Hydrofluoric Acid Price Trend for the First Half of 2023
The price trend of hydrofluoric acid dipped in the first and second quarters of 2023. The declining trend in the first quarter was triggered by a significant contraction between the supply and demand sectors with the reduced number of inquiries from the downstream industries. In addition, the refrigerants sector showed low demand, which led to poor shipment and a buildup of products in the market, causing a dramatic decline in the prices of hydrofluoric acid.
However, from March onwards, the market for hydrofluoric acid improved slightly as the level of inventory declined due to a restricted supply of fluorspar and recovering demand from the refrigerants industry. But this trend was not followed in the last months of the second quarter as from May to June the prices incurred a drop. The uncertainties in the demand sector, shutting down of manufacturing plants, and excess availability of the product pushed the prices in the negative zone.
In Europe, the price trend of hydrofluoric acid fluctuated throughout the first and second quarters of 2023. The prices of the commodity were majorly influenced by the absence of market players leading to a lowering of competition and a rise in the prices in the initial months of the first quarter. However, in the later months of both Q1 and Q2, the pressure of inflation and subdued demand led to a rise in economic uncertainties. Along with this, the low support from oil refining and downstream industries further aided the decline in hydrofluoric acid prices.
The fluctuating trend in Europe was also seen in the North American region. The prices here in the initial months rose as the government's monetary policies got strict, and the prices of energy production fluctuated heavily. But the rising inflation rates limited the movement of purchasers in the market; the prices declined in the subsequent months and struggled throughout the first half.
According to Procurement Resource, the price of Hydrofluoric acid is estimated to showcase a fluctuating trend in the upcoming quarters. The rise in inflationary pressure and oscillation in the demand sector will influence the price trend of hydrofluoric acid.

The reaction of dry fluorspar and sulfuric acid produces hydrofluoric acid. The raw materials go through an endothermic reaction to produce hydrogen fluoride gas which is condensed and distilled to give anhydrous hydrofluoric acid, which, when mixed with water, gives aqueous hydrofluoric acid.
