Texas, USA: The US Hydrobromic Acid market has showcased stability, with prices rising week after week this month. Demand for Hydrobromic Acid from downstream sectors such as food, pharmaceutical, agriculture, textile, and chemical industries surged in the region owing to rising domestic consumption and consumer expenditure.

Moreover, the upstream Bromine market positively supports the Hydrobromic Acid prices. With the improvement of business circumstances in the region, consumer demand for Bromine in the United States has increased. Bromine prices have stabilized, and the general market dynamics in the region have remained resilient. Furthermore, imports of pricey items from Israel and Jordan have helped to keep Bromine prices strong in the US market, thus supporting the Hydrobromic Acid market.

The preliminary estimate from the Bureau of Economic Analysis suggests that the GDP of the United States has seen an annualized growth of 4.9% in the Q3 of 2023. On the demand side, inquiries for Hydrobromic Acid from downstream sectors improved fairly in November.

The economy also received a boost from companies that increased their inventory, anticipating future sales. This contributed an additional 1.4 percentage points to the quarter's growth. An increase in spending and investment by governments at all levels - federal, state, and local- eventually contributed to third-quarter growth.

According to a Federal Reserve poll released, there is a broad economic downturn and more moderate employment market conditions. Despite this, the Fed's policy appears to be working as the economy approaches the ideal 2% inflation rate without entering a recession.

Additionally, the major manufacturer, Albemarle, reported a sales increase of 10% in the third quarter of 2023 amid an increase in domestic consumption of chemicals such as bromine, Hydrobromic Acid, and a few others and an improvement in the economy. However, the European chemicals sector is currently struggling as clients are unwilling to place new orders while long-term economic uncertainty keeps raw materials and energy costs high.

The firms have been forced to adopt cost-cutting measures, causing some firms to close manufacturing plants due to persistently low demand for their products, such as Hydrobromic Acid. Furthermore, the world's largest chemical business recorded a significant loss for the third quarter of this year, compared to last year's period, while revenue fell by 28%.

According to the ChemAnalyst pricing intelligence, the Hydrobromic Acid market is anticipated to demonstrate further rise in the fourth quarter of this year as domestic consumption improves and the country's economy continues to grow. According to industry experts, the predicted easing of inflationary pressure and strong customer demand will boost the Hydrobromic Acid market with higher export sales in Q4 2023.
