Dinitro Toluene Price Trend for Second Half of 2023

In the third and fourth quarters of 2023, the dinitrotoluene price trend remained stable in the Asian market, notably in China, moving opposite to the general trend observed around the globe. This stability reflects Asia's strong and distinct market dynamics and demand patterns, particularly in key sectors like dyes and pharmaceuticals.

However, in Europe, the prices of dinitrotoluene experienced a decline due to volatility in toluene and nitric acid prices. These oscillations in the market were further fueled by the oscillations in the supply rates of crude oil after sanctions were imposed on Russian supply lines. European manufacturers, therefore, adjusted prices in response to global supply chain dynamics and petrochemical market shifts. North America, on the other hand, mirrored Asia's stability in dinitro toluene prices despite a downtrend in its feedstock prices.

This relatively positive outlook of the market is attributed to the stabilization in inflationary pressure and interest rates charged by the banking sector. Along with this, sustained demand in the automotive and construction sectors also played a significant role in keeping the market dynamics above the red line. But North America wasn't entirely immune to global influences, with potential adjustments looming due to broader economic factors and feedstock price fluctuations. Stakeholders across regions exercised caution amidst the complex and evolving market landscape.

Analyst Insight

According to Procurement Resource, the price trend of Dinitrotoluene is estimated to trace the trajectory followed by its feedstock toluene and nitric acid prices. The market momentum is further expected to be altered by the procurement rates from the downstream automotive and construction industries.

Dinitrotoluene Price Trend for the First Half of 2023

Dinitrotoluene, or DNT, is an organic chemical primarily used in manufacturing other important chemicals as a precursor or intermediate. The prices mostly depend upon the downstream demands from various chemical, dyeing, and pharma industries and the fluctuations in its feedstock nitric acid and toluene prices.

Dinitrotoluene prices fluctuated throughout the first half of the year 2023 as the downstream demands were very limited, which could easily be catered by the existing inventory stocks. So, more and more supplies kept piling up, raising the inventory levels. But the market offtakes didn’t pick up, and market performance remained on the weaker side. Overall, bearish market sentiments were observed.

Analyst Insight

According to Procurement Resource, the price trend for Dinitrotoluene are expected to continue fluctuating since the downstream demands continue to remain bearish.

Production Processes

  • Production Dinitrotoluene from Toluene; via Continuous Nitration; from Alternate Process

In this process using toluene, DNT is produced in a two-step nitration in the presence of nitric acid and sulfuric acid. First, toluene is nitrated to moninitrotoluene following a second nitration which produces dinitrotoluene.
