Export Volume of Urea and DAP Is Excepted to Decline

CCM’s September issue of Phosphorus Industry China Monthly Report has come out recently. The top story is export volume of urea, and DAP is expected to keep downturn in the rest of 2011.

The export tariffs of urea and DAP/MAP have been effective since Jan. 1st , 2011. The export tariff adjustments resulted in the decrease of urea and DAP exportation. In H1 2011, China totally exported 4.75 million tonnes of fertilizers: DAP accounted for 642,000 tonnes and urea was 688,000 tonnes. Compared with that in the same period last year, DAP and urea export volume decreased by 14.1% and 55.8% respectively.

Based on the export tariff, the declining export trigger prices and the raising production cost, as well as RMB appreciation (has appreciated 3.6% from Jan. 1st  to Aug. 31st ), jointly erode the profits from urea and DAP/MAP export. Many enterprises, especially that without cost advantage (e.g. with own phosphorus resource), even lost in exporting urea and DAP/MAP. As a result, the export of urea and DAP fell in H1 2011.

In the rest of 2011, the export volume of urea and DAP is expected to keep downturn, with the raising production cost.
