Market Status: Firm Week 47 2020 – Nitrogen Index gains up 3.74 points as urea values advance

Urea values have advanced in the east and west over the past two weeks. Producers in the west have extended order books into January and February, while the supply position in the east has tightened owing to production cutbacks in SE Asia and strong Chinese domestic demand.

The rapid escalation in urea prices has resulted in the Profercy World Nitrogen Index climbing 3.74 points higher to 117.00 this week. The last time the index gained by over 3 points was in July, when MMTC announced two purchasing inquiries that month.
