“Potassium chloride segment is projected be the fastest-growing, by type, during the forecast period”
One of the major drivers for the growth of the potassium chloride segment is its high nutrient concentration. The majority of crops fertilized with potassium chloride include field, horticultural, and plantation crops. It also helps to improve fruit color & flavor, increases the size of fruits, reduces the incidences of pests & diseases, and enhances storage & shipping quality. The chloride content of potassium chloride is useful for soil with low chloride content. Chloride improves yield by increasing disease resistance in crops.
“Broadcasting segment is projected be the fastest-growing, by application method, during the forecast period”
The growth of the broadcasting segment can be attributed to the fact that this method is highly used for the application of fertilizers to vegetable crops in comprehensive farm management. Use of potash fertilizers during farming helps the grower to maintain the quality of products, as potash plays a vital role in the improvement of yield. The broadcasting method of application requires fertilizers in much lesser quantities, making it an economical option for large-scale crop producers.
“Asia Pacific is projected be the fastest-growing in the potash fertilizers market during the forecast period”
The Asia Pacific region is projected to be the fastest-growing from 2017 to 2022, due to the high population in the region leading to increased demand for food grains and growth in awareness among farmers about efficient use of land through fertilizers.
