CFR China prices of O-Xylene were assessed at US$ 1480/ton levels.

In Europe, O-Xylene prices showed downward trend due to sluggish support from the downstream market. Downstream market sentiment was unexciting in the region. O-Xylene prices were assessed at US$ 1370/ton, lower by US$ 10/ton as compared to its previous week. Prices were stable at US$ 1370/ton FOB Rotterdam during the week.

Initial contract prices of O-Xylene for November were settled at € 1120/ton FD NWE. This represents a decline of € 20/ton as compared to the contract prices of last month. The price decrease was attributed to lower upstream product prices, improved availability of the product and weak downstream demand.
