Menthol prices have strengthened during November with the MCX closing on November 24th, 2015 at Rps 1038.7/kg, an increase of 1.1% since our last report in October.

Since the start of 2015, prices have increased by just over 21% largely on account of the smaller 2015 Indian mint crop, from a low of Rupee 846.7/kg in January to a high of Rupee 1198.10/kg recorded during the second half of June. Since then, though, prices have fallen back due to lower Chinese demand, which itself was a reflection of generally slower overall activity of the Chinese economy.
