IHS Chemical Week

Methodology


Chemical Week provides global pricing information including more than 100 price quotations for petrochemical and inorganic chemical products. These include raw materials and feedstocks, intermediates, polymers, synthetic fibers and others.

CW prices are compiled by contact and interviews with producers, buyers, traders, suppliers and other market participants. Our team of price researchers are located in New York, Houston, Sao Paolo, London, Zurich, Berlin, Mumbai, Beijing, Shanghai, Seoul, Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur and Tokyo.

Chemical Week does not seek to offer a comprehensive service detailing all shipments and transactions, rather an indicative service that is broadly representative of the market at any moment in time. Where specific transactions are quoted, they will be in dollars.

Prices reflect recent large-volume transactions and are quoted fob (free-on-board), cif (cost, insurance & freight), c&f (cost & freight), or frteq (freight equalized). References are NWE (Northwest Europe) port for Europe and USG (U.S. Gulf) port for the U.S. For Asia prices are quoted CFR Far East, FOB Korea, CFR China, CFR SEA, and ex-factory China.
