"Starter fertilizers market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 4.04%"

The starter fertilizers market, estimated at USD 6.37 billion in 2015, is projected to grow at a CAGR of 4.04%, to reach USD 8.33 billion by 2022. The market is primarily driven by factors such as increased area under forage & turf grasses, widening applicability of starter fertilizers, and increased expenditure in R&D by the starter fertilizer manufacturers.

The high growth potential in the Asia-Pacific region and untapped regions provide new growth opportunities for the market players. One of the major restrain in the growth of the starter fertilizers market is limited usage of starter fertilizer solution in field crop production. In the production of field crops, the use of starter fertilizers is limited due to the availability of other suitable types of fertilizers. The application of these fertilizers is limited to the purpose of strengthening roots of a plant at the early stages of production.

"Phosphorus nutrient component led the market with the largest share in 2015"

On the basis of nutrient component type, the starter fertilizers market was led by the phosphorus segment, followed by nitrogen and potassium, respectively. Phosphorus is increasingly used globally as a starter fertilizer, due to its trait of providing strength to the roots of a plant at a very early stage of production. The usage of these nutrient components differs in different countries on the basis of the varied climatic condition.

Cereals crop segment dominated the starter fertilizers market in 2015

The cereal crops segment dominated the starter fertilizers market, due to the large-scale application to corn, sorghum, and wheat crops in the North American region. Cereal crops such as corn, wheat, and barley constitute a large proportion of the market for starter fertilizers. This is mainly driven by the large-scale production of corn in the North American region. Agricultural producers in the region adopted a holistic approach towards crop and soil nutrient management.

"Asia Pacific: High growth projected in the starter fertilizers market"

Asia-Pacific is projected to be the fastest-growing market for the period considered for this study, due to the high adoption rate of starter fertilizer products in agriculture. Japan and Australia are expected to lead the market for starter fertilizers in the Asia-Pacific region for the next five years, as a result of the expansions and establishments of starter fertilizer manufacturers, to cater to the needs of farmers.

The U.S. starter fertilizers market not only dominates North America but also the global market.

The starter fertilizers market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 4.04% from 2016 to 2022, to reach a projected value of USD 8.33 Billion by 2022. Starter fertilizers have become prominent in the recent years, due to the increase in the area under forage & turf grasses, growth in awareness regarding the types of crops that can benefit from the use of starter fertilizers, and increase in research activities regarding the importance of placement methods in fertilizer applications.

The method of application segment of the starter fertilizers market was led by in-furrow and followed by fertigation and foliar, respectively. Foliar is expected to have the highest growth rate as it is known to increase nutrient supply during early growth stages, when the root system is not well developed. Foliar application of nutrients though starter fertilizers on crops such as corn and soybean has proved to be helpful in overcoming possible limitations in crop nutrient uptake and increasing nutrient use efficiency and yields.

Among the nutrient component type such as nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium and micronutrients, phosphorus accounted for the largest market share in 2015. Phosphorus starter fertilizers are used to a large extent among farmers, globally. Phosphorus is a key nutrient required by roots at the germination stage of crop growth. Most starter fertilizers thus contain a higher proportion of phosphorus. The cereal crops segment dominated the starter fertilizers market in 2015, owing to phosphorus’s large-scale application to corn, sorghum, and wheat crops cultivated in the North American region.

North America accounted for the largest market share for starter fertilizers, the U.S. being the fastest growing in the region, from 2016 to 2022. Asia Pacific is projected to be the fastest-growing market for the period considered for this study, due to the high adoption rate of starter fertilizer products and high level of exports of these products to the Asia-Pacific region.

Starter Fertilizers Market

Limited usage in field crop production is one of the restraints for starter fertilizers market. In the production of field crops, this limited usage is due to the availability of other suitable types of fertilizers.

Yara International ASA is one of the key players in the starter fertilizers market and focuses on strengthening its fertilizers product portfolio by acquiring companies that help in expanding its production capacity of different types of fertilizers. The company’s core competencies are strong product portfolio for fertilizers market and global footprint for fertilizer products. Recently, the company acquired Greenbelt Fertilizers (Zambia), a leading distributor of fertilizers in Zambia, Malawi and Mozambique, for USD 51 million.
