The supply of goods in the port was difficult to find, and the holders were reluctant to sell their products. The downstream market was on the sidelines. The domestic refineries were operating normally. Traders mainly purchased on demand. The external prices were firm and the insiders had a better mentality.
At present, the domestic sulfur market is running at a high level. The downstream phosphate fertilizer market, domestic demand and export orders are improving, and the domestic spot supply is tight. The market is mainly up, which has better support for sulfur. The market players have a better mentality, and the market outlook for the sulfur market will continue to be strong, with specific attention to market transactions.
