The Market: Market overview
The Market fertilizer publication, published every Thursday, reports and analyses fertilizer sales, prices and news from the previous seven days. It covers all the fertilizer types – nitrogen, phosphates, ammonia, sulphur and potash.
The Market is a well established market report and is best known for its authoritative, reliable yet concise coverage of the international fertilizer markets. Not only does the report cover what business that has been done, it also looks forward, analysing supply and demand scenarios and predicting where the market will be heading over the medium term.
The core editorial team is based in London with editorial resources in Japan, Singapore, Russia and North America.
Complementing The Market, ICIS also produces a daily update which provides the key business concluded over the last 24 hours.
Rising crop commodity prices and growing demand for food spurred by a growing and increasingly discerning global population means greater demand for fertilizers and there has never been a better time to be fully informed of what is happening in one of the largest and most dynamic market sectors in the world.
