The major factor that influenced this decline was the weak demand from the downstream industries, leading to a significant rise in the level of inventories. This low demand and high availability of sodium cyanide widened the supply-demand gap and, thus, negatively impacted the price trend of sodium cyanide.


The cost of feedstock materials fell consistently in the first and second quarters of 2023 due to the significant decline in prices of natural gas. In addition to this, low demand from downstream industries, restricted supply from Russia, and excess availability of the materials in the region affected the price trend of sodium cyanide throughout this phase. Overall, the market dynamics of sodium cyanide were also challenged by the negligible number of offtakes from domestic and international buyers, and as a result, the price trend of sodium cyanide declined in the European market.

North America

In North America, the price trend of sodium cyanide was majorly affected by the short demand for feedstock materials and rising levels of inventories in the first and second quarters of 2023. The decline in the prices was much more prominent in the second quarter.

The diminished level of inquiries, low consumption of consumers, and weak movement of its derivatives proved to be some major challenges in the region. In addition to this, the rate of exports to other North American countries also declined as the sea levels were not favorable, and thus, the price trend of sodium cyanide went southwards.

Sodium cyanide is an inorganic compound that has a white appearance and is a water-soluble solid. Because of the chemical's high affinity for metals, this salt is extremely toxic. Its primary applications include gold mining, which takes advantage of its high reactivity to metals. It has a moderately strong foundation. When exposed to acid, it can produce the toxic gas hydrogen cyanide.
