Hexene Price Trend and Forecast

Regional Price Overview

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

For the First Half of 2022


The raised crude oil and natural gas prices during the first quarter directly influenced the petrochemical prices. The increased upstream operating costs, port congestions, and supply shortages cause the prices of Hexene to inflate throughout the Asia-pacific region. During the first quarter, hexene prices averaged between 3300 USD/MT to 3140 USD/MT. In the second quarter, crude oil prices fell due to the global demand stability and supply enhancement; hence, hexene prices stabilized and plateaued.


The hexene prices initially soared due to the high crude oil prices and robust demand from the polyolefins market. The hexene prices averaged 3940 USD/MT during the first quarter. However, with the relaxation in the upstream operating costs and muted demand from the downstream LLDPE industry, hexene prices declined to an average of 3385 USD/MT in the second quarter.

North America

During the year's first half, the US domestic market registered an oscillating price trend for Hexene. Initially, the prices rose owing to the high upstream operating costs averaging 3595 USD/MT; however, the prices declined during the second quarter due to the muted market sentiments and the looming speculations of a global recession.
