2-Methyl-1,3-Butadiene Price Trend for the First Half of 2023


2-Methyl-1,3-Butadiene prices in the Asian market continued with oscillating patterns in H1’23.

But holidays for Chinese New Year hindered the recovery, and demands stooped back, which brought the price trend down again.

2-Methyl-1,3-Butadiene Price Trends

After the holiday season, factories started churning out the product much faster, oversupplying the inventories, but market demands didn’t rebound to supplement the increased production rates. These events made the 2-Methyl-1,3-Butadiene /Isoprene falter throughout the second quarter. Overall bearish market sentiments were observed.


2-Methyl-1,3-Butadiene prices fluctuated in the first half of the year 2023 in the European market. The market was saturated with rubber products and demands from the downstream automotive and tire industries remained bearish. Inventories had no room for more supplies amidst limited offtakes. Improved supplies with freight restoration also couldn’t help the market much. Occasional demands appeared, but existing stocks easily catered to those. Overall, the Isoprene market sentiments remained bearish.

North America

The North American Isoprene market struggled throughout the said period. Increased interest rates impacted the automotive sector severely, reducing the queries for 2-Methyl-1,3-Butadiene in the American market. Heavy inventory volumes, too, contributed to keeping the price trend sluggish. Some occasional temporary upturns in demand were observed but could not influence the price trend positively. Prices returned to the downhill track after very short-lived hikes. Overall, bearish market sentiments were observed in the first half of 2023.

Analyst Insight

According to Procurement Resource, the price trend for 2-Methyl-1,3-Butadiene are expected to continue the same sluggish patterns given the overstocked inventories.
