Heavy Alkyl Benzene (HAB) Price Trend for the First Half of 2022


The high crude oil and natural gas prices due to the Russian-Ukrainian conflict heavily impacted the petrochemical industry. The prices of feedstock benzene soared, which caused the Heavy Alkyl Benzene (HAB) prices to rise in the Indian domestic market along with the booming demand from the downstream detergents and laundry industries. The HAB prices averaged 2848 USD/MT in the Indian domestic market.

However, the price trends for HAB in the Chinese domestic arena were somewhat opposite to that seen in the Indian market. During the first quarter, despite the high crude oil prices, the HAB prices stood firm due to sufficient inventories in the market. The HAB prices declined towards the second quarter owing to the muted market sentiments due to the zero-tolerance covid restrictions by the Chinese government.


The price trends for Heavy Alkyl Benzene (HAB) remained anchored in the European market throughout the said period. The surging operating costs, supply shortages, trade restrictions and budding downstream demand caused the HAB prices to rise steeply. The HAB prices averaged 2475 USD/MT in the European domestic arena.

North America

The HAB prices surged throughout the US domestic market owing to the heightened energy costs, labour shortages and trade restrictions. The price of HAB averaged 2080 USD/MT during the first quarter of the said year. The prices steadily increased during the second quarter due to the robust downstream demand, and the supply further tightened due to the shutdown of many refineries for annual maintenance checks.
