ICIS is implementing a process of rolling consultation on all of its pricing methodologies. This consultation paper is part of this formal process and covers all of the ICIS primary price points included in the polypropylene weekly publications.
The consultation asks both general questions about the suitability of the ICIS pricing methodology and questions addressing specific polypropylene market issues.
