Global Fertilizers & Agricultural Chemicals Manufacturing
In the years leading up to the reporting period, fertilizer and agrochemical demand increased in both traditional and emerging markets, where food pressures have led to calls for higher agricultural productivity and crop yields. However, around 2014, weakening demand from emerging markets has put downward pressure on the prices of a variety of agricultural commodities, dampening demand for industry products at the same time that global supply of fertilizers and other chemicals was rising. Consequently, fertilizer prices have fallen steeply during the reporting period, and industry revenue is forecast to decline. Over the next five years, the industry's performance will hinge on demand growth from the United States, an expected increase in demand from emerging economies in Asia and the Americas and new industry operations in Asia, Africa and the Middle East.
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.
