International sulphur importing countries reshuffle trade volume slightly adjusted

wallpapers News 2020-11-11
Sulfur is an indispensable raw material for the production of many fertilizers. The related effects of sulfur on international fertilizer production make the price dem of sulfur become the international fertilizer price indicators. Roughly estimated, in 2012, China's phosphate fertilizer export accounted for 21.8% of the total international trade volume, sulfur import accounted for 38% of the international sulfur trade volume. It can be seen that China's phosphate fertilizer export sulfur import have a great impact on the world phosphate fertilizer market. The dem of

sulfur is increasing year by year. The sulfur dem in 2013 will reach 5.5 million tons. It is predicted that the dem will continue to rise in the future. According to the data, the sulfur production in North America in 2012 was about 14.5 million tons, including 8 million tons in the United States 6.2 million tons in Canada. Production in North America will rise slightly in 2013 compared with 2012. In addition, the output of Asia, Saudi Arabia, UAE other regions increased slightly in 2013. In the global sulfur market of

, the sulfur used to produce industrial sulfuric acid accounts for 45%, of which, more than 60% is used for fertilizer production. In terms of fertilizer production process, sulfuric acid phosphate rock synthesize phosphoric acid. Phosphoric acid sulfuric acid are important raw materials for the production of phosphate fertilizer compound fertilizer. Therefore, the change of sulfur price dem directly affects the global fertilizer dem price change, the sulfur fertilizer production have a high correlation.

sulfur as raw material oriented products, the raw materials needed for production are mainly oil, coal or natural gas. In 2012, the world produced 24 million tons of sulfur from oil as the main raw material, the main production areas were China, India, Spain the United Kingdom. With natural gas coal as the main raw materials, the sulfur produced is 27 million tons, the main production areas are China, Qatar Saudi Arabia. The forecast shows that in 2013, the places with oil as the main raw materials will turn to North America, while the production of natural gas coal will mainly be concentrated in the Middle East China.

at present, the global sulfur exporting countries are Russia, North America, the Middle East, Japan South Korea; the main importing countries are China, Morocco, India Brazil. Canada is the largest sulfur exporter in the world, with an export volume of about 6 million tons in 2012, followed by Russia with about 4.7 million tons. The largest importing country is China, with an import volume of 10 million tons in 2012. 74% of sulfur imported by China is used for phosphate fertilizer production. According to the survey, the quantity of sulfur imported from China is increasing year by year, which is related to the expansion of domestic phosphate fertilizer production capacity the strong global dem for phosphate fertilizer. In addition to China, Morocco is also one of the world's major sulfur importers. Recently, with the decline of Morocco's dem, the export volume of major exporting countries has declined. In 2012, the sulfur import volume of Morocco decreased from 6.4 million tons to 3 million tons, Brazil from 2.1 million tons in 2012 to 1.9 million tons, India was relatively stable at about 1.8 million tons.

look forward to the sulfur market in the future. The overall supply of sulfur market in 2013 exceeds the dem, the dem of major importing countries Morocco China will affect the trend of the whole international market. In 2013, the global sulfur supply remained stable, but the decline in dem led to the market not to be very hot. In addition, the adjustment of production raw materials will also lead to the adjustment of sulfur market.
