wallpapers News 2020-08-31

The reporter learned at the 2014 sulfur fertilizer market seminar co sponsored by China sulfuric acid industry association China phosphate fertilizer industry association on March 5 that the overall supply dem of sulfur in 2014 will be balanced.

In 2013, the sulfur market price experienced great fluctuations.

The CIF price decreased from 170 US dollars at the beginning of the year to 80 US dollars in the middle of the year, then rose to 180 US dollars at the end of the year.

The rise of raw material price has brought great cost pressure to domestic ammonium phosphate enterprises.

According to the statistics of industry associations, China's sulfur production in 2013 was about 5.

26 million tons, with a year-on-year increase of 1.2%. Imports were 10.

55 million tons, down 5.

8% year on year.

The apparent consumption is 15.

81 million tons.

About 72% of sulfuric acid from sulfur is matched with phosphate fertilizer, the consumption of sulfur is about 9.

38 million tons, of which more than 85% comes from imported sulfur.

In 2013, the annual global sulfur trade volume was about 30 million tons, with China accounting for 10-11 million tons, which was the main market driving force.

Therefore, affected by the centralized procurement transportation problems of Chinese phosphate fertilizer enterprises, the international price of sulfur has been rising all the way.

In addition, one of the reasons is that there is a certain supply gap in the global sulfur market in 2013, which is met by the main supply treasury stock.

With the improvement of production capacity in 2014, the overall supply dem will reach a balance a small amount of excess capacity.

The situation of overcapacity is expected to be reflected in 2015.

Link: last week, the international sulfur market rose steadily, the mainstream shipping market rose slightly, the market of arrival place was stable.

Fixed sulfur FOB: Vancouver 155-165 US dollars, high-end up 5 dollars.

The Middle East is $190-195, the low end is up $7.

Iran $165-170, Black Sea $120-150, stable.

The CIF price of sulfur remained stable: Brazil's US $168-185, North Africa's $160-185, India's $220-227, China's CIF $175-220.

Tasweeq of Qatar announced that the sulfur price in March was raised to US $196 FOB.

In February, its sulfur quotation was US $163 FOB.

But at present, the Chinese market has been in a weak state, with the highest purchase price of end users at $215 CIF.

The freight from the Middle East to China is 31-34 US dollars, Qatar's quotation is equivalent to 227-230 US dollars CIF China.
