Industry Insights

[210+ Pages Report] According to Facts and Factors, the global nitrogenous fertilizer market was valued at USD 58.03 billion in 2021 and is predicted to increase at a CAGR of 4.05% to USD 74.90 billion by 2028. The study examines the market in terms of revenue in each of the main regions, which are classified into countries.

logoMarket Overview

One of the most important elements for plant growth is nitrogen. It exists naturally in the environment, but only a few plants can absorb it. As a result, it is provided to plants synthetically in the form of nitrogenous fertilizers. On the global market, urea, ammonia, ammonium sulfate, calcium ammonium nitrate, and a few other nitrogenous fertilizers are available in various nutritional value proportions. Nitrogenous fertilizers are commonly used in agricultural products like fruits, vegetables, cereals, and cotton. Crop production levels are heavily influenced by climate changes, which in turn alter crop demand and supply according to season. Fertilizers are essential components in agricultural methods that help crops grow faster.

The demand for nitrogenous fertilizers has been increasing in the agriculture business in order to supply optimum nutrition to food crops and hence increase yield. The use of nitrogenous fertilizers in agricultural production is becoming increasingly important in emerging economies around the world. Farmers in underdeveloped countries are learning more about how to handle chemicals correctly. Local businesses are also involved in offering sales services for technologies and crop nutrient requirements.

The world's growing population and shrinking arable land are two of the primary factors driving the market growth. Another key growth-inducing aspect is the establishment of favorable government policies encouraging the use of sophisticated fertilizers for increased yield. The expanding usage of these fertilizers for improved soil fertility and increased yield of crops such as corn, rice, and sugarcane has resulted in a large increase in crop demand to meet the fast-increasing global population. Furthermore, the scarcity of arable land as a result of increasing urbanization and industrialization is increasing the use of these fertilizers to maximize productivity. Other factors, such as rising demand for grain-based biofuels and intensive research and development (R&D) operations to develop more efficient and environmentally friendly variations, are expected to boost the market's prospects.

logoImpact of COVID – 19

COVID-19 has had an impact on all of the processes that connect all of the operations and link farm products to final consumers. Agricultural inputs such as fertilizer, seed, and insecticides have been in short supply for farmers. China is one of the world's largest fertilizer manufacturers and exporters. The Chinese embargo had a significant impact on the international fertilizer trade. When China's lockdown began, it had a significant impact in terms of production reduction due to manpower shortages and transportation issues, resulting in stockpiling. Prices are at an all-time low, stockpiles are huge, and demand in producing countries is uncertain.

The complete research study looks at both the qualitative and quantitative aspects of the Nitrogenous Fertilizer market. Both the demand and supply sides of the market have been investigated. The demand side study examines market income in various regions before comparing it to all of the major countries. The supply-side research examines the industry's top rivals, as well as their regional and global presence and strategies. Each major country in North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, the Middle East and Africa, and Latin America is thoroughly investigated.

logoSegmentation Analysis

The global Nitrogenous Fertilizer market is segregated based on crop type, application, and form.

Based on the crop type, the cereals and grains segment made up the majority of income. This is due to the extreme care that these crops require in order to produce high yields and maximize profitability for farmers and the agriculture industry as a whole. For cereals and grains, nitrogenous fertilizers such as anhydrous ammonia, ammonium nitrate, and urea are chosen since the required quantity of these nitrogenous fertilizers is smaller to assure an adequate supply of nitrogen for maximum plant growth. The oilseeds and pulses segment was the second-largest application segment, with the highest revenue CAGR expected throughout the forecast period. This can be attributable to the need to increase seed germination rates and ensure the optimal formation of dense pulse canopies.

Based on the form, the liquid segment dominates the market over the forecast period. In comparison to liquid nitrogenous fertilizers, dry nitrogenous fertilizers are commonly employed because they are readily available and inexpensive. Besides that, farmers are becoming more aware of the benefits of liquid nitrogenous fertilizers, such as their stability and increased effectiveness for crop absorption. As a result, demand for liquid nitrogenous fertilizers has increased.

logoRegional Landscape

The market was dominated by the Asia Pacific, which accounted for the majority of revenue. This is due to the vast amount of cultivable land available, the large rural population, and favorable climatic conditions. Due to rising demand and a greater emphasis on food security, major global nitrogen fertilizer manufacturers have established manufacturing facilities in Asian countries.

China is the world's largest nitrogen fertilizer consumer, accounting for one-third of global consumption. These fertilizers significantly contribute to the country's food security by allowing for significant increases in grain and non-grain yields. Rice, wheat, barley, millets, soybeans, tomatoes, potatoes, peanuts, tea, and cotton are the country's main crops.
