Mineral or chemical fertilizers contain three nutrients: nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium (NPKs), which ensure better harvest of crops. Driven by fast development of global agricultural products, NPKs is the development trend of future global fertilizer industry because it has complete advantages of nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium. NPKs is also essential for the food supply, as fertilizer becomes the top issue to increase crop output.
China, Brazil, Thailand and Vietnam, which are the major NPKs production countries in the world, have been keeping an uptrend in NPKs production these years. Price and production of NPKs are determined by raw material supply. Thus NPKs prices vary in different countries/regions, owning to different situations of raw material supply.
At present, global NPKs consumption is focused in China, Brazil, India and the EU. And NPKs consumption in China, Brazil, Vietnam and Thailand will further increase, while it has been on the decline in the EU and the US. In general, for the sake of different geographical locations, the usage seasons of NPKs vary in different country. For example, in China, the usage season is mainly from Feb. to May and from Jul. to Oct. every year, while it is averaged in four seasons in Brazil and the US.
As to imports and exports of NPKs, Russia, Norway and the EU (mainly Belgium, Romania and Finland) are the major import origins of NPKs worldwide, and China and Thailand are the major export destinations in 2009. From aspects of production, supply, consumption, import and export, it can be estimated that there are huge business opportunities ahead in the global NPKs market.
