Fertilizer Manufacturing in the US

Over the five years to 2016, the Fertilizer Manufacturing industry has experienced a high level of volatility. Industry revenue began to recover strongly from the recession, but dropped once again in 2013, as a result of a steep drop in input prices. However, as a result of increased demand, industry revenue is expected to increase in the five years to 2021.This industry primarily manufactures fertilizer products. These products contain a different mixture of the three vital nutrients essential for plant growth: nitrogen, phosphorous and potassium. The products are distributed via wholesale arrangements with third parties or, in the case of vertically integrated operations, by the manufacturer.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
