Polyethylene pipe grade Asia Transcript
ICIS launched a report in 2009 for assessing pipe grade high density polyethylene also known as HDPE. The report was, and still is, the first of its kind in Asia. No other pricing agency in the world provides pipe resin HDPE price assessments.
The ICIS report carries CFR China, and Southeast Asia assessments for HDPE100 and HDPE80, covering both the natural and black compounded grades.
We have launched the HDPE pipe resin grade report in response to requests from the industry. Many industry players look to ICIS to provide benchmark assessments for HDPE pipe resins because our polyethylene report is an established benchmark for the global plastics industry.
Our price assessments reflect the transactions, bids and offers captured throughout the week. Our reports also include planned maintenance schedules and plant outages which may have an impact on the market. We speak to resin processors, traders and producers to obtain accurate information on the week’s trades.
Our information is reliable and timely because we have in-depth market knowledge, industry contacts and a global team of editors.
