Cocamidopropyl Betaine Price Trend for First Half of 2023


Cocamidopropyl betaine is extracted from coconut oil and thus affected its price trend majorly in the first and second quarter of 2023. In the first quarter, the trend showed mixed market movements as the unpredictability in overall market conditions caused the prices of cocamidopropyl betaine to fluctuate.

In addition to this, low demand and rising stockpiles of coconut reduced the prices of feedstocks, hampering the growth of cocamidopropyl betaine price trend. In the second quarter, the trend ultimately declined due to continuously persistent problems of high inventories and low demand combined with negligible rates of exports and a reduction in appetite of domestic and international consumers.


The price trend of cocamidopropyl betaine in European nations suffered with high rates of production and low demand from the downstream industries. The production of feedstock materials mostly was dependent on the climate, that remained favorable to support high production rates throughout the first quarter.

A slight fluctuation in the market was observed in the second month of the first quarter, when feedstock prices caused an incline in the prices of cocamidopropyl betaine. However, in the second quarter, the trend declined gradually due to a smaller number of inquiries and weak trading sentiments observed in this region.

North America

The downstream industries of cocamidopropyl betaine showed reluctance in placing big orders and due to this low demand, the price trend of cocamidopropyl betaine showcased an oscillating trend. However, in the second half of the first quarter, the region witnessed a smaller number of imports due to which the level of inventories declined, giving a positive burst to the prices of cocamidopropyl betaine. But this incline was short lived, and as the second quarter approached, the prices once again began to decline. The decline in the level of imports, steep decline in crude oil cost and higher rates of interest impacted the cocamidopropyl betaine price trend negatively.

Analyst Insight

According to Procurement Resource, the price trend of Cocamidopropyl Betaine is estimated to fall gradually in the upcoming quarter due to weak movement of feedstock industry and feeble condition of global cocamidopropyl betaine market.

Production Process

  • Production of CAPB (Cocamidopropyl Betaine) via Reaction of Dimethylaminopropylamine (DMAPA) with fatty acids

CAPB is produced in two steps, where the first step utilises a reaction between DMAPA and fatty acids, particularly obtained from coconut oil or palm kernel oil. This results in DMAPA’s selective addition, transforming primary amine present in it to amide. Finally, the remaining tertiary amine in DMAPA is reacted with chloroacetic acid to produce a quaternary ammonium centre, thus giving out CAPB.


The displayed pricing data is derived through weighted average purchase price, including contract and spot transactions at the specified locations unless otherwise stated. The information provided comes from the compilation and processing of commercial data officially reported for each nation (i.e. government agencies, external trade bodies, and industry publications).
