ICIS Launches Asia Recycled Polyethylene Pricing Intelligence

London and Singapore, 24 March 2022 — ICIS, a global source of Independent Commodity Intelligence Services, announces a new pricing service for recycled polyethylene (R-PE) in Asia. The new weekly pricing service offers benchmarkable pricing and valuable intelligence to help traders make effective buying and selling decisions and bring transparency into contract negotiations.

Recycled plastics markets remain complex. The new pricing service provides a complete view of R-HDPE and R-LDPE markets and shines a light into an otherwise opaque Asia Pacific market with reliable weekly pricing coverage.

The R-PE Pricing Service provides benefits and insights for all stakeholders in the recycled plastics supply chain. For FMCGs with public sustainability targets linked to the usage of recycled plastic, a ready view on pricing dynamics for this market will help them understand how much they should be paying for the material and how market conditions may impact overall costs. For mechanical recyclers, who are buying bales to feed their processes, insights into industry pricing will support their selling decisions. It will further provide convertors with independent pricing to benchmark against and help virgin polymer producers keep track on prices to understand the impact on their markets.

Louise Boddy, Head of Strategy – Sustainability at ICIS commented, “This is an important addition to our pricing tool portfolio and will help our industry partners understand how price and market movements potentially impact their sourcing strategy and overall cost and sustainability ambitions.”

R-PE pricing is an important part of a circular plastics economy. The quickly growing volumes in this market mean increased price risk and the need for indexation in contracts to a reliable index. Even without indexation, the need for reliable pricing is required for negotiation and planning.

Louise Boddy, Head of Strategy – Sustainability concluded: “This latest pricing tool complements current tools providing intelligence on R-PET in Asia, R-PE pricing in other regions, and our Recycling Supply Trackers. It is another important step in our circular plastics solutions, which have already proved to be of immense value to our customers. It will help meet both pricing and sourcing challenges for this increasingly important sector.”

Access to the right tools and expertise can accelerate confident procurement decision-making, now and in the future
