The downstream sulfuric acid market had risen strongly, with an average domestic sulfuric acid price of 328.75 RMB/ton on March 31, an increase of 10.04% compared to the price of 298.75 RMB/ton on March 25. Due to the low load operation of some domestic devices, the inventory of acid companies had decreased, and the prices of manufacturers had increased significantly. Downstream terminal procurement was active, and the market trading atmosphere was improving. With the dual benefits of supply and demand, the price of sulfuric acid had once again increased.

The downstream ammonium biphosphate market was experiencing a weak downturn, with an average market price of 55% powdered ammonium biphosphate at 3,096.67 RMB/ton on March 31, a decrease of 1.06% compared to the price of 3,130.00 RMB/ton on March 25.

Market outlook

According to sulfur analysts from SunSirs, the sulfur market was characterized by tight supply of goods, low inventory levels among enterprises, strong supplier quotations, and a rising downstream market supported by favorable demand. On site trading was good, and enterprise shipments were smooth, with a combination of market benefits. It is expected that the sulfur market will continue to operate to be stronger in the future, and specific attention will be paid to downstream follow-up.
