Acrylamide Price Trend for the First Half of 2023


In the first quarter, the surge in the prices of acrylamide was a direct consequence of the increased market activities in the Asia-Pacific region after the long stretch of covid and the lunar holiday season. The rates of production were further boosted by the high number of inquiries from the downstream industries and the gradually moving costs of the upstream sector.

However, in the second quarter, the price trend of acrylamide was supported by the high demand and limited availability of the product in the market, along with the rising cost of feedstock materials and energy production. But after May, the prices of feedstock materials and demand from the downstream industries began to fall. Eventually, the number of new orders was almost negligible, and due to the pressure of soaring inflation, the inquiries from international industries also slumped, pushing the price trend of acrylamide in the downward direction.


In the first quarter, the price trend of acrylamide fluctuated heavily as the cost of crude oil and demand from the downstream industries oscillated throughout the quarter. Due to the limited availability of the product in the region and high demand in the second quarter, the market dynamics of acrylamide improved.

During this phase, the supply-demand equilibria also maintained its balance, which further supported the price trend of acrylamide. However, in the second half of the second quarter, the level of inventories rose while the support from the feedstock industries slumped. Moreover, the plunging economic condition caused the price trend of acrylamide to fall.

North America

Initially, the downstream demand for acrylamide in the first quarter of 2023 slumped, but in the subsequent months, these industries gained market momentum and increased the number of orders. In addition to this, overseas industries also supported the price trend of acrylamide. However, in the last month of the first quarter and throughout the second quarter, the market for acrylamide struggled with low demand due to high rates of inflation and a surge in interest rates. The downstream industries also moved at a slower pace, and the number of inquiries from the international markets also remained muted, which caused the price trend of acrylamide to move southwards.

Analyst Insight

According to Procurement Resource, the price trend of Acrylamide is estimated to follow a declining trend as its market activities seem to be suppressed by the falling demand from the downstream industries.
