Market prices of Asian ethylene spot were firm, mainly due to tight supply on account of ongoing maintenance of Japanese crackers. It was reported that, two new cracker plants in Southeast Asia are running their plants at 60-70 percent operational rates, which is in turn providing support to market price.

In the Northeast Asia market, offers for shipment in the second half of April and first half of May were $1260-1300 per ton (CFR Northeast Asia), but the baseline level of purchase intention stood at around $1200 per ton.

Demand for shipment in the second half of April was steady, but supply was limited, sale intention was at $1250 per ton.
