Growing Demand for Bio-Based Fertilizers Drives the Market
Bio-based fertilizers can possibly fulfill crop requirements including nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, etc. They are viewed as the future of fertilizers, as they have the ability to solve the problems of salinity of the soil and the chemical-run offs from fields. Excess use of chemical fertilizers has led to the pollution and contamination of the soil. Bio-based nitrogenous fertilizers have solved this issue, as they are comparatively low on cost inputs and are light on the pockets of the farmers and they help in increasing the crop yield by 10-25%.
Nitrogenous fertilizers provide enough nutrient support to the crop and play a vital role in increasing productivity. Farmers from almost all the regions have adopted nitrogenous fertilizers rapidly for higher production and returns. Governments in several developing countries are further supporting the fertilizer market through favorable policies and schemes to satisfy the domestic food demands in their respective countries.

Asia-Pacific Dominates the Market
Asia Pacific has been dominating the global nitrogenous fertilizer market, and this trend is expected to continue shortly. Rice production is expected to dominate the demand for nitrogenous fertilizers in Asia- Pacific. Grains and oilseeds have the highest share in total nitrogenous market. Nearly half of the market share is dominated by China and India, as they are the most populous countries in the region contributing to the increasing demand for nitrogenous fertilizers. Asia-pacific is anticipated to offer profitable growth prospects, as companies in the region have implemented business strategies such as collaborations and product development to enhance their market shares.
