Monochloroacetic Acid Prices December 2023

Category Region Price
Monochloroacetic Acid Specialty Chemical USA 1274 USD/MT
Monochloroacetic Acid Specialty Chemical China 557 USD/MT
Monochloroacetic Acid Specialty Chemical Germany 1036 USD/MT

In the last quarter of 2023, prices of MCAA in the U.S. market dropped, primarily because of reduced feedstock material costs, e.g. Acetic acid and Acetic anhydride. This lowering of cost associated with production led to the bearish market sentiments for monochloroacetic acid. Subsequently, the monochloroacetic acid FOB Houston was settled at 1274 USD/MT during December 2023.

At the close of Q4 2023, China's monochloroacetic acid market faced increasing supply and declining costs amidst weak demand. Limited cost pressures from feedstock Acetic acid kept prices low, contributing to a downtrend in the domestic market. Demand from the agrochemical and surfactant sectors remained low due to an off-season slowdown, nurturing bearish sentiments among manufacturers. Overseas demand was also weak, and end-of-year destocking led manufacturers to keep prices competitive. As a result, monochloroacetic acid FOB Qingdao prices settled at 557 USD/MT in December 2023.

In Q4 2023, Germany's energy-intensive sectors stagnated, leading to reduced monochloroacetic acid production costs due to lower TTF Natural Gas prices and mild winter effects. Demand from agrochemical and surfactant industries remained low, with the German manufacturing PMI indicating a continued economic slowdown. Consequently, monochloroacetic acid FOB Hamburg prices settled at 1036 USD/MT in December 2023.

Product Description

Monochloroacetic acid (MCA) is a white crystalline compound with a very distinctive smell that is widely applied as a key intermediate organic synthesis reagent. It is mainly produced by the chlorination of acetic acid in the red phosphorus presence. This gives the chlorine atom the substitution for the hydrogen atom in acetic acid.

The MCA is valued for its versatility and efficiency in catalyzing reactions in organic synthesis that are widely applied in various industries. The advantages of using MCA include its efficiency for synthesizing more complex chemicals and its ability to improve the characteristics of products (e.g., improving the thickening and flow properties of cosmetics and detergents).

Its uses are manifold, starting from the production of thickening substances, stabilizers, and herbicides to being a vital ingredient in the drug industry for the manufacture of vitamins and other active compounds.

Europe Monochloroacetic Acid Price

In Q4 2023, due to a decrease in the cost of raw materials and low demand, monochloroacetic acid prices in the European market moved in the downward direction. The drop in the prices of feedstock like acetic acid and acetic anhydride resulted in the reduction in the output cost of monochloroacetic acid nationally thus creating a downward force in the market prices of the product.

North America Monochloroacetic Acid Price

In Q4 2023, Monochloroacetic acid (MCA) prices in the North American market continued to decline due to several contributing factors. Among other things, the prices for the main feedstocks of acetic acid and acetic anhydride considerably decreased due to the reduction of production costs of MCA on the local market. The price decrease in input costs has led to the popularity of bearish views against the MCA price index. On the other hand, the demand from the agrochemicals and Industrial surfactant industry has been poor. The period and season effect resulted in this decline, with fewer sales in the winter and less income earned at year-end. The downstream manufacturers also held back on replenishing their stocks as a result of the market contraction in this period which declined the demand for MCA. This mixture of factors is a major reason for the fall in prices of MCA as we move to the last quarter of the year.
