Sulphur Overview Transcript

Sulphur is an important raw material and has gained a lot of attention from commodity traders in recent years.

Our ICIS sulphur report is published weekly, and it provides market players accurate and timely information on the latest sulphur trades across the world.

Our quotes include the Free On Board or FOB prices out of two of the largest sulphur producing regions: Canada and the Middle East. On a weekly basis we also assess the cost and freight or CFR prices in major import markets including China, north Africa and the US.

Over 90% of sulphur is used for the production of sulphuric acid for fertilizer production and industrial uses. We follow closely the movement of these price drivers.

We also strive to deliver news on the upstream market to our subscribers by drawing upon our resources in London, Houston, Shanghai and Singapore

A tight-to-balanced sulphur market will bring price above historical terms and we expect prices to remain volatile in the coming years.

This weekly report is backed up by a solid methodology, and will provide our subscribers the necessary information needed for their business decisions.
