Market Insights

Fertilizers are used as the most important input after seeds as they help in increasing the agricultural production. Fertilizer production and consumption has increased over time due to land scarcity and increased demand for agricultural products. India is one of the largest consumers of chemical fertilizers in the world. The fertilizers market in India is expected to reach a market value of USD XX in 2022 from USD 27.1 billion in 2016, growing at a CAGR of XX%.
