Potassium Sulfate Price Trend for the First Half of 2023


In the first quarter of 2023, the feedstock prices inclined till the middle of the quarter and supported the rise in the prices of potassium sulfate. However, towards the end of this quarter, the rates of imports increased by several folds while demand and exports fell significantly, hurting the market sentiments of potassium sulfate. The falling trend continued in the second quarter, too, as the number of consumer inquiries slowed down. In addition to this, the influx of cheap imports from Russia and weak domestic demand played a crucial role in dictating the downward trajectory of potassium sulfate prices.

The European market experienced a downward trend in the prices of potassium sulfate primarily due to the ongoing decrease in the prices of raw materials and a significant increase in inventory levels. Additionally, trade sanctions imposed on Russian imports and a reduced number of inquiries further dampened market confidence, resulting in a decline in potassium sulfate prices. Further, the fertilizer sector also faced challenges in European countries. Moreover, rising inflation and worsening economic conditions pushed the price trend of potassium sulfate in a negative direction.

North America

In North America, the price trajectory of potassium sulfate exhibited a gradual decrease during both the first and second quarters of 2023. This decline was primarily due to sluggish demand from downstream industries, particularly the fertilizer sector, and the ample supply of the product within the region, which impeded the upward movement of potassium sulfate prices. Furthermore, the global market witnessed the availability of discounted materials from Asia, Africa, and South America, which ultimately led to a reduction in the price trend of potassium sulfate.
