DMAPA (Dimethylaminopropylamine) Price Trend for the Second Half of 2023


In the initial phase of Q3'23, DMAPA (Dimethylaminopropylamine) prices began to decline in the Asian market under the influence of limited interest in the consumer sector. This was made worse for the suppliers by the fact that China and India were both dealing with surplus inventories and slowing demand.

The decline in foreign inquiries as Q4 drew near added to the downward pressure on prices. The decrease was also influenced by lower production costs due to falling feedstock prices for acrylonitrile and ammonia. Therefore, the second half of 2023 saw a noticeably muted performance from the Asian feedstock market.


During this period of the third and fourth quarter of 2023, the European polyacrylonitrile sector faced challenges. The downstream rubber industries' maintenance shutdowns had a major effect on market demand. At the same time, supplies were limited due to port congestion and the crisis that followed in the maritime sector, notably those brought on by problems in the Red Sea. As a result, prices in the market varied due to limited supply and poor demand, which generally resulted in a dull mood in the market.

North America

In the two quarters of H2'23, the DMAPA (Dimethylaminopropylamine) market in North America showed mixed results as the pricing trajectory was dependent on the performance of the market drivers. The third quarter was marked by weak local demand, which led providers to shift their inventory to other markets, especially Europe.

Due to a shortfall in domestic supply, DMAPA (Dimethylaminopropylamine) prices increased during the fourth quarter, but the increase in the prices was gradual rather than steep. The robust incline in the pricing patterns was prevented by the decline in the cost of crude oil and the uneven trend adopted by the feedstock prices.

Analyst Insight

According to Procurement Resource, the price trend of DMAPA (Dimethylaminopropylamine) is expected to fluctuate as the cost of feedstock acrylonitrile is estimated to remain uncertain along with the interest of consumers.

DMAPA (Dimethylaminopropylamine) Price Trend for the First Half of 2023


DMAPA (Dimethylaminopropylamine) is commonly used in making polyurethane foams, surfactants, self-care products, emulsifiers, flocculating agents, etc., and is produced using dimethylamine and acrylonitrile. So, the price trend also align with the availability of both feedstocks, but the market is primarily driven by downstream demands.

During the first half of the year 2023, the prices were observed to be on a declining trajectory as the inventory levels were high amid bearish demands. In the Chinese domestic market, the prices went from about 2510 USD/MT (FOB) in January’23 to about 2150 USD/MT (FOB) in June’23, experiencing a depreciation of about 14%.


The European market also behaved no differently than the Asian market, as the prices declined consistently here too. European DMAPA suppliers are more import-dependent, which was one of the reasons behind falling trend, as cheap Asian imports were available along with lowered demands from the consuming sectors. Prices declined from about 3250 USD/MT in January’23 to about 2500 USD/MT in June’23, with an approximate decline of about 23%.

Analyst Insight

According to Procurement Resource, with the given gap in supply and demand dynamics, the price trend of DMAPA are expected to fluctuate in the upcoming months.
