This report is about phosphorus industry chain with the adoption of data from CCM's database and other sources, which mainly includes production, price and import & export data of major phosphorus products (phosphorus ore, phosphate fertilizer and yellow phosphorus) in China, to tell you the market dynamics in the past three to five years, and bring you important reference information for decision.
In recent years, phosphorus market is in poor situation at home and abroad. During 2013-2015, both phosphorus ore and yellow phosphorus witnessed a decrease in price. At the same time, the export volume of China's phosphorus ore has been on a downtrend.
Nevertheless, China, a large phosphorus supplier in the world, still produces lots of phosphorus ore and products.
To stimulate the downstream market demand, China has decreased the export tariff on phosphorus ore from 35% in 2015 to 20% in 2016. In 2015, foreign buyers did not need to pay more tariffs for importing phosphate fertilizers in China during China's booming season of phosphate fertilizers according to the 2015 Tariff Implementation Plan issued by the Ministry of Finance of China. That is a driving factor for China’s phosphorus products export.
