Phosphorus Trichloride Specialty Chemical China USD1065/MT


The price of phosphorus trichloride in China for Q4 2023 reached 1065 USD/MT in December. The market in China functioned at optimum levels, ensuring adequate availability of phosphorus trichloride in the domestic Indian market due to manufacturers maintaining consistent production runs. Also, cost support from upstream Phosphate rock and Yellow Phosphorus increased, leading to higher production costs in China. Despite this, production rates remained moderate in domestic manufacturing facilities. This combination of cost support and moderate production rates contributed to a bullish market situation in China for phosphorus trichloride, marking a slight decrease in the price compared to the same quarter of the previous year.
