Impact Analysis of Covid-19

The complete version of the Report will include the impact of the COVID-19, and anticipated change on the future outlook of the industry, by taking into the account the political, economic, social, and technological parameters.

Sulfur coated urea is primarily used in the agriculture industry for reducing the negative effects of fertilizers such as crop burn. They are basically a controlled released of fertilizers that are manufactured by coatings hot urea by using molten sulfur polyurethane oil. These are specialized fertilizers that are coated by using polymers or waxes to release nutrients slowly. They are widely used across professional lawn care and turf, greenhouses, horticulture, golf courses, and nurseries.

The global sulphur coated urea market is projected to surpass US$ 1200 million by the end of 2027, in terms of revenue, growing at CAGR of 3.2% during the forecast period (2020 to 2027).

Drivers

The growing need for agriculture sustainability with minimized input cost and increasing crop yield is expected to augment the market growth of the sulfur coated urea. A growing population is creating demand for food which is also expected to accelerate the market growth of the sulfur coated urea. Moreover, increasing agriculture farmland around the globe has further boosted the market growth of the sulfur coated urea.

Growing concern over eutrophication due to rising use of fertilizers which results in water pollution is projected to foster the market growth of the sulfur coated urea. Sulfur coated urea is effective in reducing the negative effects of the fertilizers on aquatic life. Therefore, growing concern over eutrophication is expected to augment the market growth of the sulfur coated urea over the forecast period.

Regionally, Asia-pacific dominated the global sulphur coated urea market in 2019, reporting 45% market share in terms of revenue, followed by North America and Europe, respectively.

Market Restraints

Growing environmental concern regarding the production of urea as it leads to air pollution is expected to restrict the market growth of the sulfur coated urea. The urea pollution can lead to the production of toxins called domoic acid by ocean plants and algae.

The high cost associated with this fertilizer has limited its use on large scale agricultural production such as the production of commodity crops. This is projected to hinder the market growth of the sulfur coated urea over the forecast period.
