The Future Market Insights (IMF) analysis of the Phosphates market aims to uncover hidden opportunities in key segments including product, quality and end use. Focusing on improving agricultural yield without causing a carbon footprint will create attractive growth opportunities

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates, August 5, 2021 / PRNewswire / – Global Phosphate Market Expected to Grow 2.4% CAGR during the forecast period, driven by increasing demand for phosphates in agrochemical applications. Future Market Insights (IMF) indicates that the phosphate market will generate revenues reaching US $ 16.1 billion in 2021.

The agricultural sector has flourished in recent years due to strong demand for cash crops and food as well as rapid population growth in developing and developed economies. To meet the growing food needs, the demand for fertilizer to increase the yield of arable land has skyrocketed, thus increasing the consumption of phosphate.

Growing demand for diammonium phosphate (DAP), monoammonium phosphate (MAP), simple superphosphate (SSP) and triple superphosphate (TSP) fertilizers to counter the deterioration of the nutritional value of cultivated soil is expected to drive sales of phosphates in the years to come.

The government’s proactive measures to increase agricultural yield and promote the use and production of harmless fertilizers will positively influence the growth of the phosphate market in the years to come.

The Indian government is investing more and more to revive the agricultural sector and provide financing for crop protection and subsidized fertilizers to farmers. As the aggregate gross domestic product (GDP) of India heavily dependent on the agricultural sector, the demand for phosphates is expected to increase in the near future.

The COVID-19 pandemic has hampered logistics and transportation activities, resulting in sluggish trade and disrupting the supply chain network. With the easing of strict foreclosure restrictions, the market is expected to recover over the next two years.

The market, however, experienced significant growth during the pandemic due to increased demand for food and beverages and increased agricultural activities. Demand for feed and fertilizer also contributed to the growth seen amid the pandemic.

“The increasing industrialization and contraction of agricultural land will significantly increase the sales of phosphate fertilizers during the forecast period. The increasing demand for animal feed and population growth will create attractive growth opportunities in the years to come. “said the IMF analyst.
