Industry Trends 

Specialty fertilizers are the granular fertilizers which enhances the quality of available plant supplements and the chemical and physical attributes of the soil, which directly or indirectly aids in the plant growth, yield, and quality. Specialty fertilizers are successfully used in vegetable crops with well-developed root system and the soil application of the fertilizers effect on rapid improvement of plant nutrition.

They are considered as a source of nutrients after plant growth regulators, herbicides and pesticides to achieve crop productivity. Specialty fertilizers restrict the amount of moisture contact and help gradually release fertilizer nutrients, usually over a few weeks or a few months.

Three main soil supplements required are nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P) and potassium (K). These fertilizer components help in increasing the sturdiness and quality of the horticultural land.

In terms of revenue, the specialty fertilizers market was valued at US$ 16.05 Bn in 2017 and is expected to reach US$ 22.15 Bn by 2022.
