The ease of urea availability east and west of Suez has shaped the current trade flows of this key nitrogen fertilizer. Despite challenges posed by the Covid-19 pandemic, key import markets such as India, Australia, and Latin America remain robust. But structural oversupply and the role of China as a swing exporter have resulted in persistent price volatility as this fast-moving market finds equilibrium, more so during seasonally high-demand periods. In response to this fundamental market development, we launched the Argus Nitrogen daily price report in January 2020. In a groundbreaking move for this industry, we now accurately and reliably assess urea prices on a daily basis.
In addition to urea, our extensive nitrogen coverage includes UAN, ammonium nitrate, and ammonium sulphate. Our experienced editorial team and wide network of offices globally enable us to cover these markets intensively and comprehensively, while our suite of services cover the full range of price reporting, short-term outlooks, mid to long-term outlooks, and bespoke consulting solutions.
