For comparison: in 2012 the price was $490 for 1 ton, and most analysts were convinced that in the coming years, the market price is more likely to rise than to fall. Current trends in the market is largely formed under the influence of China, the largest consumer of feed phosphates in the world.
For several years there entered a considerable number of plants producing this type of product. As a result of internal competition and attempts to dump Chinese manufacturers largely influenced the decline in the global price of phosphates.
