Benchmark pricing assessments and trustworthy analysis

Unbiased intelligence to support the decision-making process

A key feedstock for the petrochemicals industry, propylene is most commonly produced as a co-product of ethylene. The dominant downstream sector is polypropylene (PP), but propylene is also used to produce acrylonitrile (ACN), propylene oxide (PO), cumene, acrylic acid, and alcohols.

Planned maintenance turnarounds in the spring and autumn are key to managing expectations but unplanned outages – big or small – can have a major impact on the market and pricing. The June-November hurricane season in the US Gulf often leads to disruption in production and trade flows.

ICIS provides reliable and trustworthy weekly price assessments for propylene in Asia, China, Europe, and the USA. Daily market intelligence is also available for coverage of the Asian markets. Our locally-based expert reporters leverage market input from buyers, sellers and distributors, leading to unparalleled coverage of the propylene value chain across the globe.
