2-Propylheptanol Price Trend and Forecast

Regional Price Overview

Get the latest insights on price movement and trend analysis of 2-Propylheptanol in different regions across the world (Asia, Europe, North America, Latin America, and the Middle East & Africa

For the First Half of 2022


2-Propylheptanol is obtained via the hydroformylation of alkenes or linear alpha olefins (LAO), which are, in turn, obtained from crude oil. Due to the Russian invasion of Ukraine, oil and natural gas prices soared dramatically, causing the alkenes' prices to inflate. However, during the second quarter, the high upstream costs took a toll on the market dynamics, and the prices suffered amid demand destruction. The price 2-Propylheptanol averaged  1856.42 USD/MT in the Indian domestic arena during the first half of 2022


The European embargo on Russian oil raised the energy bills of Europe drastically. The higher costs of keeping the refineries running at a constant pace, along with supply shortages and the robust downstream demand, caused the prices to increase. However, this runaway inflation soon led to demand destruction, and the petrochemical industry suffered. The cost of alkenes averaged 1619 USD/MT FD Germany in the second quarter.

North America

In line with the global outlook, the price of linear alpha olefins averaged 790 USD/MT and 850 USD/MT for C-10 and C16-18 systems, respectively, in the first quarter. However, the demand destructions and the heightened costs of natural gas caused the prices to dip in the second quarter, thereby weakening the price trends of 2-Propylheptanol.

Production Processes

  • Production of 2-Propylheptanol from C4 alkenes via Hydroformylation/Oxo Synthesis

Oxo synthesis is used in the production of aldehydes from an alkene. This reaction involves adding a formyl group (CHO ) and a hydrogen atom to the carbon-carbon double bond. This reaction is carried at elevated temperature and pressure. The product aldehyde is then hydrogenated to get the corresponding alcohol.


The displayed pricing data is derived through weighted average purchase price, including contract and spot transactions at the specified locations unless otherwise stated.
