Betaine Price Trend for the Second Half of 2023

Betaine prices readily mimicked the fluctuations experienced in the feedstocks market, namely sugar and bioethanol. The Asian market started on a stable note at the beginning of the third quarter as the prices fluctuated within a narrow range during the third quarter of the year 2023. However, a supply glut was witnessed in the market at the beginning of the fourth quarter, which pushed the price curve down.

The easy and affordable availability of the feedstock during this time also influenced this market trend. It was around the year-end months that the betaine market started to incline marginally. Overall, a very fluctuating market performance was witnessed for betaine in H2’23.

Analyst Insight

According to Procurement Resource, the Betaine prices are likely to vacillate within confined limits going forward as well. The supply and demand outlooks do not look very promising for the coming times as well.

Betaine Price Trend for the First Half of 2023

Betaine prices closely mimicked that of feedstocks sugar beet and bioethanol. The betaine market remained inclined for most of the H1 2023 as the feedstock bioethanol prices rose for most of the period, along with the market demands from the downstream industries.

Betaine market growth is majorly pertaining to the growing awareness of clean beauty and cosmetic products and the nutritional benefits of Betaine, especially in Northern America and Europe. The majority of demand came from the cosmetics and pharmaceutical industries. Eased trade exchanges, given the normalizing freight charges and the full-fledged revival of the Chinese market post-Covid lockdown, also added to the market growth.

Analyst Insight

According to the Procurement Resource, the Betaine market is expected to grow further in the coming months. The growth in the Bioethanol production sector because of rising dependencies on green fuel supplements will further supplement the betaine price trend.

Betaine Price Trend for the Second Half of 2022
The price trend for betaine stood firm in the global market owing to the robust demand from the pharmaceutical sector. Betaine is obtained from the sugarbeets via the liquid chromatographic separation method. Hence, the price of sugarbeets directly impacts the prices of betaine in the market. The price of sugarbeets averaged 11 RMB/kg in the Chinese domestic market.

Betaine or trimethylglycine is a naturally occurring substance in the human body involved in several functions, most notably homocysteine metabolism. A higher homocysteine (amino acid) level in the bloodstream indicates vitamin deficiency.

Natural betaine is manufactured from high-energy feeds such as sugar beet molasses. Due to its high protein content, it is an essential component of animal feed to negate heat effects and maintain the water balance. DuPont de Nemours Inc., in association with Tereos (a key player in the primary processing of sugar beet molasses), has set up a sugar distillery in France, which is the largest source of natural betaine.

According to FAO, this year witnessed 8% and 20% inflation in food and feed prices, respectively. In the global market, sugar beet molasses prices suddenly increased during February due to the Russia-Ukraine confrontation.

Betaine's price increase was attributed to supply chain disruptions and heightened freight charges. The price jumped from 265-280 EUR/MT in May to approximately 300-325 EUR/MT in June 2022. Betaine price trend skewed towards the higher end as a result of the elevated costs of inputs.
