Ethylene Carbonate Price Trend for the First Half of 2023


The Asian ethylene carbonate market fluctuated in the first quarter of 2023 and then declined gradually in the second quarter. In the first quarter, the trend surged initially as the demand from the end-user industries rose but soon plunged due to a drop in manufacturing rates. As the sales of electric vehicles also saw a slump, the buyers lost their confidence in the ethylene carbonate market and thus reduced their number of orders. These subdued market conditions eventually led to a fall in the price trend of ethylene carbonate.


A stretch of uncertainties was observed in the first quarter of 2023 in the ethylene carbonate price trend. The region was affected by the rising rates of inflation and high costs of energy production. These factors also negatively impacted the demand for ethylene carbonate from both domestic and overseas buyers. In addition, the second quarter also suffered from fluctuating raw material costs along with cuts in production activities and profit margins. The trend in this quarter was somehow stable as demand from the EV market kept the prices of ethylene carbonate afloat.

North America

The North American region experienced a continuous decline in the price trend of ethylene carbonate in both the first and second quarters of 2023. The market suffered from the stagnant demand from electronics, EV, and related sectors and poor market sentiments that caused the buyers to adopt a wait-and-see approach. The decreasing number of new orders and declining export rates further aided this falling ethylene carbonate prices.

Analyst Insight
