The global phosphates sector has witnessed a metamorphosis in the past few years, from the emergence of China and Saudi Arabia as price-setters in the vital Indian DAP market to consolidation of the supply side, the weakening influence of global trading companies and the movement down the supply chain by major producers to dominate key markets.
Fundamentally, the phosphates market remains oversupplied, which means rationalisation will continue. This has implications for price transparency, necessitating real expertise and experience in assessing prices, backed up by a rigorous methodology.
