Fertilisers

Fertilisers - Chemicals - Poland

Production, market share and investments

Production

Due to the good condition of agriculture and increasing prosperity among farmers, Lithuanian and German fertiliser manufacturers were increasingly interested in the Polish market. As we had expected, the developing biofuel market in European states generated an increased interest in ammonium nitrate and ammonium sulphate, these two products belonged to the group of fertilisers with the highest growth potential.
ANWIL SA produced more fertilisers than in 2007 (approximately 990 thousand tonnes in mass).

Meanwhile, the total production of nitrogenous fertilisers among the remaining Polish producers in the reported period fell by 8%. The boom on the domestic and European fertiliser market over three quarters of 2008 influenced a high production level which in the chemical sector amounted to 1.163 mn tonnes of nitrogenous fertilisers (in mass).

Market share
In the 2007/2008 season, the chemical sector reported nearly a 19% share in the Polish market of nitrogenous fertilisers, as per nitrogen, given maximum utilisation of production capacities and an increase in fertiliser consumption in Poland. According to EFMA data, the share of the sector in the Czech nitrogenous fertiliser market in the 2007/2008 season amounted to approximately 7%, as per nitrogen.

Investments
A major investment project which was completed and put to operation in December 2008 was a palletisation unit. Palletisation improves logistic processes and significantly facilitates unloading of products by final recipients.
