Isophorone Diisocyanate Price Trend for First Half of 2023


The price trend of isophorone diisocyanate in the first quarter of 2023 was stagnant due to the stability of the feedstock market.

Several polyurethane production units increased their consumption rates and supported the rise in the prices of isophorone diisocyanate. In the second quarter, however, the trend took up a negative trajectory as downstream demand and the weak position of Asian currency affected the prices of isophorone diisocyanate negatively.

Isophorone Diisocyanate (IPDI), belonging to the class of aliphatic isocyanates, consists of two isocyanate groups linked by an isophorone substituent. It is highly irritating to the skin and is acutely toxic to aquatic life. It is a white to yellow colored liquid with a distinct odor. IPDI exists as two stereoisomers- cis and trans; both are unsymmetrical molecules having similar reactivities. It is used in making polyurethane coatings that are resistant to abrasion and degradation from ultraviolet light.
