Polyols Middle East Transcript
The ICIS polyether polyols Middle East report was launched in December 2011 to complement and expand the geographical reach of ICIS’s existing polyols coverage.
The weekly report, which publishes on Thursdays, provides unique coverage of conventional polyols prices for flexible and rigid foam on a drum basis.
Price assessments are provided on a CFR Middle East and CFR GCC basis after a rigorous process of information gathering.
A wide cross-section of sources in the Asian, European, Middle Eastern and African markets are contacted including producers, buyers and traders.
The report provides details of price movements, demand and supply trends, market sentiment and a brief survey of macroeconomic influences that may have an effect on price movements.
Information is also provided on polymer polyol grades. Price information and trends for upstream products such as the key feedstock, propylene oxide is also provided as well as insight from the downstream markets.
Being the first of its kind in the market, this report has been well received by its target audience who find it useful to have greater transparency on prices and the factors influencing polyols prices in the Middle East
