ICIS, a leading provider of petrochemical market intelligence, has launched Forward Curves for film grade Linear Low Density Polyethylene (LLDPE) and Polypropylene (PP) Flat Yarn. Assessed daily on a cost and freight (CFR) China basis, the ICIS Forward Curves provide independent assessments for 12-month forward price points for daily swaps transactions using proprietary methodology developed by our in-house team of experts.
The ICIS LLDPE and PP Flat Yarn Forward Curves provide an independent basis for marked to market of commodity derivatives in Asia which are increasingly being used as tools for managing raw material price risks. They serve as an objective reference point for LLDPE and PP flat yarn swaps discussions and transactions, and enable counterparties to manage their exposure to risks more effectively.
“The Forward Curves facilitate the negotiations and transactions of LLDPE and PP flat yarn swaps in Asia and hence enable resins producers, plastics processors and traders, as well as FMCGs to hedge their raw material price risks,” said ICIS’ Head of Asia markets, Chow Bee Lin.
This new risk management tool is presented as a window within the ICIS Dashboard. The new Forward Curve Window combined with the ICIS Dashboard will provide you with the tools you need to create a comprehensive view of the market, allowing you to operate more effectively within the Asian polyolefin industry.
