Isodecanol Price Trend for the Second Half of 2022


The market for Isodecanol is dependent on its feedstock propylene. The propylene market remained sluggish in the third and fourth quarters of 2022. The stagnancy was attributed to the consistently declining demand from the end-user industries, high availability of the product, and uneven market conditions. The export activities also fell steeply, especially in the third quarter of 2022 and the control of OPEC+ over the crude oil prices hampered the price trend of Isodecanol in the Asia-Pacific region.


The European market was unfavourable in terms of the price hike of feedstock propylene thereby directly impacting the price trends of Isodecanol. The market witnessed a huge decline as the economy and trade activities in the region were hampered by the rising fears of recession. The low level of inquiries, increasing inflation, and high production rates resulted in weak confidence of the consumer and thus subdued the demand from the end-user industries. In the fourth quarter, the prices rebounded as the market tried to recover by resuming its production practices after the holiday season. In all, the price trend of Isodecanol followed a negative growth in the European region for the third and fourth quarters of 2022.

North America

In North America, the prices of Isodecanol were majorly affected by the availability of feedstock materials and demand patterns. The domestic and international markets remained favourable towards the price hike of the commodity in the third quarter. However, in the fourth quarter, the prices remained stagnant due to high inflation and interest rates along with reduced offtakes from the domestic market. This caused disruptions in the supply-demand equilibrium and thus aided the downfall of Isodecanol prices.

Production Processes

  • Production of Isodecanol from Oxo Process

In the oxo process, aldehydes are produced from alkenes, where a formyl group and a hydrogen atom are added to the carbon-carbon double bond. Similarly, the oxo synthesis of nonenes in the presence of cobalt catalyst leads to the formation of the corresponding aldehyde, which is further reduced to form the corresponding alcohol, i.e., Isodecanol.


The displayed pricing data is derived through weighted average purchase price, including contract and spot transactions at the specified locations unless otherwise stated. The information provided comes from the compilation and processing of commercial data officially reported for each nation (i.e., government agencies, external trade bodies, and industry publications).
