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.
