Polypropylene Glycol Price Trend for the First Half of 2023


The price trend of polypropylene glycol is majorly dependent upon the market dynamics of its feedstock, propylene glycol, whose prices fluctuated in the first and second quarters of 2023. In the first quarter, the cost of raw materials and natural gas remained low, but the demand from the pharmaceutical and cosmetics sector supported the growth of the polypropylene glycol price trend.

In the second quarter, the production activities slowed down, with a fall in the number of new orders and the purchasing appetite of buyers. The demand for polypropylene glycol in the domestic as well as international sectors also remained low, which eventually caused the price trend of polypropylene glycol to face southwards.


The cost of raw materials and continuously receding demand from the pharmaceutical and related industries were the major causes of the mixed trend shown by the polypropylene glycol prices. The supply chains of the region strengthened, but with subdued demand, it only resulted in high stocks of stockpiles of the product in the region. In the second quarter, there was a slight improvement in the polypropylene glycol sector in the month of May due to tight supply and improving market dynamics. However, in the other months, polypropylene glycol prices struggled with rising levels of inflation, interest rates, and the influx of cheap imports.

North America

As seen in the European and Asia-Pacific region, the cost of feedstock materials failed to provide the required support to the prices of polypropylene glycol in the North American region. The market for polypropylene glycol thus followed an oscillating trend. The demand from pharmaceutical and related industries inclined, keeping the price trend of polypropylene glycol afloat.

In the second quarter, the market activities and, in turn, the production rates of polypropylene glycol were not able to keep up with the strong demand. However, in the latter half, the spike in inflation and interest rates proved to be a challenge for the polypropylene glycol demand sector, and due to this, the price trend of polypropylene glycol followed a declining trajectory.
