Benzal Chloride Price Trend for the First Half of 2023


In the Asia-Pacific market, the swindling cost of feedstock nitrotoluene, depreciating demand from the downstream industries, and persistently rising inventory levels pushed the price trend of benzal chloride towards a bearish trajectory in the first two quarters. In addition to this, the cost of upstream crude oil fall in the charges of freight further hampered the market sentiments of benzal chloride.

The trading activities of the region also witnessed the ill consequences of slowing down of global markets, which also contributed significantly to keeping the prices of benzal chloride in the red zone.


The European dyes, pigments, and pharmaceuticals sector struggled with a steep fall in the number of sales that led to the lower procurement of benzal chloride. The investors and consumers also lowered their interest in this sector, which affected the overall functioning of benzal chloride in the first quarter.

The second quarter, on the other hand, was able to maintain a stagnancy in the prices with support from the downstream solvent sector. However, the declining construction and mining activities in the region prevented the growth of the benzal chloride price trend.

North America

Unlike the trajectory of benzal chloride in Europe and Asia Pacific, the trend of benzal chloride inclined during the first quarter of 2023 in North America. A significant contributor to this northward journey of benzal chloride prices was the rise in the cost of raw materials and downstream demand. The second quarter, however, showed mixed sentiments due to fluctuations in the consumption rates and feeble movement of the crude oil sector.
