Bio-Butadiene Price Trend for the Second Half of 2023

Bio- Butadiene price trends exhibited borderline stagnancy as they followed the feedstock sugar and corn market sentiments closely. Bio- Butadiene is important to revolutionize the plastic and polymer industry by making them a little more environmentally viable. Hence, the demands are gradually rising as the sector grows. However, during the said period of H2’23 the demands were found to be marginally muted as the industrial activities suffered because of various geopolitical reasons.

The feedstock availability was largely sufficient, while some of the downstream demands were filled via the recycled butadiene products. This hampered the overall market demand for bio-butadiene, and hence, the price curve dipped during the end quarter of 2023.

Analyst Insight

According to Procurement Resource, the projections for the bio-butadiene market do not differ much for the coming months. The market is likely to maintain the current momentum going forward.

Bio-Butadiene Price Trend for the First Half of 2023

The price trend for Bio-Butadiene follow that of its feedstock raw sugar. Sugarcane prices remained inclined as uncertain weather conditions and unseasonal rainfalls in India hindered cultivation. The North-West part of the country received plenteous rainfall while the southeastern parts remained drought ridden. About 34% of the country’s region received deficient rainfall while the 32% got in excess; this uneven precipitation disturbed the soil and crop cycle, affecting the upstream production costs.

The government of India even increased the support FRP price for sugarcane farmers to increase the plantation land area. As the sugar prices rose, the prices of Bio-Butadiene were equally impacted. The enhanced upstream cost pressure and diversion of the already constricted supplies for other purposes further pressured the Bio-Butadiene prices. Overall, the market remained adrift amidst uncertainties during the first half of 2023.

Analyst Insight

According to the Procurement Resource, Bio-Butadiene is expected to continue a similar inclined trend given the current market fundamentals. The highly uneven rainfall patterns will continue to affect the sown crops, affecting all the allied markets.

Bio-Butadiene Price Trend for the Second Half of 2022

Butadiene is an important component in the production of synthetic rubbers mainly SBR (Styrene Butadiene Rubber), and other polymers. So, it has become crucial to synthesize it naturally with a bio-based precursor for managing the carbon footprints of the process.

Bio-Butadiene is mainly sourced from raw sugar which is directly sourced from sugarcane. So, the price trend for Bio-Butadiene vary according to that of its feedstock. In Q3 and Q4 prices of sugarcane mostly remained mixed and swung very little on the higher side for the American region, attributed to the agricultural production in that time. For the Asian region, India enjoyed robust productivity of sugarcane, so prices here too remained almost stagnant.

Analyst Insight

According to the Procurement Resource, bio-butadiene prices are expected to remain stable in the upcoming months owing to its feedstock sugarcane prices remaining almost consistent as the projections remain good in terms of production. The trade and freight normalisation will further ease the pressure.

Bio-Butadiene Price Trend For the First Half of 2022

Bio-Butadiene is obtained from raw sugars or glucose syrup. The economic backlash unleashed owing to the continuing Russia-Ukraine geopolitical confrontation exposed the market's vulnerability to crude oil and natural gas prices, with repercussions felt across all sectors. The recovering global economy shifted its focus to bio-based chemicals, driving their demands towards a higher end. Similarly, the prices of bio-based butadiene increased owing to its carbon-neutral footprint and strong demand from the green tires industry.

The price of feedstock raw sugars remained strong throughout the year's first half, owing to the robust demand from ethanol and biofuel industries. The supply shortages due to trade bottlenecks and adverse weather phenomena further increased the price trend for bio-butadiene. The prices of feedstock glucose syrup averaged 948.20 USD/MT during the said period.

A synthetic, colourless gas known as bio-butadiene is essentially insoluble in water but is soluble in ethanol, ether, acetone, and benzene. It is primarily employed as a monomer in the creation of numerous varieties of polymers and copolymers as well as as a chemical intermediary in the manufacture of industrial chemicals. However, bio-butadiene is made from renewable sources, replacing the fossil-based raw materials.
