In Asia, the price of chlorinated paraffin experienced a slight decrease during the H2 of 2023, particularly in Chinese markets, due to reduced costs of raw materials like liquid wax. Throughout the quarter, there was no significant improvement in downstream demand, pushing the producers and distributors to adjust prices based on actual costs.

Despite volatile raw material prices and limited market trading, chlorinated paraffin prices stabilized only at the lower side of the spectrum. Similarly, in Europe, fluctuations in the chlorinated paraffin market were influenced by trends in crude oil and naphtha industries, as chlorinated paraffin is primarily derived from these sources. The blockage of Russian pipelines and loss of exports due to geopolitical tensions led to considerable market fluctuations. Additionally, the consumer sector provided limited support amid rising inflation rates.

In North America, the crude oil sector experienced a significant decline majorly in the last quarter of 2023, making it challenging for chlorinated paraffin price trends to recover. Increased import volumes, particularly from Asian countries, coupled with weak consumer demand, resulted in higher inventory levels of chlorinated paraffin. To balance supply and demand, traders resorted to destocking activities by offering discounts on accumulated inventories, leading to a downward trend in chlorinated paraffin prices.

Analyst Insight

According to Procurement Resource, the price trend of Chlorinated Paraffin is expected to be based on the limited number of inquiries from the consumer sector and a decline in the number of investments received by the production industries.

Chlorinated Paraffin Price Trend for the First Half of 2023

These instances pushed down the prices, and they followed a plunging trajectory throughout the second quarter. Overall, fluctuating market sentiments were observed.
