Nitrogenous Fertilizers Market by Type (Urea, Ammonium Nitrate, Ammonium Sulfate, and Calcium Ammonium Nitrate), Form (Liquid and Dry), Mode of Application (Soil, Foliar, and Fertigation), Crop Type, and Region - Global Forecast to 2022

“Global nitrogenous fertilizers market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 2.33%”
The nitrogenous fertilizers market is projected to reach a value of USD 127.0 billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 2.33% from 2016. The market is driven by factors such as need to increase productivity and level yield and fertilizer intensity gaps across regions, rise in awareness regarding soil profile, and nutritional balance backed by state support.

“The urea segment is projected to dominate the market during the forecast period”
Urea is the most commonly used nitrogenous fertilizer around the globe. The segment accounted for more than 60% of the global nitrogenous fertilizers in 2015. Since the last decade, urea has emerged as a substitute for ammonium nitrate and is used widely as farmers have identified it as economical and easy to use.

“The fertigation mode of application is projected to be the fastest-growing from 2016 to 2022”
The fertigation mode of application is preferred for nitrogenous fertilizers due to its ease of application. It is also cost-effective and time efficient. Along with this, farmers around the globe are also shifting from traditional farming to technological farming, which in turn leads to the adoption of fertigation as a mode of application. This is few of the major reasons increasing the use of fertigation mode of amongst the farmers which is driving the market for nitrogenous fertilizers.

“Asia-Pacific was the largest market in 2015 whereas, South America is projected to be the fastest-growing from 2016 to 2022”
The Asia-Pacific region is the largest consumer of nitrogenous fertilizers, with a market share of more than 63% in 2015. The growing agricultural practices and requirement of high-quality agricultural produce are expected to drive the nitrogenous fertilizers market growth in this region. The demand for nitrogenous fertilizers is driven by the increase in awareness about the modern agricultural practices. Maximum growth is witnessed in countries such as China due to the rise in awareness among the farmers about the impact of deficiencies in soil.
