Isononanol Price Trend for the Second Half of 2023


The isononanol industry exuded a very vacillating price trend throughout the said period of H2 of 2023 in the Asian markets. The upward rush in the global crude oil prices in the early months of Q3 prompted the market rise for all allied petrochemicals. So, isononanol prices were also impacted as they surged throughout the third quarter with an incline in the production costs. Similarly, the fourth quarter also saw the isononanol prices mimicking the market behavior of its feedstock materials.

The disturbance in the shipping industry because of the Red Sea crisis caused global trade to decline. The industrial demands dipped both domestically and internationally and pivoted the isononanol price graph in the southward direction during the last three months of 2023. Overall, mixed market sentiments were witnessed.


Isononanol prices in the European markets were hinged relatively on the lower side compared to the Asian markets. The third quarter began with an overflowing level of isononanol inventories, which kept the market prices down despite a rise in the production costs since the suppliers wanted to sustain the product movement in the market. As the final quarter hit, the prices declined even more as the upstream production costs also declined, this time with a fall in crude oil prices. Overall, a declining price trend was witnessed.

North America

The North American isononanol industry was in a close alliance with the global trend as the prices mostly wavered and plunged here as well. Meek demand patterns influenced the supply and demand dynamics in a regressive manner. Because of the poor consumer response, the surge in crude oil prices in the early months also couldn’t help the regional isononanol market much. Conclusively, muted market sentiments were witnessed.

Analyst Insight

According to Procurement Resource, the Isononanol price trends are estimated to oscillate in the coming months. The regional dynamics will change as per the variations in regional consumption patterns.

Isononanol Price Trend for the First Half of 2023


The price trend of isononanol was dependent on the market activities of olefins as they served as its feedstock material. In the first quarter, the price trend inclined as the Chinese manufacturing sector showcased a strong revival after a long stretch of the Lunar holiday season and COVID restrictions.

This also helped the economic conditions of the region to improve, which resulted in a rise in the demand from the downstream industries. This trajectory was followed in the second quarter, too, as the end-user industries supported the market trend. Further, the increased number of inquiries from the overseas sectors supported the price trend of isononanol.


The first quarter of 2023 proved to be fruitful for the isononanol prices as with the increase in the output of end-user industries, the demand for isononanol and its related products also increased. In the second quarter, however, the winds changed due to high rates of energy production, which had an adverse effect on the cost of manufacturing. In addition to this, the release of imports from the overseas sector and the simultaneous decline in their number of inquiries resulted in the decline in the prices of isononanol.

North America

In the initial months of the first quarter, the feedstock market of isononanol moved slowly as extreme weather conditions disrupted the supply chains. However, the market gained its required momentum in the subsequent months with the increase in demand from the downstream sectors as the existent level of inventories was not sufficient to satisfy the appetite of consumers. However, the prices dipped in the second quarter. The second quarter suffered from the weak condition of the economy that caused the level of inventories and bank interest rates to shoot up, hampering the growth of the isononanol price trend.

Analyst Insight

According to Procurement Resource, the price trend of Isononanol is expected to decline as the demand from the end-user industries seems to be under the pressure of rising inflation.
