ATMP (Amino Trimethylene Phosphonic Acid) Price Trend for the H1 of 2023


The Asian ATMP (Amino Trimethylene Phosphonic Acid) market witnessed very mixed price patterns in the first half of 2023. Prices depended on the feedstock phosphorous acid and ammonium chloride prices and the demands from downstream construction, coating, and dyeing sectors. ATMP prices were stable for most of the first quarter, but a falling pattern was visible in the second quarter as the market became saturated and demands dipped. Overall, an oscillating price trend for ATMP (Amino Trimethylene Phosphonic Acid) was observed in the Asian market.


The European ATMP (Amino Trimethylene Phosphonic Acid) market showed low swinging patterns in the said period. The struggling European economies had a hard time with downstream construction and other sectors, which, coupled with falling feedstock prices, contributed to the declining price trends. Further, the improved freight conditions and restored supply chains amidst low demands aided the downward trajectory for ATMP prices.

North America

The North American ATMP (Amino Trimethylene Phosphonic Acid) prices mimicked the trends seen in the European market and remained fluctuating throughout the period of discussion. After the restoration of trade routes and industrial revival in China, cheaper Asian imports were accessible. Further, the falling prices of phosphorous contributed to a lower wavering price pattern.

Analyst Insight

According to the Procurement Resource, the ATMP (Amino Trimethylene Phosphonic Acid) prices are expected to fluctuate as the supply-demand dynamics do not appear to be changing soon, and upstream prices also do not seem to be providing much cost support.

Amino Trimethylene Phosphonic Acid (ATMP) Price Trend for the H2 of 2022


The price trends for ATMP registered a mixed trajectory during H2 2022. The third quarter started with the same momentum as Q2 with stable demands and high feedstock prices. The high prices of phosphoric acid and phosphate rock coupled with temporary industrial shutdowns, and power rationing norms caused the ATMP prices to inflate in the Chinese domestic market. However, towards the end of Q4, the market dynamics stabilized as trade and freight normalisation took place thereby plateauing the ATMP price trends.


The European market followed the same pricing patterns as its Asian counterpart. The third quarter witnessed a rise in prices whereas the fourth quarter observed a price normalization. During the third quarter supply chains stabilized and cheap Chinese imports also started entering the market causing the buyers to anticipate healthy price trends for ATMP. Contrary to this popular belief the prices saw a stagnant phase considering the economic backlash, contracting purchasing power and poor demand which did not let the market recover.

North America

ATMP price trends for the US domestic market fluctuated throughout the concerned period. After a strong run in H1, owing to high feedstock prices and freight charges, H2 witnessed a resumption in supply chains and feedstock availability.  But the market demands didn’t rise much, swinging the price trends for ATMP towards the lower end of the scale.

Analyst insight

According to Procurement Resource, ATMP prices are likely to remain volatile in the coming months considering the current market dynamics. Amid the economic crisis, the downstream demand will remain the main determining factor for price fluctuations.

Amino Trimethylene Phosphonic Acid Price Trend For the H1 of 2022


The Russian invasion of Ukraine, which started in the last week of February, produced disastrous effects on the world’s economic flows. The economic backlash unleashed reiterated itself across all the spheres of life. The western sanctions against Russia created a massive void in the global supply of fertilizers and minerals, thereby escalating the prices of phosphate rock and phosphoric acid.

The price of feedstock phosphoric acid averaged 11500 RMB/MT in March 2022. However, the prices of ATMP relaxed a bit in the second quarter as the costs of raw materials settled along with the muted market sentiment. The prices of feedstock phosphoric acid averaged 10633.33 RMB/MT in June 2022. The prices of feedstock formaldehyde averaged 1260-1320 RMB/MT in Shandong, China. Hence, the price trends of ATMP remained anchored throughout the first half of the said year.


In line with its Asian counterpart, the prices of ATMP stood firm in the European market. The prices of feedstock phosphoric acid have increased around 3-4 times than the 2021 levels. The prices of formaldehyde and ammonia remained strong despite the trade bottlenecks.

North America

The feedstock prices remained strong owing to the raised production costs, freight charges and the robust demand from the downstream sectors. Hence, the price of ATMP remained stable in the US domestic market.

ATMP or Amino Trimethylene Phosphonic Acid is basically known as a phosphonic acid. It is synthesised with the Mannich-type reaction of ammonia, formaldehyde, and phosphorous acid, in a manner quite alike to the Kabachnik–Fields reaction. It has excellent chelation, low threshold inhibition and lattice distortion ability. In water system, it can prevent scale formation, particularly for calcium carbonate and is thus, widely used in in recirculated cooling water systems for power station, oil field, central air-conditioning, etc.
