European shores too enjoyed good productivity of coconuts so price trend for feedstock remained low swinging.

Bio-Adipic Acid Price Trend for the Second Quarter of 2022

Biobased chemicals such as bio-adipic acid serve as suitable alternatives to conventional chemicals as it helps to reduce the dependence on fossil fuels, thereby reducing the carbon footprint. With the surging crude oil and natural gas prices, many companies are now investing the biobased chemicals. Bio-adipic acid is obtained from raw sugars, glucose and fatty acids derived from coconut oil.

The price of feedstock coconut oil remained strong throughout the Asian market owing to the supply crunch in the global market. With the absence of the Black Sea sunflower oil and palm oil export ban by Indonesia, oil prices exploded globally.

The prices of feedstock coconut oil averaged 2985 USD/MT FOB Subic (Philippines). Similar price trend were seen in the European and US domestic markets due to the trade bottlenecks and lack of valuable imports from Malaysia and the Philippines due to adverse climate conditions.

The prices of raw sugars soared throughout the Asian market owing to the robust demand from the ethanol and biofuel industries. In the USA, the prices of raw sugars peaked at 808.38 USD/MT in April and further stabilized around 797.18 USD/MT in June 2022.

Whereas in Brazil, the prices of raw sugars declined from 556.20 USD/MT ( February) to 492 USD/MT in June due to the lousy harvest owing to the adverse climate conditions caused by the La Nina weather phenomenon.

The high prices of biomass feedstock kept the price trend of bio-adipic acid strong throughout the first half of the said year.
