Phosphate fertilizers: Market overview
Updated to Q3 2016
The global phosphates market has been in a lull in 2016 so far and there are expectations that demand will pick up in Q3. Major buyer India has been making sporadic DAP purchases despite the high stock inventories in the country. Market participants predict an above average monsoon which is expected to make buyers return to the market.
Indian buyers are also waiting for phosphoric acid prices for Q2 to be settled between OCP and its Indian customers as discussions have been at a standstill over the past few weeks. OCP insists on its initial asking price of $650/tonne CFR, whereas buyers are not willing to pay such high levels and some have signed agreements at $600/tonne CFR. The price of the phosphoric acid will determine whether it will be cheaper to produce DAP locally or import it and is expected to give a boost to the market.
Other major markets that are expected to see demand following the seasonal summer lull are North America and Latin America that have seen buying activity winding down lately.
