Key Market Insights

  • With rising demand for food and related goods and dwindling arable land, the need for fertilizer additives is expected to rise steadily between 2022 and 2030. Furthermore, the rising demand for primary nutrients and high-quality fertilizers has increased the demand for higher agricultural yields.
  • After a period of decelerating sales during COVID-19 in 2020, the Fertilizer Additives industry will see a steady increase in demand. According to ChemView Consulting, between 2022 and 2030, the market will grow at a CAGR of 4.5%.
  • The anti-caking agents sector, which is now the largest product type category with a market value of US$ 502 million, is expected to provide a 1.3X incremental potential through 2030. This trend is expected to continue until 2030, owing to the high demand for solid fertilizers and the fact that anticaking additives assist to maintain fertilizer quality by preventing cakes and flakes from forming during packing and transportation.
  • Popular N (Nitrogen) fertilizers will drive revenue for fertilizer additives, accounting for the majority of overall fertilizer demand. To sustain high levels of quantity and quality, ChemView Consulting expects widespread use of fertilizer N in fruit production, oilseeds, fodder crops, and horticulture.
  • As a consequence, the Fertilizer Additives market in APAC is expected to create large commercial opportunities for providers throughout the forecast period, with a growth rate of 5-6 %. The second-largest share of the global fertilizer additive market belonged to North America.
  • Tier 1 players such as Clariant AG, Arkema S.A., Kao Corporation, and Koch Industries, Inc., among others, control over 75% of the total market share in the highly fragmented fertilizer additives industry.


Fertilizer Additives Market


Market Dynamics: Drivers, Opportunities and Trends Analysis

  • Fertilizer additives are in high demand because of the growing popularity of nitrogen fertilizers. With prospects in urea, ammonium nitrate, diammonium phosphate, mono ammonium phosphate, ammonium sulphate, and triple superphosphate applications, the fertilizer additive business appears to have a bright future.
  • Given its critical role in fertilizer manufacture, the global fertilizer additives market sees a significant opportunity in the granulating agents category. Fertilizer additives makers have a lot of chances in high-growth agriculture-dependent nations like China and India.
  • Current trends say the demand for biofertilizers has climbed by 12.5% in the previous five years, reaching 1.2 billion dollars in 2020. Biofertilizers are expected to develop two to three times faster than the standard fertilizers, according to ChemView Consulting. As a result of this trend, fertilizer additive manufacturers are concentrating on broadening their product portfolios to meet the demand from biofertilizer producers.

Market Segmental Analysis: By Product Type, By Application, By Region

  • In 2022, the anti-caking category led the fertilizer additives market, and it is projected to continue to do so in the foreseeable future. This is owing to the increased need for NPK, DAP, and Urea-based fertilizers to combat the escalating problem of fertilizer caking. The anti-caking sector is predicted to keep 1% market share in 2022 and increase 11 BPS between 2022 and 2030 in terms of value.
  • In 2022, the nitrogen sector will dominate the application type since it is easily available and easy to apply, making it the most frequent form of fertilizer. To provide optimal nutrition to food crops and hence increase output, the need for nitrogenous fertilizers has been increasing in the agriculture business. By the end of 2030, the Nitrogen sector is estimated to be worth US$ 692.5 million.
  • Asia-Pacific market is expected to grow at the highest CAGR of 3% in terms of value between 2022 and 2030. Because of the developing fertilizer industry and improved agricultural nutrient management rules, China will have a 52.0 percent market share in the Asia Pacific region in 2022.
  • The fertilizer additives market in the United States is expected to increase at 7% per year by 2022. Several significant fertilizer additive producers, the majority of which are based in the United States, operate worldwide and primarily focus on export activities in North America. Small and medium-sized regional players, on the other hand, are attempting to tap into regional fertilizer additive use.
