Data and Statistics

World production of phosphate rock in 2015 was slightly above 200 mln MT and rose by 30 mln MT in the last 10 years.

The largest producers in the world include China (83 mln MT), United States (27 mln MT), Morocco (26,2 mln MT), Russia (11,5 mln MT), Jordan (8,3 mln MT), and Brazil (5,4 mln MT). Smaller producers include Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Peru, Israel, Tunisia, Vietnam, Australia, Kazakhstan, Senegal, Mexico, South Africa, India, Algeria, and Togo.

Challenges for the Future

The EU mineral phosphate fertilizer industry faces a number of challenges in the coming years in terms of trade, contaminant regulation and introduction of fertilizers based on organic and recycled sources of phosphorus.

The lack of domestic sources of phosphorus poses stability of supplies risks and exposure to competitive pressures from suppliers that also compete on the EU market for finished fertilizers. Growing concerns on contaminants in water and soils and therefore, food, leads to increasing calls for cleaner fertilizers, which in turns increases the competitive pressures for clean sources of phosphorus, located outside of the EU and owned by competitors. And pressures to introduce circular economy, including in farming and animal-by products, leads to introduction of fertilizers based on organic and recycled sources.
