“Global complex fertilizers market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 6.5%.”
The complex fertilizers market is projected to reach a value of USD 54.32 billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 6.5% from 2017. The market is driven by factors such as the need to increase productivity, level yield, and fertilizer intensity gaps across regions, rise in awareness about soil profile and nutritional balance, backed by state support. The major restraints of the complex fertilizers market are the trend toward organic food and non-food consumption, which in turn, is driving the demand for biofertilizers.
“The incomplete complex fertilizers segment is projected to dominate the market during the forecast period.”
Incomplete complex fertilizers such as diammonium phosphate and monoammonium phosphate are the most commonly used around the globe. The segment accounted for more than 65% of the global complex fertilizers in 2016. The fertigation mode of application is preferred for complex fertilizers due to its ease of application. It is also cost-effective and time-efficient. Along with this, farmers around the globe are also shifting from traditional farming to technological farming, which in turn leads to the adoption of complex fertilizer products.
“The market for complex fertilizers for oilseed crops is projected to grow at the highest CAGR.”
The market for complex fertilizers in oilseeds is projected to be the fastest-growing between 2017 and 2022. Crops such as soybean, cottonseed, sunflower, peanuts, and canola provide basic resources for food, globally. For instance, soybean is an oilseed that has found its usage in large volumes, for feed, biofuel, and human food applications. Thus, complex fertilizers are increasingly being used for ensuring healthy crop stand and high yields.
“Asia-Pacific was the largest market in 2016 whereas South America is projected to be the fastest-growing from 2017 to 2022.”
In terms of volume, the Asia-Pacific region was the largest consumer of complex fertilizers, in 2016. The growing agricultural practices and requirement of high-quality agricultural produce are expected to drive the growth of the complex fertilizers market in this region. The demand for complex fertilizers is driven by the increase in awareness about the modern agricultural practices. Maximum growth is witnessed in countries such as China due to the rise in awareness among farmers about the impact of deficiencies in the soil. In South American countries such as Brazil and Argentina, the production rate of crops is quite high; soybean, canola, cottonseeds, and sunflower are the major crops grown in these countries and occupy maximum area under cultivation every year. Hence, farmers are focusing on increasing the use of complex fertilizers.
