Report Description

Water-Soluble Fertilizers Market
Water-Soluble Fertilizers Market

The global water-soluble fertilizers market is expected to grow at a significant rate of around 6% during the forecast period. These fertilizers are easily absorbed by plants because they dissolve in water. Water soluble fertilizers, whose nutrient levels are unaffected by erosion and leaching, make nutrition management simple. Through Fertigation, they can be applied quickly and easily, and they are the most important component of cutting-edge agricultural systems like drip irrigation and hydroponics.

Moreover, the high efficiency of these fertilizers, the rising demand for nutritional food, environmental concerns, and the growing demand for the supply of food for a rapidly growing population followed by the demand for an increase in productivity and income of farmers are the major factors for the growth of the market during the forecast period. For instance, according to the world bank, the global population growth rate increased by 0.9% and the worldwide population is around 7.8 billion which will propel the growth of the water-soluble fertilizers market during the forecast period.

Nutrien Ltd., Yara, ICL, Haifa Chemicals, Mosaic, Coromandel International Limited, K+S ktiengesellschaft, SQM S.A., TATA Chemicals Ltd., OAFCO. are some of the key players in the market. Several M&As along with partnerships have been undertaken by these players to facilitate customers with hi-tech and innovative products/technologies.

Insights Presented in the Report

“Amongst type, nitrogenous category to witness robust CAGR during the forecast period”

Based on type, the market is segmented into nitrogenous, phosphatic, potassic, and others. The nitrogenous category is to witness higher CAGR during the forecast period owing to its high application in grains & oilseeds. Nitrogen is considered the most critical nutrient for adequate crop growth because it provides better color & texture to the plants.

Furthermore, the use of phosphate fertilizers in various types of crops promotes root growth, improves quality, and enhances stem strength. Additionally, the increasing consumption of cereals and grains, such as rice, wheat, rye, corn, oats, sorghum, and barley, across the globe is driving the demand for phosphate fertilizer in this segment.

“Amongst application, the foliar to hold a significant share in the market in 2020”

Based on the application, the market is categorized into foliar and fertigation. Among these, the foliar category is to hold a significant share of the market in 2020. Owing to its applications such as it increases consumption of nutrients & water from the soil, additionally provide several benefits to the plant suffering from a deficiency. Furthermore, rising product development and investment in the fertilizer industry will boost the growth of the water-soluble fertilizer market during the forecast period. For instance, in 2019, Yara North America launched YaraVita OptimumTurf, a foliar nutrition line specifically designed for the turf and ornamental industry. YaraVita OptimumTurf includes eight products that each deliver a specific nutrient or nutrient mix for efficiently sustaining turfgrass and plant health, thus, boosting performance, durability, and aesthetics.

“APAC to hold a significant share in the market”

For a better understanding of the market adoption of the water-soluble fertilizers market, the market is analyzed based on its worldwide presence in the countries such as North America (U.S., Canada, Rest of North America), Europe (Germany, U.K., France, Spain, Italy, Rest of Europe), Asia-Pacific (China, Japan, India, Rest of Asia-Pacific), Rest of World. The rise in the agriculture sector of the Asia-Pacific region helped the region to obtain a dominating position in the market. Regional demand for water-soluble fertilizer due to agricultural consumption is needed in order to feed the growing and already higher population. Additionally, in countries, such as India and other southeast Asian countries, the arable land per person is decreasing at an alarming rate as the population is increasing and due to pollution and climatic conditions, the health of plants and crops is reducing thereby, increasing the utilization of water-soluble fertilizers in the region to increase the average crop yields per hectare.
