Complex Fertilizers: Introduction


  • Complex or compound fertilizers are formed by blending two or more kinds of macronutrient fertilizers. They are used to provide crops with the appropriate level of fertility. The complex fertilizers market has been expanding at a promising pace sine the last years due to rising industrialization, urbanization, energy consumption, and conversion of arable land into commercial landscape.
  • Farmers are being educated regarding the use of proper fertilizers depending on the nutrient makeup of the soil, the crop being planted, and the kinds of pests most commonly affecting crops in their surroundings as proper fertility of the soil is an important aspect that ensures sustainable agricultural production.

Key Drivers and Restraints of Complex Fertilizers Market


  • Rise in global population and increase in need to attain sustainable agricultural produce are key factors driving the global complex fertilizers market. Significant rise in global population and urban settings and decline in arable land are resulting in a scenario where the demand for food products is straining the present agricultural yield trends. The scenario is much more demanding in developing countries across regions such as Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Africa, which, owing to the increased focus on industrial development as a way to progress economically, require millions of hectares of land if the food demand of the rising population are to be met.
  • Mass deforestation for setting up industrial, residential, and commercial locales are also leading to the destruction of vast areas of arable lands, thereby negatively affecting the overall production capacity of countries in these regions. Demand for complex fertilizers is likely to rise to ease the situation and bring about an improvement in the productivity of the arable land. However, increase in demand for organic fertilizers and stringent regulations that have banned several harmful fertilizers in various regions and countries are likely to hamper the market.
