SINGAPORE, August 12, 2011 -

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 markets.

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 resources.

“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.
