Fertilizers Market Trends



  • Rapid rise in population in North America will boost the market growth


The need for fertilizers in North America is expected to rise due to population growth, driving the market CAGR. Fertilizers promote crop development because they improve soil fertility, which in turn increases agricultural productivity. The need for food is rising as a result of the expanding population. However, it is predicted that an increase in awareness activities to inform farmers about the advantages of fertilizers—such as endorsing their usage through television commercials and workshops—will propel the fertilizer market. Furthermore, modern liquid fertilizer administration, which is more effective and efficient, ensures that crops and plants receive the nutrients they require at the right time and location with the least amount of waste. Innovative urease inhibitors and inexpensive polymer coating technologies have led to the rapid development of extremely effective fertilizers in a variety of agricultural applications, including industrial crops and cereals. This will boost the North America fertilizers market expansion.


There are many chances to address environmental, social, and economic issues through the creation and application of green and sustainable technologies. Technologies for renewable energy, like solar, wind, and hydropower, provide fossil fuel substitutes while lowering greenhouse gas emissions, slowing down global warming, and advancing sustainable energy production. Precision farming, organic farming, and agroforestry are examples of sustainable agricultural technology that can increase crop yields, improve soil health, lower chemical inputs, and support biodiversity. Recycling, upcycling, and trash reduction are examples of circular economy techniques that can help save resources, lessen pollution, and generate jobs. Reducing carbon emissions, improving resilience to climate change, and improving quality of life are all achieved through intelligent and environmentally friendly urban planning and infrastructure, such as green buildings, public transit, and sustainable waste management. Thus driving the North America fertilizers market revenue.


Fertilizers Market Segment Insights



  • Fertilizers Type Insights


The North America Fertilizers market segmentation, based on type, includes Complex and Straight (Micronutrients, Nitrogenous, Phosphatic, Potassic, and Secondary Macronutrients). The straight segment dominated the market because there was tremendous pressure on the agriculture sector to increase crop production as a result of the growing global population and the ensuing rise in food demand. Straight fertilizers, like those based on nitrogen, give the soil the vital nutrients it needs to support strong plant development and increased yields.



  • Fertilizers Form Insights


The North America Fertilizers market segmentation, based on form, includes Conventional and Speciality (CRF, Liquid Fertilizer, SRF, Water Soluble). The speciality category generated the most income. The growing need for high-efficiency fertilizers that maximize agricultural productivity while minimizing environmental effects is driving the specialized fertilizers category's strong growth. The necessity for sustainable agricultural practices and the world's expanding population are the main drivers of this trend. There is a growing trend in the use of specialized formulations such as slow-release and micronutrient-rich fertilizers.



  • Fertilizers Application Insights


The North America Fertilizers market segmentation, based on application, includes Fertigation, Foliar and Soil. The fertigation category generated the most income because fertilizers that dissolve in water are being used more often. Fertigation involves applying fertilizer through an irrigation system after it has been combined with water, usually with the use of a drip system or a micro-sprinkler. Additionally, increasing efforts and investments in the construction of cutting-edge, higher-capacity fertilizer sprinklers will accelerate market expansion.



  • Fertilizers Crop Type Insights


The North America Fertilizers market segmentation, based on crop type, includes Field Crops, Horticultural Crops, and Turf & Ornamental. The field crops category generated the most income. Over 95.0% of the agricultural area in this region is used for field crop agriculture. About 69.0% of the region's total arable land is occupied by the United States. Field crops are cultivated on 84.0% of the land in this. Numerous variables impact the increase, such as modifications to farming methods, breakthroughs in fertilizer technology, changes in customer preferences for particular crops, and government regulations pertaining to agricultural subsidies and incentives. Furthermore, variables including soil health, insect control, and climate change may have an effect on the field crops market's need for fertilizers.

Fertilizers Country Insights


In the upcoming years, the fertilizers market in North America is anticipated to increase steadily. The market will be driven by factors such as population increase, rising food demand, technology developments, and the requirement for sustainable agriculture. The market's future will also be shaped by the growing trends of organic fertilizers, precision farming, and the use of digital technology in agriculture. Additionally, governments all around North America are starting programs to encourage the manufacture of compost locally, giving farmers additional choices. To address and get over the challenge of growing expenses, the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) revealed plans in March 2022 to promote greater fertilizer production for American farmers. To encourage the development of innovative, autonomous, and advantageous fertilizer production in the US, one of these proposals is to invest USD 250 million in a new grant program. Additionally, in terms of worldwide urea and ammonia imports and exports in 2019, the US ranked second and ninth, respectively. Because of this, as well as the region's expanding population and increased food security, the United States dominates the North American market for fertilizers, which is expected to fuel growth in the market during the anticipated period.
