Argus Fertilizers 2021. CIS, Caspian and Black Sea Markets

On behalf of the Argus price reporting agency, we cordially invite you to take part in the Argus Mineral Fertilizers 2021. CIS, Caspian and Black Sea Markets international conference, which will be held in Batumi, Georgia, on 15-16 September 2021.

Argus Mineral Fertilizers 2021. CIS, Caspian and Black Sea Markets continues the series of the Argus international conferences dedicated to fertilizer markets in the former Soviet countries. Argus regularly holds global industry events and forums giving their participants the chance to discuss situation in various energy commodity markets. These events bring together a broad international audience including key manufacturers, traders, forwarders, government agencies, shippers, exporters and financial companies.

The mineral fertilizer market is showing stable growth, even despite the shocks of last year and amid economic slump. Manufacturers in Russia and Caspian countries continue to commission new production facilities. The production increase leads to the need to expand transport infrastructure in the Caspian region and on the Black Sea coast, i.e. to insure new wagons, loading stations and transshipment centres.

The current rise in fertilizer prices around the world, along with the increased market volatility, not only open new export opportunities for manufacturers and trading companies in Central Asia, but also change trading flows in the region.

The conference programme will cover the following topics and subjects:

  • Major trends in the global fertilizer market
  • Urea markets in the Caspian, Black Sea and Mediterranean regions
  • Danube Transport Corridor development: prospects for Russian and Caspian fertilizer suppliers in the markets of Romania, Serbia and Bulgaria
  • Ukrainian market’s segmented import dependency, demand for fertilizers from Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan and Turkmenistan
  • Central Asian and Caspian markets:
    • the region’s agriculture sector review: outlook for fertilizer demand in Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan and Turkmenistan
    • regional markets’ dependency on Russian imports
    • key sales markets for Central Asian fertilizer producers: Turkey, Iran, China and Afghanistan
    • changes in fertilizer trade flows between the countries in the region
  • New logistics infrastructure in Black Sea ports and changes in fertilizer trade flows
  • Overland logistics in the region: development of railway links and the competition of road transport
  • Caspian Sea and Volga-Don Canal are the key transport route for the exports of fertilizers and sulfur from the Central Asian countries
  • Bulk freight market overview in 2021
  • Container and multimodal fertilizer transportation: new opportunities for suppliers
