The 2016 AFA Annual Meeting will be held 2-4 February in, Egypt.
Deepika Thapliyal is a Fertilizer Markets Editor for Fertilizers at ICIS. She can be reached by email at Deepika.Thapliyal@icis.com
This edition considers the effects of the deteriorating security situation in eastern Ukraine on the ammonia market, the changing flow of Chinese urea exports, the supply/demand balance in the sulphur market and why 2014 has so far been an unusual year for phosphates.
In partnership with the International Fertilizer Industry Association (IFA), ICIS produces the global fertilizer trade flow map.
The map gives a geographic picture of the trade flows of fertilizer products between the major producing and importing countries in the world, as well as production and consumption data.
The ammonia market turns bullish heading into April 2014 as the tense geopolitical situation in the Black Sea spooked the market. The potash market appears to have reached a bottom with two major buyers, China and India, having finalized MOP contracts. The phosphates market is gearing up for the second quarter.
China’s low export tax window for phosphate fertilizers – MAP, DAP, TSP and NPKs – opened on 16 May, following weeks of discussions about business to India and Pakistan.
This briefing discusses the impact on the global market, such as North Africa, Europe, Middle East and South America.
