Fertilizers are either organic or non-organic material that is in granular form or in liquid form and are used to stimulate growth of plants/crops. Three main ingredients in the fertilizers support growth of crops are nitrogen (N), potassium (K), and phosphorous (P). In fertilizer mixtures, one or two fertilizers are mixed together, which contain major elements such as K2O, N, and P2O5. They are also called mixed fertilizers. Fertilizer mixtures are classified as closed formula fertilizer mixture and open formula fertilizer mixture. Some fertilizer mixture also includes nitrate, phosphate, and diammonium hydrogen orthophosphate in it. Such fertilizers find applications in various crops including cotton, sugarcane, vegetables, fruits, and oilseeds.
Global fertilizer mixtures market size is expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period (2019-2027), owing to increasing demand for food across the globe. Changing eating habits, increasing population, and growing health concern is expected to boost the demand for food, subsequently driving the market growth. Furthermore, farmers are looking to provide valuable nutrients to crops, essential for their growth and yield. In fact, fertilizers mixtures help to reduce the residual acidity of plants and enhance the crop yield, which is increasing the demand for fertilizer mixtures. Moreover, fertilizer mixtures are better for application as they have a better physical condition.
However, higher cost of fertilizer mixtures as compared to straight fertilizers is expected to hinder the global fertilizer mixtures market growth. Moreover, fertilizer mixtures are not useful if crop is required only one nutrient, which is negatively affecting the market growth.
