Dichloromethane Price Trend for the First Half of 2023


The market activities of dichloromethane were negatively affected by low demand and an eventual rise in the level of inventories in the first quarter of 2023. A significant contributor to this decline in demand was the refrigerant and related industries, which themselves struggled with low sales figures. In addition to this, the second quarter also faced the challenge of low interest from international buyers, which caused the export rates to dip and ultimately led to the downfall of the dichloromethane prices.


The economic conditions of the European countries remained under red light in the first two quarters of 2023, escalated the risk of recession, and increased the pressure of inflation, affecting the momentum of the dichloromethane market in the first two quarters of 2023. This further caused the downstream industries to lower their demand and deteriorated the trend of growth of feedstock materials. These problems eventually led to a slump in the momentum of dichloromethane and caused its price trend to move southwards.

North America

The first quarter of 2023 proved to be beneficial for the growth of dichloromethane prices as with the incline in the cost of feedstocks, the traders were able to enjoy high-profit margins, but this incline was short-lived, and the prices failed to follow the same trajectory in the second quarter. In the second quarter, the exchange rates, plunging demand, slow offtake rates, and high discounts on bulk purchases pushed the price trend of dichloromethane toward a declining path.
