Editor Notes

Welcome to CCM’s new issue of Phosphorus Industry China Monthly Report in Feb. 2013.

2013 is the third year of China’s 12th Five-Year-Plan (2011–2015). According to the forecast by Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, China’s GDP growth would be around 8.2% in 2013, which is still above government’s target (7.5%–7%). Obviously, it’s hard to see China shifting focus from GDP growth to economic structure adjustment amid a high GDP growth.

During Jan. of 2013, the entire phosphorus chemical market maintained the flat status. Nonetheless, the depressed market kept the price of downstream phosphorus products even weaker as compared to the same period of last year.

In the meantime, phosphate fertilizer market seems to face an apparently gloomy start at the beginning of 2013. Russia-based phosphate fertilizer producer—PhosAgro announced production cuts in Q1 2013, which almost presaged a continued weak demand.

Headline

Hubei Province is to implement a sale-base resource tax instead of a volume-base resource tax on local phosphorus ore as of Jan. 1st 2013, which might trigger a round of phosphorus ore price rising.

Kailin Group sees a fast-growing exploitation capacity in phosphorus ore in recent five years.

To tackle the continuous decline in exploitable phosphate resources reserve, China makes efforts to increase phosphorus resources replenishment.

Relying on horizontal integration and expansion projet, Tianyi Chemical is expected to rank among the fore of China’s yellow phosphorus industry.

China’s phosphate fertilizer industry is about to see a period of consolidation in the next three or five years.

The downturn in Japan’s agriculture drives down its phosphate demand.

From upstream to downstream, China’s phosphorus chemicals market generally show quite a flat status in Jan. 2013 as affected by the coming Spring Festival.

China witnesses a sharp decline in the export volume of most phosphorus products in 2012.
