Key Market Trends

Increase in Demand for High Efficiency Fertilizers

From the perspective of the world population reaching more than 9 billion by 2050, and the need to alleviate persistent hunger, nutrient management shall ensure the continuous increase in agricultural production. The need to improve food security has strongly influenced the demand for high-efficiency fertilizers over the years. Moreover, future demand is likely to be driven by a broader set of considerations, including the need to reduce the environmental impacts of nutrient losses. The yield and production of cereals and fruits have grown at comparatively higher rates when compared to the area under cultivation indicating a higher adoption rate of high-efficiency fertilizers. International Fertilizer Association (IFA) anticipates that in the next five years, world liquid fertilizer demand is likely to increase by 1.5% per year with a significant increase in the North America region as well.

United States Dominates The Market

Liquid fertilizers hold the largest share of consumption in the US within the North American region. More than one-fourth of the fertilizers used in the United States are liquid fertilizers.

The major market drivers in the US are the easy application and the availability of large wagons to fill liquid fertilizers. Additionally, the high adoption of precision agriculture technology is driving the market growth, as the use of variable rate technology (VRT) requires the use of liquid fertilizers. Around 77% of VRT farming use fertilizers, however, the adoption of VRT farming for pesticides and seeds is quite low, estimated to be 11% and 7%, respectively. Among the fertilizers used in VRT, lime-based fertilizers have the largest share, followed by single nutrient and multiple nutrient fertilizers.
