LONDON, September 15, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- ICIS pricing, the leading price reporting service for the global chemical industry, has launched a weekly Asia Pacific C6 metallocene linear low density polyethylene (mLLDPE) price report.

The C6 mLLDPE market price has shown a degree of volatility and, due to increasing competition and new production capacities, prices are expected to remain volatile in the future, says Beelin Chow, Editor of Polyethylene Asia.

Consumption of C6 mLLDPE film is expected to grow significantly in the flexible packaging industry. Due to its enhanced features which give improved stability, strength, stretch ability and puncture resistance, it delivers increased product quality whilst using less energy.

The new report covers C6 mLLDPE price assessments for CFR China, commentary on C6 mLLDPE in Southeast Asia, as well as on related Polyethylene markets including C8 mLLDPE and C4 LDPE, plus insights into the Chinese polymer market.

The weekly Asia Pacific C6 mLLDPE report will bring transparency to the market and ensure that players have the independent information they need for negotiating fair market prices.

ICIS publishes trusted pricing information which is used as the benchmark for many polymers and commodities. ICIS pricing reports deliver market intelligence and analysis of the factors driving the chemical industry, which is used to underpin commercial contracts and to support key business decisions.
