In terms of phosphate rock, the overall performance of the domestic phosphate rock market remained stable. At the beginning of September, the domestic market for medium and high-end phosphate rock fell slightly, and the price of phosphate rock in some mining companies was reduced by 10-20 RMB/ton nearby. At the beginning of the month, the main reason for the weakening of the phosphate rock market was that the terminal demand in the downstream phosphate fertilizer market was general, which affected the mentality of the industry and gave loose support to the demand side of phosphate rock, and the overall market sentiment turned weaker than at the end of August. At present, as the National Day holiday is approaching, logistics and transportation have also been suspended one after another. The news in the phosphate rock field is relatively calm as a whole. The phosphate rock data engineer of SunSirs believes that in the short term, the domestic phosphate rock market will continue to run steadily, and the specific trend needs to pay more attention to the news changes on the supply and demand side.
