Paraxylene-Orthoxylene Europe Transcript


The European paraxlyene (PX) and orthoxylene (OX) report shows a monthly contract price for both markets as well as weekly spot quotations.


The report is generated after conversations with buyers, sellers and traders on a weekly basis.


The contract price is a free delivered (FD) northwest Europe (NWE) quotation, while spot prices are on a free on board (FOB) Rotterdam basis.


As well as discussing price developments, the report covers downstream purified terephthalic acid (PTA), polyethylene terephthalate (PET) and phthalic anhydride (PA) market developments.


The report also touches on developments upstream such as crude oil fluctuations and production issues such as planned and unplanned outages.


Buyers and sellers rely on the report to give them the accurate information they need to make informed decisions in the market.
