In Q4 2023, the n propanol market in the United States experienced a downturn, characterized by a bearish price trend, and subdued demand. Prices were pressured by low procurement from end-user industries, with weakened activities in the manufacturing sectors impacting demand for cleaning agents and floor polishes. Despite improved feedstock availability and reduced production costs due to lower ethylene prices, sluggish orders from downstream personal care product manufacturers further depressed the market.

In Q4 2023, n propanol prices in China initially decreased due to high inventory levels and sluggish demand from sectors such as coatings and insecticides. Mid-quarter saw further price reductions influenced by enhanced ethylene availability and lower production costs driven by decreased naphtha and crude oil prices. However, towards the quarter's end, prices in China exhibited a modest recovery due to reduced production rates and moderate buying activities, contrasting with broader regional trends.

In Q4 2023, n-propanol prices in Europe experienced a downward trend due to sluggish consumption and diminished procurement activities.
