Benzoyl Chloride Price Trend for the First Half of 2023


The price trend of benzoyl chloride dipped in the first and second quarter of 2023 as the procurement from the pharmaceutical, fertilizers, and related industries remained low. In addition to this, the economic indicators suggest that there was a significant decline in manufacturing activities during this time phase. Even after the low production rates, the level of inventories remained sufficient to cater to the subdued demand of the downstream industries indicating the fall in the price trend of benzoyl chloride in the Asia-Pacific region.


In the first quarter, the price trend of benzoyl chloride surged with support from the rising cost of feedstock materials and high demand from the end-user industries. However, the second quarter failed to continue this upward trajectory due to a significant decline in the number of inquiries from agriculture, perfumes, resin, and other downstream industries. In addition to this, the feedstock cost also slumped with striking high inflation and interest rates that eventually hampered benzoyl chloride prices and caused its price trend to take a steep fall.

North America

Similar to the European market, the prices of benzoyl chloride in the first quarter surged, supported by high demand and an increased number of orders from the downstream industries. However, the demand for benzoyl chloride was subdued in the second quarter due to weak market dynamics of agriculture, perfumes, pharmaceuticals, and related sectors. In addition to this, the cost of production further plummeted due to feeble economic conditions of the North American market that negatively impacted the price trend of benzoyl chloride.
