Furfuryl Alcohol Price Trend

Lately, furfuryl alcohol prices have been increasing. The increase in price is primarily due to an increase in demand. Furfuryl alcohol is well known for being a plant-based derivative rather than a petroleum-based derivative, with the majority of its producers headquartered in China. Previously, Chinese commercial policy intended to cut prices in order to drive out foreign competitors, resulting in a Chinese monopoly.

Furthermore, for the past several years, this molecule has been employed in the manufacturing of textile fibres, to meet the demand of the apparel industry, which consumes a lot of raw materials compared to foundries.
