Paraxylene-PX, PTA, MEG - Contract and Spot Prices in Asia

Polyester Chain Prices: PX, PTA, MEG and Fiber Prices Weekly Report

Polyester intermediate and fiber prices have clearly risen in the past weeks in Asia, over a jump of crude oil prices and stronger demand for polyester fibers in China. Our weekly report covers the polyester chain in Asia, including PX (paraxylene), PTA (purified terephthalic acid), MEG (mono-ethylene glycol), polyester chips, and polyester staple and filament prices. Asian Contract Prices (ACPs) are also available for the PX, PTA and MEG markets in Asia, with 5-year charts and downloadable historical data.

Polyester intermediate prices have clearly risen in the past weeks on the international market and on the domestic market in China.

Such a new increase of PTA and MEG prices is partly due to anticipations of higher prices in line with a new jump of crude oil prices at the start of the year.

Demand from polyester fiber producers is also improving with staple fiber and filament producers being able to pass higher material costs to the textile industry.

Glycol prices have especially surged once again with CIF China being up 56$ per metric ton or 6% in the last seven days.

Transportation issues have disrupted supplies and boosted prices, as a consequence.

In China, MEG prices have gained 370 yuan per MT or 4.8% whereas PTA prices were rising 200 yuan or 3.5%.

Prices are also soaring on polyester chip and fiber markets returning to their long-term rally.

Paraxylene contract prices have been settled at $910 CFR Asia in December and have already reached $926 CIF China on spot markets.

Sinopec has further raised its PTA nomination for January deliveries, although very slightly.
