What is DAP
Diammonium phosphate (DAP) is a chemical compound that is commonly used as a fertiliser. It is composed of two molecules of ammonia and one molecule of phosphoric acid, and is commonly abbreviated as DAP. It is a source of both nitrogen and phosphorous, which are essential nutrients for plant growth. DAP is often used as a fertiliser in agriculture and horticulture, particularly for crops such as wheat, corn, and rice. It can also be used in other applications, such as in the production of animal feed and as a flame retardant. DAP is generally considered to be a safe and effective fertiliser when used as directed.
How is DAP produced
Diammonium phosphate (DAP) is produced through a chemical reaction between ammonia and phosphoric acid. The process usually begins with the production of ammonia, which is typically done through the Haber-Bosch process, in which nitrogen gas is reacted with hydrogen gas to produce ammonia. The ammonia is then combined with phosphoric acid, which is typically produced through the wet process, in which phosphate rock is treated with sulfuric acid to produce phosphoric acid. The ammonia and phosphoric acid are mixed together in a reactor, where they react to form diammonium phosphate. The resulting product is then dried and granulated to produce a finished fertiliser product. The exact process may vary depending on the specific manufacturer and the desired characteristics of the final product.
What is DAP used for
Diammonium phosphate (DAP) is a chemical compound that is commonly used as a fertiliser in agriculture and horticulture. It is a source of both nitrogen and phosphorous, which are essential nutrients for plant growth. DAP is often used to supplement soil that is low in these nutrients, particularly in crops such as wheat, corn, and rice. It can also be used to correct nutrient imbalances in soil, or to support the growth of specific types of plants that have specific nutrient requirements. In addition to its use as a fertiliser, DAP may also be used in other applications, such as in the production of animal feed and as a flame retardant.
How big is the DAP market
The market for fertilisers, including diammonium phosphate (DAP), is significant, as fertilisers are an essential component of modern agriculture. The demand for fertilisers is driven by the need to increase crop yields and support the growing global population. According to data from the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), the global demand for fertilisers is expected to continue to grow in the coming years, particularly in developing countries where the demand for food is increasing. In 2019, the global market for fertilisers was valued at around $200 billion, and it is expected to grow to around $320 billion by 2024. DAP is one of the most widely used fertilisers, and it is a significant component of the overall fertiliser market.

Where does the data come from?
- The source of the data are exclusively public non-confidential sources
- This the index trend of the price trend of the "product category" in general, and not a single specification of the product in particular
- The data is a combination of contract and spot pricing
- Our algorithms are set up to eliminate significant product mix impact on the reported price
- We combine public publications, import/export records, trading prices, company announcements, magazine articles, tweets, and other sources of ad-hoc public information.
- The chart shows the our best approximation of the market trend based on our algorithm interpretation of the signals
- For most indexes we have multiple sources and we focus on using statistically-correlated sources
- We will update the data trend as more information becomes available, and this means that recent trends will always be adjusted as we get more data available
- We will constantly revise our understanding of market trends, and indicated market trends may change
- The data is presented in US$. The UOM of measure is shown in the Index list table
- We do our best to create an accurate representation of the trend
Where does the data NOT come from?
- We do not purchase data from any other source and republish it.
- We will not purchase data from any other source and republish it
- We do not extrapolate trends, even for the forecast. We look for other market signals and leading indicators
What does the quality indication in the main menu mean?
- Quality level A: Data is from a reliable and confirmed source
- Quality level B: Data is from multiple credible sources and there are no major statistical inconsistencies between them
- Quality level C: Data is from multiple credible sources and there are some statistical inconsistencies between them
- Quality level D: Data is from a single credible source, but we cannot verify the data
- Quality level E: Data is either:
- From a single source, which we consider reliable, but we cannot verify the data.
- From 2 or more sources which have some periods of contradicting trends.
- Quality level F: Data is from a single source which we consider indicatively correct, but the data is anecdotal and we cannot verify the data.
What does the data intend to show?
- The price trend we show is intended to represent the locally manufactured prices, or local FOB prices.
- It is possible that product is imported in from other countries at a lower, or higher, price than shown.
- For example:
- The USA price for TiO2 is US$3,000/MT
- The China price for TiO2 is US$2,100/MT
- If a USA company buys TiO2 from China, their CIF price may be US$2,350/MT
- Our reporting is intended to show the US$3,000/MT, and the the US$2,100/MT but not the US$2,350/MT
What data should our company use?
- If you are making decisions driving significant share of profit, we always recommend that you buy data from the companies who invest in direct market access such as ICIS, amongst many others
- Our data, at best, represents an estimate of the market trend based on public information
- We have no direct access to the market, and we do not interview suppliers and customers
- Our analysis tools in the online software are set up to combine our data with other sources of data
What are the disclaimers?
- We assume no responsibility or liability for any errors or omissions in the content of this site.

How often do we update the data?
- We aim to update the data series on the 9th and 24th of each month (but we do not always make it for each chart)
- The data for the current month and recent history are fine-tuned over time.
What are we doing to improve the data?
- We are continually improving our data collection and processing methods
- Pricing data will be updated from time to time as we improve the accuracy
- We will improve our price trend algorithm before December 31, 2023.
- There will be continuous fine-tuning of the trend and forecast algorithm until end of December 2023.
- As part of that process, we will add many additional indexes in the final quarter of 2023
