Sulfur Hexafluoride Price Trend for First Half of 2023


In the production of sulfur hexafluoride, sulfur acts as the main feedstock material, and thus, the price trend of sulfur hexafluoride is mostly dependent on it. The market activities of feedstock remained bearish in the first and second quarters of 2023 due to low rates of procurement from the end-user sector. Along with this, the trading sentiments and overall consumption of buyers were also hurt by fluctuating market sentiments, resulting in a decline in the price trend of sulfur hexafluoride.

In the first two quarters of 2023, the price trend of sulfur hexafluoride suffered from the low interest of buyers in the feedstock market. The oil and petroleum industries also witnessed a downward trajectory that eventually hampered the growth of sulfur hexafluoride prices. In addition to this, oscillations in the freight charges, high level of inventories, and downfall in trading activities also played their role in keeping the sulfur hexafluoride prices in the negative zone.

North America

The North American market of sulfur hexafluoride was highly affected by the low consumption rates of downstream industries and unclear economic conditions of the region. In addition to this, the feedstock prices also suffered from the adverse crisis being faced by the fertilizer and agricultural industries. Amid plunging economic conditions, investors were also reluctant to invest in this sector long-term, and thus, due to sliding market sentiments in North America, the price trend of sulfur hexafluoride declined.

Analyst Insight

According to Procurement Resource, the price trend of Sulfur Hexafluoride is estimated to follow a declining trend as the cost support from the feedstock market seems feeble, and rising economic uncertainties will also hamper the growth of sulfur hexafluoride prices.

Sulfur hexafluoride is an inorganic compound that is colourless, odourless, non-flammable, and non-toxic. It is a powerful greenhouse gas that also serves as an excellent electrical insulator. Sulfur hexafluoride has an octahedral geometry composed of six fluorine atoms connected to a central sulphur atom. It is a molecule with a high valency. Because it is a nonpolar gas, it is poorly miscible in water but extremely miscible in nonpolar organic solvents.
