ICIS pricing, the leading price reporting service for the global chemical industry, has added a weekly Africa Caustic Soda report to its portfolio of trusted price assessments covering the caustic soda markets in Asia Pacific, China, Europe, Latin America and the US.
Africa is a major caustic soda market with strong growth opportunities. It is home to leading international paper producers and metal mining industries, with planned world-scale alumina capacities that will increase future demand for caustic soda.
The new ICIS pricing weekly Africa Caustic Soda report covers caustic soda solid spot prices in South Africa (CFR Durban) and East Africa (CFR Kenya), liquid caustic soda spot prices in North Africa (FOB North Africa) and South Africa (CFR Durban) as well as extensive coverage of caustic soda market activities in Northern, Eastern, Western and Southern Africa.
The report will bring transparency to the continent's caustic soda market. It helps market players understand the complexities of the market as well as giving them the market intelligence they need to make solid commercial decisions.
ICIS publishes trusted pricing information and its existing caustic soda price reports are widely used as benchmarks by the market. ICIS pricing reports provide market intelligence and analysis of the factors driving the chemical industry, and are used to underpin commercial contracts and to support key business decisions.
