Market Dynamics:

The liquid fertilizer market is driven by the increasing demand for organic farming across the globe. Organic farming prohibits the use of chemical fertilizers and pesticides. Hence, farmers are increasingly adopting organic and natural fertilizers such as liquid fertilizers. Moreover, liquid fertilizers are more effective than granular fertilizers as the nutrients can be easily absorbed by the plants. The growth in agriculture production due to rising population is another factor fueling the demand for high-efficiency liquid fertilizers.

Market Trends:

One of the key trends in the liquid fertilizer market is the growing popularity of bio-stimulants. Bio-stimulants help improve nutrient uptake, stress tolerance and quality of crops. They are derived from natural materials such as seaweed, humic substances and amino acids. Another major trend is the increasing preference for nitrogen-based liquid fertilizers. Nitrogen is a crucial nutrient for plant growth and development. Thus, nitrogen fertilizers witness high demand, especially from the cereal and grain crops.

Market Opportunities:

The demand for specialty or complex liquid fertilizers is expected to rise significantly over the forecast period. Complex liquid fertilizers contain multiple plant nutrients in precisely controlled ratios to fulfill the differing nutrient requirements of different crops. They help optimize yields while minimizing the environmental impact of excess nutrient application. Growers are increasingly realizing the benefits of specialty nutrients in enhancing plant health, boosting productivity and improving quality. Liquid formulations also allow for easy and efficient application of specialty nutrients through fertigation or foliar spraying. The efficiency and precision afforded by liquid specialty fertilizers is driving their higher adoption among commercial growers.

The precision farming industry is gaining immense popularity among farmers globally. Precision farming techniques such as variable-rate fertilizer application help optimize the use of inputs by applying only as much fertilizer as needed based on soil conditions and crop requirements. This reduces costs while minimizing environmental pollution. Liquid fertilizers are highly compatible with precision farming equipment and allow for flexible, on-the-go blending of macro and micronutrients. Their ability to be applied through irrigation systems also enhances precision. The boom in precision agriculture technologies is supporting the rising demand for liquid fertilizers.

Recent Developments:

In November 2019, IFFCO Launches its Nano Technology based Products nano nitrogen, nano zinc and nano copper for on- field trials as part of its efforts to cut usage of chemical fertilisers and boost farmers’ income.

In January 2019, Haifa Group launched NutriNet™, an online expert system which aims to support and optimize the process of creating customized fertilization programs. It assist growers in setting fertilization programs at free of cost.

Key Market Takeaways

The global liquid fertilizer market is anticipated to witness a CAGR of 5.9% during the forecast period 2024-2031, owing to the fast adoption of precision farming techniques and the growing emphasis on specialty nutrient management.

On the basis of type, the complex segment is expected to be the fastest growing. However, the straight segment currently dominates owing to its widespread use in conventional agriculture.

On the basis of application mode, the fertigation segment holds the largest share currently and is expected to continue dominating over the forecast period due to its advantages of enhancing water and fertilizer use efficiency.

On the basis of crop type, the field crops segment currently dominates but horticultural crops are expected to increasingly gain popularity due to the rising demand for high-value fruits and vegetables.

By region, North America currently dominates the global market and is expected to continue its lead over the forecast period due to extensive awareness about the benefits of liquid fertilizers among growers in the region.

Some of the major players operating in the liquid fertilizer market include ICL Fertilizers, Nortox, K+S Aktiengesellschaft, Yara International, Haifa Chemicals, and Compo Expert among others. Strategic collaborations and product launches are some of the key strategies adopted by major players to gain a competitive edge in the market.
