The beginning of quarter three was humble as the inventories were still stocked with excess products, which forced suppliers to cut down the prices in order to promote product movement in the market. However, as the stocks started depleting, the price graph started rising again. This situation went on for some time till the middle of the fourth quarter. After that, the global trade depreciation started affecting all industries, and the lackluster demand in the international market again pushed down the methyl salicylate prices. Overall, mixed market sentiments were witnessed.
