The rise in fossil fuel prices from last year and the worsening of the situation in Ukraine, the international price of naphtha, which is a basic raw material for the production of petrochemicals, is soaring. Due to these effects, principal raw materials, auxiliary raw materials, utility and distribution costs also continue to rise.

We have been working to improve profits by reducing costs but we have reached the limit of what we can do ourselves and we have determined that this price revision is necessary for stable supply in the future.

We may have to consider further price revisions if the price of naphtha continues to increase due to the unpredictable international situation.
