Benzene prices went up across all Asian markets last week, mainly from higher upstream energy prices.

During last week, prices were assessed in the range of US$ 1345-1360/ton FOB Korea as compared to US$ 1285-1335/ton in its previous week.

However, Korean benzene prices fell this week and were assessed at US$ 1320/ton on August 20.

In Japan, prices showed similar trend as in Korea last week. Spot prices were seen in the range of US$ 1350-1365/ton CFR Japan as compared to US$ 1290-1340/ton in its previous week.

But as in Korea, Japanese benzene trends too fell in the current week and were quoted at US$ 1325/ton on August 20.

Last week, Indian prices showed similar trend as in Korea and Japan. Prices were spotted in the range of US$ 1355-1370/ton CFR India last week, vis-à-vis US$ 1295-1345 in its previous week.

On August 20, Indian benzene prices were assessed at US$ 1330/ton.

According to experts, benzene prices showed downward trend in the current week, due to lower upstream energy prices and drop in downstream product prices.
