DUBLIN, Ireland, April 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Review & Outlook of China's Fertilizer Market 2012/2013" report to their offering.
On the basis of an overall analysis and review of China's fertilizer market in 2012, and combining the national economic situation and the policy change, BOABC will make an in-depth analysis of the trends of China's fertilizer market in 2013 and provide a clear judgment for people at home and abroad who focus on China's fertilizer market as a reference for their decision-making.
Influenced by tighter domestic macro-environment and insufficient demand in international market, fertilizer prices in China's market declined after growth and maintained weak as a whole. On production, the output of fertilizer set another record high and passed 60 million tons in 2012, but the growth rate was lower than that in the last year, especially, the growth rate of potash fertilizer output, which has been increasing rapidly for years, dropped sharply. On domestic consumption, although some positive factors like comprehensive agricultural subsidies have promoted the consumption of fertilizer, it kept weak throughout under the adverse impact of lower cost-benefit of farm produce and higher fertilizer prices in the first half of 2012. On export, tightening export tariff policy and weak demand in international market led China's fertilizer export down overall in 2012.
So, the oversupply situation of fertilizer market in this year became increasingly serious and was the key reason for declining fertilizer price in the second half of this year. Although the production cost of fertilizer increased slightly and even showed falling trend, the dropping fertilizer price made the profitability of fertilizer enterprises compressed obviously. Under the pressure of sluggish growth in the fertilizer market, industrial restructuring and mergers and reorganization in the industry were conducted further, the number of enterprises continued to decrease. At the same time, fertilizer production equipments and technological level have been improved, coal-water slurry gasification technology, powdered coal pressure gasification technology, large sulfur-based compound fertilizer technology and beneficiation technology of mid-low grade phosphorite started to be used widely and have achieved good benefit. In addition, new fertilizer products represented by slow controlled release fertilizer, microbial fertilizer etc, and developed fast, and its market expansion rate was much higher than the average level of fertilizer industry.
