There are two main reasons for the rise:
² Sufficientdownstream orders. Most of the Yellow phosphorus enterprisesexpress that the recent orders are sufficient due to downstream rigid needs,and that the spot goods supply schedule is slightly tight.
² Theepidemic affects logistics. In early Sept., because of the severe epidemic inQujing, Yunnan Province and Guiyang, Guizhou Province, the main concentrationsof phosphate rock in China, some high-speed intersections were closed andcontrolled, and the delivery of Yellow phosphorus and raw materials wasblocked.
Market outlook forecast: In theshort term, the supply of Yellow phosphorus will maintain a low level, whichwill continue to favor the price rise.
