  • Country: Global
Nitrogen, Phosphorus and Potassium are three micronutrients which are needed in large quantities by all plants for their growth. If they are not present in sufficient quantities in the soil, then it will limit the growth of the plants. This is where fertilizers come into picture. Fertilizers are natural or artificial materials which supply one or all of nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium to the plants to facilitate their growth.

Market Dynamics

The Global Fertilizers Market is very fragmented and factors like awareness among farmers, credit terms and crop yield play a major role in increasing demand for fertilizers. In this market, there is little to no differentiation in the products, the fixed costs are very high and the switching costs are very low leading to a very competitive market. Factors like increasing population, global economic growth, awareness on importance of nutritious diets, agriculture sector global potential and prices of input raw materials are the driving force behind the growth of the global fertilizers industry. Rising demand for new types of fertilizers like micronutrient and bio-based fertilizers, global food security concerns and demand for greater productivity are also driving the growth of this market. The factors constraining the growth of the market are high research and development costs, increasing regulations around the world, higher production costs for fertilizers, growing environmental concerns, low prices of crops and limited access to credit and input markets.
