The basic plant nutrients used for a better crop yield are phosphate, nitrogen, and potassium. Nitrogen is the most widely used nutrient as fertilizer after phosphate and potash. These elements are crucial for agricultural outputs as they help in improving water retention, nutrient value, color, texture, yield, disease resistance, and various other properties. These nutrients find extensive applications base in several crops such as rice, wheat, soybeans, palm, cotton, grains, corn, sugar, fruits, and vegetables.

Competitive vendor landscape

The global market for water-soluble fertilizers is highly fragmented, characterized by the occurrence of expanded regional and international corporations owing to the prevalent accessibility of natural gas. Nevertheless, as international corporations have increased their predominance in the market, regional corporations are finding it extremely difficult to compete with them, especially in terms of technology, quality, and pricing.

Vendors with better financial and technical resources can progress with innovative products that render competitors’ merchandise non-competitive even before they are launched, or before they can recover the research and development and commercialization costs,” says Ajay Adikhari, a lead agrochemicals and fertilizers analyst from Technavio.

The market is dominated by leading global players. Nonetheless, there are several domestic and foreign players with comparatively smaller market shares. Many global players are projected to enlarge their presence at the global level during the forecast period. In addition, improvements in global economic conditions are boosting the growth of the market, making it an attractive time to launch new products.
