According to the Food and Agriculture Organization, more than 70% of the world's population will live in cities with aid by 2050. Farmers are being pressured to use fertilizers to beautify their agricultural output due to a loss of arable land throughout the globe. Nitrogen is some of the crucial nutrients necessary for the growth of plants. It is naturally accessible in the atmosphere, although, very few florae are capable to soak up it. Thus, it is synthetically supplied to the vegetation in the structure of nitrogenous fertilizers. The product is offered in the international market in more than a few types including calcium ammonium nitrate, ammonium sulfate, ammonia, and others, with exceptional proportions of the nutrient values. The aforementioned merchandise assists to adjust the boom of the plants for quicker yield and also supply a better texture.

COVID-19 impact on Dry Fertilizer Market

Since the outbreak of COVID-19, the fertilizer industry has been considerably impacted in many components of the world. During the initial lockdown, shipments were disrupted due to labor scarcity and the closure of a few fertilizer plant life located in integrated chemical complexes.

China, as the pandemic's epicenter, used to be severely impacted at first. However, the country's prerequisites have stabilized, and fertilizer production costs have accelerated throughout the board. As a result, the ordinary effect of COVID-19 on the fertilizer industry is viewed as moderate.

Travel restrictions resulted in fertilizer stockpiling. Hubei, a Chinese province, is the leading producer of phosphoric acid and phosphate.


The growing uptake of Organic Fertilizer is driving the growth of the Market

The agriculture industry is limiting the use of chemical fertilizers and is steadily embracing natural and biofertilizers globally to motivate no longer solely plant increase but also soil health. These are also referred to as "soil conditioners" made from plant or animal waste due to their capability to maintain water and nutrients for a long time. In addition, natural fertilizers are much less harmful, quickly decomposed, reusable, secure, and environmentally pleasant, and can be stored for a longer duration of time due to their capability to stand up to temperatures of up to forty-five stages Celsius or more.

Regular research and development in this sector will increase the market growth

Major fertilizer suppliers are growing their R&D spending due to stringent regulations and product complexities considering that sales of fertilizer products vary depending on the climatic conditions and crop variance. In addition, main suppliers are introducing more recent technologies at their production plants in order to make bigger capacity and limit manufacturing costs.


High cost related to the products is restraining the growth of the market

The fertilizer prices of all three, inclusive of ammonia, DAP, and potash, accelerated on the back of tight grants and strong demand in 2018 over unique periods. In the 1/3 quarter of 2018, the expenditures of ammonia elevated at the return of countless plant changes, ensuing in a tight supply. Further, potash fees remained firm in the second quarter of 2019 on the lower back of commonly provided tightness. The current scenario of fertilizers had indicated higher fees in 2019 as the production costs of ammonia, DAP and potash have accelerated 2019.
