Propionic Acid Price Trend- Q4 2023

The market growth of Propionic Acid is primarily driven by its increasing utilization across diverse industries, including food preservation, agriculture, and pharmaceuticals, where it serves as a mold inhibitor, pesticide, and preservative. The expansion of the global food and beverage industry, particularly within the processed and packaged food sectors, significantly boosts demand for Propionic Acid as a food preservative due to its efficacy in extending shelf life and preventing mold growth in baked goods and cheese. Additionally, the agricultural sector contributes to the demand surge as Propionic Acid is used in grain preservation and as an additive in animal feed to prevent food spoilage, thereby improving feed efficiency and animal health. The growing awareness of feed quality and animal nutrition underscores its importance in this sector. Moreover, the pharmaceutical industry utilizes Propionic Acid in the production of various drugs and as an excipient, fostering further market expansion. Technological advancements in manufacturing processes have enhanced the efficiency and cost-effectiveness of Propionic Acid production, making it more accessible for widespread industrial applications. Market growth is also supported by regulatory approvals that recognize Propionic Acid as a safe compound for various uses, encouraging its adoption. However, market expansion is tempered by the availability of substitutes and fluctuating raw material prices, which pose challenges to sustained growth.


Propionic Acid Market Analysis

The global propionic acid market size reached US$ 1.8 Billion in 2023. By 2032, IMARC Group expects the market to reach US$ 2.3 Billion, at a projected CAGR of 2.70% during 2023-2032. In the first quarter of 2024, the global market for propionic acid experienced significant fluctuations due to a combination of supply chain disruptions, variable demand across regions, and volatile feedstock prices. One of the primary factors affecting the price of propionic acid was the shutdown of several key manufacturing plants, both scheduled and unscheduled. In North America, particularly the United States, propionic acid prices exhibited a bullish trend in the early months, driven by elevated demand from the food industry, which relies heavily on propionic acid for preservatives and flavorings. This surge was further exacerbated by rising feedstock ethylene prices, itself a consequence of global plant shutdowns including significant production halts in China during the Lunar New Year celebrations. These shutdowns curtailed global supply chains, contributing to price increases. Moreover, extreme weather conditions, notably a severe winter storm, led to additional facility shutdowns and logistical challenges within North America, compounding the scarcity of propionic acid and disrupting power supplies critical for production.


Towards the end of the quarter, however, the market dynamics shifted markedly. Prices began to decline due to an oversupply situation as production normalized faster than demand could recover. In the APAC region, especially India, the initial stable pricing environment due to adequate stockpiles and steady demand began to falter as demand from the food and beverage sector weakened. The anticipation of reduced procurement activities towards the quarter’s end also played a significant role, leading to price corrections. This decline was mirrored in Europe, where, despite early bullish trends due to strong demand and similar supply disruptions caused by adverse weather and feedstock issues, prices fell in March. The downturn was facilitated by an oversupply in the market and diminished costs of feedstock ethylene, highlighting the cyclical nature of commodity chemicals like propionic acid where supply-demand imbalances can swiftly alter the pricing landscape. These regional trends underscore the complex interplay between supply chain logistics, feedstock availability, manufacturing disruptions, and sector-specific demand in shaping the global market for propionic acid.
