Acetyl Oxide Price Trend and Forecast

Regional Price Overview

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

Acetyl oxide prices are affected by the prices of raw material acetic acid. Soaring acetic acid prices pushed up the acetyl oxide market as the cost of transportation from China to other Asian countries rose. On March 11th, the chemical's price had risen to 1275 USD/MT, up 20.62 percent from the day before's price of 1057 USD/MT.

The product's supply has reduced as a result of increased crude oil and natural gas prices as a result of the Russia-Ukraine conflict, causing regional market sentiment to deteriorate.

The fermentation of China's energy crisis, as well as the rising upstream methanol industry, drove the Chinese acetyl oxide market. Rising upstream natural gas prices and soaring demand from downstream dyes industries in other areas, such as Europe and the United States, are constraining acetyl oxide markets.
