Polybutylene Terephthalate Europe Transcript


The weekly ICIS engineering plastics report is an essential source of market intelligence in the polyacetal POM and the polybutylene terephthalate PBT industries.


We gather analyse and assess information to provide complete, detailed views on the POM and the PBT pricing environments. The report includes comprehensive coverage of the quarterly POM and PBT contracts.


Market commentary closely tracks supply and demand, production information and details on feedstock pricing of butane diol and dimethyl terephthalate.


The first quarterly contract price assesses natural-grade POM on a free delivered Northwest Europe basis. The quarterly PBT contract quotes are for filled, unfilled and flame retardant grades. All price assessments are POM on a free delivered Northwest Europe basis in Euros per kg with conversions to US cents per pound.


Quotes for both products reflect settlements between buyers and sellers. All quotes are based on truck loads of 20 to 25 tonnes.


Cargo sizes and specifications vary according to different customers and grades. We report on engineering plastic contract deals ranging from 1,000 to 200,000 tonnes per annum.


The report provides its readers with accurate and reliable market intelligence.
