Global Fertilizers

Global Fertilizers

Global demand for fertilizers is projected to rise 1.4% per year to 212.1 million metric tons (nutrient basis) in 2022. Industrialization in agricultural practices and efforts to increase crop yields will promote demand growth. Increased availability of specialty fertilizer blends containing multiple nutrients and special additives will also support demand.

This report covers fertilizer demand by Nutrient, Market, Crop, and Region, along with a discussion of fertilizer trade and production. Data are given in volume terms (metric tons).

Fertilizer nutrients covered in the study include:
Nitrogen
Phosphate
Potassium

Fertilizer markets covered in the study include:
Agriculture
Commercial & Consumer

Crop fertilizers covered in the study include:
Maize
Wheat
Rice
Demand is broken out by global region.
North America
Central & South America
Western Europe
Eastern Europe
Asia/Pacific
Africa/Mideast

Scope of the Report
This Freedonia industry study analyzes the $130.8 billion global fertilizer industry. It presents historical demand data (2007, 2012, and 2017) and forecasts (2022) by nutrient (nitrogen, phosphate, and potassium), market (agriculture, commercial, and consumer), crop, and geographic region. The study also evaluates company market share and competitive analysis on industry competitors including Belaruskali, CF Industries, EuroChem, Israel Chemical, Mosaic, Nutrien, OCP, PhosAgro, Uralkali, and Yara International.
