2-Ethylhexanoic Acid Price Trend for the First Half of 2023


The Asia-Pacific market in the first quarter of 2023 suffered from the weak performance of the feedstock market and slow demand from the downstream industries, which hampered the growth of 2-Ethylhexanoic acid. Among the downstream industries, the paints and coatings segment remained stable and somehow supported the market of 2-Ethylhexanoic acid.

The second quarter further saw a major decline as the construction, plasticizers, and upstream industries showed weak performance, and in view of this, some of the manufacturing units had to reduce their production rates, adversely affecting the prices of 2-Ethylhexanoic acid.


The European countries witnessed a positive trend in the first quarter of 2023 in the 2-Ethylhexanoic acid market as the downstream industries supported the growth of 2-Ethylhexanoic acid prices. In addition to this, the consumption rates of consumers also improved in the region, which was balanced by the steady supply of imports from Asian countries. However, in the second quarter, the trend shifted towards a downward track as the feedstock costs and demand from the construction, paints, and cosmetics sectors slumped, pushing the price trend of 2-Ethylhexanoic acid towards a negative zone.
North America

The first quarter of 2023 proved to be fruitful for the 2-Ethylhexanoic acid market as the prices inclined gradually. The market sentiments of 2-Ethylhexanoic acid were supported by rising demand and a high influx of new orders from both domestic and international players. However, in the second quarter, as seen in European nations, the prices began to decline due to a fall in industrial activities. The poor performance of the raw material market and the low interest of buyers in this sector further helped in the downward movement of the 2-Ethylhexanoic acid price trend.
