Biotin Price Trend for the October - December of 2023

The biotin market experienced some downsizing during the last quarter of the year 2023. The biggest downfall of the demands came from healthcare and the skincare sectors. Biotin, which is also popularly known as Vitamin B7, is produced using cyclic amines and potassium borohydride, and both feedstocks were readily available during the concerned period.

The industrial slump in the USA earlier this year because of weak economic circumstances in the region kept the unused stocks stacked up in inventories, and that further created cost pressure for suppliers. So, in order to vacate inventories and make space for fresh stocks the suppliers chipped down the biotin prices. Overall, dull and falling price trend were observed for biotin throughout the entire three-month span of Q4 of 2023.

Analyst Insight

According to Procurement Resource, Biotin price trend are not likely to recover anytime soon as the demands are facing downward and the inventories are running high; prices are likely to waver along the lower side of the price curve.

Biotin Price Trend for July-September of 2023

Biotin belongs to the family of water-soluble B vitamins with excessive employability in the pharmaceutical and cosmetic industries. It is naturally obtained from food sources such as eggs, nuts, and vegetables and synthetically from the bacteria culture.

Biotin’s price trend, thus, are dictated by its industrial uses and methods of production. The cost of natural raw materials used in its production in India surged due to a variety of factors. The most significant contributor to this rise in prices was uneven rainfall and ill consequences of climate change observed in the agricultural sectors. To curb these rising rates of inflation in the food sector, the government took strict measures, such as an export ban, which helped stabilize the trajectory of the biotin price graph in the third quarter of 2023.

Analyst Insight

According to Procurement Resource, the price of Biotin is expected to trace an oscillating trajectory in view of the government’s efforts to control inflation in the food sector.

Biotin Price Trend for the First Half of 2023


The price trend of biotin fluctuated throughout the first and second quarters of 2023, as there was a considerable decline in the demand from the downstream industries. In the first quarter, China strengthened its export rates and eased its trade policies that, boosted the international offtakes.

In the second quarter, however, the production activities declined along with the weak demand from the downstream industries and the low number of offtakes from the domestic and international traders. In addition to this, trade was also affected by the slow recovery of the Chinese economy after the pandemic and the ongoing struggling global markets due to the Russia-Ukraine crisis.


In European countries, the price trend of biotin showcased a mixed signal but majorly remained on the positive end as the imports from Asian countries became expensive due to the strengthening of Asian currency. In addition to this, the surge in demand from the end-user industries caused the level of inventories to decline and thus supported the rising trend of biotin prices. However, the trajectory of the biotin price trend slumped in the last phase of the second quarter.

The main causes of this decline were the reduction in the appetite of buyers, the rise in stockpiles of inventories, and the weak performance of the economy. In addition to this, inflation in food and energy prices also hampered the growth of the biotin price trend.

North America

The first quarter of 2023 proved to be unfavorable for the biotin market as its price trend declined consistently. The biotin market was adversely affected by the restricted trade, high inflation, and uncertainties in the energy production market caused by the Russia-Ukraine crisis.

In April, there was a slight rise in the prices as end-user industries presented large orders and slow supply chains failed to cater to this high demand. However, in the subsequent months, the decline in the prices of biotin was a direct consequence of the poor purchasing potential of buyers and high-interest rates.

Analyst Insight

According to Procurement Resource, the price trend of Biotin is expected to decline in the upcoming quarters. The market activities of biotin will be dependent on the demand from downstream industries and the efficiency of supply chains.

Production Processes

The reaction of cyclic acid with dextroamine produces cyclic amine that on further reaction with potassium borohydride and hydrochloric acid gives a product which is combined with potassium thioacetate to give thioketone. In the next step, thioketone is reacted with formate reagent, and then is subjected to hydrogenation. Finally, via debenzylation, crude biotin is produced and by the help of charcoal, pure biotin is finally produced.
