ABSTRACT
The article presents updates on market trends in the chemical industry. Naphtha spot cargoes in Europe have risen to a $580-585/tonne, with March swaps seen at $584-585/tonne. Asian propylene prices fell to a low of $1,050-1,080/tonne, as a temporary oversupply from Japan weighed on prices amid thin trade. Mixed xylene prices in Europe are unchanged from last week's $830-850/tonne range.
