May '14
The prices of ethylene increased in Asia and the US in the last fortnight ending April 30, 2014, compared to the previous fortnight ending April 15, due to limited product availability in those regions. However, prices decreased in Europe in the last fortnight owing to ample product availability in the region coupled with weak downstream demand.

In S E Asia, the average price of ethylene in the last fortnight worked out to $1465/ton, up 1.38 percent vis-à-vis the average price of $1445/ton in the previous fortnight. On May 7, 2014, ethylene prices were assessed at $1465/ton.
 
In the US market, the average price of ethylene surged up by 4.76 percent to 55 cents/pound in the last fortnight, as compared to the average price of 52.50 cents/pound in the previous fortnight.
 
In Europe, the average price of ethylene decreased by 1.27 percent to $1165/ton in the last fortnight, as against the average price of $1180/ton in the previous fortnight.
