This article reports that the global fertilizer market has remained on course for expansion, according to Yara International. Furthermore, strong growth in biofuels demand and a limited rise in capacity is reinforcing a healthy supply and demand balance. Current demand fundamentals make the fertilizer industry an attractive business for strong players, according to Yara President and Chief Executive Thorleif Enger. Yara outlined new scenarios for future earnings, based on forward prices for energy and selected urea margins.
