Polystyrene US Transcript

The US polystyrene (PS) report covers domestic prices for general purpose polystyrene (GPPS) and high impact polystyrene (HIPS).

ICIS quotes prices in the US on a delivered (DEL) US-basis for bulk and packaged material.

The report covers production news, demand and feedstock costs.

Margins in the PS market have become more stable over the past year, so price variations depend more on feedstock costs, especially that of benzene, so the report gives an overview of the benzene market each week.

Because the US market is constantly buffeted by internationally traded feedstock prices, the ICIS report provides a useful global view of US market conditions and how global trends effect pricing going forward.
