Trichloroacetic Acid Price Trend

In North America, the acetic acid prices witnessed a continuous dip in the trend in Q4 2021 as a result of weak demand and adequate supplies. The prices were, however, on a higher side if compared with those in the previous quarters in the same year. Supply was restrained as the omicron cases surged which put an upward pressure on the prices. In US, the production of acetic acid started to recover slowly, but exports to Europe remained low and in limited quantities. The FOB Texas prices of the chemical in US was observed to be 1450 USD/MT whereas FOB Louisiana prices were around 1476 USD/MT. The final product, trichloroacetic acid, followed the pricing trend of its feedstock.
