Chlorine Dioxide Price Trend for the First Half of 2023

The Chlorine Dioxide market behaved in a fluctuating manner throughout the discussed period. Driven by the market trends of feedstock Sodium Hypochlorite and Chlorine, for most of the said period, the prices were observed to be swinging low as the downstream pharma, chemical, and bleaching industries didn’t pose any substantial demands. And whatever limited queries were gathered could easily be catered by the existing stocks.

High trailing global inflation caused the industries to slow down. Even the high manufacturing markets like the Chinese markets were also found struggling. It was only around the middle of H1 2023, when the quarters shifted, that the prices inclined temporarily, but overall market sentiment remained dull.

Analyst Insight

According to Procurement Resource, considerable improvements in the demand dynamic are required to witness some substantial growth in the market; till then, similar oscillations can be expected in Chlorine Dioxide price trends.

Chlorine Dioxide Price Trend for the Second Half of 2022

The price trends of Chlorine Dioxide are dictated by the price fluctuations of its primary feedstock reactant Sodium Chlorite.

Even though the second half of 2022 started steadily for the Northern American market with unnoticeable fluctuations, the latter quarter brought some challenges. Amid difficult climatic conditions with heavy blizzards and typhoons, supply chains could not sustain, and export disruptions strangled the market a little further.

For Asian countries, the latter half of the year started with a very unclear picture of the chlorine dioxide price trends, as China struggled with power rationing and monsoon posing low demand for the chemical not much shifted for the trend. However, stock clearance practices amid low demand did affect the prices around the year-end.

The second half had a slow start for the European market but as the fourth quarter approached inflation and rising energy prices pushed up the production costs considerably, so the sodium chlorite prices showed an upward rising trend around the year-end thereby, driving up the prices for chlorine dioxide.

Analyst insight

According to Procurement Resource, the price trends for chloride dioxide are going to exhibit a mixed-price tendency in the coming months. As the world economy is still reeling under the pressure of an impending recession, the demand is rising steadily, however, it is bound to occasional fluctuations given the current dynamics.

Chlorine Dioxide Price Trend For the First Half of 2022

Chlorine dioxide is obtained via the oxidation of sodium chlorite with chlorine. Hence, the price trends of chlorine dioxide closely mimic that of its feedstocks. The prices of sodium chlorite surged throughout the Asian market due to the re-emergence of covid-19 cases and rising demand from the homecare market.

The prices relaxed towards the end of June due to the baulking of the buyers amid the growing stagnation and demand destruction. However, chlorine dioxide prices continued to soar throughout the European and American domestic markets. The closure of Chlor-alkali plants in the US created supply shortages, along with the inflated upstream costs and robust demand, which strengthened the price trends of chlorine dioxide.
