Global Water Soluble Fertilizers Market

Description

The global water soluble fertilizers market is estimated to be valued at US$ 11.3 Bn in 2017 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.5% over the forecast period. The water soluble fertilizers market size and consumption in North America, Latin America, Europe and Asia Pacific is covered in the report.

In the year 2017, North America is estimated to have a 44.7% market share in the global water soluble fertilizers market followed by Europe (40.6%), Asia Pacific (10.2%) and Latin America.

Water soluble fertilizers are those types of fertilizers that are completely soluble in water, with a high level of purity and no (or very negligible) amounts of inert matter. Water soluble fertilizers are primarily delivered to plants in two methods – foliar and fertigation.

Water soluble fertilizers are available as either soluble powders (granular) or as liquids. They mostly consist of Nitrogen, Phosphate (P2O5) and Potash (K20) as primary nutrients but also include products that deliver primary nutrients (N, P, K) in other formulations such as sulphates and nitrates. Most water soluble fertilizers also consist of added secondary and micronutrients such as Magnesium, Zinc, Iron, Calcium, Manganese and Boron.

Water Soluble Fertilizers Market Segmentation

The market has been segmented on the basis of crop type, mode of application, product type and product form.

  • Water Soluble Fertilizers Product Type: Straights, NPK Blends, NPK Blends High Quality (presence of micronutrients), and NPK Blends High Quality +
  • Product Form: Solid, Liquid Fertilizers
  • Crop Type: Fruits, Vegetables & Melons (FVM), Horticulture, Turf and Landscape, Industrial Crops, and Food Crops
  • Mode of Application: Foliar and Fertigation

Key Impact Factors

The water soluble fertilizers market in a particular region or country is influenced by several macro factors such as:

  • Global Crop Production & Yield Statistics
  • Agriculture Producer Price Index
  • Net Agriculture Production Values
  • Fertilizer Use Per Hectare Cropland
  • Fertilizer Nutrients Demand

Demand Drivers

  • Meat & Dairy Consumption: Modern farms, which employ efficient production components such as water soluble fertilizers, are an ideal source for efficient feed inputs. Integration and penetration of fertigated farmlands into the meat supply chain is an inevitable phenomenon.
  • Growth in Fertigation: Fertigation is an agro-technique wherein crops are supplied with fertilizers through irrigation systems. Although there are several types of irrigation systems, fertigation generally refers to irrigation that delivers nutrients to the plant roots. Drip irrigation is the dominant type of fertigation system. The key advantages of using fertigation is the control the cultivator gets over input variables such as nutrient concentrations, dosage timings and frequency of application.
  • Soluble Fertilizers – Increase in Profitability and Yield: The primary attributes of water soluble fertilizers are the increased nutrient uptake, quick results, increased yield and profitability.
  • Energy Prices and Bioethanol Production: It is estimated that over 90% of ammonia production costs (cash) are due to natural gas. Therefore, any changes in energy prices have a direct result on the fertilizer industry. It is estimated that nearly 3% of global nitrogen consumption in the year 2013 was used in biofuel crops. Therefore, the growth in biofuel production has a net positive impact on nitrogen consumption.

Government Schemes and Support

Similar to other agricultural inputs, fertilizers are also significantly dependent on government subsidies and support. This support often takes the form of reduced retail prices, lowered import tariffs, last-mile retail distribution support, introduction of new products, awareness campaigns, research project funding, and in some cases direct cash transfers to end–users (farmers). The approach a country or region takes is dependent on the broader policy and strategic goals adopted by it.

China is aiming to drastically reduce usage of chemical fertilizers and pesticides by the year 2020. In view of this, they attached a 1% annual growth rate cap for chemical fertilizers in the country. This is expected to increase the adoption of organic fertilizers.

Pricing Analysis

China produces water soluble fertilizers at very low costs due to several factors such as – Poor Quality when compared to western products, Extensive use of coal as an energy source thereby escaping from natural gas price fluctuations, access to cheaper raw materials, low labor costs, lack of product specialization and negligible R&D spending. Such low prices can impact the sales of global brands in price sensitive countries such as India and ASEAN region.

Key Players

The major water soluble fertilizer manufacturing companies covered in the report include: Sociedad Química y Minera de Chile (SQM), Yara International ASA, Israel Chemicals Limited, KEMAPCO Arab Fertilizers & Chemicals Industries LTD, Coromandel International Limited, Haifa Chemicals, Timac Agro International, GreenHas Italia, Miller Chemical and Fertilizers, SIRIAC ITALY, CIFO ITALY, and CTS Group – Agrica.
