This is an update from the report Risks and Opportunities in the Global Phosphate Rock Market. Please see figure 8 for updated data on the main sources of EU imports of phosphate rock.
The European Union (EU) is almost entirely dependent on imports of phosphate rock from the rest of the world. Trends and developments on the global phosphate rock market are putting the EU’s security of supply of phosphate rock under increasing pressure.
This report aims to increase awareness that import reliance makes Europe vulnerable to disruptions in the supply of this important commodity. It means that European food security and the agricultural sector, for which phosphate is an essential resource, are at risk. This report formulates robust strategies for the EU to adequately deal with developments on the global phosphate rock market.
