Butyl Acetate Price Trend for the H1 of 2023


The Asian Butyl Acetate market observed mixed price sentiments during the first half of 2023. The market had a positive start in the first half of Q1 2023 as market offtakes from the downstream coatings and adhesive industries rose. At the same time, the supplies were still curtailed as the production facilities were trying to revive after the Covid restrictions were lifted.

But as the production ramped up, inventories started leveling up, while the demands started normalizing and eventually declined. The price trends took a downturn by the end of the first quarter and continued till the middle of the second quarter. Prices tried to rebound at the end of Q2, but low demands dominated over other factors. Overall, the market remained fluctuating during the said period.


Like the Asian Butyl Acetate market, downstream demands remained the driving factor for price trends in the first two quarters of 2023. Q1 started positively, with high demands and substantial procurements from the downstream industries.

But as the upstream facilities improved, the supply chains were restored, and the freight costs decreased, excess supplies started piling, given the falling demand by the end of Q1 2023. These declining trends continued till the end of the second quarter. Overall muted market sentiments were observed.

North America

The North American Butyl Acetate market exhibited conflicting patterns with the global market trends as the prices were on an inclining trajectory for most of the first half of 2023. Demands were consistent and stable and showed occasional rises, and feedstock prices, too, provided positive cost support. Some temporary deviations owing to regional imbalances were observed. However, overall inclined price patterns were observed for the region.
