Agriculture Micronutrient Market by Type (Zinc, Manganese, Boron, Copper, Molybdenum, Iron), Form (Chelated & Non Chelated), Application Mode (Soil, Foliar, Fertigation), Crop Type, & by Region - Global Trends and Forecast to 2020

Agriculture Micronutrient Market by Type (Zinc, Manganese, Boron, Copper, Molybdenum, Iron), Form (Chelated & Non Chelated), Application Mode (Soil, Foliar, Fertigation), Crop Type, & by Region - Global Trends and Forecast to 2020

The agricultural micronutrients market has grown exponentially in the last few years and this trend is projected to continue. The market was estimated at $4.8 billion in 2014 and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 8.1% from 2015 to 2020; the market is projected to reach $7.6 billion by 2020. The market is primarily driven by the increasing demand for food in tandem with the growing disposable income, rising standards in agricultural farming, and decreasing use of macronutrients in agriculture. The world population is increasing significantly, whereas arable land is decreasing continually; but to feed the growing population with limited arable land, productivity must improve. Agricultural micronutrients provide essential nutrients to crops to deliver enhanced yields and superior products.

The Asia-Pacific region accounted for the largest share of the agricultural micronutrients market in 2014, and is also projected to be the fastest-growing market, at a CAGR of 8.3% between 2015 and 2020. The region is projected to be the emerging revenue-generating pocket for market players

In this report, the agricultural micronutrients market has broadly been segmented on the basis of type, form, application mode, crop type, and region. The agricultural micronutrients market is marked with intense competition due to the presence of a large number of both large- and small-scale firms. Numerous manufacturers, mainly small- to medium-sized, exist worldwide and have been producing inoculant products similar in quality and quantity for decades. Expansions, acquisitions, agreements, and new product developments are the key strategies adopted by market players in order to ensure their growth in the market. The market is dominated by players such as AkzoNobel (The Netherlands), Yara International Ltd (Norway), BASF SE (Germany), Agrium Inc. (Canada), and Auriga Industries Ltd (Denmark) in terms of developments between 2010 and January 2015.
