Phosphate - Category Spend Analysis

 

According to analysts at SpendEdge, a key growth driver for the phosphate market is the high demand from the meat and dairy product manufacturers. Phosphates are used in meat products for several reasons such as stabilizing its pH value, improving texture and sensory properties (color, juiciness, tenderness, and flavor), and extending shelf-life. Feed phosphates are extensively used to enhance animal fertility as well as in aiding bone growth. The majority of demand comes from China, which is experiencing an increase in pig farming, owing to the demand for high-quality pork. Phosphorus is used for optimizing growth in pigs as well as ensuring the longevity of life.

Food-grade phosphates are used in food products as emulsifiers, sequestrants, buffers, dispersants, gel accelerants, cryoprotectants, nutrients, and discoloration inhibitors. They are mainly used in frozen meat, bakery products, fish, milk, powdered food, breakfast cereals, cheese, pet foods, and dehydrated potatoes. The retail food sector is experiencing growth due to an increase in the number of supermarkets and grocery stores where consumers are purchasing ready-to-eat and short shelf-life food products. This has resulted in a demand for food preservatives, where phosphates are widely used.

 

Phosphate - Procurement Best Practices

 

One of the best procurement practices for buyers is to collaborate with suppliers to monitor phosphate market dynamics. As the phosphate supply market is considerably affected by market dynamics such as tightening of production in China, the discovery of new phosphate reserves in Latin America, and new additions to production output, buyers should partner with suppliers to gather market intelligence and predict demand-supply dynamics. This will help buyers and suppliers gauge the impact of factors such as changes in export laws and environmental laws to offset any possible supply disruptions.

Phosphate - Procurement Challenges

 

According to this procurement market research report, one of the procurement challenges faced by buyers in this market space is the decline in phosphate exports from China.

China is one of the largest phosphate producing countries. It faced oversupply conditions, making it the leading exporter. However, the Chinese government realized that phosphate reserves are limited and export strategy is not favorable for the country's economy. In addition, the implementation of strict regulations and inspections in China's agrichemical industry are likely to increase production costs and increase the pressure on phosphate prices. Some Chinese players have also shut down because of these conditions. A decline in Chinese exports can affect supply in the market and reduce the supply pool of phosphate.
