Resorcinol Prices December 2023

Category Region Price
Resorcinol Petrochemicals India 5880 USD/MT

In Q4 of 2023, India registered an average price of 5880 USD/MT on Ex-Mumbai, reflecting a decrease of 1.00% compared to the preceding quarter. The decline was driven by the low demand across downstream industries along with a downturn in exports, which collectively resulted in a consolidation within the domestic market. Consequently, this led to an escalation in supply levels, exerting downward pressure on prices and indicating a response to the rapidly shifting market dynamics.

Product Description

Resorcinol refers to a white to light pink crystal compound with a distinctive fragrance that has the chemical formula C6H4(OH)2 . It is primarily manufactured through two processes: Benzene sulphonation which is achieved through the combination of benzene with sulphuric acid and meta-diisopropylbenzene peroxidation which is an oxidation of diisopropylbenzene. This is one of the most useful elements in terms of its chemical features.

Resorcinol is vigorously used in the manufacturing of rubber adhesives, which could remarkably improve the durability and heat resistance of rubber compounds for the automotive and tire industries. It is also utilized as an ultraviolet stabilizer in plastics which helps prevent the decomposition and loss of their mechanical strength from sun exposure.

Another application is in flame retardant synthesis which gives extra safety dimension to materials by lessening flammability. The resorcinol versatility and effectiveness in achieving product performance and safety efficiency indicate its importance and extend its application in different areas, portraying resorcinol as a significant chemical in most manufacturing processes.

Europe Resorcinol Price

In the last quarter of 2023, resorcinol prices in Europe fluctuated in the downward direction. In the beginning, the prices tended to rise gradually, mainly, due to the stable demand provided the manufacturers with the reason to advance their production capacities. However, as the quarter progressed, a combination of rising production costs and continuing high demand led to a significant depreciation in prices by the end of the period. This dynamic resulted in initially higher product prices, which subsequently declined.

North America Resorcinol Price

At the end of 4th quarter of 2023, there’s been a sharp decrease in resorcinol prices across North America that are now heading downwards. Prices turned out to be on a rather strong year-starting increase, which was mainly supported by an even demand of resorcinol that made a number of manufacturers launch their resorcinol productions on a larger scale. Contrary to the rising trend at the beginning, prices dropped sharply by the end of the quarter.
