Get the latest insights on price movement and trend analysis of Cyclohexane in different regions across the world (Asia, Europe, North America, Latin America, and the Middle East & Africa).

In Q4 2021, cyclohexane prices in Belgium were recorded at 1155 USD/MT in October and 888 USD/MT in December. Due to a significant increase in the value of the raw material benzene, the prices of cyclohexane and cyclopentane increased in the fourth quarter of 2021 in the North American region.

In the United States, the market prognosis for cyclohexane and cyclopentane had improved, owing to increased demand from the adipic acid and caprolactam production industries. Furthermore, the spike in power, combined with fewer imports from China, wreaked havoc on the prices of cyclohexane and cyclopentane during this time period. Furthermore, the product's total pricing trend in the quarter was influenced by high freight charges.

Because of a drop in demand from resins and rubber adhesives makers in Asia, cyclopentane prices fell. As a result, December Ex-Mumbai cyclohexane prices were approximately USD 1307.05/MT, up USD 107.36/MT, while cyclopentane 95 percent Ex Mumbai prices were around USD 3147.59/MT, down significantly. In Europe, cyclohexane price per ton was USD 1557 (EXW Germany) in December, an increase of 8% since October.
