Methionine Price Trend for the Second Quarter of 2022

Transactions in the domestic market were average under the weak domestic and international demand, and the price in the trade market plummeted. Methionine's average market price as of May 26 was 20,600 RMB/MT, down more than 900 yuan/ton from the start of the month and 4.2%.

The trade market had been looking for replenishment orders due to the gradual price increases of domestic brands caused by the March trade surplus of methionine exports and the support of raw material costs. The market price of Methionine fell by 900 RMB/MT in Q2 due to the weak downstream demand.

Approximately 8,900 tonnes of solid Methionine were exported from China in April 2022, according to statistics from customs, a decrease of 2,200 tonnes or 19.7% from the previous month. The foreign demand decreased slightly due to the first quarter's sharp increase in methionine exports, and overall export volume remained normal.
