Global Controlled Release Fertilizer Market to Reach US$ 3.95 Billion by 2027, Propelled by the Increasing Food and Crop Demand Due to Rapid Increase in the Population Globally

Published on Oct 17, 2022

The latest report by IMARC, titled “Controlled Release Fertilizer Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027”, finds that the global controlled release fertilizer market reached US$ 2.75 Billion in 2021. Controlled release fertilizer is a granular fertilizer produced to be released into the soil in a controlled manner. It increases the efficiency of nutrient delivery to crops while reducing health and environmental risks, which is helpful in horticulture, silviculture, and agriculture. It also minimizes labor cost by limiting the utilization of expensive injection equipment and eliminating the requirement to combine and monitor water-soluble fertilizers. In recent years, controlled release fertilizers have gained momentum as they are timesaving, easy to use, and offer numerous advantages, such as optimal plant development and minimum fertilizer losses.

Global Controlled Release Fertilizer Market Trends:

One of the primary factors driving the market is the increasing food and crop demand due to the rapid increase in the population globally. Additionally, the lack of per capita share of fertile land on account of the lack of nutrients in the soil is creating a positive market outlook. Other than this, controlled release fertilizer is used to enhance the soil properties and improve land productivity. Besides this, due to the shortage of food crops and adverse climatic conditions, agriculturists and farmers are adopting sustainable agricultural practices. In line with this, the surging demand for controlled release fertilizer in turfgrass to avoid nitrate deficiency that leads to yellowing of the grass and loss of vigor is positively influencing the market growth. Moreover, market players are investing in research and development (R&D) activities to develop advanced technologies. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market value to reach US$ 3.95 Billion by 2027, expanding at a CAGR of 6.10% during the forecast period (2022-2027).
