Isobutene Price Trend for the First Half of 2022


The price trends for isobutene showed an upward pattern in the Asia-Pacific region during the said period. The unprecedented market volatility owing to complex geopolitical realities coupled with the reemergence of covid-19 cases caused the manufacturers to raise their quotations for petrochemicals.

The price of isobutene averaged 1666 USD/MT Ex-Mumbai during the first quarter. These higher quotations were supported by the solid downstream demand from elastomers and the gasoline additives market. These higher prices continued in the second quarter despite the lowering of the crude oil prices because the factories started churning out products at much higher rates to meet the growing market demands.


The European region faced the direct consequences of the Russian invasion of Ukraine. The European embargo on Russian oil and western sanctions triggered an acute economic meltdown with repercussions felt worldwide. The high operating and sourcing costs caused the manufacturers to pass the higher prices on to the customers. The price of isobutene settled at 1115 USD/MT during the first quarter of the said period. Despite the alarming costs, the prices remained afloat in the market owing to inflated freight charges, labour costs and strong market sentiments.

North America

The price trends for isobutene in the American domestic market closely mimicked the global outlook. The inflated costs, labour and transportation shortages, and supply constraints added to the high operating costs for isobutene. The demand for bio-based fuel additives further propelled the prices of isobutene.
