Analyst Insight

According to Procurement Resource, the Toluenediamine price trend are likely to continue fluctuating in a similar manner in the upcoming months as well.

Toluenediamine Price Trend for the Second Half of 2022


In the Asian Pacific region, the prices of Toluenediamine fluctuated due to the sea-saw trend followed by the prices of feedstock toluene. The decline in the prices during the initial months of the third quarter was due to the dwindling operational costs and extreme weather conditions in the region.

The effects of the depreciating value of the currency and the slow economic growth further aided this price drop. In the fourth quarter, the crude oil prices were unstable along with the downstream demands from industries such as paints, coatings, etc., resulting in sluggish price trend for Toluenediamine.


A declining trend in the prices of Toluenediamine was persistent throughout the third and fourth quarters in the European region. The prices declined majorly due to rising inflation and weak demand from the end-user industries. The prices were also affected by the rise in inventory levels along with the falling crude oil prices. Due to the above-mentioned factors, consumer confidence in the market remained weak and the prices of Toluenediamine followed a downward trajectory.

North America

The prices fluctuated during the said period as the decreased demand from the downstream industries adversely affected the market. Low demand also raised the inventory levels and thus the supply and demand equilibrium of the market was disrupted. However, there was a slight improvement in the prices towards the end of the third quarter as the demand improved slightly and the production costs also declined due to the decline in natural gas costs. However, this trend was not followed in the fourth quarter and the prices nosedived.

Analyst Insight

According to Procurement Resource, the price trend for Toluenediamine are expected to follow a downward trajectory due to the weak demand from the end-sector industries, sluggish behaviour of the market, and uncertain crude oil prices.

Toluenediamine is collectively used to refer to all the ortho and para isomeric forms of toulenediamine with the same common formula. But, depending on the position of the -amino groups, the properties of the isomers change. 2,4-diaminotoluene (one of the isomeric forms) is produced by hydrogenating 2,4-dinitrotoluene using a nickel catalyst. Its reaction with the chemical compound benzene diazonium chloride gives the cationic azo dye Basic Orange 1.
