Northeast Asia paraxylene prices continued to rise strongly on demand for purified terephthalic acid (PTA) production and regional supply constraints.
Butadiene prices in the region were under pressure on more available capacity and weaker synthetic rubber and ABS (acrylonitrile butadiene styrene) markets.
Published at the beginning of each month, the index is derived using ICIS historical prices for 12 key petrochemical products – ethylene, propylene, benzene, toluene, paraxylene (PX), styrene, methanol, butadiene (BD), polyvinyl chloride (PVC), polyethylene (PE), polypropylene (PP) and polystyrene (PS).
The ICIS Polymers Index tracks prices for polyvinyl chloride (PVC), polyethylene (PE), polypropylene (PP), polystyrene (PS) and polyethylene terephthalate.
