Market outlook

The Ammonium Sulfate Analyst of SunSirs believes that the current market for coking grade ammonium sulfate is gradually improving, the supply of capro-grade ammonium sulfate is in short supply, the start-up is low, and manufacturers are actively priceing. It is expected that coking grade ammonium sulfate will mainly increase slightly in the later period, and capro-grade ammonium sulfate will be mainly weakly finishing.
