1,3-Propanediol Price Trend for the First Half of 2022


The price trends of 1,3-Propanediol remained strong in the Asian arena during the first quarter. The soaring crude oil prices caused uncertainty in the market supply along with the production cuts from the industries. The market shortages amid the booming demand from the end-user industries kept the prices adrift. The cost of feedstock acrylic acid averaged 2860 USD/MT in the Indian market and around 2370 USD/MT in the Chinese domestic market.

However, the price trends for 1,3-Propanediol exhibited an oscillating pattern in the second quarter. The crude oil prices began to relax due to the increased shipments from Saudi Arabia. These supplies supported the renewed production after the upliftment of covid restrictions. The increased outputs helped streamline the market demand; hence the prices stabilized.


During the first quarter, despite the high feedstock prices, production cuts, and acute energy crisis, the 1,3-Propanediol prices soared owing to the strong demand from downstream sectors. However, this abnormal inflation caused by the European decision to stop the oil supply from Russia led to the stagnation of the European market. The prices plateaued and began to fall consistently due to the demand destruction and reduced buyers’ confidence owing to the rumours of a global recession

North America

The price trends of 1,3-Propanediol in the American market aligned with the global outlook. The acrylic acid feedstock prices soared during the first quarter and averaged 2180 USD/MT. However, the constricted market supply and shortages could not keep up with the demand dynamics. Due to this market mismatch, the prices stabilized and then plateaued in the US domestic arena.
