Ethyl Acrylate Price Trend for the Q1 of 2024


In Asia, the ethyl acrylate market displayed varying price trends during the first quarter of 2024. Malaysia saw some stability in the ethyl acrylate prices due to balanced supply and demand, while Japan experienced a slight price increase attributed to supply chain disruptions, particularly in the paint and coating sectors. This increased demand supported the incline in production rates and the stagnancy in the acrylic acid's costs further enhanced the capacity of producers.

The central bank in Japan also raised its benchmark interest rate, signaling a shift from weak monetary policy to bolstering domestic consumption and investment. However, in China, the ethyl acrylate market witnessed a subsequent decline in its price in the first quarter of 2024 after an initial phase of stagnant growth. The weak downstream demand in industries like tape master rolls and derivative chemicals also showcased signs of weak momentum. Additionally, the season of spring festivities and Chinese New Year holidays further resulted in dim outlook of the end user industries.


Despite high upstream and energy prices, European ethyl acrylate prices softened towards the end of the first quarter due to persistently subdued market fundamentals and dwindling sales figures. The demand dynamics of the region remained weak in the end phase of the quarter, with consumers adopting a wait-and-see approach.

The subdued demand, particularly from the polymer industry, also led to limited spot market activities and a pessimistic outlook for ethyl acrylate manufacturers. Although global crude oil prices rose and supply concerns eased in the European countries, the cost of production of the commodity remained stagnant. Additionally, supply from Asia and the US supplemented the market, meeting limited requirements.

North America

The feedstock market of ethyl acrylate faced significant challenges globally, notably in the United States, which was well reflected in the pricing patterns of ethyl acrylate. The price trend witnessed a downturn in prices due to the weak position of acrylic acid and poor demand sentiments, surplus inventories, and oscillating crude oil prices.

In North America, adverse conditions persisted with ample supplies and sluggish demand from downstream industries, especially construction. Additionally, limited improvements in consumption rates, partly supported by upstream cost rises in the initial phase of the quarter, gave the market slight momentum.

Analyst Insight

According to Procurement Resource, the price trend of Ethyl Acrylate is estimated to drive northwards in the next quarter as the downstream demand and feedstock market outlook seem to be supporting the uptrend.

The fourth quarter of 2023 followed in the footsteps of the past quarters as the ethyl acrylate price trend declined consistently during the fourth quarter. The foremost cause of this fall was the consistent dip in the prices of feedstock chemicals such as acrylic acid.

Additionally, the weak confidence of consumers and fluctuations in the cost of energy production disrupted the overall dynamics of ethyl acrylate price trend in the fourth quarter of 2023. The end phase of this quarter, however, brought a sigh of relief for the traders as there was a slight uptick in the industrial activities of the region.


A gradual, not steep, fall in the ethyl acrylate price trend was witnessed in the last quarter of 2023. This smooth instead of sudden fall could be attributed to the resilience of the European industrial sector amid several challenging conditions. Since the many past quarters, the traders struggled with the feeble appetite of consumers which in the end quarter improved only slightly. Moreover, due to concerns over inflation and surging interest rates, the trading activities for ethyl acrylate remained subdued and thus caused the ethyl acrylate prices to move downwards.

North America

The uptick in the ethyl acrylate price trend during the third quarter of 2023 was not well translated during the last quarter of 2023. The ethyl acrylate price graph spiked in the previous quarter due to limited inventories and a substantial incline in the ethyl acrylate demand. However, during the fourth quarter, the scenario was exactly the opposite due to a fall in the export rates over the drought-like conditions in the Panama Canal. Additionally, the consumers also looked resistant to placing orders in bulk as the concerns of declining crude oil prices and, in turn, the production costs loomed over the North American market.

Analyst Insight

According to Procurement Resource, the price trend of Ethyl Acrylate will mostly show a slight incline in the coming quarters, given the stabilization of the global downstream demand and economic uncertainties.

Ethyl Acrylate Price Trend for the July - September of 2023


In the third quarter of 2023, a number of factors prompted the upshoot in ethyl acrylate price trend. The cost of raw materials grew consistently in this quarter, along with the consumer appetite. The trading sector also enjoyed the benefits of healthy demand from the overseas downstream industries and a rise in the prices of upstream products.

In addition to this, the escalation in the cost of crude oil and petroleum imports from Russia and Saudi Arabia also shared a significant share in the upward movement of ethyl acrylate price trend.


The European countries registered slight fluctuations in the ethyl acrylate price trend during the third quarter of 2023. The first half incurred feeble demand and a bearish outlook of the consumers as the rising interest rates suppressed the lending and borrowing activities of the downstream industries. However, as the quarter progressed, the inventories depleted gradually while the demand dynamics improved, giving the ethyl acrylate price trend a boost.

North America

Throughout the third quarter of 2023, the ethyl acrylate price trend were able to maintain a stagnant quotation, but towards the termination, the traders registered a slight drop in the market dynamics. In the first half of the quarter, the reduced stock volumes and limited overseas purchases created ripples in the ethyl acrylate price graph, but as the quarter approached its middle, the supply and demand complemented each other.

However, the rate of procurement from the downstream paints and coatings industries changed their routes, and limited purchasing towards the end of the quarter pushed the ethyl acrylate price trend in a downward direction.

Analyst Insight

According to Procurement Resource, the price trend of Ethyl Acrylate are expected to oscillate in the forthcoming quarters as the demand from the paints and coatings industries and the scenario of balanced imports and exports is likely to be disrupted by global geopolitical challenges.

Ethyl Acrylate Price Trend for First Half of 2023


In the Asia-Pacific region, ethyl acrylate prices dipped during the period. This fall in the prices was attributed to the declining demand and excess availability of the product in the market. The falling demand did not affect the manufacturing rates, leading to a rise in inventories. The end merchants were thus forced to sell their products at compromised rates which further aided the decline in the prices of ethyl acrylate. The prices of ethyl acrylate averaged around 9500 RMB/MT in the Chinese domestic market in June’23.


The downward trajectory of prices of ethyl acrylate was seen in the European region as a result of the fluctuating market dynamics. The prices suffered from the decline in demand and falling prices of feedstock materials in the local region. The weak industrial market and low purchasing rates also affected the ethyl acrylate trend in Germany.

North America

The demand sector in North America followed in the footsteps of Europe and the Asia-Pacific region, as the prices were adversely affected by the low demand and high production rates in the region. The rising inventories and weak fertilizers market also affected the trading activities, fueling the declining price trends for ethyl acrylate.

Analyst Insight

According to Procurement Resource, the price trends for ethyl acrylate are likely to remain unsettled in the upcoming quarter. As the demand from the end-user industries seems weak, the falling cost pressure and over-supplied inventories will cause the price trends to follow a lowered trajectory.

Ethyl Acrylate Price Trend For the Second Half of 2022

North America

The third quarter of 2022 saw a significant plunge in the prices of ethyl acrylate in the North American region. The major reason causing the tardy trends of ethyl acrylate was witnessed in the distressed demands from the downstream industries (adhesives and sealants) owing to the upheaval in the demand-supply equation. Moreover, the saturated inventories played yet another role in marring the prices for ethyl acrylate in the North American region. Additionally, making the situation worse was the augmentation of interest rates by the central bank, deeply down-swinging the economic play in the region.

Towards the fourth quarter, the ethyl acrylate prices went to the trough even more. The prime dynamic that could be held culpable was the copious supplies and slashed demands/consumption. The exacerbating entity that abraded the prices in this regard was the melioration of the supply chains. And the most prominent reason for the plunging prices was the trembling price trajectories of feedstock in the region. All these dynamics pulled the prices for ethyl acrylate down severely.


The second half of 2022 was passive for the ethyl acrylate price trend in the Asia-Pacific region. The Q32022 saw a debilitating price dynamic for ethyl acrylate, chalking the prime factors for the cause on the back of enfeebled operating costs, chopped demands from the downstream industry, and depleted prices for upstream propylene (which is used to form acrylic acid, which then is esterified to form ethyl acrylate). Although the offtakes to the importing countries from China were a bit aligned, the overall prices saw a derelict dynamic.

In Q42022, the prices for Ethyl Acrylate saw no improvement in the APAC region. With the jaded demand and consumption from the downstream coatings and adhesives industries, the price of the feedstock, Ethyl Acrylate, was severely smashed. Also, considering the overall demand was on the downhill, the supply side weighed on the prices for ethyl acrylate. Although the local market barely managed to make soft profits, the prices went for a toll overall.


The second half of 2022 saw a downslope trend in the prices for Ethyl Acrylate. The prime reason for the market was the debilitated price trends for feedstock- Acrylic acid. The slothful demand from the downstream industries walloped the prices for Ethyl Acrylate. Owing to which, the prices saw a faltering trend throughout the second half, i.e., the third and fourth quarters of 2022.

Ethyl Acrylate Price Trend For the First Half of 2022


During the first quarter, an oscillating pattern was seen in the price trends for ethyl acrylate. With the Russian invasion of Ukraine in the last week of February, crude oil prices soared to an unprecedented high. The prices of feedstock ethanol and acrylic acid soared globally. The ethyl acrylate prices in the Indian domestic market averaged 3100 USD/MT. However, the prices stabilized and declined during the second quarter.

In the Chinese domestic arena, the prices of ethyl acrylate declined due to the rising covid cases and halted production owing to the zero-tolerance covid restrictions. Even after removing restrictions, the factories did not run at optimum operating rates due to the demand destruction in the market. The feedstock ethanol and acrylic acid prices relaxed, averaging 7150 RMB/MT and 13,939 RMB/ton (approx.), respectively.


The European market reeled under the pressure of surging energy costs and double-digit inflation owing to the continuing Russia-Ukraine geopolitical stance. The acute energy crisis, high operating upstream costs, robust demand from the downstream sectors amid the supply side constraints and raised transportation charges impacted the prices of ethyl acrylate heavily. The price trends for ethyl acrylate remained strong throughout the year's first half. The feedstock ethanol and acrylic acid price averaged 1.3 USD/litre and 1422 USD/MT FOB, respectively.

North America

The price trends for ethyl acrylate followed its European counterpart. The surging crude oil and natural gas prices, supply shortages, trade restrictions, labour shortages and freight charges are some of the reasons which directly impacted the ethyl acrylate prices in the US domestic market. The price of ethyl acrylate averaged 2680 USD/MT in the said period.

Ethyl Acrylate Production Processes

  • Production of Ethyl Acrylate from Acrylic Acid and Ethanol

The production of ethyl acrylate is carried out via the esterification of acrylic acid and ethanol. It is carried out using an in-situ reactor where the feedstocks are added with the acid catalyst. A mixture containing ethyl acrylate, ethanol, acrylic acid, water, and acid catalyst is obtained upon the reaction. This mixture is carried to an ester distillation column where the products are separated. The desired ethyl acrylate is condensed, whereas the other unspent feedstock is sent to the reaction mixture again.


The displayed pricing data is derived through weighted average purchase price, including contract and spot transactions at the specified locations unless otherwise stated. The information provided comes from the compilation and processing of commercial data officially reported for each nation (i.e., government agencies, external trade bodies, and industry publications).
