It was by the middle of the final quarter that the price dynamics started changing, and the price curve started declining quickly. The supply chains were heavily disturbed during this time as the Red Sea crisis unfolded, rendering the source inventories overwhelmed. This, coupled with overall dull demands from the downstream food and pharma industries, pushed the alpha-cyclodextrin prices downwards. Overall, fluctuating price trends were witnessed for alpha-cyclodextrin during the second half of the year 2023.

Analyst Insight

According to Procurement Resource, Alpha Cyclodextrin prices are likely to continue fluctuating in a similar manner going forward as well. Since the demands are not expected to pick up anytime soon, the market outlook will take time to improve.

Alpha Cyclodextrin Price Trend for the First Half of 2023

Alpha-cyclodextrin is a glucose-like polysaccharide obtained through similar enzymatic degradation of starch molecules usually consumed by the food, beverage, healthcare, cosmetics, and chemical industries.

Alpha Cyclodextrin prices fluctuated throughout the period under discussion. In the Asian Alpha Cyclodextrin market, prices showed positive fluctuations in the initial quarter. Fresh downstream demands, in the beginning, helped in market growth, but a decline in upstream costs because of the normalizing freight and energy costs pushed the commodity prices down.

Similarly, in the European Alpha Cyclodextrin market, the prices were observed to be wavering in a narrow range as the resumed and rerouted supply chains facilitated trade, and energy costs also started normalizing. Overall, mixed market sentiments were observed.

Analyst Insight

According to Procurement Resource, given the fluctuating supply-demand dynamics, the price trend for Alpha Cyclodextrin are expected to continue following a similar oscillating trajectory.

About Alpha-Cyclodextrin

Alpha-Cyclodextrin is a white solid compound which is readily soluble in water. It is a hexasaccharide derived from glucose. In α-cyclodextrin, the six glucose subunits are linked together, forming a tapered cylinder. The inner part of this structure is hydrophobic, whereas the exterior is hydrophilic. α-CD has several applications, including medical, healthcare, and food and beverage. It can be easily derived from natural feedstock like starch.

Alpha-Cyclodextrin Production Processes

  • Production of Alpha-Cyclodextrin via Non-Solvent Process; via Solvent Process; via Enzymatic Degradation

Via Enzymatic Degradation: Alpha-Cyclodextrin is manufactured from starch-rich materials such as corn and potatoes. The starch is extracted and liquified by heat treatment. Then cyclodextrin glycosyltransferase (CGTase) is carefully added to the reaction mixture for enzymatic conversion, thereby giving a product mixture from where the desired product is extracted.


The displayed pricing data is derived through weighted average purchase price, including contract and spot transactions at the specified locations unless otherwise stated.
