Polyethylene Asia Transcript


ICIS publishes a weekly Asia polyethylene report that covers China and South East Asia import prices.


We also publish a separate weekly polyethylene report that focuses on China’s domestic market and provide a daily price alert service that tracks china’s daily polyethylene import prices.


In the two decades since we launched our first Asia polyethylene report in 1990 we have responded to changes in the polyethylene market with new price assessments and by expanding our coverage of the southeast Asia markets.


Our China-focused polyethylene report was launched in 2006 for assessing the domestic retail trade as part of our response to the growing interest in what is happening in China’s domestic market.


Our price assessments reflect the transactions, bids and offers captured throughout the week.


Our reports also include planned maintenance schedules, and outages which may influence price movements.


We speak to resin processors, traders and producers to obtain information on the week’s trades.


We are able to discern the authenticity of information because we have in-depth market knowledge, an extensive network of industry contacts and a global team of editors reporting from China, Singapore, London and Houston.
