ICIS further expands its polyethylene coverage with a new southeast Asian report

03 April 2014

ICIS is pleased to announce the launch of the new ICIS southeast Asia Polyethylene price report – an addition to the growing suite of plastics reports. This new report complements the established ICIS Asia PE price report, which is already widely used as a price benchmark across Asia.

“The southeast Asian polyethylene (PE) markets are increasingly active. PE consumption in the region is expected to reach more than 6 million tonnes by 2016, reaffirming the need for market participants to have timely and comprehensive updates of the latest market situation in the region,” says Trixie Yap, ICIS Market Editor and author of the new ICIS southeast Asian reports.

Accurate information is crucial as domestic PE prices have been more volatile than import prices (which are typically negotiated at month end). This new ICIS report offers market players previously unavailable details on the weekly price nuances of individual domestic markets in southeast Asia.

This new report provides valuable support for domestic and international market players interested in the region by providing the intelligence  required to build a more accurate and informed picture and take advantage of the growing opportunities in the region.
