Cyclohexane Europe Transcript
Cyclohexane is traded on quarterly contracts, but ICIS publish a monthly price.
The continent of the European ICIS cyclohexane report reflects conversations with buyers, sellers and traders of cyclohexane.
These participants help ICIS formulate the quarterly delta, which is then added to the benzene contract price to yield the monthly cyclohexane formula price.
The report also covers developments in feedstock benzene as well as overviews of downstream caprolactam and adipic acid. It will also highlight any planned or unplanned outages in Europe.
The published formula is used across the cyclohexane community, as it is a trusted and reliable benchmark.

Updated to Q4 2016
The European cyclohexane (CX) Q4 delta contract was confirmed at a decrease of €2.5/tonne from the third quarter.
Supply in the market is plentiful, linked to an influx of imports in Q3 and production running well in Europe. Although demand was fairly healthy for the majority of Q4, there was some length in supply.
Players continue to await the closure of SABIC’s Wilton facility, which is said by sources to be stopping production at the end of 2016. The producer is expected to supply material from stocks for a period after the stoppage, although there has been no confirmation from the producer.
Once the closure takes place, the European market will become more reliant on imports, with some expecting less available spot material from European producers. As SABIC has the largest nameplate capacity in Europe at 330,000 tonnes/year, there are concerns that the closure will cause a short-term imbalance in the market. With supply plentiful in other regions, imports in 2017 are expected to increase to make up for the loss.
Although demand remains reasonable, buyers are managing inventory levels to avoid heading into the new year with additional material.
