Paraxylene price falls in Asia and Europe, up in US

YarnsandFibers News Bureau 2015-12-09 07:28:29 –

Asian paraxylene markers were down US$6 a ton FOB Korea and CFR Taiwan/China in the last week of November.

Nominations for December contract prices were at US$820-830 a ton CFR Asia.

Paraxylene prices in Asian markets fell on the week amid heavy selling interest and weakness in upstream isomer- mixed xylene markets.

Meanwhile, December Asian contract price was nominated. Contracts remained unsettled despite production economics were marginally positive.

BP announced that it has put up its Decatur, Alabama, Petrochemicals complex for sale.

In US, paraxylene spot tracked Asian movement while lack of liquidity muted spot movement. US-Asia arbitrage was still attractive.

US spot paraxylene was up US$5 a ton FOB USG on the week. The market continued discussions in a range of US$740-$798 a ton.

In Europe, paraxylene spot was down US$7.50 a ton while virgin and isomer grade mixed xylenes were at US$544 a ton.
