Growth Drivers and Challenges
Food security has led to favourable trade policies in agricultural sector and has extended the reach of small farmers to international food trade. To meet the overflowing demand for food across the globe, there is a strong need for chemical fertilizers in agricultural sector to produce high yield.
In 2015, the global population reached to 7.3 billion. Thus, increasing global population is creating huge demand for food which is directly affecting the consumption of chemical fertilizers in farmlands.
According to Research Nester, a huge demand for chemical fertilizers would upsurge the market growth in upcoming 5-6 years.
Advanced chemical fertilizers are catching the trends in agricultural sector; the emerging chemical fertilizers are more efficient to provide immediate nourishment particularly when it is compared to organic fertilizers. High adoption rate of these fertilizers will further up thrust the market growth.
In European countries, the use of chemical fertilizers is limited to reduce the environmental impact. Government governance over the usage of chemical fertilizers is anticipated to be a major market restraint in future.
