The Asian phosphorous trichloride market remained mixed in Q4 2021. Rising raw material costs influenced the price trend of the chemical across regional markets in early Q4. The overall output of the raw material yellow phosphorus for the global market had been impacted due to China's dual energy policy and other production-related concerns. According to reports, China reduced its yellow phosphorus output by more than 80%, resulting in a catastrophic raw material shortage in the regional market. After several weeks of an exponential rise, prices in India have returned to normal. Following the arrival of scheduled cargoes from China, traders quoted prices that were significantly lower than in previous weeks. PCl3 (phosphorus trichloride) prices in India were estimated to be 3025 USD/MT.
