Sodium Tetraborate Price Trend for the First Half of 2023


In Aisa, the price trend of sodium tetraborate gradually fell as the declining demand from the construction industry negatively impacted the market dynamics of sodium tetraborate in the first quarter of 2023. In addition to this, the supply sector remained strong, which increased the availability of the product in the region, and adversely impacted the demand.

In the second quarter, prices of sodium tetraborate inclined slightly in the first month but could not sustain throughout the quarter. The prices were majorly affected by the fall in the market dynamics of end-user industries. A decrease in the number of inquiries and a rise in stockpiles further pushed sodium tetraborate prices towards the negative side.


The sodium tetraborate market showcased a mixed trajectory in the first quarter of 2023. The prices rose in the initial phase and then declined gradually in the subsequent months. The first quarter prices were supported by the improvement in inquiries from the building and detergent industries and a steady supply of the product that did not let the level of inventories rise beyond demand.

A similar trajectory was seen in the second quarter. In this phase, the trend continued the trajectory of the last quarter in the first two months but then inclined at the end-quarter phase. The fall in market dynamics of sodium tetraborate was due to the subdued demand and increasing pressure on manufacturers due to the hike in interest and inflation rates. Consumer confidence thus declined in this sector, which directly impacted the economy of Europe.

North America

The price trend of sodium tetraborate in North America stabilized in the month of March after a gradual decline in previous months. In March, the industrial sector gained momentum, which eventually led to a rise in the construction and detergent industries. But the economic activities of the North American region took a toll at the end phase of the second quarter. The slowdown of demand from construction, agriculture, laundry, and other related industries adversely affected the price trend of sodium tetraborate and thus caused the prices of sodium tetraborate to decline.

Production Processes

At specific pressure and temperature of around 90-100°C, the aqueous solution of soda is poured into boric acid. After the completion of reaction, the insoluble part settles down and the rest of the solution is filtered out. This filtered part is then processed and cooled to give crystals in a crystallizer to obtain the final product.


The displayed pricing data is derived through weighted average purchase price, including contract and spot transactions at the specified locations unless otherwise stated.
