Global Fertilizers & Agricultural Chemicals Manufacturing
Over much of the past decade, the Global Fertilizers and Agricultural Chemicals Manufacturing industry enjoyed moderate growth led by three main drivers: feed, food and biofuels. In 2010, fertilizer and agrochemical demand started to rebound strongly in both traditional and emerging markets, where food pressures have led to calls for higher agricultural productivity and crop yields. In the coming years, the industry's performance will hinge on strong demand growth from the United States and an expected increase in demand from emerging economies in Asia and the Americas, and new industry operations in Asia, Africa and the Middle East. Furthermore, farmers will increasingly demand industry products as agricultural production increases.
This industry formulates and prepares fertilizer products, pesticides (e.g. herbicides, insecticides and fungicides) and other agricultural chemicals (e.g. insect repellents, sheep dips, fly sprays and flea powders). Key markets serviced include the agricultural sector, households and various commercial and industrial users.
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.
