Turpentine & Derivatives


January 2018

Several downstream producers have advised that they are unable to source Turpentine with the correct Alpha/Beta Pinene ratio. This has forced changes to production, which has caused prices to escalate on derivatives:

  • Iso Bornyl Acetate, Camphor Synthetic, Borneol, Iso Borneol, Dihydro Myrcenol, both Pinenes, Terpineols, Terpinyl Acetates, Synthetic Geraniols, Synthetic Citronellols, etc.

 

It will be some time before there is any relief.

Mixed reports here. While one major producer advised that prices will continue to rise there has been a short term softening of prices. Reports indicate drop is reflective of profit taking before Christmas holidays.

They also state that with Synthetic Menthol short, and the other two large manufacturers sold out, there will be more pressure on Natural, so prices have not yet peaked.
