Chloromethane Price Trend for the First Half of 2022

The domestic chloromethane market was high for a long time, and domestic prices in 2022 were significantly higher than in the previous decade. However, following a significant increase in domestic supply in May, the market began to show a clear downward trend and entered a continuous low channel.

In May, the average price of Chloromethane (methyl chloride) in Shandong, China, was 4,307 RMB/MT, a decrease of 346RMB/MT, or 7.44%, from the previous month. The price trends for Chloromethane continued the downward trend and averaged 3750 RMB/MT towards the end of said period.

Average chloromethane prices in the final quarter of 2021 was 1140 USD/MT. A considerable share of the chloromethane produced is used to make chemical intermediates such as methyl chlorosilanes. Silicone fluids are manufactured using these methyl chlorosilanes.

Silicone fluids derived from chloromethane are utilised in a variety of products, including antifoaming agents, releasing agents, and light-duty lubricants, as well as speciality chemicals for consumer goods (cosmetics, furniture polishes, auto polishes, and paper coatings). The market for chloromethane has been rising in nations like China, India, Japan, and South Korea, owing to rising demand from various end-user industries.
