Key Market Trends

Field Crops is the largest segment by Crop Type.

Field crop fertilizers in the country accounted for 91.37% of the market in 2021 and are anticipated to expand at a CAGR of 5.13% over the course of the forecast period. Rice is the most common field crop cultivated in the country, with 47 million hectares planted in 2021, a 93.1% increase from 2017. Rice is a major NPK-consuming crop that is expected to drive the nation’s fertilizer demand.

The area under field crops increased from 187 million hectares in 2017 to 194 million hectares by 2021. Among field crops, cereals have been contributing to a major part of total field crop acreage. Hence, the increased demand for field crops to feed the growing population is anticipated to boost the Indian fertilizer market during the forecast period.

Horticultural crop fertilizer market value accounted for 8.5% of the Indian fertilizer market in 2021 and increased by 52.8% during the study period. The area under horticulture cultivation in 2017 was 8.6 million hectares, and 8.9 million hectares in 2021.
