Increase in sulfur deficiency in soils to drive the sulfur fertilizers market growth

The report Sulfur Fertilizers Market by Type (Sulfates, Elemental Sulfur, Liquid Sulfur Fertilizers), Crop Type (Oilseeds & Pulses, Cereals & Grains, Fruits & Vegetables, Others), Mode of Application, Form, Cultivation Type, and Region – Global Forecast to 2025″, is estimated to be valued at USD 4.6 billion in 2020 and is projected to reach a value of USD 5.1 billion by 2025, recording a CAGR of 2.2% during the forecast period. The increase in sulfur deficiency in the soil is a major factor that is projected to drive the growth of the sulfur fertilizers market. The causes of sulfur deficiency in the soil include reduced deposition of atmospheric sulfur due to stringent regulations imposed on the emission of sulfur dioxide from industries. In addition, intensive agricultural practices, the use of improved crop varieties, and the rise in area under irrigation are factors that are projected to drive the demand for sulfur fertilizers.

The sulfates segment is projected to be the largest segment in the sulfur fertilizers market during the forecast period.

Sulfate containing fertilizers offer advantages of providing sulfur in sulfate form, which is readily available for plant uptake. Sulfate-S is mobile in most soils, as it has a double negative charge and repels the negative charge of the soil, unlike nutrients, such as potassium, calcium, or magnesium. Sulfate form moves freely with soil moisture, particularly in the upper levels of the soil profile. The most readily available source of sulfate fertilizers is ammonium sulfate (AS), single superphosphate (SSP), potassium sulfate, and potassium and magnesium sulfate.

The soil segment is estimated to account for the largest share in 2019.

The soil application of sulfur fertilizers is the most commonly used mode of application due to the reduced cost of overall applications. Sulfur fertilizers can be applied in the soil through techniques, such as a broadcast, which helps in the uniform distribution of fertilizers on the soil surface. Widespread sulfur deficiencies in soils is a key factor that is projected to encourage the use of sulfur fertilizers through application in soils. Fertilizer manufacturers have introduced new products that can be broadcasted or banded to meet the increasing demand for sulfur.

The dry segment is projected to witness the fastest growth, in terms of value, in the sulfur fertilizers market from 2019 to 2025.

The advantage of using dry fertilizers is that they have an extended shelf life and can provide nutrition to plants over an extended period of time. Thus, the increase in the consumption of granular or powdered sulfur fertilizers is a key factor that is projected to drive the growth of the dry segment in the sulfur fertilizers market. Furthermore, the launch of elemental sulfur enriched NPK fertilizers has also led to a high demand for the dry form of sulfur fertilizers.

RoW is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period.

The Rest of the World is segmented into South Africa, Turkey, and others in RoW, which includes Egypt, Morocco, Saudi Arabia, Iran, Israel, and Kenya. The agricultural activities in the African and Middle Eastern countries are carried out majorly, along the river banks and streams. Most farmers in these countries are small-scale and produce grains and other products for their own consumption and sale. However, farmers in a few Middle Eastern countries are gradually becoming aware of the benefits of sulfur fertilizers with the help of non-profit and non-governmental organizations.

Additionally, the high growth of the RoW region is supported by the increase in sulfur deficiency in the Middle Eastern and African regions.

On the other hand, factors such as disruptions in the supply chain and the lockdown imposed by several countriesare restraining the growth of the NPK fertilizers market. However, the challenging scenario creates opportunities for local players to operate within the national boundaries. They can opt for local or domestic sources of raw materials, as several countries have imposed trade restrictions, which, in turn, affect global logistics and transportation.

By nutrient type, the potassium fertilizers segment is projected to witness the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Potassium is an essential nutrient required for plant health. When the potassium supply is limited, plants have reduced yields and are susceptible to pest and disease damage. The most commonly used potash fertilizers include muriate of potash (potassium chloride) and sulfate of potash (potassium sulfate). The COVID-19 outbreak has weakened the prices of potash fertilizers due to subdued demand in China and Southeast Asia.

By crop type, the cereals & grains segment accounted forthelargest share of the NPK fertilizers market in 2019. Wheat and other cereal crops are consumed as astaple food across the world. According to the FAO, approximately 60% of the corn cultivated across the globe was used as feed in 2016.New rice export contracts have been suspended in Vietnam, while the lockdown in India, the world’s leading rice exporter, has severely curtailed shipments. Rice trade has also been impacted by the shortage of containers, the preferred method of shipping high-value grains, following a sharp fall in containerized exports from China.Furthermore, the heavy consumer purchasing seen at the outbreak of the pandemic is likely to have receded following a build-up of household stocks of cereals & grains, which could also ease localized demand pressures.
