Phosphate fertilizers: Market overview
Updated to Q4 2016
With the year drawing to a close, the global phosphates market is starting to feel the seasonal lull of Q4. Demand from major buyer India remains subdued, with requirements covered by previous purchases and high stocks. However, there are expectations India may buy 1m tonnes of diammonium phosphate (DAP) by the end of the year. The Pakistan DAP market is showing signs of activity and it remains to be seen whether this momentum continues into Q4 after large purchases in Q3. Chinese producers, on the other hand, are focusing on the domestic and the winter storage markets.
In Australia, the import season is due to start. There is talk Chinese producers will target that market and increased competition among producers may see prices fall.
West of Suez, the harvest season is underway in the US and there are expectations that demand will pick up in the coming weeks. Several Russian and Moroccan cargoes are expected to arrive in New Orleans which could put prices under more pressure. Elsewhere, monammonium phosphate (MAP) demand in Brazil is expected to pick up by the end of the year ahead of the safrinha season.
