(I-BusinessNews.Com, September 29, 2021 ) The global liquid fertilizers market size is estimated to be valued at USD 2.4 billion in 2020 and is projected to reach USD 3.0 billion by 2025, recording a CAGR of 4.4%. The increase in demand for enhanced high-efficiency fertilizers, ease of use and application of liquid fertilizers, and adoption of precision farming and protected agriculture are some of the factors that are projected to drive the growth of the market.
One of the major restraints in the growth of the liquid fertilizers market is the high storage cost of liquid fertilizers, along with the high cost of installation. Liquid fertilizers are water-soluble. The cost of mixing the nutrients in the water is high, and so is the cost of transportation, as fertilizers in the liquid form require distinctive handling and storage facilities. This is hindering the growth of the market around the globe, especially in regions such as Africa and the Middle East due to the lack of awareness about the application of liquid fertilizers.
Opportunity: New emerging economies
The increasing population in world has resulted in increasing demand for food, which will lead to further increase in the consumption of fertilizers. However, the major concerns in are the pollution and contamination of soil as well as their harmful effects on humans and the environment. To combat these harmful effects, governments are emphasizing on the use of fertilizers that are less harmful to the soil. Hence, there is an increase in the rate of awareness about liquid fertilizers among farmers, especially in China and India. Manufacturers, along with NGOs, educate farmers about their potential short-term and long-term benefits.
By major compounds, the calcium ammonium nitrate (CAN) segment to be the fastest-growing segment in the market during the forecast period.
Calcium ammonium nitrate (CAN) is the most widely used nitrogen fertilizer due to its relatively high nutrient content and physical properties, such as high solubility, which helps in quickly dissolving into the soil. It contains calcium and magnesium, which help in improving the efficiency of absorbing nitrogen by the roots and reduce nitrogen losses, making the fertilization more profitable; this also protects subsoil waters against pollution by nitrogen compounds. CAN is used more in the case of acidic soils as it does not further acidify the soil. It is majorly used for wheat, barley, fruits, and vegetables. Increasing adoption of drip and sprinkler irrigation is projected to increase the demand for CAN fertilizers during the forecast period.
By mode of application, the fertigation segment is projected to be the fastest-growing segment in the liquid fertilizers market during the forecast period.
Fertigation is an agricultural technique, which includes water and fertilizer application through irrigation. This process provides an opportunity to maximize the yield and minimize environmental pollution. Moreover, through fertigation, a farmer can uniformly apply nutrients throughout the field, whenever required. This market is projected to grow due to the adoption of efficient irrigation systems globally.
South America is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period.
The market for liquid fertilizers in the South America region is projected to grow at the highest CAGR from 2020 to 2025. According to FAOSTAT, Brazil is the largest producer of agricultural products due to the availability of abundant land and rural labor force, followed by Argentina. The growth in South America is majorly attributed to by the increase in the adoption of agrochemicals and advancements in farming techniques in Brazil and Argentina with distribution channels established by global agrochemical players. Due to these factors, the market in the South America region is projected to record the highest growth from 2020 to 2025.
