Asia ethylene-naphtha spread jumps back to June Levels, Europe follows
Summary: 
With global ethylene market dominated by polyethylene demand and naphtha and ethane based supply, the change in spreads between them become ardently important. Asian ethylene industry historically has expanded with naphtha crackers, although cheap ethane and coal based feedstock projects are justifying massive investments now. The region will see coal/methanol based ethylene capacities being built over the next five years.

In April 2015, Asian ethylene-naphtha spread hit a record high amid bullish ethylene markets. The spread jumped US$193 during the month on an average as ethylene prices were under pressure of tight supplies. The CFR Northeast Asia ethylene marker averaged US$1,368-1,370 a ton while the Southeast marker averaged US$1,423-1,425 a ton, both increasing US$214-240 on the month. The spread was over and above the US$269 a ton recorded in March.
