Phenol Asia Transcript


The ICIS Asian Phenol report provides cost and freight (CFR) China, South East Asia and India assessments which are closely followed by market players. Confirmed deals and buy/sell ideas that support our assessments are provided in full in the report.


We also have coverage of upstream benzene and propylene prices and downstream markets to give our readers an overall sense of the phenol market. We also track the operating status of plants in Asia which shows the supply side of the market.


Understanding the CFR China spot market is complex due to a huge variety of anti-dumping duties that have been levied by the Chinese Government.


In order to provide greater clarity for our subscribers, ICIS provides a normalised CFR China quote based on zero percent anti-dumping duty and 5.5% import duty. This has been welcomed by our subscribers as valuable alternative to the existing benchmark CFR China quote.


Information from producers, traders and buyers of phenol is gathered, analysed and cross checked to ensure it is accurate and can be used as an impartial and accepted reference for business. The ICIS report is the dominant weekly benchmark for the Asian Phenol industry. It is considered an indispensable and a reliable source of information essential for their daily business needs.
