Octene Price Trend for the First Half of 2022


The crude oil and natural gas prices soared throughout the world owing to the continuing Russian invasion of Ukraine. The price upstream operating costs affected the petrochemical industry thereby causing the prices of linear alpha olefins to increase i.e., octene prices soared throughout the Asian market. The trade bottlenecks, port congestions, covid restrictions, and raised freight led to the phenomenon of demand destruction in the Asian domestic arena and thus, the price trends of octene suffered towards the end of said period. The price of C 10 linear alpha olefins averaged 940.81 USD/MT in India.


The European region closely mimicked the price trends for octene recorded in the Asian arena. The prices soared during the first 4/5 months owing to the supply side constraints, high feedstock prices and trade restrictions and robust downstream demand. The price of C 10 LAO averaged 2263 USD/MT during the first quarter. The prices relaxed towards the end of said period averaging 1619 USD/MT as the upstream operating costs relaxed.

North America

Owing to the robust demand from downstream plasticizers, polymers and chemical industries amid the raised feedstock costs the prices of octene surged throughout the US domestic market. The C10 Linear Alpha Olefins averaged 790 USD/MT on a FOB basis during the first quarter. However, it soon stabilized and plateaued towards the end of the second quarter due to the muted market sentiment and ample inventories as the trade restrictions relaxed.
