Ethylene dichloride Asia, Europe & US Transcript


ICIS publishes a weekly global report on ethylene dichloride or EDC which covers the markets in Asia, United States and Europe.


The report tracks CFR northeast and southeast Asia prices, as well as FOB US Gulf and western Europe prices. Feedstock ethylene prices are also included.


Our global team of editors assess prices based on information supplied by our extensive list of market sources which include buyers, producers and traders.


Asia is the main destination for exports of EDC and our report tracks these as they happen. Deep sea export business is almost exclusively for the production of polyvinyl chloride, although there is significant demand for EDC from non-vinyl buyers in China, this is minor compared with the demand from the vinyl sector.


Price differentials between the different end-use sectors therefore result, with non-vinyl buyers willing to pay a premium price to secure EDC supply.


With its global outlook, based on strong regional reporting, our information on spot-transactions, supply-demand balances, exports and imports as well as contract price negotiations and settlements, provides readers with a very comprehensive overview of all the factors impacting EDC markets.


Our readers can and do keep on top of market movements and use our information as a reference for their own transactions
