First Sulphur and Sulphuric Acid 12-Month Price Forecast Report Launched by ICIS in Partnership With Integer Research

LONDON, January 22, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

ICIS, the leading provider of fertilizer market intelligence, is the first to launch a short-term 12-month price forecast report for the sulphur and sulphuric acid markets. Produced in partnership with Integer Research, the new Outlook Sulphur and Sulphuric Acid report further extends ICIS existing coverage of fertilizers forecast intelligence. The report will provide industry players with information and analysis of the price movements likely to impact their short-term trades and strategies.

The sulphur market has become particularly volatile in recent years, with a variety of factors influencing price shifts. The decline in phosphate consumption has been key for example. Reliable information on the underlying fundamentals impacting the sulphur and sulphuric acid markets in the short term as well as news of upcoming changes in supply, demand and trade have been difficult to source until now. As the sulphuric acid market continues to face low pricing and sluggish demand in key regions, this new monthly report will help decision-makers and strategists keep track and analyse key developments as they take effect.

Meena Chauhan, Integer Research's sulphur research manager, highlighted the breadth of information included in the new report. "Market players need to be aware of upcoming supply/demand projects for both sulphur and sulphuric acid - so new projects are listed, including new phosphates capacity as well as new sulphur and sulphuric acid production capacity. The report analyses developments in supply and demand with regional overviews. DAP (diammonium phosphate) margins are also covered as well as the rolling 12 month forecast."

"We have tested our customers' requirements and an in-depth analysis of short-term fundamentals in the sulphur and sulphuric acid markets, together with accurate price forecasting, appears crucial to support their business decisions. Our partnership with Integer will provide customers with enhanced data on both products and a stronger outlook into the phosphate and industrial sides of demand. Forecasting sulphuric acid prices represents a unique and important added value for our customer," Antonella Harrison, ICIS commercial director for fertilizers, said. 

The monthly outlook covers sulphur and sulphuric acid separately within the report and focuses on the core regions of Europe, the Americas, Middle East, Asia and Africa. Each month, an overview of the current market position sets the context for the price forecast which extends 12 months ahead. Subscribers gain insight into where supply and demand will come from; understand the dynamics behind price movements; and learn more about the implications of margins on prices and trade flows. This will help make decisions in many areas including contract price negotiations, production and inventory plans, opportunity evaluation and future investment.
