Sorbic Acid prices are expected to increase globally throughout the first quarter of 2023. Rising inquiries, manufacturing costs, and energy prices are likely to boost the market sentiments for Sorbic Acid this quarter.

As COVID-19 instances increased earlier in the last quarter, Sorbic Acid prices in China fell significantly. This significantly impacted manufacturing as a whole and inquiries from the global market because traders reduced their quotations. However, as 2023 approaches, the price of Sorbic Acid exhibits an elevated tendency over the first half of Q1-2023. The second-largest economy in the world recently reopened its borders and eased COVID-19 limits in response to protests last year, which may have fuelled consumer interest. Market experts also noted that recent Chinese imports of oil and an increase in Supply activities may have contributed to this. The overall demand dynamics for all commodities, including Sorbic Acid, are projected to improve in China.

Traders from the international market are actively looking to build up their stocks before the market shutdown in China due to the upcoming Lunar New Year Holiday. Because of this, the manufacturers in China are expected to raise their production capacity for Sorbic Acid in the hope of strong inquiries from end-user Pharmaceutical, Healthcare, and Food & Beverage sectors.

Early in January 2023, there will be a significant break in the clouds in the United States as the Consumer Price Index (CPI) increased by only 6.5% around the end of December, as opposed to 7.1% in November 2022. With the ease in client requirements and this slight decrease in prices of downstream end-products, there is a greater likelihood that inflation will reverse, which might support the overall good market trend for pharmaceutical and other industries, including its end-products such as Sorbic Acid. It is anticipated that strong business investment in the United States will almost completely restore pre-pandemic trends in overall demand.

Similarly, during January 2023, Europe, particularly Germany, is projected to follow a similar trajectory for Sorbic Acid. The market for Sorbic Acid in Germany is projected to benefit from the depreciation of currencies in the European region and a reduction in inflation globally in the upcoming months. In addition, a rise in European merchants' quotations is expected to increase imports from Asian nations like China, a big exporter.

As per the ChemAnalyst, "the values of Sorbic Acid are majorly expected to surge globally in the coming months due to increase in its downstream demand. In addition, Market Participants look forward to raising their stock level to prevent further shortages and meet the surging inquiries."
