The article discusses the possible decline of styrene prices by the end of 2006, according to Bertrand Jausseme, senior vice president of purchasing and base chemicals exports at Samsung Total Petrochemical. Asian styrene prices could fall by up to 12% by the end of 2006 because demand from China is expected to weaken, according to Jausseme.
