India’s RIL increases prices of PTA and MELT, slashes MEG rates



Reliance Industries Limited (RIL), India’s largest player in polyester value chain, has increased prices of purified terephthalic acid (PTA) and MELT for the coming week. But it has reduced the prices of monoethylene glycol (MEG). Last week, the company had decreased prices of PTA and MELT and maintained MEG prices. It has rolled over prices of PSF at ₹102 per kg for the first fortnight of July.

Recent decline in crude oil prices motivated the petrochemical industry and RIL, in particular, to follow the trend. Indian market follows the price trend of Reliance as it is the dominating player in the country.
