Phosphorus Industry China Monthly Report 1804 (12 issues per year)
Welcome to the April Issue of Phosphorus Industry China Monthly Report.

This report will help you stay ahead of the game in this fast-changing market with real-time reporting on the entire phosphorus industry chain, from raw materials to end consumption.

Here is the Editor's Note for you to know about the April issue specifically:

China’s phosphorus chemical market was slack in April 2018 as phosphorus ore and STPP markets remained stable because of balanced supply and demand; yellow phosphorus and phosphate fertiliser prices slid down due to sufficient supplies and sluggish demand; phosphoric acid prices edged down following raw material prices.

Market dynamics of phosphorus chemicals in April 2018

Phosphorus ore: China’s phosphorus ore market remained stable resulted from balanced supply and demand. Phosphorus ore outputs in major production areas were limited, decreasing market supplies; while downstream phosphate fertiliser companies provided limited demands.

Yellow phosphorus: The yellow phosphorus price declined triggered by slack downstream glyphosate market and sufficient market supply of yellow phosphorus out of stable operating rates of manufacturers in Sichuan and Guizhou provinces. The operating rates of yellow phosphorus companies are predicted to slightly drop in the short term because of market depression.

Phosphoric acid: Domestic phosphoric acid price slightly declined due to fewer transactions and smaller demands from downstream industries, as well as a wait-and-see attitude towards purchasing.

STPP: Mainstream STPP prices scarcely changes with few companies quoting lower prices. In April, STPP prices were supported by sodium carbonate prices, while the support was offset by dropping yellow phosphorus and phosphoric acid prices. In addition, few transactions were made in the STPP market and manufacturers kept production to fulfill previous orders.

MAP: China’s MAP price maintained the downward trend as demand from downstream compound fertiliser companies was sluggish. With sufficient storages, the majority of MAP manufacturers cut capacity this month and the operating rate of producers in Hubei Province and nearby regions was 40% approximately. Some small factories even halted production.

DAP: Domestic DAP prices kept steady but showed a tendency to decrease. The spring cultivation had come to the end except in North and East China. Therefore, DAP enterprises quoted lower prices for sales promotion.

China’s phosphate fertiliser market was slack in Feb. 2018 due to sluggish downstream demand and falling raw material prices.CCM believes domestic MAP price will keep the downward trend, while DAP prices are likely to increase in view of current supply and demand.

China’s phosphate fertiliser prices in Q1 and Q2 remained stable due to sluggish downstream demand.

China’s phosphate fertiliser prices surged from Q3 owing to rising raw material prices and environmental protection inspections.

China’s yellow phosphorus prices showed an overall upward trend in 2017 as the average price increased by 17.92% YoY.

In H1 2017, China’s phosphorus chemical market was a bit depressed. As outmoded capacity was eliminated from the market and the industrial concentration improved, domestic large-scale phosphorus chemical enterprises actively cooperated with each other to seek for mutual development.

China’s phosphorus chemical prices kept an upward trend in H2 2017 thanks to rising raw material prices and environmental issues.

On 27 Jan., 2018, Yunnan Yuntianhua published 2017 financial performance forecast, predicting a turnaround in its net profit.

In 2017, Guizhou Kailin expanded its industrial chain and recycled associated fluoride, silicon and iodine resources in phosphorus ores, improving the added value of its phosphate products.

No great changes were seen in China’s phosphorus ore market in Feb. 2018. Since the market supply is expected to decrease, CCM is of the opinion that domestic phosphorus ore price is likely to edge up in the short run.

In Feb. 2018, China’s phosphoric acid price stopped decreasing. CCM expects the price to edge up in the short term due to tight market supply and slightly rising yellow phosphorus prices.
