Camphene Price Trend for the Second Half of 2023

Camphene is a monoterpene derived from natural sources like various natural essential oils and citral, so the price trends for it closely align with them. Camphene, thus, is majorly used to make synthetic camphor and in the fragrance and aroma industries. Its price trend heavily depends on the prices of these feedstock materials along with the consumption from the downstream sectors.

The market started off in a dwindling manner at the beginning of the third quarter; a low feedstock cost support and high supply volumes were responsible for this downturn as the demands maintained above-average levels. However, going forward, the prices started experiencing a dip as the disparity between the supply and demand outlooks widened even more. Consumption was wavering between normal to higher levels for the most period as the skincare industry bloomed and the feedstock prices surged. Albeit competition between a growing number of manufacturers kept the prices in check.

Analyst Insight

According to Procurement Resource, the Camphene price trends are expected to elevate going forward since the current market outlook will force suppliers to control production.

Camphene Price Trend for the First Half of 2023


Camphene is a monoterpene and belongs to the same category as alpha and beta pinenes. In the first quarter, the prices of these monoterpenes suffered from the high fluctuations in the supply and demand sectors and underperformance of the market, especially in China.

The uncertain rates of production and declining consumption amid rising stockpiles of the product in the market further proved to be a challenge for the camphene price trend. However, the trend reversed in the initial months of the second quarter as the sales of fragrance and flavors industries improved.

The insufficient availability of stocks and improving market dynamics of the downstream industries further proved to be in favor of the rise in the prices of camphene. However, the second half of this quarter witnessed a significant decline due to rising inflation and the limited number of inquiries.


The price trend of camphene followed a bearish note as the market of monoterpenes stumbled throughout the first and second quarters of 2023. In the first quarter, the weak demand and high supply of the products proved to be a challenge for camphene prices.

In the second quarter, the demand from the fragrance and flavors sector remained subdued. In addition to this, the plunging condition of the European economy, struggling market sentiments, and excess inventories led to the decline in the price trend of camphene.

North America

The demand for monoterpenes declined consistently in the first quarter, especially from the pharmaceutical industries, which eventually led to a rise in the level of inventories. The rise in the cost of labor and transportation cost further posed a challenge for the rise in prices of camphene.

In the second quarter, the prices of camphene inclined as with the rise in interest of consumers in the sector and their spending appetite the price trend surged. The later months of this quarter, however, did not favor this incline. The major causes of this downward trend were rising levels of inventories, poor demand from the downstream industries, and overall plunging market sentiments.

Analyst Insight

According to Procurement Resource, the price trend of Camphene is estimated to decline in the upcoming quarters as the demand from the downstream industries is expected to stay in the negative zone.
