Major players in the phosphate fertilizer market are Agrium Inc, Israel Chemicals Limited, CF Industries Holdings Inc., Coromandel International Ltd., Nutrien Ltd., PhosAgro, , Yara International ASA, EuroChem Group A, The Mosaic Company and OCP S.A.

The global phosphate fertilizer market is expected to grow from $33.77 billion in 2020 to $36.48 billion in 2021 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 8%. The growth is mainly due to the companies rearranging their operations and recovering from the COVID-19 impact, which had earlier led to restrictive containment measures involving social distancing, remote working, and the closure of commercial activities that resulted in operational challenges. The market is expected to reach $39.6 billion in 2025 at a CAGR of 2%.

The phosphate fertilizer market consists of sales of phosphate fertilizers.Phosphate fertilizer manufacturers produce phosphatic fertilizer materials and other phosphatic materials and mix them into fertilizers.

Ammonium phosphate, defluorinated phosphate, and di-ammonium phosphate are examples of the phosphate fertilizer segment.

World population is growing and is expected to reach 10 billion by 2050 and is expected to significantly boost the insecticides market.Increase in population creates more demand for food.

Crop production, farming activities and trade volumes will have to increase in order to meet increased population.Additionally, farmers and commercial farming companies will increase acquisitions in arable land to increase crop production, which is expected to increase the demand for herbicides.

In order to meet the food demand that may rise from 59% to 98%, farmers have to increase agricultural productivity through fertilizers and advanced technologies in farming. Thus, the increase in demand for food for the growing population will promote the growth of insecticides market.

Most of the phosphorus is derived from the rock phosphate.The phosphate rock is a non-renewable source and it has taken millions of years for formation from seabed to soil through tectonic uplift and weathering.

The growing demand for phosphorus is depleting its source.According to Global Phosphorus Research Initiative (GPRI), the phosphorus production would be at peak stages in the year 2033 and it will rapidly decrease in coming years due to its depletion in reserves.

Thus, the scarcity of rock phosphate is limiting the growth of phosphorus fertilizers.

The phosphate fertilizer market covered in this report is segmented by type into monoammonium phosphate (MAP), diammonium phosphate (DAP), superphosphate, others. It is also segmented by application into cereals & grains, oilseeds, fruits & vegetables, others.

There has been a rapid increase in production and exports of phosphates from China.In the past, there was limited supply of phosphate rock due to limited production capacity and monopolistic pricing in most countries but, over the past few years there has been a rapid increase in phosphate production in China.

For example, in 2019, China exported 880,000 tons of diammonium phosphate (DAP), up by 5.4% from 2018. Therefore, increase production of phosphate is expected to drive the phosphate fertilizers market during the period.

In August 2019, Ma’aden, a Saudi Arabia-based mining and metallurgical company that specializes in gold mining, refining, phosphate mining and aluminum mining acquired Meridian Group for $140 million.The acquisition is expected to help Ma’aden in strengthening its position as the world’s largest producer and exporter of phosphate fertilizers and enhance its contribution in the global food security.

The acquisition also helps Ma’aden with logistics asset in South East Africa through Meridian’s operations in Malawi, Mozambique, Zambia and Zimbabwe. Meridian Group is a Mauritius-based fertilizer company that specializes in fertilizer manufacturing and distribution such as ammonium phosphate.
