The article reports that International Chemical Information Service (ICIS) Pricing has launched a daily Chinese-language polyvinyl chloride (PVC) China report. The report delivers daily price assessments for north, east and south China markets, as well as incisive daily commentary on the market. Acetylene-based PVC production in China has surged from 5m tons in 2003 to 10m tons in 2005, which has resulted in oversupply and China becoming a PVC exporter, says Alfred Wong, ICIS China bureau chief.
