Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Liquid Fertilizer Market 2016-2020

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global liquid fertilizer market: Agrium, Haifa Chemicals, ICL, Rural Liquid Fertilisers, and Yara International.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “Rise in on-farm liquid fertilizer storage will be a key trend for market growth. There is a significant increase in the use of liquid fertilizers such as UAN, but farmers have been facing significant losses in crop production due to the delay in availability of the required quantity of liquid fertilizer. The ongoing low commodity prices and high transportation costs are also leaving the farmers with low margins. This is encouraging many farmers to store the liquid fertilizers on the farm itself. The increase in farm operations is yet another factor that is accelerating the need for liquid fertilizers and encouraging farmers to reduce their reliance on fertilizer delivery by increasing their liquid fertilizer storage capacity.”

According to the report, rising demand for biofuels will be a key driver for market growth. Consumer preference for biofuels is increasing significantly as they are seeking high fuel efficiency as well as becoming increasingly eco-conscious. The use of liquid fertilizers, especially nitrogenous liquid fertilizers, which are an important input in biofuel production, has significantly increased over the years to meet the rising energy needs. Biofuels are fuels obtained from components other than petroleum products and are mainly sourced from energy crops such as wheat, soybean, corn, rapeseed, and sugarcane. Biofuels can be classified into two categories: biodiesel and ethanol. While biodiesel is primarily made from crops such as soybeans, ethanol needs corn syrup for its preparation.

Further, the report states that growth in organic farming will be a challenge for the market. In organic farming, the use of fertilizers is typically avoided, and alternatives like green manure and compost are preferred over these fertilizers. As consumers' income levels are increasing, their dietary habits are also changing, and there is a rise in the demand for organic food. In countries such as the US, the demand for organic food is outpacing the supply, and many farmers are also considering transitioning their conventional farming practices to organic farming. A growing market for organic crops, which leads to more income for them, is discouraging some farmers from using fertilizers, directly affecting the sales of liquid fertilizers.
