Copolymer Price Trend for Second Half of 2023

Copolymers serve as adhesives, coatings, and sealants in construction materials, enhancing durability and performance. In the automotive sector, copolymers are widely employed in tire manufacturing for improved traction and resistance to wear and tear. Additionally, they are integral components in packaging materials, providing barrier properties against moisture, gases, and UV radiation.

The third and fourth quarters of 2023 saw similar trends in the copolymer market across Asia, Europe, and North America. In Asia, market sentiments were guided by demand from sectors like pharmaceuticals, sewage, foods, and fuels, with fluctuations in prices influenced by available inventory stocks and production costs of feedstock materials like vinyl acetate and ethylene.

Europe faced challenges due to the ongoing Russia-Ukraine conflict and freight disturbances, contributing to downward price trends. Similarly, North America experienced low industrial demands during the New Year holiday season and the Israel-Hamas conflict, leading to short-range price fluctuations leaning towards lower prices. Overall, market conditions across these regions reflected downward-wavering price trends amid geopolitical and seasonal factors, impacting the copolymer market.

Analyst Insight

According to Procurement Resource, the price trend of Copolymer is estimated to follow the footsteps of the downstream automotive and packaging industries.

Copolymer Price Trend for the First Half of 2023

Copolymers are polymers made of two or more different monomeric units, in which monomers are the basic structural units forming complex compounds (copolymers). To exemplify, SBR (Styrene – Butadiene Rubber) is a copolymer of Styrene and Butadiene monomeric units. Similarly, ABS (Acrylonitrile – Butadiene Styrene), as the name suggests, is a copolymer of Acrylonitrile, Butadiene, and Styrene.

The copolymer prices depend greatly on the prices of their feedstock, usually the monomeric components present in them, and also the demands from their consumption sector. The prices of copolymers suffered from low demand and fluctuating sentiments of the downstream industries. Further, the upstream industries were burdened with overflowing inventories, lower volumes of purchases, and falling conditions of the economy, adversely affecting the price trend of copolymers.

Analyst Insight

According to Procurement Resource, with the growth in the construction and automotive sectors, the demand projections look positive for Copolymers.

Copolymer refers to a polymer that is composed of two or more monomer species, unlike homopolymers, which contain only one type of monomer unit. Several polymers of commercial importance are copolymers, for example, polyethylene-vinyl acetate (PEVA), nitrile rubber, styrene/butadiene co-polymer (SBR), acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS), and others.

Copolymers are further categorised based on their structures. into linear copolymers and branched copolymers. Copolymer obtained via copolymerisation demonstrates the many benefits of hybrid materials and offers enhanced properties to the product to meet the specific needs, for example, to reduce crystallinity, limit wetting properties or to improve solubility.

Production Processes

  • Production of Copolymers via the Process of Copolymerisation

In order to produce Copolymer, copolymerisation of two or more monomers is carried out at a specific temperature and conditions. Since the physicochemical characteristics of each monomer are unique, their nature of copolymerisation also varies depending on the monomer involved in the process. The obtained products unite the beneficial properties of their monomeric species while often negating their disadvantageous properties.


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).
