Triethanolamine Price Trend for the First Half of 2023


In the initial months of the first quarter of 2023, the price trend of triethanolamine dipped due to the weak support from the feedstock materials and declining demand from the downstream industries. But in the subsequent months, the demand and overall market sentiments of the triethanolamine sector improved, giving the required push to the triethanolamine price trend.

In the second quarter, the downstream industries, such as cosmetics and automotive sectors, increased their number of orders and thus drove the price trend of triethanolamine in an upward trajectory. However, the trading activities saw a delay that slightly depleted the availability of the product in the market.


In Europe, the price trend of triethanolamine declined steeply in the first quarter as the domestic downstream industries continued to showcase low demand amid a high supply of the product in the region. In addition to this, in the second quarter, the falling prices of feedstock materials, weak economic conditions, and strong supply of triethanolamine adversely affected triethanolamine prices and ultimately caused the price trend of triethanolamine to slump.

North America

In North America, the price trend of triethanolamine suffered from muted demand from domestic and international buyers. Along with this, the cost of feedstocks also failed to support the triethanolamine market. Additionally, a high number of cheap imports from Asian nations and strong supply led to the problem of oversupply amid the falling North American economy, which eventually caused the price trend of triethanolamine to fall.
