Anti-caking fertilizer additives are extensively utilized for maintaining the surface area of the fertilizers produced. Most fertilizers being stored in controlled temperatures catch moisture and coagulate forming clumps. Therefore, utilization of anti-caking additives is set to thrive in the fertilizer additives market.
Silicon dioxide, iron ammonium citrate, and yellow prussiate of soda are the potent anti-caking agents used in fertilizer additives. Demand for anti-caking agents has been fluctuating since the past half-decade, owing to their negative affects on crops and end-use consumers.

COVID-19 Impact on Fertilizer Additives Market
The coronavirus pandemic has brought the whole world to a standstill. Business activities have registered a downturn in the form of dwindling sales due to reduced production and demand. The same is true for the fertilizer additives market. A prominent end use of fertilizer additives is fertilizer application. The ongoing pandemic has led to a decline in all industrial activities, in the wake of disrupted supply chains.
Extended lockdowns across countries have nullified the production of fertilizer additives for the past few months, as key manufacturing units and factories are shut. Even after these lockdowns are lifted, it will take at least a couple of quarters to restore production to normal. Thus, contracting demand from allied industries in the second quarter of 2020 will have prolonged effects on the global fertilizer additives market.
