Terephalic Acid Asia Transcript

ICIS provides daily and weekly coverage of purified terephthalic acid (PTA) in Asia offering real time market intelligence and in-depth market analysis.

Spot price assessments are provided for the key China market, the Indian market as well as information on monthly contract settlements in China and Taiwan.

Commentary includes analysis of the China market and India market together with downstream polyester and production use.

The cost and freight (CFR) China Main Port (CMP) spot quotation is an important benchmark in the industry and since 2010 has been split into two categories following the implementation of anti-dumping duties.

Due to our fast reaction to the market changes and our coverage of price assessments, Asia PTA producers, traders and end users chose to refer to ICIS numbers as their benchmark prices in contract settlements.

ICIS attaches great importance to talking and listening to industry experts on a daily basis. This eliminates bias and ensures a more accurate and independent pricing assessment.
