Top fertilizer additives manufacturers are reflecting increased interest in product research and development towards improving shelf life, and low costs in compliance with agriculture regulations.

ROCKVILLE, MD / ACCESSWIRE / October 19, 2020 / The fertilizer additives market is expected to display a moderate growth rate of 3.2% CAGR between the forecast years from 2020 to 2030. The high reliance of the industry on supplies coming out of China, and lockdown restrictions on additive production in the region create supply chain delays. In addition, the growing popularity of organic and natural fertilizers is also expected to restrain market growth in the long term.

'Growing concerns internationally about the security of food supplies and the increased demand for greater agricultural yields are propelling demands for key nutrients such as nitrates and phosphates for better fertilizer quality and shelf life, which is critical for the increased demand for fertilizer additives in the years to come,' says the Fact.MR report.

Anticipated Market Impact by Coronavirus Outbreak

The global agrochemicals sector has been negatively impacted by the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Producers are facing challenges owing to disruptions in the supplies of raw materials. In addition, China, the epicenter of the pandemic is a major fertilizer additive and raw material production center. Consequently, the global industry is likely to face delays in delivery schedules.

On the other hand, food security concerns have resulted in many governments relaxing regulations associated to fertilizer production, which will help market players to partially mitigate the risk of losses during this period.

The market is expected to reflect gradual recovery in the months to come through 2021, as organized agriculture gets back on track, and farming bodies take measures to reduce harvest problems arising with the labor shortage during the pandemic.
