SINGAPORE, September 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
ICIS, a trusted provider of global petrochemical market pricing information, has expanded its suite of margin reports by launching three new weekly reports covering the ethylene glycol market for Asia, Europe, and the US.
Feedstock prices continue to be volatile and impact ethylene glycol production margins. The ICIS Ethylene Glycol margin reports give industry players crucial information on how multiple market factors are affecting business costs and cash margins.
The three new margin reports provide additional information to the existing ICIS Ethylene Glycol price reports for Asia, Europe and the US markets.
ICIS combines its benchmark price assessments with oxygen yield model data provided by industrial gas consultants Esprit Associates and cracker feedstock yield model data from Linde Engineering. This gives industry players an authoritative and independent measure of expected ethylene glycol production costs and profits. A range of business fundamentals are also factored in. This extensive market insight allows buyers, traders and sellers to have a more informed basis for their commercial decisions.
The Asian and European reports cover integrated production from naphtha, while the US report covers integrated production from both ethane and light naphtha. All reports cover standalone (or non-integrated) production from ethylene.
ICIS is the world's largest petrochemical market information provider, and has fast-growing energy and fertilizer divisions.
Our aim is to give companies in global commodities markets a competitive advantage by delivering trusted pricing data, high value news, analysis and independent consulting, enabling our customers to make better-informed trading and planning decisions.
With a global staff of more than 650, ICIS has people based in Houston, Washington, New York, London, Milan, Montpellier, Dusseldorf, Mumbai, Singapore, Guangzhou, Beijing, Shanghai and Perth. The team covers over 120 commodity markets and has in-depth knowledge across markets in upstream and downstream sectors in Europe, Africa, the Middle East, Asia-Pacific and the Americas.
The business is a division of Reed Business Information Limited, part of Reed Elsevier.
