2020 was a pretty challenging year regarding the coronavirus crisis and the economic depression. Before the Coronavirus pandemic, Brent crude oil rose to its highest level in the first four months of 2020, reaching $70 on January 6.

With the contagion of the Coronavirus in the Middle East and Europe,

as well as the closure of China’s borders, Brent crude oil hit $35 on March 9, and Brent oil has been declining since then, reaching $9 on April 21. WTI oil price changes have followed a similar trend. On January 6, WTI oil reached $63, the highest price in the current year. Two falls in the prices occurred on March 9 and April 21. They recorded the minimum WTI oil price at $11 on April 21, 2020. Moreover, OPEC’s highest oil price in 2020 was recorded on January 6 at $70. The lowest price for this oil on April 22 was $12. On March 10, a $13 drop in OPEC oil happened.

All the fluctuations mentioned above resulted from the coronavirus crisis. As we all know, the price will change undeniably as the oil value changes.

A Brief Look at 2022:

The world couldn’t reach the economic growth we had forecast for it in 2022. Therefore, bitumen consumption did not reach the expected level.

To explain more, different events like the Ukraine-Russa war and corona pandemic caused to increase and decrease in bitumen price respectively. However, the average bitumen price in 2022 was more than 2 past years.

 

A Vision of 2023

The financial Organization estimates that the price of crude oil will increase and as a result, the price of bitumen will also increase.

Exchange rate, economic growth, and conditions in each region are all factors that can affect the price of crude oil and petroleum products. but the important matter is that the projects relate to bitumen and asphalt will continue in the new year in east Asia and Africa unless special events lead to stopping them.

If nothing special happens in 2023 and oil remains in the current range, the bitumen price trend will probably not decrease and the request will be evaluated based on the country’s economic growth.

Therefore, the economic growth of the country will be a determining factor in the price of oil, bitumen, and the consumption of petroleum products.
