Sodium Monochloro Acetate (SMCA) Price Trend for the First Half of 2022


The price of feedstock monochloroacetic acid and caustic soda surged throughout China during the first quarter. The soaring crude oil prices, reduced operating rates, lowered inventories, and raised feedstock costs caused the prices of SCMA to surge rapidly. The robust demand from the downstream sectors coupled with low production volumes caused the price trends of SCMA to incline.

The feedstock monochloroacetic acid price averaged 1443 USD/MT in the Chinese domestic market. With high-cost inflation and expensive trade logistics, the market demand started dwindling. The baulking of buyers amid the looming threat of recession negatively impacted the prices of feedstocks. The prices of monochloroacetic acid averaged 995 USD/MT while that of caustic soda averaged 1208.1 RMB/MT during the end of said period.


The prices of sodium monochloroacetate ( SMCA) fluctuated across the European region during the said period. Initially despite the rising operating costs and supply disruptions from the Black Sea and Baltic Sea the costs of feedstock monochloroacetic acid kept stable owing to low demands from downstream.

However, with high-cost inflation and renewed demands the producers raised the quotations for SCMA to maintain profitability.  The price of monochloroacetic acid averaged 2020 USD/MT. These inflated feedstock prices kept the price trends of SMCA anchored in the European market.

North America

The prices for SCMA kept firm throughout the US domestic market. The raised feedstock quotation coupled with high energy costs, complex logistics and labour shortages amid budding downstream demand cause the SMCA prices to surge consistently. The price of monochloroacetic acid averaged 1990 USD/MT while that of caustic soda averaged 810 USD/MT FOB US Gulf.

Sodium Monochloro Acetate is a powdered white coloured solid. It is water soluble.  It is used to synthesize drugs, colours, and herbicides. SMCA is used in the production of a number of beneficial substances, including medicines, dyes, agrochemicals, and thickening agents. The strong reactivity of the product's C-Cl bond is utilised in the majority of reactions.

It is widely utilised as a thickening agent in detergents, oil drilling, paper, food, and pharmaceutical applications; in the production of agrochemicals like insecticides (such as dimethoates) and herbicides (such as 2,4-D and MCPA); and as a starting point for betaines. The creation of vitamins, artificial caffeine, malonates, and glycine are further applications.
