Dwindling upstream costs because of lowered feedstock sodium hydroxide rates affected the price trajectory for liquid bleach in both India and China. Some marginal improvements in prices were seen in China in the fourth quarter, but the Indian market continued its downhill journey for the entire period. Overall, the general market sentiments remained dull and muted as not much upliftment was noticed in the consumption behavior.

Europe

The performance of the liquid bleach price trend during both the third and fourth quarters of 2023 remained dull as the price graph remained wavering at the lower end of the curve. The inventories were already overflowing since the beginning as the downstream sectors were not that responsive. Noticing this, the suppliers cut down on supplies to maintain some parity between supply and demand outlooks. However, this, too, couldn’t help much as the price trend was observed to be struggling for the majority of the said period.

North America

The liquid bleach market in the third quarter showcased a borderline appreciation in its price trend in North American markets as both the raw materials chlorine and caustic soda got costlier during this time, eventually raising the production costs. However, this inclination was very short-lived as the price graph again went downhill in the fourth quarter. The lackluster consumption from the downstream industries drove these market sentiments.

Analyst Insight

According to Procurement Resource, not much improvement is anticipated in the Liquid Bleach price trends going forward since the inventories are capable of catering to the projected consumer demands.

Liquid Bleach Price Trend for the First Half of 2023

Asia

Liquid Bleach observed mixed price trend during the first half of 2023. It continued its downhill in January and fell rapidly, driven by the dull demands. But the market started balancing itself from the next month onward as the trade activities started normalizing. It was around April that the market again took a dipping turn in price trend because of the rapidly rising and overflowing inventory levels. It was only at the end of the second quarter that the market again saw some stabilization owing to the high demand.

Europe

In the European Liquid Bleach market, prices oscillated continuously, but the fluctuations were in a narrow range. But as the quarters shifted, the price trend observed some upliftment aided by increasing demands, and these rising trend continued for the next couple of months. However, it was only by the end of the second quarter that the price trend again.

North America

After starting slow in January this year, the Liquid Bleach prices took an upturn quickly. The prices rose rapidly post-January as the downstream demands from the textile and home care sectors increased. But with a rise in inventory levels, the prices again shifted south by the end of the second quarter.

Analyst Insight

According to Procurement Resource, the price trend for Liquid Bleach are expected to continue fluctuating going forward since the rising inventory levels amid volatile demands are likely to influence the market.

Liquid Bleach Price Trend for the Second Half of 2022

Asia

The liquid bleach market in the Asia-Pacific region registered an oscillating pattern in the second half of 2022. From the demand perspective, the price trend witnessed a stable trend. The strengthening of Chinese currency in the international market also supported the inclining price trend of liquid bleach in the region. However, the rise in covid cases and China’s imposed restrictions on trade and production to curb the spread adversely affected the liquid bleach market.

Europe

In the European region, the price trend of liquid bleach suffered from weak demand and reduced offtakes along with high supply and thus a rise in inventories was seen in the region. The prices were also affected by the high energy prices, the uncertain market economy, and reduced production rates amid the high costs of manufacturing. The prices of liquid bleach thus subdued as the overall European market struggled to remain afloat in the third and fourth quarters of 2022.

North America

The third quarter of 2022 witnessed an uprising trend in terms of liquid bleach prices. The prices of the commodity were supported by stable demand from the downstream industries and increased profit margins. The fourth quarter was, however, somewhat stagnant as with the rising market uncertainties, the confidence of consumers declined along with reduced trade activities and declining industrial output.

Analyst Insight

According to Procurement Resource, the price trend for liquid bleach are likely to remain unsettled in the coming quarter. The problem of oversupply, weak global economy, and high energy production costs will continue to plague the prices of liquid bleach.

Liquid Bleach Price Trend For the First Half of 2022

Asia

With the reemergence of covid-19 and strict precautionary restrictions, factories' output suffered causing the prices of liquid bleach to rise drastically amid the increasing demand. The higher prices led to the phenomenon of demand destruction, hence the prices dwindled and stabilized after a while. The removal of restrictions caused the factories to churn out products at faster rates but the cautious buying activity of the market did not let the prices of liquid bleach increase beyond a certain level.

Europe

The price of liquid bleach was observed to rise on the European market as a result of supplies being impacted and industrial activity being interrupted by the conflict between Russia and Ukraine. The European market first observed chlorine shortages due to varied production cutbacks in late March. Liquid chlorine prices jumped by more than 5% in March. The prices of liquid chlorine remained strong in the second quarter owing to the robust demand from the home-care industries.

North America

Prices for liquid bleach increased as a result of numerous chlor-alkali plant closures in North America during the first quarter of 2022. Businesses were under pressure as a result of the shortage of goods brought on by these interruptions. Buyers in May showed enthusiasm for their purchases as they anticipated a severe chlorine shortage in the second quarter of 2022. Because of this, liquid bleach prices rose in the american domestic market.

Liquid Bleach is prepared by absorbing chlorine gas in a cold sodium hydroxide solution. The reaction process yields sodium chloride, sodium hypochlorite and water as products. There is no need to isolate them to prepare sodium hypochlorite as NaCl obtained is further subjected to electrolysis producing NaClO.
