HOUSTON (ICIS)--US diammonium phosphate (DAP) exports in 2012 were down by nearly 8% from the same time period a year earlier, according to data made available by the US International Trade Commission (ITC) on Monday.
According to the report, US DAP exports declined to 3,626,449 tonnes in 2012 from 3,934,762 tonnes in 2011.
Exports decreased in 2012 mainly due to a lack of export sales to India, which fell from 2,103,771 in 2011 to 1,063,363 tonnes this past year. There was also reduced demand from Ecuador.
India was the major destination of US DAP exports, followed by Brazil at 521,182 tonnes and Mexico at 405,808 tonnes.
Other destinations included Japan, Argentina and Colombia.
