In the first half of January, the price of Ulexite exhibited a firm rising trend in the US spot market amidst downstream agriculture and fertilizer industries showing a significant growth rate. The US manufacturers are gaining strong cost support from the hike in upstream Sulphur prices, which has imposed a notable impact on the US-based fertilizers industries. Furthermore, the downstream paint and coating industry has also shown a growth in demand as the construction sector gains new projects as the economic conditions recover. The US government is planning to invest in expanding the agricultural and farming sectors, along with empowering the AI industries to support proper farming activities across the region. Furthermore, the finance for the strengthening of the Food Supply Chain Infrastructure. These factors are expected to support the growth of Ulexite prices in the long run.

The demand for feedstock Sulphur from the metal extraction and leaching mines has been on a higher edge, shifting the Sulphur price in the northward direction. This has subsequently impacted the fertilizer industries and Ulexite prices in the US spot market. The Ulexite-fertilizer industries are expected to show a notable growth rate of more than 6.0% in the next ten years as the Continual exploration and advancement initiatives aimed at formulating novel and enhanced organic components, including bio-stimulants and microbial inoculants, have the potential to stimulate innovation and foster expansion within the organic fertilizer industry. Meanwhile, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and Agricultural Marketing Service (AMS) have entered a cooperative agreement with Pennsylvania to spend a total expense of USD 26 million to build resilience across the middle of the supply chain, under the Resilient Food Systems Infrastructure Program (RFSI). This has been mentioned as a profitable market sign for Ulexite in the domestic US-based agricultural sector. Additionally, Mosaic Co., a major producer of fertilizer upstream in the USA, has also stated that the declining stock availability in the domestic warehouses for fertilizers is giving signals for a brighter outlook, hence supporting the rising price trend of Ulexite. 

Moreover, the downstream consumers of Ulexite, such as the paint and coating industries have been on a rising trend across the US spot market. The US government and local industries have signed new deals that uplift the construction and manufacturing activity, implementing a strong demand for Ulexite across the USA. Large-scale factory projects worth billions of dollars are exerting significant pressure on construction labor forces, stretching them to their limits. Several states such as Arizona, Ohio, New York, and Texas are now being counted in the construction booming states. The projects regarding the construction of special facilities for EV batteries, and semiconductor industries have been on a rising scale, backing the strong demand for Ulexite from paints and coating industries.

According to ChemAnalyst, the price of Ulexite is anticipated to grow in the upcoming months of 2024 as the demand from the downstream agricultural sector gets strong support from governmental projects and investments. Furthermore, the consumption of Ulexite will remain on a higher edge in the paint sector as the construction activity shows a bullish future market in the US region. The buyers are anticipated to place healthy orders for Ulexite as the macroeconomic factors and downstream industries show an optimistic approach in the USA spot market.
