Isopropanol Asia Transcript
ICIS publishes a weekly isopropanol (IPA) report in Asia. Buyers, producers and traders are all represented in our weekly calls and the information gathered is thoroughly cross-checked to ensure that the prices we publish are representative.
We track deals and discussions in the market and also provide the latest information on plant shut downs that could have an impact. Price of feedstock propylene and acetone are also included as they have an important bearing on sentiment and pricing outcomes.
ICIS assesses cost and freight (CFR) prices in northeast Asia (NE Asia) and southeast Asia (SE Asia). Trade in NE Asia is driven mainly by import demand from the key China market.
China’s domestic transactions are also listed in the commentary. This is because Chinese traders and distributors usually refer to local producers pricing in considering how much they might want to pay for imports.
Industry players follow our report closely as they know is an accurate and reliable source reference for spot discussions.
