Zion Research has published a new report titled “Micronutrients (Boron, Copper, Iron, Manganese, Molybdenum, Zinc and Others) Market by Crop Type (Cereals, Pulses & Oilseeds, Fruits & Vegetables and Others) for Fertigation, Foliar, Soil, Seed Treatment and Hydroponics Application: Global Industry Perspective, Comprehensive Analysis and Forecast, 2014 – 2020”. According to report, the global micronutrient market was valued at approximately USD 4.75 billion in 2014 and is expected to reach approximately USD 7.75 billion by 2020, growing at a CAGR of slightly above 8.0% between 2015 and 2020. In terms of volume, global micronutrient market stood at 1,050.0 kilo tons in 2014.
Micronutrients play an important role in vigorous and healthy growth of plants. Micronutrients are found in and needy by plants in relatively small amounts to regulate certain physiological activities in crops to enhance their yield and quality. Micronutrients provide the necessary co-factors for metabolism to be carried out. In agriculture, nutrients can be applied to the soil as fertilizers. There are about 20 nutrients required for plant health and better yielding. Three of them, carbon, hydrogen and oxygen are considered part of the protoplasm and the remainders are considered to be mineral elements.

The global micronutrient market is primarily driven by strong demand from agricultural sector and deficiency of micronutrients such as zinc, boron, iron, etc. in soil across various regions. Rapid growth in vegetarian population is another key factor driving the market growth. Government support coupled with technology advancement is anticipated to further support the aforementioned end-used segment. However, lack of awareness among farmers and high cost are expected to be major restraining factors for the global micronutrients market growth in the years to come.
The micronutrients market is segmented on the basis of major essential micronutrients such as boron, copper, iron, manganese, molybdenum, zinc and others. Among all micronutrients, zinc dominated micronutrient market by type, accounting for majority of share in 2014. Other key micronutrients include, boron, manganese and iron are consumed in higher quantities and expected to exhibit fastest growth during the forecast period. This growth can be attributed to strong demand for micronutrients due to deficiencies of micronutrients in soil.
The micronutrients market is segmented on the basis of different crop type such as cereals, pulses and oilseeds, fruits & vegetables and others. Cereal further segmented into wheat, barley, maize and oats among others. This segment accounted for very large chunk of market share in 2014. Pulses and oilseeds was another leading segment and constitute 29.0% of market share in 2014. Fruits and vegetables is another key outlet for micronutrients and expected to witness rapid growth over the forecast period.
