Methyl ethyl ketone Asia Transcript


ICIS publishes a weekly methyl ethyl ketone (MEK) report in Asia. The report carries two cost and freight (CFR) quotes that track import prices of MEK in northeast Asia (NE Asia) and southeast Asia (SE Asia).


South Korea is the main market in NE Asia, while Indonesia, Malaysia and Thailand are the key SE Asian markets.


The price assessment is based on bulk shipments ranging from 200 to 500 tonnes in southeast Asia and 500 to 1000 tonnes in South Korea.


Details of bids, offers and transactions are outlined in the commentary after excessive contact with producers, traders and distributors active in the market.


We also track Chinese domestic prices which have a strong bearing on China’s monthly exports. The Chinese are mostly spot sellers and they are quick to cut exports if the domestic market is more lucrative.


Given the importance of supply site information, the latest market intelligence on planned shutdowns is provided.


ICIS has covered the Asian MEK market for over 15 years and our reports are essential to our customers as it provides accurate and trustworthy information which is crucial to make key business decisions.
