Phosphate fertilizers: Market overview
Updated to Q3 2015
Q3 started with great expectations for demand in the main regions in the phosphates industry.
In India, the monsoon started slowly in June and despite the weak start, there are expectations for healthy demand. Since April 2.8 million tonnes of DAP have arrived at Indian ports. Also, the recently agreed price for phosphoric acid deliveries for the second half of the year was a $5/tonne increase from the previous six months. This makes DAP cheaper to import and most of the phosphoric acid produced is likely to be used for NPK production.
East of Suez, the Brazilian market has been subdued so far due to low crop prices, the depreciation of the Real and credit issues affecting the country. However, market participants agree that activity will pick up from Q3 onwards in time for the safrinha season. In the past few weeks, MAP prices have remained stable with offers in the market from China and Russia, as Morocco is focusing on the production of phosphoric acid and other products.
