CRU's Phosphoric Acid Cost Curve is available to buy separately or as part of CRU's Phosphate Fertilizer Cost Data Service. The Phosphoric Acid Cost Curve contains costs for 123 phosphoric acid operations, which is equivalent to 94% of global capacity.
You can benchmark by mine, company or country. You can download the data into Excel for further analysis.
Data is offered for each individual product during the 2006 – 2014 period. If you subscribe to multiple curves you can switch between multiple commodities easily and produce in depth multi-commodity cost analysis.
How do we calculate our costs?
Site Cost (EXW) = Raw material cost (phosphate rock and sulphur) Conversion Cost (energy, labour, consumables, sustaining capital).
Business Cost = Site Cost Realization Cost (adjustment to site cost to reflect the ex-works value of MOP relative to teh DAP fob Morocco price).
Both costs are calculated against Actual and Capacity operating rates.
Actual Operating Rate: Uses actual production rates achieved in the cost calculations.
Capacity Operating Rate: Uses capacity production rates in the cost calculations.
