Apr '09
Propylene prices continued to grow in the Far East Region for the fourth consecutive week. Propylene prices for FOB South Korea rose substantially from last week's levels of US $801-806 per ton to $876-878, a gain of nearly $175 per ton in two weeks.

But a reverse trend was noticed in European markets which had either risen or stayed flat in the previous few weeks. Propylene (polymerization level), FD Northwest Europe fell considerably from €526-436 per metric ton to €422-432 per metric ton and shed the all the gains of the previous week.
