Titanium Butoxide Price Trend for the First Half of 2023
The price trend of titanium butoxide in the first and second quarters of 2023 was majorly affected by the fluctuations in its feedstock materials, such as titanium tetrachloride and butanol. The cost of these feedstock materials was weak due to the fall in demand from downstream industries such as paints and coatings. In addition to this, the low availability of labor and transportation and logistical challenges in the region further negatively affected the price trend of titanium butoxide.
In the second quarter, the number of inquiries from overseas markets was under the pressure of inflation while the cost of energy gradually declined. Hence, with the subdued demand and hike in interest and inflation rates, the price trend of titanium butoxide dipped in the Asia-Pacific market.
The cost of feedstock materials of titanium butoxide moved southwards in the first and second quarters of 2023 as the stocked-up inventories and feeble demand from the downstream industries affected the price trend negatively. In addition to this, the government adopted strict monetary policies to keep the market conditions afloat.
In the second quarter, the trend moved upward slightly as the availability of titanium butoxide was low, but soon, the production rates caught up with the market requirements. However, the demand from the downstream industries did not show any signs of improvement, and the cost of energy production also fluctuated throughout the quarter, which resulted in a decline in the prices of titanium butoxide.
In North America, the price trend of titanium butoxide oscillated in the first quarter due to low procurement from the downstream industries, high inflation, and strict monetary policies. The downstream products showcased the feeble movement of the market that caused the level of inventories to shoot up. In the second quarter, the price trend of titanium butoxide continued to be in the negative zone as the ample availability of stocks and feeble demand adversely affected titanium butoxide prices.
According to Procurement Resource, the price trend of Titanium Butoxide is estimated to depict a southwards trajectory as the demand from the downstream construction and paints industry is weak.
Titanium Butoxide Price Trend for the Second Half of 2022
Titanium metal derivatives such as titanium butoxide, titanium dioxide, etc., followed a downward trajectory in the third quarter of 2022. In the Asian Pacific region, considering the covid mandated restrictions the manufacturing activities of the region were severely affected. The region also witnessed the problem of oversupply and disruptions in the supply-demand dynamics.
The declining trend in the European region was due to the steep incline in energy production costs fueled by the summer heat waves. The North American region was also not much favourable towards the titanium butoxide prices as crude oil crises were not only limited to the European region. In the region, the demand from the regional market and the availability of cheaper imports from the Asian region plummeted the price trends for titanium butoxide.
In the fourth quarter, the prices mirrored the trend observed in the third quarter. The weak demands from downstream coatings & paints industries, natural and crude gas crises, and reduced offtakes caused the decline in the prices of titanium butoxide.
According to Procurement Resource, the price trends for Titanium Butoxide are expected to fluctuate in the upcoming quarter. This will majorly be due to uncertain market dynamics, power rationing norms, rising inflation, and oscillating demand from the end-user industries.
Titanium Butoxide Price Trend For the First Half of 2022
With the current economic downturn, the prices of metals like titanium and its derivatives soared globally. With the raised feedstock prices due to the supply shortages, high production cuts, covid restrictions and emphasis on certificates of origin the prices of titanium derivatives such as titanium butoxide rose constantly. The prices of feedstock butanol averaged 2870 USD/MT in Europe while in the US it averaged 2680 USD/MT.
The prices of titanium peaked in May averaging 19.28 USD/kg. The budding demand from the paints, coating and construction industries further supported the high price trends for Titanium butoxide. However, the prices stabilized towards the end of the said period due to reduced market sentiments amid the increased speculation about recession.
