ICIS has enhanced its Asian bitumen reporting

Singapore, 14 Nov 2012 – ICIS, the trusted market intelligence provider for the global chemical and energy industries, has enhanced its reporting on the Asian bitumen markets by covering all the key participating regions/countries in a single weekly report. Coverage includes China, east Asia, southeast Asia, Australia and the Middle East.

The new report, ICIS C1 Asia Bitumen Market Weekly, provides more in-depth coverage of the region’s trade dynamics, production data, news and market updates, freight information, price assessments, and analysis of the supply-and-demand situation. This enables market participants to have a complete view of factors contributing to changes in trading scenarios and prices. No other report in the market delivers all of these vital information in one single report.

Another key feature of the report is the extensive coverage of China’s import/export markets and trade activities, including domestic price and freight information. China is the largest bitumen import market in Asia and the world’s second largest bitumen consumer next to the US. Thorough and precise insight into China’s bitumen markets is essential for industry players who are looking at Asia as part of their business growth strategy.  

ICIS Asia Editorial Director Steve Tan explains the value to customers of the new ICIS bitumen report:

“The new bitumen report is truly a marriage of two great strengths from our editorial teams based in Guangzhou and Singapore: our in-depth expertise of the Chinese domestic market, plus the comprehensive coverage of regional trade and demand. At ICIS, we are constantly looking to expand the coverage of our product portfolios to better serve our customers, and bitumen is one of the key growth areas identified,” he said.
