Controlled Release Fertilizer Market

Controlled Release Fertilizers to Gain Traction over Conventional Fertilizers, on back of Improved Crop Efficiency

Controlled release fertilizers are more eco-friendly than conventional commercial fertilizers because they release nutrients at a slower pace, thus providing maximum nutrient retention in plants. With the global population anticipated to rise to around 10 billion by 2050, demand for food crops is set to rise at a notable rate.

Also, increased efficiency in crop farming and reduced quantities of waste due to agricultural runoff has heightened the demand for controlled release fertilizers. On the backdrop of the aforementioned factors, global controlled release fertilizers market is forecast to witness modest growth of around 5% throughout the forecast period.

Polymer Coated NPK Fertilizers to Generate Highest Revenue Share in Global Market

The fertilizer industry has been continuously facing challenges to improve product quality, so as to enhance efficiency in farming. This paves the way for the utilization of controlled release fertilizers in food crops. Nitrogen is a prominent nutrient that has been manufactured using controlled-release technology.

Owing to ease of availability and affordable pricing, nitrogen-based controlled release fertilizers have gained traction over the last decade. Furthermore, controlled release nitrogen fertilizers have sparked interest in the fertilizer landscape because of their potential N2O emission-reducing properties.

Besides, global consumption of potassium and phosphorus nutrients in food crops cannot go unnoticed and account for a significant contribution in the form of NPK coated controlled release fertilizers. This situation facilitates the growth of these fertilizers in the forecast period.
