Fertilizers are the type of crop supplements that provides essential nutrients to the plants or crop. Fertilizers can be straight fertilizers that possess single nutrient like nitrogen, potassium, phosphorous and multinutrient fertilizers which consists blend of two or three nutrients. Nitrogen adds fertility, increase the absorption capacity. Nitrogenous fertilizers help to improve the productivity and texture to the plants.
Increasing population and shrinkage of arable land had led to use of advance techniques and procedure for high productivity to met the growing demand. This factor drives the nitrogenous fertilizer market. Improved productivity observed due to use of nitrogenous fertilizer for sugarcane, rice and corn in Asia Pacific fuels the growth of the market. Escalating use of grains in the production of bio-fuel stimulates nitrogenous fertilizer market. However, introduction of advance organic fertilizers may hamper the growth of the nitrogenous fertilizer market. Nevertheless, rising demand from the Asia Pacific and other emerging economies is expected to show lucrative growth during the forecast period.
