Ethyl-Tert-butyl Ether Price Trend for the First Half of 2022


Owing to the unprecedented rise in crude oil and natural gas prices, petrochemical prices soared globally. The cost of feedstock ethanol and butene soared throughout the Asian market. At the beginning of the year, the Ethyl-Tert-Butyl Ether (ETBE) price averaged 11900 RMB/MT. However, the prices started rising sharply toward the end of the first quarter due to the huge volatility created in the market by the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

The ETBE prices averaged 12800 RMB/MT towards the end of the first quarter. The prices relaxed a bit during the second quarter due to the baulking of the buyers amid the cautious market conditions and the looming speculation of a global recession. The ETBE price averaged 12400 RMB/MT towards the end of June.


The price trends of ETBE remained anchored in the European market throughout the first half of the said year. The acute energy crisis trigged high-cost inflation in the domestic market, thereby inflating the costs of all the commodities. Amid the robust demand from the consumer market, the prices of ETBE kept afloat in the market. The prices of feedstock ethanol averaged 1.3 USD/litre in the second quarter.

North America

Amid the surging crude oil prices, labour shortages, raised freight charges, trade bottlenecks/restrictions and robust consumer demand, the prices of ETBE remained towards the higher end of the scale in the US domestic market.

ETBE is a highly flammable volatile organic compound. It is a clear to light-yellow-colored liquid and belongs to the class of ethers. It is used in place of ethanol during the production of gasoline from crude oil as it provides greater air quality and is less challenging logistically and technically. It is a common irritant, and prolonged exposure causes damage to the eyes and skin.
