USA: According to the ChemAnalyst data, the price of Potassium Benzoate in the domestic US market is anticipated to decline from the second half of December. Falling prices of feedstock Benzoic Acid, the main component of Potassium Benzoate, as well as other factors including the significant number of inventories with the domestic merchants, will all contribute to the downward price trend in the US.

Furthermore, partial Toluene oxidation is being produced for the local market for Benzoic Acid. Due to low domestic Toluene demand and the weak crude oil trend, the Toluene oxidation process in the domestic benzoic acid market is currently experiencing significant losses. There was little market discussion, and the industry was pessimistic about the future market, which led to a further decline in price. Major oil-producing nations have chosen to retain the existing production reduction objective in the upstream sector, which has resulted in a reasonably stable oil price.

One of the major reasons driving the market for Potassium Benzoate is due to its ability to stop the growth of mold, yeast, and bacteria as a preservative, which is being catalyzed by the expanding world population. Leading market competitors are additionally concentrating on product breakthroughs and tactical alliances to increase their product range and market reach. Despite this, there is a drop in demand in the US food and beverage sectors because domestic companies have enough Potassium Benzoate on hand and require fewer imports from China. The product's price decline has also been assisted by the variation in the price of crude oil.

The price trajectory of Potassium Benzoate is anticipated to follow the downward trajectory due to a dip in demand from end-use sectors, according to ChemAnalyst. The product's large supply, low demand, and declining raw material costs will all contribute to the price decline in the United States.
