In a notable shift from the past five months, the prices of Dipotassium EDTA are poised for a significant surge in the Asia-Pacific (APAC) and US regions. This uptick is primarily attributed to a marked improvement in domestic and international demand. As India, a major player in the Dipotassium EDTA market, witnessed an increase in prices, mirroring the surge in raw material costs, the repercussions are anticipated to reverberate across the industry.

The driving force behind the escalating prices is the surge in raw material costs, particularly the increase in the prices of EDTA in the Indian market. This surge directly translates into elevated production costs for Dipotassium EDTA, thereby necessitating an adjustment in market prices.

In India, November saw a substantial uptick in demand for Dipotassium EDTA, fueled by inflationary pressures. However, the Consumer Price Index (CPI) witnessed a welcome decline from October's 7% to 6.3%, contributing to improved investor sentiment. This drop in CPI raised expectations of lower interest rates, further enhancing Dipotassium EDTA market optimism. The approaching festive season, encompassing Diwali and Christmas, traditionally stimulates increased consumer spending, benefitting sectors like retail, consumer durables, and hospitality. This festive anticipation likely fueled investor interest in these sectors.

Additionally, exports were projected to witness a 10% growth in November 2023, driven by robust demand for Indian goods from major trading partners such as the United States, China, and Europe. Government initiatives, including the Merchandise Exports from India Scheme (MEIS) and the Export Promotion Capital Goods (EPCG) scheme, were expected to bolster this export growth.

The United States, being a major importer of Dipotassium EDTA from the Indian market, mirrored the ascending trajectory. Downstream panel factories engaged in procurement activities for Dipotassium EDTA experienced heightened bids and offers among enterprises, shaping the current market dynamics.

However, the surge in demand and subsequent supply chain pressures are not isolated phenomena. The restrictions imposed on Panama Canal transit since November 1 have begun to impact containerships and delayed shipping for Dipotassium EDTA, leading to an increasing number of vessels experiencing delays. The implemented limits on vessel transits are expected to reduce the daily transit limit from 32 to 18 for all types of vessels by February next year. This bottleneck in transit is likely to exacerbate delays over the next two months, impacting the timely delivery of goods, including Dipotassium EDTA.

According to ChemAnalyst, the price of Dipotassium EDTA is expected to rise in the United States due to increasing prices in exporting countries. Additionally, the elevated prices of EDTA are anticipated to contribute to the market's overall strength.
