Updated to Q1 2015
Demand for monoammonium phosphate (MAP) and diammonium phosphate (DAP) for winter storage entered peak season in January-February 2015. Apart from orders signed at the end of 2014, producers also accepted new orders from northeast China, northwest China and east China. Additionally, the export tax window was cancelled and there was demand from South America and southeast Asia in January-February. As a result, selling ideas firmed amid tight supply and fewer low-priced cargoes were available. Prices were at CNY2,100-2,150/tonne EXW for 55% powdered MAP and at around CNY2,650/tonne EXW for 64% DAP. Export prices of DAP increased from $460-465/tonne FOB to $465-470/tonne FOB.
Demand weakened significantly in March. However, granular MAP and DAP prices remained high because producers were fulfilling previous orders and signed some export orders. Only powdered ammonium phosphate prices decreased slightly. Prices of 55% powdered MAP were at CNY2,030-2,060/tonne EXW. Selling ideas of DAP firmed at around CNY2,700/tonne EXW, with export prices at $470-475/tonne FOB.
ICIS reports on ammonia on a global basis, with reports in Europe, Asia and the US. At the same time, we are able to draw on global resources in London, Houston (Texas), Singapore and Shanghai.
In Europe, we report on the key benchmark using the free on board (FOB) spot price and also include cost & freight (CFR) prices for north Africa and northwest Europe (NWE).
In the Asia section, we have CFR prices for India, Taiwan and Korea.

All of our reporting is backed up by a strong methodology.
