Phosphorus Industry China Monthly Report 1705
Welcome to the May 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 May issue specifically:

In May 2017, China's phosphorus chemical market remained stable with no great changes in the phosphorus ore market. The supply of yellow phosphorus remained low and more trades were seen this month. The demand for phosphate was favourable, with the price slightly increased. The price of calcium hydrogen phosphate dropped down, due to a sluggish market.

Market dynamics of phosphorus chemicals in May 2017:

Phosphorus ore: The market of phosphorus ore remained stable, while the downstream market was sluggish with limited demand and steady price.

Yellow phosphorus: The price of yellow phosphorus declined this month due to the increased supply in Sichuan and Yunnan provinces. Also, the electricity price fell in Sichuan Province, so the costs on electricity decreased. Downstream companies, holding a wait-and-see attitude, bargained for lower prices and only purchased sufficient yellow phosphorus to support their production.

Phosphoric acid: The market and price of phosphoric acid kept steady. Producers maintained stable operating rates and mainly produced to fulfill previous orders. Few trades were made due to the sluggish demand caused by falling yellow phosphorus prices.

STPP: The market of STPP was still depressed. Although the price of yellow phosphorus decreased, STPP producers still hesitated to purchase raw materials. Since the price of STPP kept steady, producers maintained low operating rates and few trades were seen in the market.

MAP: No great change was seen in domestic MAP market, with stable price and slightly declined operating rates. Downstream companies were not enthusiastic on purchasing and only bought a small amount of MAP.

DAP: Domestic DAP market maintained a low level and the sale in the northeast and the northwest had come to an end. Domestic manufacturers offered little supply and extremely few trades were made. The overall operating rate dropped down due to the production reduction and suspension and facilities overhauls of producers. The exports of DAP remained stable, with the demand from India and Pakistan steadily increased.

At the end of April 2017, the 24th annual meeting of the phosphate compound fertiliser industry commenced in Jinan City, Shandong Province. CCM was in attendance to learn the direction of future development for the industry.

In May 2017, extremely few domestic demands for phosphate fertiliser were seen in the market and producers focused on the export of DAP. CCM is of the opinion that China's phosphate fertiliser market will remain sluggish in a short run.

In May 2017, CPFIA announced to held the first training for carbon emission trading in the MAP and DAP industries at the beginning of July.

In May 2017, Yichang Xiaoting Industrial Park was officially named the National Famous Brand Demonstration Area of the Fine Phosphorus Chemical Industry.

In April and May 2017, Guizhou Kailin signed strategic cooperative agreements with several companeis.

At the end of April 2017, Yunnan Yuntianhua announced the transfer of the company's shares in its subsidiary, Qinghai Yuntianhua. This transaction will help to alleviate Yunnan Yuntianhua's current losses and to safeguard the overall interests of the listed company.

In May 2017, the MOA held a press briefing to promote the replacement of chemical fertiliser with organic fertiliser.

In May 2017, the MOF published detailed rules for streamlining and combination of VAT rate and the rules will be put into effect on 1 July, 2017.

In April 2017, China's price of yellow phosphorus remained the same upward trend as in March. The growth rate of ex-work prices in major producing areas averaged over 10% MoM, but yellow phosphorus prices slightly dropped at the second half of April due to higher operating rates. Considering the rising operating rates and limited downstream demand, CCM is of the opinion that China's yellow phosphorus price will fall in a short term.

In April 2017, China's STPP market remained stable with a low overall operating rate. STPP prices slightly rose in Sichuan and Hubei provinces while declined in Yunnan and Guizhou provinces. Due to the possibly falling costs of upstream, low operating rates of STPP producers and sluggish downstream demand, CCM is of the opinion that China's STPP market will keep steady in the short run.
