Trimethylolpropane Price Trend for the Second Half of 2022


The price trend for trimethylolpropane were majorly affected by its feedstock materials, butanal, and formaldehyde. The formaldehyde market declined in the third quarter of 2022 as the demand from the domestic sector declined.

The price trend was also stable in the initial months of the fourth quarter and then declined in the later months. The decreased demand and rise in inventories negatively impacted the market, declining the price trend for trimethylolpropane.


The feedstock prices in the European region for trimethylolpropane saw a weak demand from the end-sector industries and a rise in inventories. Weak economic conditions and low confidence of buyers due to the doom of recession further impacted the price trend of trimethylolpropane negatively. The unstable trading activities and increased production costs also fueled the declining price trend for trimethylolpropane.

Production Processes

  • Production of Trimethylolpropane from formaldehyde

This method is usually carried out in two steps. Firstly, the condensation of butanal with formaldehyde followed by the Cannizzaro reaction – a base-induced disproportionation of two molecules of a non-enolizable aldehyde to give the required product, i.e., Trimethylolpropane.
