looking for an independent reference or benchmark for spot transactions.
