The Chinese urea industry: addressing the global impact
The Chinese urea industry is arguably the most pivotal market in the nitrogen business, impacting international urea prices and trade. It is also the least well understood – and bridging this knowledge gap is crucial for strategy development for major international players within the urea insustry.
Widely diverse geographical factors, energy efficiency, age, ownership, profitability, fuel and feedstock inputs as well as realised prices all have a considerable impact on the chinese urea industry. In addition, recent changes to export tariff rules in China, which have traditionally insulated international urea markets and prices, have resulted in a growing need for insightful, independent analysis of this dynamic market.
- Where is new investment needed in China and will any capacity close?
- Which Chinese producers will become major players in international markets, and how much will China export with or without export tariffs in the future?
- What are the feedstock, production costs and trade outlook for the Chinese market?
Integer’s new Focus Report The Chinese urea industry: addressing the global impact answers these questions and delivers an essential, timely analysis of the Chinese urea market. Unique to this report are expert cost curves using top down and bottom up analysis of the key urea operations in China. These are derived from Integer’s extensive database of production, cost and financial performance for each key producer of ammonia and urea in the country.
