Fertilizers market size was is estimated to register a substantial CAGR during the forecast period, 2021–2028. The growth of the market is attributed to technological innovations in the industry, coupled with the growing demand for N, P, and K and micronutrient fertilizers.

Fertilizers Market-Key Takeaways

Fertilizers refer to chemical substances which are applied on crops to increase their productivity and crop yield. It is the most successful means of improving the quality of food and fodder and increasing crop production. Essential nutrients required by the plants such as potassium, nitrogen and phosphorus for crop production are provided by fertilizers leading to rising demand for fertilizers, which is estimated to drive the market growth during the forecast period

The Covid-19 pandemic had an unpleasant impact on the fertilizers market ddue to the shortage of labor and the shutdown of a few fertilizer plants located in the integrated chemical complexes, shipments were affected and so the supply in the market; however, the government’s steps and strategies have helped to neutralised the situation. This pandemic has encouraged the key players to implement advance technologies to overcome these challenges and expand the market growth.
