2-Ethylhexyl Acrylate Price Trend for the First Half of 2023


2-Ethylhexyl Acrylate prices in the Asia-Pacific region had a mixed run in the first half of 2023. Prices were majorly influenced by the prices and supply of feedstocks 2-Ethylhexanol (2EH) and acrylic acid. Q1 2023 started with oversupplied inventories and little to no demands from downstream adhesive and coating industries. Hence, the prices of 2-EHA kept on the lower side of the curve in the first quarter. As Q2 arrived, a fall in feedstock prices was observed. The price of 2EH (2-Ethylhexanol) observed a 24% year-on-year decline in June’23 in the Chinese markets. As the present inventory stocks could support the existing muted demands, the price trends for 2-Ethylhexyl Acrylate continued the downward path.


European market observed southward trends for 2-Ethylhexyl acrylate in H1 2023. The falling feedstock prices and feverish demands shrouded the 2-Ethylhexyl acrylate market. The construction industry has a big share in consumer strata of 2-Ethylhexyl acrylate, but this sector was the most stressed business in Europe in the said period. As the demands stayed muted, inventories saturated the market, causing the upstream production costs to lower, leaving no room for improvement.

North America

The North American 2-Ethylhexyl acrylate market behaved no differently than the international markets. Price trends followed a subsiding curve in H1 2023. With a rise in interest rates construction sector took a serious hit, which considerably reduced the demand for construction-related and allied materials. The freight normalization and easy availability of feedstock materials further reduced production costs. With plunging demands and oversupply, the 2-Ethylhexyl acrylate prices performed poorly in the American market.
