Updated to Q1 2019
Phosphates supply in Europe is expected to be constant for the first quarter, as producers are focusing on the region. Buyers continue to make purchases for spring and the next season, as buying had been slow in 2018. Russian and Moroccan producers will be focusing on Europe this quarter where netbacks and demand are better than other regions.
Phosphates demand in Europe is expected to be strong in the first quarter, as buyers return to the market. They will need to make enough purchases for the next season, as demand for spring application has been fulfilled already. Demand is expected to increase, as phosphates buying in 2018 was minimal.
With spring unfolding during the Q1 period it is anticipated that levels will rise steadily to meet the forthcoming buying needs as warehouse inventory will met some of the early demand but is not stockpiled enough to cover the full season. Supply upticks will likely be push by both domestic output but from importers looking to hit the Nola market in time to meet the spring season needs.
With the start of spring demand levels will rise quickly with early buying and applications anticipated to be more pronounced due to the shortened post-harvest period, which saw inputs either cut short or deferred especially for phosphates. There will also be the start of spring in many states which will further enhance demand levels.
