Controlled release fertilizers are the special typeof fertilizers which are coated organically or inorganically to control the rate, duration and pattern of the release of the nutrients. They have long-term effects on soil because of availability to the plant for a longer period of time due to the coating on them.They are basically nitrogen products decomposed by microbes.Controlled release fertilizers are mostly used in agriculture and horticulture applications.These products help to regulate the nutrient levels through the entire plant’s growth cycle.

Controlled release fertilizers offer several advantages over the conventional fertilizers. They reduce toxicity to seedlings and contribute to enhanced agronomic safety. They efficiently increase the nutrient availability for the plant by reducing the nutrient loss to the environment. They play a key role in improving yield and simplifying fertilizer application.

Market Dynamics

One of the major factor driving the growth of the global controlled release fertilizer market is the ever-increasing world population. The other factors driving the market are increasing demand for high-efficiency fertilizers,food security issues, environment-friendly operations, government initiatives and shrinking farmland. The adoption of these fertilizers is increasing globally due to the growing awareness about the benefits associated with coated fertilizers.
The rise in export quality requirements for agricultural products and increasing adoption of sustainable agriculture practices in various countries are expected to drive the demand for controlled-release fertilizers among the farmers.


Some of the restraining factors for the market are high production cost and complexity due to special polymer coatings,storage limitations,salt accumulation in soil,regulatory, and environmental constraints.Conventional fertilizers have already captured a major of the market share due to easy production practicesand ease of availability. Thus, the comparison with conventional fertilizers such as urea and NPK fertilizers and the unpopularity of the products in economically developing and under-developed countries may also act as the obstacle to the market growth.
