Potassium Chlorate Price Trend for the First Half of 2022


Due to strong demand, imports from China and India increased, which resulted in higher prices for potassium chlorate. The higher demand for potassium in the downstream agricultural, soap, and detergent sectors led to an increase in the price of this raw material in India during the quarter ending March 2022. The price of potassium chlorate increased dramatically in the Asian market during the second quarter of 2022 averaging 50025 INR/MT  Ex-Ahmedabad, India. Price hikes for potassium chlorate were seen in the Chinese market due to a limited and constrained supply.


In Germany, the price of potassium chlorate was estimated in the first quarter of 2022 at 315 USD/MT FOB Hamburg, recording a rise of 2.6% from prices in the fourth quarter of 2021. Belarus, which is a major exporter of KCl, had an impact on prices because Belarusian export restrictions on potash limited market sentiment globally. During Q2 2022, the price of potassium chlorate increased averaging 540 USD/MT owing to the mismatch in market dynamics.

North America

By the end of the first quarter of 2022, the price of potassium chlorate in the USA had risen to 750 USD/MT DEL Illinois. Farmers were reported struggling with fertiliser costs even while domestic demand for agricultural products remained high. The price of potassium chlorate increased in the second quarter of 2022 averaging 605 USD/MT DEL Illinois registering a quarterly increase of 12.8%. Since the downstream sector procurement was tightly mandated by the customers and overall inventory levels were generally low, price trends in the market increased.
