Phosphate fertilizers: Market overview
Updated to Q2 2015
All eyes are expected to be on the Indian phosphates market in the second quarter. There are expectations that Indian demand will kick in this quarter, as the increase in the price of phosphoric acid to $805/tonne CFR for January-June has made it cheaper to import DAP than to produce it in India.
Another game changer will be China and the timing of its exports. With the scrapping of the export tax window and the introduction of a flat export tax regime this year, Chinese producers have been focusing on the domestic market and small export sales so far. However, market players expect Chinese product to be competing in non-traditional markets (such as North and South America) and thus increasing competition among producers and putting pressure on prices.
In other regions, demand is expected out of the US domestic market with spring application under way. With DAP barge prices under pressure lately and lacklustre activity on the Mississippi river, buyers are expected to start making purchases soon as the weather improves and especially if Moroccan, Russian and Chinese product arrives in the US at more competitive prices than domestic DAP.
