Polyethylene Middle East-South Asia Transcript
The Polyethylene Middle East-South Asia published once a week enjoys a strong benchmark status in the Middle East and is increasingly being used as a reference price in South Asia.
The report includes separete quotes on imports into the Gulf Cooperation Council, Eastern Mediterranean, East Med, India and Pakistan for LDPE, LLDPE and several HDPE grades.
There are continuing demands from market players to introduce more price quotes in the report, a reflection of the credibility that ICIS enjoys in the two regions.
We keep in regular touch with industry players in South Asia through email, phone calls and contact visits and reflect this dynamic information exchange in our weekly report.
Aside from the key assessments, the readers have access to analysis and commentary on the changing supply and demand patterns. The status of production facilities is closely monitored as production outages can have a significant impact on price.
Freight rate changes that affect PE prices are also tracked every week.
Because we collate our information from a cross section of sources including buyers and sellers, ICIS assessments are viewed as independent, objective and accurate by a growing number of market players.
Our report helps them negotiate an increasingly complex trading environment.
