Hamburg, Germany- The price of Methyl Formate for April 2023 remained bullish despite a decline in the markets for feedstock Methanol worldwide. The downstream enterprises remain strong with an increase in spot trading operations due to a spike in demand from the consumer's end.

In the European market, Methyl Formate benchmark prices indicated a rising trend due to optimistic trading activity and the quick depletion of product stockpiles, which also provided manufacturers with a chance to raise the price trend. Due to increased consumer demand, Methyl Formate exports from Germany and the United Kingdom to other European regions ended on a higher note with healthy trading fundamentals.

The Downstream Formic Acid derivative sector remains healthy this month in the European market with an uptick in consumption of Methyl Formate. Regional suppliers and traders surged the prices amid strong purchasing requirements, and retailers purchased the product in bulk. In Germany, the Methyl Formate price during April 2023 surged to USD 1793/ton FOB Hamburg.

In the USA, the Methyl Formate market elevated in April 2023 along with high purchasing activities and brisk product imports from Germany and China to the US coast. During April 2023, the Methyl Formate price surged to USD 2168/ton CFR Texas. The regional market for Methyl Formate is on an uptrend, supported by a protracted product scarcity with hampered import activity. Along with increased buying activities and high contract prices, sentiment for downstream derivatives of Formic Acid has also increased.

According to ChemAnalyst, the Methyl Formate price in the global market is anticipated to grow further in May 2023 in the wake of strong contract price discussions and low product inventories among the enterprises. It is expected that the downstream Formic Acid derivative receive rollovers or increases from the local producers for May 2023. The trading activities in Germany and USA are expected to improve in the forthcoming month, along with the expected increase in sales and revenue among the downstream derivative venture.
