The global controlled-release fertilizers market is estimated at USD 2.4 billion in 2020 and is projected to reach USD 3.2 billion by 2025. The controlled-release fertilizers market is projected to grow at a rate of 6.3% during the forecast period. Factors driving the market include an increase in demand for highly efficient fertilizers, favorable government regulations, a rise in demand for high-value crops, and an increase in the number of investments from key players in this market. The growing environmental concerns associated with nutrient loss through soil leaching and runoffs from fields on the using excess conventional fertilizers are effectively addressed by these fertilizers.
The fertigation segment of controlled-release fertilizers is projected to account for the largest market share, by mode of application
The controlled-release fertilizers market, by application method, was dominated by the fertigation segment. Fertigation is a technique that has been adopted by major countries. In this technique, the fertilizer is included with irrigation water and applied through systems. This technique witnesses better application than broadcasting and subsurface placement. Owing to the increasing irrigated land, fertigation is highly preferred as a suitable application method adopted in both developed and developing countries across the globe for the application of these fertilizers. Also, the labor costs are reduced to a large extent through the adoption of these techniques, which also adds to their increasing demand.

The agricultural segment is projected to be the faster-growing segment in the controlled-release fertilizers market during the forecast period.
As the market demand shifts towards the usage from NPK fertilizers to controlled-release fertilizers in the developing economies, there is an increase in demand for controlled-release fertilizers. The manufacturers are continuing research efforts to develop cheaper and better coatings/materials to reduce the overall cost and encourage the adoption of this technology.
The slow-release segment is projected to record the fastest growth during the forecast period.
The slow-release segment is projected to be the fastest-growing segment. Urea-formaldehyde fertilizers are most effective in high temperatures and are hence used in regions with warm climatic conditions such as the Asia Pacific Mediterranean region in Europe and the southwestern region of the US.
The Asia Pacific is projected to witness significant growth during the forecast period
The Asia Pacific accounted for the largest share. The region is projected to grow at the highest CAGR of 6.2% & 6.0% in terms of value & volume, respectively, during the forecast period. The increasing growth of high-value crops and raising awareness among farmers about the environmental benefits of controlled-release fertilizers are expected to provide more scope for market expansion. The government policies adopted by Asia Pacific countries and the large subsidies, in certain countries up to 100% for marginal farmers, provided on fertilizers are the major factors triggering the growth of this market in the region. R&D investments in the development of coated fertilizers and the installation of new production capacities by key players are expected to boost the market in the next five years.
