ICIS has added three new CFR quotes to its Asian polyethylene coverage

23 September, 2019

Vietnam is fast becoming a hotspot for imports in southeast Asia (SEA), particularly for US-origin polyethylene (PE) cargoes that cannot enter China due to the additional tariffs. PE imports from all origins are duty free in Vietnam and PE players within SEA need direct references to Vietnam prices.

With increased interest around Vietnam, ICIS has now added three new CFR Vietnam quotes – low density polyethylene (LDPE) film, linear low density polyethylene (LLDPE) film and high density polyethylene (HDPE) film – to give you greater visibility on the market prices in Vietnam for contract and spot negotiations. If you are a key market player with a commercial interest in Vietnam markets, confidently procure PE with access to all of the following:

  • CFR China, CFR SE Asia All Origins, CFR SE Asia Dutiable, CFR SE Asia Non-Dutiable andrequest-a-free-sample-report-nowthe newly added CFR Vietnam All origins,

  • Feedstock prices for ethylene
  • Production news and operating schedules
