2-Ethylhexan-1-ol Price Trend and Forecast

Regional Price Overview

Get the latest insights on price movement and trend analysis of 2-Ethylhexan-1-ol in different regions across the world (Asia, Europe, North America, Latin America, and the Middle East & Africa).

Hydroformylation of propylene produces n-butyraldehyde, which can be done in a standalone plant or as the initial step in a fully integrated facility. In addition to 2-ethylhexanol, most facilities produce n-butanol and isobutanol. Oxo alcohols are alcohols that have been produced in this manner. The general process is quite similar to the Guerbet reaction, which is another way to make it.

2-Ethylhexan-1-ol Price Trends

The price of raw material propylene (Shandong) did not move significantly during the first quarter of 2022. The mainstream propylene price in Shandong was 8,400-8,500 RMB/MT on Friday, and the market was at a standstill. On the positive side, crude oil prices varied and climbed, particularly over the weekend, while the cost side remained solid.

On the negative side, downstream demand was sluggish to respond, and the major cause was stiff demand. Due to the epidemic's impact, traffic in some places had recently been bad, and factory operating rates had plummeted. As a result, the prices of 2-ethylhexan-1-ol fluctuated accordingly.
