DAP: The market demand for DAP was insufficient this month, and the market trend slightly lowered.

Upstream: The domestic sulfur market is rising steadily, and the price of sulfur in ports has increased. However, there has not been a large number of transactions in the market. The holders in the port are not in a hurry to ship, and the buyers have also followed the market and the domestic refinery prices were adjusted slightly. On May 31, the reference price of sulfur was 526.67, which was an increase of 2.6% compared with May 1 (513.33). This month, the phosphate rock market as a whole has been weakly down, the market was weak, and the downstream support was insufficient. On May 31, the reference price of phosphate rock was 393.33, which was a decrease of 3.28% compared with May 1 (406.67).

Downstream: The market for downstream compound fertilizer companies was unclear, and this month's operation was weak, with prices falling slightly. Compound fertilizer companies were cautious about the purchase of raw material ammonium phosphate, demand was reduced, and equipment maintenance was increased. The preparation of fertilizers in the north and south was nearing completion. In the short term, due to insufficient demand, the market would continue to weaken.

Industry: According to the price monitoring of SunSirs, in May 2020, there were 1 type of commodities that rose in the price list of phosphorus chemical products, 4 types of commodities that fell, and 0 types of commodities that had a price change of 0. The main commodities that went up were: phosphoric acid (1.96%); the main commodities that went down were: yellow phosphorus (-7.82%), ammonium biphosphate phosphate (-5.39%), and phosphate rock (-3.28%). This month's average increase or decrease was -3.26%.

 

Market outlook

Analysts of SunSirs believe that the raw material market for ammonium phosphate in May may have risen or fallen, and the demand for downstream compound fertilizers is insufficient. Ammonium biphosphate received some orders in advance, reducing inventory pressure. The domestic demand for DAP has decreased, the supply has shrunk, and export competition is fierce. It is expected that the ammonium phosphate market will be weak and stable in the later period.
