Many farmers across the world are shifting from chemical fertilizers to organic fertilizers. Organic fertilizers are carbon-based compounds that increase the productivity and growth quality of plants. Using organic fertilizers helps ensure food produced from these fertilizers is non-toxic, safe and environmentally friendly and also ensures farms remain fertile for longer periods. Organic fertilizers play an important role in practicing sustainable organic farming by the farming community


The Business Research Company expects the global fertilizer market to grow to $250 billion in 2020. Asia was the largest region in the fertilizer market in 2016, accounting for more than a half of the market share. Asia is the largest market because of the presence of a large farming community in China and India using fertilizers.

The chart below shows the year-on-year growth of the global fertilizer market during 2016 - 2020.


According to The Business Research Company’s Chemicals Consultant, Yogesh Bathula, technology is expected to be a continued driver of market growth during this period. Areas of particular development are likely to be fertigation and foliar applications that require micro irrigation systems for dispensing water-soluble formulations of nutrients. These systems provide better control over dispersion of water-soluble fertilizers, the amount of fertilizers and water used as well as energy and labour spent on applying the fertilizers. Markets such as this one will benefit from the greater efficiencies offered by these technologies.

Agrium was the largest company in the fertilizers market with revenues of $12.2billion for 2015. Agrium plans to develop synergies through multi-faceted acquisitions and enter new markets with low cost and low-risk entry strategies and gain a foothold in regions of Africa and Eastern Europe.
