Asia

A complex dynamic of demand, supply, and cost of energy production guided the pricing trajectory of calcium acetate in the first quarter of 2024. Initially, the procurement rates of the commodity remained subdued due to the weak momentum carried forward from the previous quarters. However, as the quarter progressed, the interest of downstream industries and direct consumers, particularly from the food sector, started to rise, favoring the stabilization of the calcium acetate price trend.

On the other hand, the feedstock chemicals also witnessed an abrupt rise in their market prices due to operational challenges being faced by the manufacturing side. Further, the traders also bore the ill consequences of an increasing number of Houthi attacks on Asian shipments to European countries, curtailing a loss in export volumes and their profit margin.

Europe

Rebounding from the recessionary pressures of 2023, European market dynamics improved in the first quarter of 2024, indicating a positive trend in the price trajectory of calcium acetate. The region's demand for calcium acetate was driven by the pharmaceutical and food industries which performed well and supported the uptrend in calcium acetate price trend.

Further, the construction industry also benefitted from the increase in infrastructure investments, which led to an additional rise in the demand sector for calcium acetate. In support of that, the stabilization in the cost of energy production, particularly driven by the rise in crude oil prices helped the manufacturers to increase their production activities in accordance with the interest of downstream industries.

North America

After registering a slow start in 2024, the price trend of calcium acetate inclined in North America as the market momentum was supported by several market drivers. The calcium acetate prices took on their upward trajectory, benefiting from the rise in the procurement rates from downstream industries such as food and pharmaceuticals. Additionally, increased production efficiency and rising raw material costs prompted manufacturers and suppliers in the US to drive their prices of calcium acetate up.

Despite limited operating rates in the previous months, the revamped production rates in this quarter strike an equilibrium between supply and demand. Further, the positive economic growth of the region also positively impacted calcium acetate prices in the first quarter of 2024. However, ongoing geopolitical tensions, particularly in the Middle East, disrupted global shipping routes, elevating freight charges and impacting supply chains.

Analyst Insight

According to Procurement Resource, the price trend of Calcium Acetate is estimated to function on the lines of the trajectory set by its downstream industries, which in the present scenario do not offer much of an optimistic trend, and the pricing trend of the feedstock chemicals.
 

Calcium Acetate Price Trend for the October - December of 2023

Asia

The Asian countries fell short in terms of demand for calcium acetate, which led to the southward movement of its prices. The increased availability of the product in the market and rise in production activities after a period of stagnancy only raises the level of inventories amid the weak demand for the product. Further, the reduction in the cost of production due to the low cost of raw materials concerned the traders throughout the fourth quarter of 2023.

Europe

The fall in the cost of feedstock material, calcium carbonate, in the fourth quarter of 2023 had a significant implication on the price trend of calcium acetate. Due to feeble market conditions led by rising inflation and interest rates, the producers found it difficult to sustain in the market. Along with this, the food and pharmaceutical industries also registered a slowdown during the fourth quarter of 2023, which additionally worked against the calcium carbonate price trend.

North America

In the fourth quarter, the US Calcium Acetate market saw a negative trend in prices due to ample inventory levels, leading to a decline. However, the production costs remained stable amid dipping natural gas prices. This trend in the calcium acetate market was associated with the high number of inventories and reduced downstream inquiries, which forced the sellers to reduce rates.

Analyst Insight

According to Procurement Resource, the price trend of Calcium Acetate are estimated to be based on the market dynamics followed by the downstream food and pharmaceutical industries.
 

Calcium Acetate Price Trend for the July - September of 2023

Asia

The price of calcium acetate in the Asia-Pacific region witnessed a steep decline during the first half of the third quarter. During this initial phase, the low rates of procurement from the end-user industries and the limited interest of the overseas players were reflected in the downfall of the calcium acetate prices.

Further, with the low number of orders and excess of supply, the gap between the supply-demand sectors widened, impairing the equilibria. However, during the end phase, the cost of raw materials took a northward turn, and the growth of the manufacturing industries resulted in favor and a rise in the calcium acetate price trend.

Europe

The downfall of calcium acetate prices was driven by the plunging demand dynamics of the downstream industries. In view of this struggling condition of the market, the traders were forced to reduce their price quotations. In addition to this, the excessive supply and pessimistic approach of the upstream sectors also degraded the market sentiments of calcium acetate. In the end phase, the situation started to improve with the help of a rise in the number of inquiries, which helped in stabilizing the calcium acetate regional prices.

North America

The producers faced a fall in the number of new inquiries and poor sentiments of the downstream industries that led to the indigent pathway of calcium acetate prices. The excess of stockpiles and rising rates of inflation further worsened the market conditions and, in turn, raised the cost of production. However, the month of September led to a positive movement in the calcium acetate sector on account of a remarkable incline in the domestic and overseas demand for calcium acetate and the increasing cost of energy.

Analyst Insight

According to Procurement Resource, the price trend of Calcium Acetate are expected to be dictated by the movement of the demand from the downstream sectors and the performance of the feedstock materials.
 

Calcium Acetate Price Trend for the First Half of 2023

Asia

In the first quarter of 2023, the market for calcium acetate showcased a mixed trajectory due to fluctuating market sentiments. After the lunar holidays, the production and demand of calcium acetate improved, which resulted in the positive growth of the calcium acetate price trend. However, after an initial incline, the prices dropped gradually due to sliding upstream costs and a rise in the level of inventories.

This declining trend continued in the second quarter also as the high level of inventories continued to be a problem for the growth of the calcium acetate price trend. Thus, to reduce the pressure on over availability of the product, the traders were forced to sell their product at compromised rates that resulted in the fall of calcium acetate prices.

Europe

The initial phase of the first quarter witnessed a surge in the prices of calcium acetate as the high demand from the end-user industries supported the rising trajectory of calcium acetate prices. However, as seen in the Asia Pacific region, the price trend of calcium acetate in the latter half of the first quarter and throughout the second quarter declined. The major factors influencing this declining price trend were the significant drop in demand, stockpiling of products, and a gradual decline observed in the market sentiments of the upstream acetic acid sector.

North America

In North America, the first quarter proved to be in favor of the rising prices of calcium acetate with support from high domestic demand and restricted availability of calcium acetate in the market. However, in the second quarter, the market activities took a negative turn.

The rates of production exceeded the overall demand, which caused the level of inventories to rise. Also, the low number of new orders from the end-user industries hampered the growth of the calcium acetate market and dictated the price trend of calcium acetate to follow a southward journey.

Analyst Insight

According to Procurement Resource, the price trend of Calcium Acetate is estimated to showcase a falling trajectory as the high level of inventories and slow demand from the end-user industries is expected to affect the calcium acetate market negatively.
