Calcium Propionate Price Trend for the First Half of 2023


In the Asia Pacific market, the price trend of calcium propionate in the first quarter was challenged by the weak demand and rising level of stockpiles. In addition to this, the upstream cost of Ethylene also failed to provide the required support. As a result of these factors, the price trend of calcium propionate faced southwards in the second quarter. The second quarter was also negatively affected by fluctuating market sentiments and collapsing cost of feedstock materials that kept the price trend of calcium propionate in the negative zone.


The first quarter witnessed a falling trajectory in the prices of calcium propionate as the demand for the product remained weak. The high levels of inventories and a significant drop in the cost of feedstock materials had an adverse effect on the market activities, especially the production rates of calcium propionate.

In the second quarter, the sea routes from China to Europe became more efficient, which led to a drop in the cost of trading, which also influenced the price trend of calcium propionate negatively. In addition to this, the subdued demand forced the manufacturers to reduce their price quotations, which eventually pushed the prices of calcium propionate into the negative zone.

North America

The price trend of calcium propionate in the North American region mirrored the trend seen in the Asia Pacific and European regions. In this region, too, feeble demand and the high level of inventories proved to be a problem for the market of calcium propionate in the first quarter.

The market activities of the downstream industries in the second quarter faced the challenges of soaring rates of inflation, oscillating economic conditions, and oversupply of calcium propionate in the region. In addition to this, the ongoing Russia-Ukraine crises also resulted in high fluctuations in the US market that ultimately resulted in the fall in the price trend of calcium propionate.
