The calcium segment estimated to dominate the market with the largest share in 2017.

The calcium segment is estimated to be the largest nutrient type of secondary macronutrients in 2017 owing to the growing demand for gypsum and lime to tackle soil acidity issues. In addition, calcium is the most important nutrient among three macronutrients as it helps to strengthen the cell wall, reduce soil salinity, and improve water penetration.

The liquid formulation segment is projected to grow at a higher rate during the forecast period.
