NP Fertilizers Price Trend for the Second Half of 2022

Asia Pacific

During the third quarter, the cost of water-soluble NP fertilizers significantly increased. The market's sudden and strong demand was greater than the supply could handle. Demand for the product increased dramatically in both the Chinese and Indian markets in the third quarter of 2022. NP fertilizer prices, however, decreased in the fourth quarter. Due to the lower costs of imports from Northeast Asia and the abundance of stock in that region, the NP fertilizers’ prices fell. The primary contributor to this decline was the stagnant demand from the industrial and agricultural sectors.


Throughout the third quarter, the prices of NP fertilizers remained strong. The European market witnessed an increase in agricultural activities which fueled increasing demand from the market. The weather patterns and rising energy production costs in the area continued to be advantageous for fertilizer price rise. The fourth quarter did not, however, continue this pattern. The price trend was negatively impacted by rising energy costs and saturated demand.

North America

In the third quarter, the prices of NP fertilizers increased as a result of the skyrocketing demand from the agricultural sector. The agricultural industries dominated the third quarter and drove up the demand for fertilizer and in turn the price trend. However, the cost of these fertilizers fell precipitously in the fourth quarter considering the region's persistently high supply compared to demand.

Analyst Insight

According to Procurement Resource, the price trends for NP fertilizers are expected to decline in the upcoming quarter as the demand from the end-user industries seems to be declining. The rising energy costs and disruption in the supply-demand dynamics will lead to a decline in the prices of NP fertilizers.

NP Fertiliser Price Trend For the First Half of 2022


Following an increase of 80% the previous year, fertiliser prices in China have increased by almost 30% since the year's beginning. Several interrelated reasons, such as rising ingredient costs, supply disruptions brought on by sanctions (against Belarus and Russia), and export limitations, all contributed to price increases (China). While phosphate and potash prices were closer to their 2008 peaks, urea prices were higher.

The war in Ukraine heightened worries about the cost and availability of fertiliser. Ammonia output was drastically reduced as a result of rising natural gas prices, particularly in Europe.

Ammonia is a crucial component of nitrogen-based fertilisers. China's ammonia plants were prompted to reduce production due to skyrocketing coal prices, which raised the price of urea. Ammonia and phosphate costs have increased, which has also inflated the price trends for NP fertilisers.


The cost of Np fertiliser in Europe dropped across the board toward the end of the primary fertiliser season. Granulated urea's international basket price index decreased from just under 1,000 USD/MT to under 700 USD/MT.

Numerous factors contributed to the decrease in the price of nitrogen, including the softening of the cost of natural gas during that time, high prices that reduced demand for nitrogen, and the conclusion of the primary fertiliser season.

North America

Despite stabilising or declining slightly in the five months following Russia's invasion of Ukraine, NP fertiliser prices are still significantly higher than in 2021, so farmers who bought early to start preparing their crops for 2023 did see the same cost savings as they did last year. However, the second week of June 2022 saw a small decline in retail fertiliser costs.

Nitrogen and superphosphate are both present in NP fertilisers, sometimes referred to as granular fertilisers. Because they use a lot of ammonium sulphate, they are known to contain a lot of sulphur. The crops and soils receive a balanced amount of nutrients from NP fertilisers. S, Ca (Calcium), and Mg (Magnesium), which are secondary nutrients included in NP fertilisers, may lower the likelihood of soil deficiency, resulting in a higher yield and higher-quality produce.

Furthermore, NP fertilisers are well renowned for their exceptional hardness, which ensures that quality is maintained during handling, blending, and field application. These fertilisers also have the advantage of being completely soluble or miscible with all nutrients readily available for plant absorption.

Production Processes

  • Production of NP Fertiliser from Rock Phosphate

In order to separate calcium nitrate from phosphoric acid as crystals, phosphate rock is first acidified with nitric acid to produce a combination of calcium nitrate and phosphoric acid. To create NP fertiliser, the residual phosphoric acid filtrate—which also contained traces of calcium nitrate and nitric acid—is ultimately neutralised with ammonia.
