Phosgene Price Trend for the First Half of 2023


The market dynamics of phosgene were dependent on the trend of chlorine prices as it serves as a major feedstock in its production. In the first and second quarters of 2023, the price trend of feedstock products fell considerably as the level of inventories remained high while the demand from the downstream industries failed to support the market. In the second quarter, there were some signs of economic improvement in the Asia-Pacific region that helped pull the momentum of the phosgene price trend from the red zone, but the overseas demand and lower trading sentiments resulted in the decline in phosgene prices.

The European countries were challenged by the excess supply of phosgene feedstock materials. In addition to this, the trading activities and consumer preferences also shifted from phosgene, which hampered the growth of its price trend.

Due to the poor outlook of consumer confidence and lack of support from the cost of production, the prices of phosgene found it difficult to grow. Moreover, the economic scenario and sluggish movement of the construction sector ultimately resulted in the drop in the phosgene price trend.

North America

In North America, the consumption rates of consumers slumped significantly in the first two quarters of 2023 as compared to the previous quarters. Further, the phosgene market was under the pressure of excess stockpiles and poor demand.

The percentage of depreciation was much more noticeable in the second quarter as it reached almost double in digits. Further, the persistent economic challenges, rising interest, and inflation rates diminished the scope of phosgene price trend growth.
