About Margin Analytics

Make sense of business cash costs and cash margins

ICIS pricing’s weekly margin analytics are designed to complement ICIS’ highly regarded pricing data. They assess producer cash costs and cash margins by modelling raw material and key variable manufacturing costs, co-product credits and product yields across the business from feedstock, such as naphtha, through olefin to polymers, including polyethylene and polypropylene.

Combining ICIS pricing’s benchmark price assessments with feedstock yield models from Linde Engineering, the reports provide a clear indication of the direction of business cash costs and cash margins, forming a basis for informed market positioning by sellers, buyers and traders.
