Phenol US Transcript

The weekly ICIS report on the US Gulf (USG) market for phenol includes both contract and spot assessments.

The contract price generally moves monthly and lags the upstream benzene developments by about one month. The spot price is an free on board (FOB) export price and can move weekly or as market conditions dictate.

Information in the report includes input from buyers, sellers and traders, as well as a comprehensive look at the upstream and downstream factors that can influence pricing.

The report includes monthly contract pricing for benzene, which is a key cost ingredient in phenol production. Supply and demand issues are also discussed in the report including production problems and plant outages. Monthly trade data rounds out the analysis to deliver a full picture or the US phenol market.

Many subscribers find the report invaluable, and use it to establish their own pricing terms with suppliers or customers.
