World Phosphate Fertilizer Demand Outlook
• All world regions forecast to have steady or higher demand going forward, following a rebound from the current economic downturn – growth will be led by Brazil and Asia.
• Growth in ethanol/biofuels particularly in the US and EU is expected to promote demand there, though modestly.
• Overall, global phosphate demand growing at 2.1% per year over the medium term, slowing down over the long-term with improved technology and efficiency.
