Ethyl Acetate Price Trend for the First Half of 2023


Mixed price trends were observed for Ethyl Acetate in the Asian market. Prices rose initially in the first quarter as the downstream demands from aroma and flavour industries inclined owing to the Chinese New Year holidays. But as the holidays got over a steady decline in demand was noticed in the second quarter. As the inventory levels rose and could cater to declining demands, ethyl acetate prices started falling in the Asian market.


The European Ethyl Acetate market had a good start in early Q1, but by the mid of Q1, prices started plummeting and continued to plunge till the end of Q2. The decline in the market offtakes primarily caused the prices to fall, but the decline in upstream costs also contributed to the falling prices. As crude oil and energy prices declined, manufacturing costs were cut down, while the reduction in transportation charges with freight normalization also brought the upstream costs down. Overall, low swinging price trends were observed.

North America

Contrary to the global pattern, the price trends of Ethyl Acetate performed fairly well in the American market during H1’23. Prices continued to grow during both quarters. The rise in demands from the downstream coating and adhesive industries remained the major driving factor. Continuous movement in inventory stocks also supported the inclining prices. As the industrial maintenance season constricted the supplies, prices got boosted. Overall, the market showed bullish behaviour.

Production Processes

  • Production of Ethyl Acetate via Fischer Esterification; via Dehydrogenation of Ethanol; and via Tishchenko Reaction

Ethyl Acetate is produced from the reaction of ethanol and acetic acid. The process includes a small amount of sulphuric acid to be preheated and then refluxed by feeding it into an esterifying column.

The mixture then goes through to a second refluxing column, to remove around 85% ethyl acetate. Then, the water is mixed and it causes a separation into two layers. The residue is then fed into another refluxing column to remove any final impurities to manufacture 95% Ethyl Acetate.


The displayed pricing data is derived through weighted average purchase price, including contract and spot transactions at the specified locations unless otherwise stated.
