2-Methylpropan-1-ol Price Trends and Forecast

Regional Price Overview

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

2-methylpropan-1-ol or isobutanol is produced by the carbonylation of propylene. Hydroformylation, which produces a combination of isobutyraldehyde and butyraldehyde, is the more prevalent process used in industry.

Due to limited availability and low inventories, 2-methylpropan-1-ol prices in North America increased in the first half of Q1 2022. The price was observed to be 1990 USD/MT FOB Louisiana at the beginning of the quarter. However, by the end, it was steady due to weak demand from downstream markets such as agriculture, automobiles, and adhesives.

Low import demands from Europe and Asia from the United States as a result of the Russia-Ukraine war and oversupply in the region lowered the prices. Prices rose in the first half of Q1 2022 as a result of the impact on supply caused by low raw material costs and logistics issues throughout the region.

2-methylpropan-1-ol, is a type of alcohol derived from renewable organic materials (biomass) such as corn, wheat, and sugarcane. This biofuel was developed to assist in hastening the transition to renewable transportation fuels that reduce overall greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. When blended with gasoline, isobutanol can be used to fuel automobiles and other vehicles. It can be blended with gasoline or ethanol to improve biofuel performance in a fuel blend.
