Polystyrene Asia Transcript


The ICIS Asian polystyrene (PS) report includes both the general purpose (GP) and high impact (HIPS) grades and covers several key trading markets, most notably Hong Kong and China.


Hong Kong remains a key trading hub for PS and our report and this quote is pertinent in providing an accurate snapshot of the spot market in China.


The China price quote covers several key trading areas including Shanghai and Shenzhen. Price assessments and commentary for the Chinese domestic markets are also included.


Coverage on the southeast Asia (SE Asia) market completes the round of the PS market in the Asia-Pacific. Besides tracking traits in the market, the report also comments on the demand-supply situation and reviews plant operating rates in Asia.


This provides additional context to our analysis and gives our clients more information with which to make informed decisions.


Working closely with our colleagues and China we poll producers, traders and end users before providing an accurate price assessment.


The ICIS report helps our customers to make sense of the market.


Our detailed and reliable price assessments have made them an essential reference tool, be it in contract negotiations or as an independent source of arbitration.
