Vinyl acetate monomer Asia Transcript

ICIS covers the Asia-Pacific vinyl acetate monomer (VAM) market and provides four key price assessments reflecting import prices for 500 to 2,000 tonne cargoes in northeast Asia (NE Asia), southeast Asia (SE Asia), south Asia and China.

The cost & freight (CFR) NE Asia spot quote reflects transactions and market discussions in the region. The assessment may reflect domestic prices in Korea and Taiwan.

Domestic trades with Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia and Thailand are also taken into consideration in the final assessment of CFR SE Asia prices.

Access to our global reporting network is important for monitoring shifting trade flows from Europe and the US, as more countries target China because of the global economic slowdown.

Our commentary includes information regarding China’s domestic transactions and market conditions, as key market participants in China often refer to our spot prices as a reference to how much they might consider paying for imports.

We work closely with our colleagues in China who have access to comprehensive information on the Chinese domestic market.

Additionally, trades for bulk cargos into west coast Indian ports and Pakistan are covered in the CFR south Asia range.

Many producers, consumers and traders that contribute to the ICIS VAM report in Asia reference their monthly settlement prices from our numbers. Our customers are, therefore, assured of accurate and representative market intelligence.
