Ethyl Vinyl Alcohol Copolymer Price Trend for the First Half of 2023


The first quarter of 2023 witnessed a huge jump in the prices of ethyl vinyl alcohol copolymers due to the deleting level of inventories and slumping production rates. The availability of raw materials and imports from other nations remained low throughout the quarter while the demand for ethyl vinyl alcohol copolymer continued to rise. However, this trajectory could not be followed in the second quarter as the downstream sectors declined their demand. The cost of raw materials also failed to provide the necessary support, but the steady supply of ethyl vinyl alcohol copolymer in the region helped stabilize its price trend.


The European countries witnessed a steep incline in the prices of ethyl vinyl alcohol copolymer in the first quarter of 2023, similar to that was seen in the Asia Pacific region. The market dynamics were supported by the limited number of imports, and thus, scarcity of material in the region, along with the disruptions in the supply chains, caused the prices to incline.

In the second quarter also, the trend inclined initially with the high demand from the food and packaging industries and weak supply in the region. But soon, the effect of declining raw material costs and falling crude oil prices caused the price trend of ethyl vinyl alcohol copolymer to move southwards. To further add to this injury, the spiking rates of inflation and hike in bank interest rates aided this southward journey of ethyl vinyl alcohol copolymer prices.

North America

An unusual spike in the prices of ethyl vinyl alcohol copolymer was observed in the first quarter of 2023. Due to the falling level of inventories backed by strong demand from the end-user industries, the prices of ethyl vinyl alcohol copolymer inclined in the region.

This trend was followed till the initial months of the second quarter, but in the later months, the prices declined with the subdued demand for the product. The region also suffered from rising labour costs and a recession in the market. Additionally, the drop in fuel demand, low consumption rates and restricted movement of the upstream market caused the prices to move southward. However, in the last month, the trend soared again due to the low availability of the product in the region amid the rising demand from the downstream industries.

Analyst Insight

According to Procurement Resource, the price trend of ethyl vinyl alcohol copolymer is expected to fluctuate as the demand from end-user industries seems to be erratic, given the rising inflation levels.

Ethyl vinyl alcohol copolymer, also known as ethylene vinyl alcohol copolymer (EVOH), is a high-performance thermoplastic. It is a copolymer of ethylene and vinyl alcohol monomers. EVOH exhibits exceptional barrier properties to gases, particularly oxygen and moisture, making it ideal for applications in food packaging, medical packaging, automotive fuel tanks, pipes, hoses, agricultural films, and other industrial uses. Its ability to prevent gas permeation helps in preserving product freshness, enhancing safety, and meeting environmental regulations.
