Polyethylene pipe grade Middle East-South Asia Transcript
ICIS produces a weekly report on polyethylene or PE pipe grade for the Middle East and South Asia, the only one in the marketplace.
The report assesses the price movements of black and natural HDPE 100 and 80 grades, the main grades being traded in the Middle East and South Asia markets.
It currently includes price quotes on imports into the Gulf Cooperation Council or GCC, the East Mediterranean or East Med, and India.
The commentary includes details on trades and discussions in contingent markets such as Iran, Turkey, Pakistan, Nepal, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka.
We communicate with a broad spectrum of buyers, sellers, and participants in the marketplace to collate information on deals offers and bids.
In addition, it includes analysis of price-moving factors such as feedstock costs, supply and demand fundamentals trends that could influence pricing in the future. Key information on production such as shutdowns and startups is also provided. ICIS launched this report to make an opaque market far more transparent.
Because the report is the only one in existence it is considered a unique reference tool and an essential read.
