The fertilizer market size will be worth around US$271.6 billion per


Tokyo, July 12 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The world fertilizer market size amounted to 207.93 billion US dollars in 2022. The growth of the agricultural sector is driven by population expansion. By 2050, the world’s population will exceed nine billion people, according to the United Nations. Additionally, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations predicts that by 2050, more than 70% of the world’s population will live in cities. Due to the lack of arable land in the world, farmers are forced to use fertilizers to increase their agricultural production. As a result, the global fertilizer market would increase throughout the forecast period owing to the increase in population. The rise of other industries, such as agriculture and horticulture, is also propelling the global fertilizer industry forward. Governments around the world are making significant investments in the development of the global fertilizer market.

Market dynamics


Rise in demand for organic fertilizers

To regain agricultural efficiency, organic fertilizers are made from natural plant remains and waste, micro-organisms, composts and animal excretions and botanical extracts. These fertilizers are long lasting and improve soil structure while promoting water and nutrient holding capacity. Organic fertilizers do not contain synthetic materials. Accordingly, the surge in demand for organic fertilizers is driving the growth and development of the global fertilizer market over the forecast period.


Strict government regulations

Like other businesses, the fertilizer industry has its own set of regulatory and other laws and rules that both accelerate and impede the growth of the global market. If these laws and guidelines are not followed by market participants, strict measures are taken against them. Thus, stringent government regulations are hampering the growth of the global fertilizer market.


Growth request high yield fertilizer

Highly effective fertilizers help to grow plants and crops efficiently and effectively. Due to the advent of new natural compounds and low-cost polymer coating technologies, the use of fertilizers with improved efficiency is increasing dramatically in the agricultural sector, especially in industrial crops. Thus, the growing demand for high efficiency fertilizers is creating lucrative opportunities for the growth of the global fertilizer market.


High handling and management cost

Liquid fertilizers are water soluble. This creates difficulties in the storage of liquid fertilizers. Moreover, installing a smart storage system also requires high costs and capital investments. As a result, the high cost of handling and management is the biggest challenge for the growth of the global fertilizer market.
