Ethylene prices for the Far East region, (FOB South Korea) and (FOB Japan), also continued to remain stable and in turn retained prices quoted in the previous week. Ethylene prices in both the markets were quoted at $595 per metric ton.

In the Europe region, prices of ethylene in FD Northwest Europe stayed flat, but those of CIF Northwest Europe fell by 6-7 percent. FD Northwest Europe continued to be quoted at €625-630 per metric ton and CIF Northwest Europe fell to $705-715 per metric ton.
