2017-2018 China Sulfur Market Annual Report

Annual Report Overview


Overall, China’s sulfur industry showed a “V”-shape movement in 2017. Influenced by the overhauls at domestic refineries, the Chinese-made sulfur supply kept decreasing. Additionally, the imported sulfur prices jumped by 15% in Q3. Consequently, China’s sulfur prices reached a yearly high level in Q3. According to SCI, the sulfur profit gained around 15% in 2017. Meanwhile, the demand in the fertilizer market was stable, and the fertilizer export volume increased somewhat, benefiting from the cancel of export tariff. Thus, the demand for sulfur also grew persistently.

Imported sulfur was still the main supply source in China’s sulfur market. With Chinese-made sulfur supply reducing, China’s sulfur import dependence ratio continued to rise. According to SCI, the ratio reached 75% in 2017, up nearly 7% from 2016. The trading sentiment at ports was optimistic in 2017.
