3-Hydroxypropanoic Acid Price Trend for the Second Quarter of 2022


3-Hydroxypropanoic Acid is obtained via the action of a recombinant Escherichia coli strain on glycerol. Hence, the price of feedstock glycerol directly influences the price trends for 3-Hydroxypropanoic Acid. During the first quarter, the feed and ethanol prices increased owing to the surging crude oil prices, thereby causing the glycerol prices to inflate. The glycerol price averaged 2139 USD/MT CFR Shanghai in the first quarter. Whereas in the second quarter the prices began to dip due to the mismatch in market dynamics. The high upstream costs, production cuts, and decreased buyers’ confidence in the market caused the prices to fall in the second quarter.


The price trends of 3-Hydroxypropanoic Acid and feedstock glycerol remained strong during the first half of the current year. The acute energy crisis and runaway inflation caused all the commodity prices to increase, with glycerol no exception. The prices averaged 2752 USD/MT CFR Hamburg during the first quarter. Despite the rising costs and supply-side constraints, the price trends remained strong owing to the robust downstream demands.

North America

The price trends in the US domestic arena closely mimicked that of the Asian market. They soared during the first quarter amid supply shortages and rising freight and feedstock costs. The glycerol prices were recorded at around 2812 USD/MT in the first quarter. However, the demand slacked, and the prices weakened towards the end of June.

Production Processes:

  • Production of 3-Hydroxypropanoic acid from Glycerol using Klebsiella pneumoniae

A recombinant Escherichia coli strain can produce 3-HP from glycerol in the presence of vitamin B12 (coenzyme B12). However, the production of 3-HP in recombinant Klebsiella pneumoniae strains does not require the addition of the vitamin as it can naturally synthesize vitamin B12. Under proper aeration conditions, the mixture is fed in the glycerol fed-batch reactor, and the subsequent product mixture obtained is subject to further differentiation to separate the desired 3PH.
