Sodium Bromide Prices December 2023

Category Region Price
Sodium Bromide Specialty Chemical India 1700 USD/MT
Sodium Bromide Specialty Chemical Netherlands 1575 USD/MT

The last quarter of 2023 showed a small drop in the cost of sodium bromide in the Indian market as compared with prices registered in the third quarter. This price of this quarter surpasses the last quarter of 1700 USD/MT CFR (JNPT Mumbai). This is a decrease from the previous quarter, which depicts the bearish tendency of sodium bromide in India during this period.

In Q4 2023 the Netherlands, one of the big players in the sodium bromide market in the European Union, faced a price drop due to the difficulties in the industry. The sodium bromide price dropped by 6% in Q2 2023 compared to Q1, with another 5% fall happening in the middle of the quarter. This decline is due to weak demand, increased production costs, and the low sentiment of the market in the region. The last quarter finished the Sodium Bromide price of 1575 USD/MT FD Rotterdam in the Netherlands.

Product Description

Sodium Bromide (NaBr) is an inorganic compound that is usually utilized as a source of the bromide ion. This is a white, crystalline solid that is water soluble and widely applicable in different industries due to its properties. The main production process is the reaction of NaOH with Br2 which gives a simple and productive reaction. Sodium bromide exists mainly in two forms: it exists in two forms: the anhydrous and dihydrate form with the former being more popular commercially.

Sodium bromide becomes significant in different applications. It asserts itself as the finishing and workover fluid in oil wells, ensuring the drilling process by maintaining the wellbore. Furthermore, it is used as a raw material in making of fire retardants because of its ability to extinguish the flammability of different things.

The advantages of sodium bromide are that it can act as a multi-purpose brominating reagent, in a range of organic and organometallic reactions, and supply of stable bromide ions. Besides, this substance is also applied in the photo processes which is used in film development to create silver bromide for the formation of photographic images. Its use in water treatment, particularly in spas and hot tubs, as a bactericide and algaecide highlights its versatility and effectiveness.
