Polyethylene Terephthalate Asia Transcript


ICIS produces a weekly report on polyethylene terephthalate (PET) in Asia. The report contains spot price assessments for fibre grade, bottle grade and film grade PET chips.


Asia spot prices for bottle grade chips are quoted on a free-on-board (FOB) basis across five regions – South Korea, China, Taiwan, southeast Asia (SE Asia) and India.


The report also tracks cost & freight (CFR) northeast Asia (NE Asia) India spot prices for fibre grade, as well as prices for film grade chips on a FOB East Asia-basis.


We also provide a round-up of schedules and any unexpected shutdowns to give readers an overview of the supply situation.


Feedstock purified terephthalic acid (PTA) and monoethylene glycol (MEG) prices are an important driver of PET prices, therefore, the report includes feedstock market information and price quotations.


We speak to a cross-section of market players, producers, end users and traders to gather the information for our reports. This is then analysed and checked to eliminate bias and ensure we provide the most accurate information available on the market.


Subscribers find the report useful as it provides them with crucial up-to-date data that helps them stay ahead of the latest developments across PET markets. They use the assessments as an essential aid for their own business financial and pricing discussions.
