Global Agricultural Micronutrients Market has been projected to reach approximately USD 7.3 Billion by 2026, at a CAGR of 8.4% from 2020 to 2026. Micronutrients are essential elements that are used by plants in small quantities. These include zinc, boron, copper, manganese, and iron. The demand for agricultural micronutrients is rising at a tremendous rate owing to the increasing prevalence of micronutrient deficiency in the soil, followed by the growing demand for food to fulfill the needs of the increasing population. Over-fertilization owing to limited land availability for farming is leading to micronutrient deficiency in the soil. This deficiency is continuously increasing the need for agricultural micronutrients at farms to optimize crop yields. The governments of various countries are also devising supportive policies to boost the growth of the market.
The COVID-19 outbreak has disrupted people’s lives, and its impacts across various industries have been different. The COVID-19 outbreak has restricted the growth of every sector in the global economy, and the agricultural industry is no exception. The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted the supply chains of agricultural micronutrients, as many countries are under lockdown and have sealed their borders to curb the spread of the virus. Strict containment regulations imposed by the governments of various countries and preventive measures to control the impact of the outbreak have led to significant restrictions on transportation. The impact of COVID-19 on logistics has disrupted the supply of raw materials, which has resulted in reduced production capacity and, thus, product shortages. These factors are expected to cause a price rise in agricultural micronutrients in the short run.
Global Agricultural Micronutrients Market has witnessed high growth in recent years. The rising population and increasing concerns regarding food security are driving the growth of the agricultural micronutrients market. Also, there has been an upsurge in demand for agricultural micronutrients due to the increasing awareness among farmers regarding soil nutrients deficit. The increasing adoption of contract farming, where companies provide significant agricultural inputs, has led to a rise in product awareness, supporting product growth. The demand for high-yield crops has resulted in the removal of micronutrients from the soil in large quantities.
Moreover, the increased use of NPK fertilizers containing lower quantities of micronutrient contaminants has resulted in micronutrient deficiencies in the soil. These factors are boosting the need for agricultural micronutrients across the globe. However, the farmers’ inclination towards the use of organic fertilizers in various regions may hamper market growth during the review period.
