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

For the First Half of 2022


Bio-Butanol is obtained from biomass such as corn, raw sugars, and wheat. The prices of these feedstocks amid the rising demand for biobased chemicals globally governed the price trend for Bio-Butanol. The ongoing geopolitical confrontation caused the food and feed prices to rise at abnormal levels.

The prices of the feedstock of corn remained strong throughout the first half of the said year, averaging 423.63 USD/MT. The price of wheat averaged 454.73 USD/MT in China and 291.14 USD/MT in India. Raw sugar prices also remained strong due to the robust demand from ethanol and biofuel industries. Hence, bio-butanol prices remained on the higher end of the scale throughout the first half of the said year.


Corn prices reached historic figures owing to the Russian invasion and adverse weather conditions. The economic pressure and the stagnant productivity levels caused the corn futures to increase by 30% in the European market while wheat surged by 27%. The corn prices averaged 307.79 USD/MT (Netherlands). These increased feedstocks prices kept the prices of bio-Butanol anchored in the market.

North America

The US domestic market exhibited the same price trends as the global outlook. The feedstock corn prices averaged 215.35 USD/MT, while wheat averaged 401 USD/MT.

Latin America

The prices of feedstock corn and wheat soared in the Latin American market due to the supply shortages caused by adverse climatic conditions. In Brazil, the feedstock corn price averaged 298 USD/MT while wheat averaged 419.54 USD/MT during the year's first half.

Production Processes

  • Production of Bio-Butanol from Biomass Feedstock via Fermentation

Simple sugars in bio-mass feedstock produce bio-butanol using the fermentation process, otherwise known as the Acetone Butanol Ethanol (ABE) process. Under anaerobic conditions, a microbial species, Clostridium acetobutylicum bacterium, is employed to create bio-butanol with ethanol and acetone as byproducts.


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