Global Liquid Fertilizers Market Dynamics

Liquid fertilizers are the most efficient way of delivering the required nutrients to plants at the correct time and in optimal concentration. Some of the major factors driving the market are the demand for increased crop yield to feed the expanding population, need for high-efficiency organic fertilizers, easy usage and application of liquid fertilizers and adoption of sustainable agricultural practices by farmers. Restrictions in the supply chain, increasing concerns over health and environmental degradation, the high cost of handling and storage, inadequate awareness among the farmers and strict regulatory framework are some of the restraints of the market. Major opportunities for market growth lie in the emerging economies of the developing countries.

Global Liquid Fertilizers Market Segmentation

Based on the nutrient type the market is segmented into nitrogen, potassium, phosphate and micronutrients

On basis of the major ingredients, the organic liquid fertilizers are expected to grow at a faster pace than the synthetic fertilizers. The foliar application of liquid fertilizers is the most commonly used method as it helps in neutralizing soil conditions, enhance plant growth, and increase the rate of nutrient absorption as compared to the other methods of fertilizer application.

Asia-Pacific is the largest and fastest growing market due to its increasing population, growing economy and extensive support from government and other agencies to maximize agricultural production to meet food demands. North America is the second largest liquid fertilizer market followed by Europe and South America
