ICIS Pricing Launches Regional Report for Sulphuric Acid Markets in Asia
SINGAPORE, August 12, 2011 /PRNewswire/ –
ICIS pricing, the leading price reporting service for the global
chemical industry, has leveraged off its local Chinese operations to launch
a weekly Asia Sulphuric Acid report with comprehensive coverage of the
complex and constantly-evolving Chinese market, and additional commentary on
Japanese and Korean exports.
The new report covers sulphuric acid prices for FOB China, CFR Southeast
Asia and CFR India, including contract price assessments based on CFR
Northeast and Southeast Asia. Apart from sulphuric acid pricing trends, the
report also offers up-to-date commentary with market updates, Japanese and
Korean exports, supply and demand trends, production news from the region
including metal markets, price trends for related metals, freight rates and
schedules, as well as some coverage of both the upstream and the downstream
Gabriela Wheeler, markets editor of the Asia sulphuric acid report,
believes ICIS is in an excellent position to offer a comprehensive analysis
of the Asian market situation owing to its extensive portfolio and years of
expertise covering the chemical and fertilizers industry; and further
strengthened by its well-established ICIS/Pentasul and ICIS/Chemease China
“We are confident that our new sulphuric acid report will fill the
current void of information as there are no other publications focusing
specifically on regional sulphuric acid trade in Asia.
“Given the recent increase in base metals prices, global sulphuric acid
demand for metal leaching has intensified and is expected to continue
growing during the next several years; and strong fertilizer prices have
also led to an increase in demand for sulphuric acid used in the production
of phosphate fertilizers.
“Additionally, China is preparing to become a major player in the
sulphuric acid export arena, and market participants are very interested in
finding out information about developments within the Chinese industry,
which we intend to cover as well,” she said.
ICIS pricing’s extensive coverage of the chemical markets gives you the
comprehensive detail along with the bigger picture you need to better
understand Asia’s sulphuric acid markets.
