Methylamine Price Trend for the Q1 of 2024


During the initial phase of the first quarter, the methylamine price trend followed an oscillating trajectory as in China, a variety of factors guided the pricing trajectory of the methylamine market. During the early phase, both methanol and ammonia took on a southward trend with the onset of the Chinese New Year holidays.

This depreciation was, however, limited to only the initial phase of the quarter as in the following phase, the downstream industries raised their appetite, which further stabilized the surging inventories and supported an uptrend in methylamine prices in the latter phase of the first quarter.

However, the lack of overseas support due to delays in shipments' arrival and the extension of trading time by almost 2-3 weeks resulted in a decline in the export profit margin. However, the domestic agrochemical and pharmaceutical industries stabilized the overall momentum of the methylamine price trend.


In the European market, there are promising indications of a revival in the German chemicals sector, which kept the methylamine prices on the higher end during the early phase of Q1 of 2024. However, challenges persisted, such as attacks on commercial vessels in the Red Sea by Houthi rebels, leading to longer shipping routes and substantial delivery delays, particularly impacting Asian shipments to Europe.

The demand for methylamine from downstream sectors in Europe, including pharmaceuticals, personal care, dyes and pigments, and agrochemicals, also faced southwards as the quarter progressed towards its termination. However, chemical exporters noticed signs of a turnaround in global manufacturing sector demand, partly attributed to restocking activities by consumers. In the end phase, however, a slight upturn in production and the number of new orders was observed on the back of improving economic indicators of the region, raising the hopes of both traders and manufacturers of methylamine.

North America

During the first quarter of 2024, the US market for methylamine faced turbulence amid economic challenges. The market indicators suggested a significant depreciation in manufacturing activities, altering the trajectory of the methylamine price trend. Despite this downturn, demand for methylamine remained relatively positive from downstream sectors, notably pharmaceuticals and personal care, though the agrochemical sector struggled in the initial half of the first quarter. The varying demand dynamics across downstream markets, coupled with lower raw material costs and ample inventory, therefore prevented any uptrend in the pricing patterns of methylamine during Q1 of 2024.

Analyst Insight

According to Procurement Resource, the price trend of Methylamine is estimated to turn bullish in the near quarter as the surging cost of feedstock chemicals and rising prices of crude oil and other energy products will raise the overall cost of methylamine production.

Methylamine Price Trend for the October - December of 2023


The trajectory of methylamine price trend in Asian countries was dependent on the market dynamics of its feedstock ammonia and methanol. In the last quarter of 2023, the cost of both the feedstock chemicals declined. The cause of this pessimistic behavior of the market was the loss of a number of exports from the ports of Asian countries and the delay in shipments due to the rise in Isarel-Hamas tensions. Further, as the economic recovery of Asian countries, especially China, was slow, it resulted in oscillations in the prices of methylamine.


The persistent fluctuations in the prices of feedstock materials, such as ammonia and methanol, brought the trajectory of the methylamine price graph to a standstill. The European market then found it difficult to revert to its inclining journey as the loss of trade on account of geopolitical challenges arising from the end of the Israel-Hamas war and the aftereffects of the Russian invasion of Ukraine disrupted the export-import paths. Further, the crude oil crisis intensified the struggles of the methylamine market and thus limited the growth of its prices.

North America

The fourth quarter of 2023 saw weak demand from both regional and foreign markets for methylamine. As the quarter progressed, this led to the excess availability and rising stockpiles of methylamine, which asserted a negative impact on the price trend of methylamine. Additionally, the feedstock prices were in a rough condition during this time, which prompted the dealers to concurrently reduce their profit margins and price quotes. The dealers also found it difficult to continue trading methylamine, but the feeble movement of the downstream industries caused the methylamine price trend to fall downwards.

Analyst Insight

According to Procurement Resource, the price trend of Methylamine are expected to fluctuate in the forthcoming quarters as it is less likely that the downstream industries will increase their consumption abruptly.

Methyl Amine Price Trend for the July-September of 2023


The remarkable upswing in the methyl amine prices on account of the significant incline in the feedstock material prices helped in the growth of methyl amine prices throughout the third quarter of 2023.

The rise in demand from agrochemical and pharmaceutical industries and delays in shipments widened the gap between supply and demand, creating an opportunity for the methyl amine price trend to incline. The consumption of methyl amine not only remained positive in the domestic markets, but the overseas industries also showcased interest in the product and thus gave the methyl amine market its required momentum.


The methyl amine price graph struggled to maintain its pace amid sliding demand and gradually inclining inventory levels. The cost of production also fell on account of depleting cost of feedstock materials and the performance of the downstream industries continued to remain weak throughout the third quarter of 2023. Due to this fumbling market activity, the producers had to lower their prices and offer a significant number of discounts on the purchases, hampering the overall dynamics of the methyl amine market.

North America

The methyl amine price trend in the third quarter of 2023 suffered from the surplus availability of the product as its inventories swelled up, while the demand from the overseas and domestic markets remained feeble during the third quarter of 2023.

Further, the condition of the feedstock prices was also bleak during this phase, and thus, the traders were forced to lower their profit margins and simultaneously their price quotations. The traders also struggled to maintain the trading activities of methyl amine, but the subdued demand resulted in the downfall of the methyl amine price trend.

Analyst Insight

According to Procurement Resource, the price trend of Methyl Amine are expected to face northwards in the upcoming quarters as its demand from the end-user industries is inclining but the global inventories of Methyl amine are depleting.

Methylamine Price Trend for the First Half of 2023


The problem of oversupply and reduction in demand caused the price trend of methylamine to decline in the first quarter of 2023. In this quarter, the prices were also affected by the falling market of feedstock ammonia and the declining buying potential of consumers. Additionally, the second quarter also witnessed several disruptions in the pharmaceuticals market along with a reduction in the production rates.


The cleaning and surfactants industry drove the price trend of methylamine in the first quarter of 2023, but this trend was not followed in the second quarter as the prices declined significantly.

The trading activities of the region remained weak throughout the quarter, and with the high number of imports, the level of inventories rose. In addition to this, the estimated growth of oil and gas industries came out to be lower than expected, which ultimately led to a decline in consumer confidence and their purchasing tendency, which negatively impacted methylamine prices in Europe.

North America

The North American region mirrored the price trend observed in the European region. Methylamine prices surged in the first quarter with support from the surfactants industry, but the unreasonable hike in feedstock prices negatively impacted the prices of the commodity. In the second quarter, disruptions in supply chains and reluctance in the spending ability of consumers caused the prices of methylamine to decline.

Analyst Insight

According to Procurement Resource, the price of methylamine is estimated to follow a downward trajectory as the demand from downstream industries seems silent, and with the decline in consumer confidence, the price trend is expected to go southwards.
