SINGAPORE, July 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

ICIS, the trusted market intelligence source for the global chemical, energy and fertilizer industries, is launching its new online data service for fertilizers via the ICIS dashboard.

The ICIS dashboard is a dynamic online service that allows users to view prices, news and analysis - all in a single screen. The ability to view ICIS fertilizers market information via the dashboard gives industry players quick and convenient access to key developments, such as price movements, updates on tenders, bids, offers, production data, shutdowns, cargo movements and the latest government policies that could directly affect the fertilizer commodity market.

There are more than 80 price assessments for fertilizer-related commodities available via the dashboard.  Users can use the dashboard to compare price trends - from fertilizer feedstocks (such as gas and ammonia) to key fertilizer commodities and related petrochemical downstream products (such as caprolactam and melamine) - giving a holistic view of where prices may be heading. The information in the dashboard can be configured to suit the user's preference. It also offers charting tools enabling users to plot historical price data and download the information as excel, csv or image files.

"The dashboard is a more technologically advanced way of delivering information about fertilizer commodities to the industry, offering immediate and comprehensive market information online. It provides easy access to data and more functionality that will benefit users," said Antonella Harrison, Fertilizers Commercial Director at ICIS.

"Customers can stay on top of the market due to the timely delivery of global information, such as prices, news, trading updates and market alerts, directly to their computers. Information in the dashboard may be configured by the user, including plotting of historical price charts, to give them a full view of the markets that are most important to them. In addition, users will also greatly benefit from the extensive coverage of the China fertilizers markets," Antonella added.
