In S E Asian also, October ethylene trends dropped by US$ 115/ton from September and were offered in the range of US$ 1390/ton to US$ 1395/ton.

In October, the US market also witnessed ethylene prices descending from September, due to poor energy market prices and planned cracker restart activity in the region.
