Propanol Price Trend for the of 2022


The economic downturn which resulted in the aftermath of the Russian invasion of Ukraine caused unprecedented inflation in the fragile economies. The prices of crude oil soared due to the absence of precious cargo from the Black Sea and port congestions. Owing to the high feedstock prices, power costs and supply shortages amid robust downstream demand, the prices of petrochemicals and thus propanol soared throughout the Asian market. The price of propanol averaged 1579 USD/MT ex-Delhi during the first quarter.

With the manufacturers not being able to sustain high input costs due to the low running rates and covid restrictions; passed the high prices to the consumers. However, these high prices proved detrimental to the market demand as the buyers baulked citing uncertain supply disruptions. The price trends for propanol peaked during May but then soon began to tumble because of demand destruction. In the Chinese domestic market, the prices peaked in May averaging 8693 RMB/MT and then stabilized averaging 8242 RMB/MT in June 2022.


The European region faced the direct consequences of the Russia-Ukraine conflict. The conflict triggered an acute energy crisis due to surging crude oil prices which reverberated across all sectors. The price of propanol averaged 2000 USD/MT FOB Rotterdam because of the solid demand from pharmaceutical and solvent extraction industries. The prices surged to an all-time high in the second quarter with the European embargo on Russian oil and western sanctions against SWIFT transactions from Russia.

North America

The US domestic market was not immune to the surging energy and transportation costs. The robust downstream demand amid labour shortages further caused the price trends for propanol to inflate. The price of propanol averaged 1475 USD/MT during the first few months of the said period. Despite the market volatility and supply uncertainty the propanol prices continued to rise.
