Methyl Methacrylate Price Trend For the First Half of 2023


In the Asia-Pacific region, the price trend of methyl methacrylate inclined in the initial months of the first quarter as the market activities resumed after the holiday season, and increased interest of buyers also supported the rising prices of methyl methacrylate. However, the end phase of the quarter was not as favorable as the initial.

The production rates of methyl methacrylate in China inclined, but the demand from end-user industries did not support the rise in prices, and with a steady supply of imports, the price trend of methyl methacrylate declined at the end of the first quarter.

In the second quarter, the market dynamics again changed direction as the methyl methacrylate prices rose with the inclination in the number of inquiries from both domestic and international buyers. This high demand for methyl methacrylate was catered with a consistent supply of the product, which caused a problem towards the end-phase when downstream activities slid and led to the rise in inventories, hampering the growth of methyl methacrylate price trend.


The first quarter of 2023 witnessed a positive inclination in the price trend of methyl methacrylate as the European markets were supported by the rise in consumption rates, high cost of production, and spike in demand from the downstream industries. However, the second quarter did not follow this movement of the price trend due to rising rates of inflation and interest.

These drastic market conditions caused cautious buying of consumers, reducing consumption rates. Along with this, the influx of cheap imports from overseas industries and the shutting down of several production units resulted in the decline in the price trend of methyl methacrylate.

North America

In North America, the prices of methyl methacrylate consistently increased with the help of stable demand and support from the downstream industries. In addition to this, the rising cost of production, high prices of energy, and cuts in supply chains due to the shutting down of some manufacturing units helped the price trend of methyl methacrylate to rise.

In the final phase of the first quarter, the demand from the downstream industries and the rise in the level of inventories hampered the growth of methyl methacrylate prices. The initial months of the second quarter were favorable for the prices of methyl methacrylate, but as the quarter followed, the rates of procurement from downstream industries and supplies of methyl methacrylate flooded the region, and thus, the price trend of methyl methacrylate faced southwards.

Production Processes

  • Production of Methyl Methacrylate from t-Butanol and Methanol

This procedure starts with the oxidation of t-butanol to create metacrolein, which is then further oxidised to create methacrylic acid. Finally, methyl methacrylate is created by esterifying the generated methacrylic acid with methanol.
