Undecanoyl Chloride Market: an Overview
Undecanoyl chloride is a niche chemical with limited applications across the manufacturing industry. Prominent applications of Undecanoyl chloride are organic synthesis, pharmaceutical manufacturing among others. Key chemicals manufactured utilizing undecanoyl chloride is chrysotrione B, 2-acylcyclopentene-1,3-dione derivatives, 2-methylpentadecan-5-one, 4-ketotetradecanoic acid manufacturing. Chemicals produced from undecanoyl chloride are extensively utilized in manufacturing drugs which has effectively generated absolute dollar opportunity for API manufacturers. Market bubble of the pharmaceutical industry has doubled over the past decade and is set to grow at a much faster pace over the assessed forecast period.
Growth in pharmaceutical industry has created a domino effect towards undecanoyl chloride market. Key countable consumers of undecanoyl chloride in API research and synthesis are Novartis AG, PD-Rx Pharmaceuticals, Cadila Pharmaceuticals, Alembic Pharmaceuticals are the prominent users of undecanoyl chloride. Apart from its extensive utilization in API production, undecanoyl chloride is used to manufacture specialty chemicals which are then utilized in dyes and specialty chemicals manufacturing. Growth of undecanoyl chloride market could largely be attributed to the rise in chemical manufacturing across the regions.
Furthermore, over analyzing the product economics, absence of substitutes for the undecanoyl chloride has restricted the rapid price fluctuations in the market. Disruption of trade balance of the product is set to have little to no effect on the price of the product owing to the downside of price elasticity of demand and control of supply across the regions. Limited manufacturers of and growing consumers of undecanoyl chloride is set to provide a major challenge over the price rise by a fraction of the unit product cost.
Demand Surge from Pharmaceutical Grade Undecanoyl Chloride is set to drive the Market
Trade flows of the market could largely be tracked under two grades, industry and pharmaceutical grade. Pharmaceutical grade undecanoyl chloride captures majority of the market share. Surge in the demand of undecanoyl chloride has driven the prices of the product by 2 fold over the historical period.
Industrial grade undecanoyl chloride ranging from synthesizing intermediates to manufacturing dyes. Prices of industrial grade are comparatively lower owing to the presence of impurities in the product. Low impact on prices was observed for industrial grade compared to the pharmaceutical grade over the past half-decade. Owing to the aforementioned factors, market is set to grow at a faster pace over the forecast period.
COVID-19 to Contract the undecanoyl chloride Market
COVID-19 or Novel corona virus has not only ceased the movement of the people but also negatively affected the production and trade. This has put the leash around the undecanoyl chloride market growth. Production of the undecanoyl chloride reduced by 20% over the 2nd quarter and has spiked the prices by 1% over the period of mid-Q2 till the end of the quarter. Prices have normalized in Q3 owing to the restart of production across the regions. Inventories held by Sigma-Aldrich and Merck have gained enough $ opportunity over the Q2 of FY2020 owing to high product prices.
