Isobutyric Acid Price Trend for the H1 of 2023


The Isobutyric Acid market fluctuated in the first two quarters of 2023. In the initial months of the first quarter, the prices of Iso Butyric Acid decreased significantly as the decline in demand from the downstream companies was noticeable. Further, the price of crude oil also declined, negatively impacting the market of iso-butyric acid. But the market started showing signs of improvement from March. The trend inclined with the rising demand; however, it became stagnant in the following months upon the stabilization of the demand-supply equilibrium.


In Europe, the price trend of Iso Butyric Acid suffered from industrial strikes, weak production costs, and decreased availability of raw materials in the first two quarters of 2023. Additionally, producers reduced their prices amid the weak demand for raw materials and decreased input costs. Along with this, the demand from the paints, cosmetics, and related sectors also declined, which eventually affected the price trend of Iso Butyric Acid negatively.

North America

The Isobutyric Acid market showcased a mixed trend in the first two quarters of 2023 in North America. The prices first declined in the initial months of the first quarter as the demand from the cosmetics manufacturers subdued. But from March, the trend gained momentum with support from the improving market dynamics of the paints and cosmetics sector and the significantly inclining crude oil costs.
