Phosphate fertilizers: Market overview
Updated to Q1 2017
Phosphates market participants are expected to focus on India in the first quarter. OCP and its customers remain in a stand-off on the settlement of phosphoric acid contract prices for Q1 deliveries. The new price is expected to give some price direction to the market and some indication on DAP import demand for 2017, which has been lacklustre so far.
Elsewhere, Saudi producer Ma’aden signed a supply agreement with Bangladesh for an unknown volume of DAP for this year, which is expected to ease the oversupply anticipated in 2017 with new plants coming on stream in Saudi Arabia.
Meanwhile, Chinese producers are focusing on the domestic season which remains active compared to subdued global demand. In the first quarter, producers are planning to reduce phosphates output as the government cracks down on pollution from chemical plants.
West of Suez, the North American barge market is expected to pick up in the first quarter, as buyers make purchases for spring application. DAP/MAP cargoes from Russia and Morocco are expected at Nola in the coming weeks, which may ease the recent tight availability. Similarly, the Brazilian market is expected to pick up in the quarter as demand for MAP is estimated to increase soon for the safrinha season.
