Further, the cost of crude oil and demand from the downstream sectors declined, which adversely affected the price of allyl alcohol in H1’23.
The allyl alcohol market witnessed a mixed trends in the first and second quarters of 2023. In the initial months, the prices surged as they gained support from the rising energy costs.

Allyl Alcohol Price Trends for the Second Half of 2022
Allyl Alcohol is produced by reacting allyl chloride with petrochemical propylene. So, the price trendss of Allyl Alcohol are directly related to that of propylene and allyl chloride. In H2 2022 feedstock crude oil was sufficiently available, especially, with discounted Russian oil having access to both Indian and Chinese markets. But the market demands remained so low that feedstock ease too could not keep the Allyl Alcohol market riding high. With the Chinese government imposing power rationing norms the upstream production was hindered. However, throughout time a very low-inclined market trends was observed.
A major war in the European backyard left the domestic economy struggling. The high inflation and supply chain disruptions worsened the situation further, dampening the market demands for Allyl Alcohol to an all-time low killing the market trendss.

North America observed a very mixed trends for Allyl Alcohol in H2 2022. Crude oil supply was not much of a problem for America, but the striking inflation and low economic activities affected the American market trendss for Allyl Alcohol.

Thus, a very mixed, fluctuating price trends of Allyl Alcohol was observed in the said period.
According to Procurement Resource, the market trendss for Allyl Alcohol are going to be mixed/ oscillating with market demand driving the price trendss. As upstream costs are almost stagnant, demand will remain the determining factor.
For the Second Quarter of 2022
The price of allyl alcohol soared during the first quarter owing to the booming demand from the personal care and detergent industries. The supply constraints and trade bottlenecks also influenced these heightened prices. With the Indonesian government banning the exports of feedstock palm oil huge void was created in the market, and Malaysian exports could not keep up with the same.

In line with the European market, the allyl alcohol prices soared during the first quarter and stabilized towards the end of the second quarter. With the shortages of feedstock palm oil and the trade bottlenecks in the Black Sea, the prices worsened in the domestic market. The cost of feedstock palm oil averaged 2534.15 USD/MT during the first half of 2022.
The US domestic market registered a fluctuating trends during the year's first half. The prices initially soared due to high power costs and feedstock shortages but soon recovered owing to the robust market sentiment. However, the healthy downstream demands soon fizzled out because of the abnormal inflation level and speculation of a global recession.
The price of feedstock palm oil averaged 3411.83 USD/MT in January 2022, then dropped to 2004.25 USD/MT towards the end of the first quarter. The prices averaged around 4106.36 USD/MT in the US domestic market in the second quarter.
