Calcium phosphate producers reported that new orders were limited, resulting in expanding inventories. Several of them negotiated prices eagerly in a bid to stimulate buying but response was lukewarm.
 
As H7N9 bird flu epidemic decimated the population of poultry in China, poultry feed demand and hence calcium phosphate usages were slow over the past few months. Feed millers were therefore reluctant to increase stocks amid poor feed sales.
 
 
Forecasts
 
Calcium phosphate sales are unlikely to improve prominently as poultry population remains low while hog market stays weak. The market will be under pressure in the coming period.
 
Several producers are expected to cut production should prices drop further, resulting in tighter supply.
