The global fertilizer market size reached US$ 170.4 Billion in 2022. Looking forward, the analyst expects the market to reach US$ 210.0 Billion by 2028, exhibiting a growth rate (CAGR) of 3.7% during 2023-2028. The increasing utilization of biofertilizers to reduce the accumulation of chemical residues in agricultural products, rising adoption of veganism, and the growing consumption of fruits, seeds, and nuts to prevent the occurrence of chronic diseases represent some of the key factors driving the market.
Fertilizers refer to chemical agents added to the soil to improve the growth of plants and increase crop yield. They comprise various inorganic and organic substances, agricultural wastes, animal manure, compost, and humic substances (HS) produced by microorganisms. They impart positive effects on the physiology of plants, improve soil structure, and neutralize acidic and alkaline soils. They are soluble in water and can be easily absorbed by plants through various physiological processes. They also add nitrogen and phosphorus in the soil, which help plants in conducting photosynthesis and amino acid synthesis and boosting cell growth. They facilitate the development of strong roots and increase the water-holding capacity of plants. Fertilizers retain the basic functioning of various essential biochemical procedures and improve the disease-resistance capacity of plants. They also prevent numerous complications caused by nutrient deficiency in plants, such as chlorosis, necrosis, premature falling of leaves, delay in flowering, and cell division inhibition. As fertilizers enhance the quality of crops for producing better harvests, the demand for fertilizers is rising around the world.
Fertilizer Market Trends:
At present, the increasing production of crops due to the surging population across the globe represents one of the key factors influencing the market positively. Besides this, the rising adoption of organic farming to produce good quality crops and avoid the utilization of artificial ingredients, hormones, pesticides, and antibiotics is propelling the growth of the market. In addition, the increasing awareness about the contamination of water bodies and the destruction of marine life from synthetic chemicals is contributing to the growth of the market. Apart from this, the rising consumption of fruits, vegetables, seeds, and nuts to stay healthy and prevent the occurrence of chronic lifestyle disorders, such as diabetes, obesity, hypertension, stroke, and thyroiditis, is supporting the market growth. Additionally, governing agencies of various countries are promoting the utilization of biofertilizers to prevent the accumulation of chemical residues in agricultural products and minimize farming expenses. Moreover, the growing consumption of vegetables, plant-based meats, and non-dairy milk due to the rising adoption of veganism is offering a favorable market outlook. Furthermore, key market players are utilizing waste heat and fuel gases to operate fertilizer production plants sustainably and employ green ammonia to minimize carbon emissions, which is bolstering the market growth.
