Methyl tertiary butyl ether Europe Transcript
ICIS publishes two methyl tertiary butyl ether (MTBE) reports, a daily and a weekly, as well as a daily price alert system covering free on board (FOB) Rotterdam and Amsterdam price.
The weekly report, in addition to the pricing, contains in-depth commentary and analysis. This is deprived from conversations with buyers, sellers, traders – a whole range of market sources.
MTBE is a global product and as such we look at the global picture. Prices in Europe can be influenced by demand in Venezuela for example, and more particularly demand from Asia. This is because, although there is production in Europe, the majority of material is imported from the Middle East and as such Europe has to complete with Asia for the Middle Eastern product.
