The report “Liquid Fertilizers Market by Type (Nitrogen, Phosphorus, Potassium, and Micronutrients), Mode of Application (Soil, Foliar, and Fertigation), Major Compounds (CAN, UAN, MAP, DAP, and Potassium Nitrate), Crop Type, and Region – Global Forecast To 2025″, The global liquid fertilizers market size is estimated to be valued at USD 2.4 billion in 2020 and is projected to reach a value of USD 3.0 billion by 2025, growing at a CAGR of 4.4% during the forecast period. Factors such as the rise in demand for high-efficiency fertilizers and an increase in crop varieties are projected to drive the growth of the liquid fertilizers market.
Driver: Growth in demand for enhanced high-efficiency fertilizers
Enhanced, efficient application of liquid fertilizers ensures that crops and plants receive nutrients in an amount that is required at the right time and at the right place, with minimum wastage. Enhanced efficiency fertilizers (EEF) are growing substantially in the agriculture industry in various fields such as cereals and industrial crops, as a result of the emergence of new urease inhibitors and inexpensive polymer coating technologies. Such application of enhanced efficiency fertilizers also helps in reducing the negative impact of nutrients by way of leaching into water reservoirs.

Restraint: High handling costs
One of the major restraints in the growth of the liquid fertilizers market is the high storage cost of liquid fertilizers, along with the high cost of installation. Liquid fertilizers are water-soluble. The cost of mixing the nutrients in the water is high, and so is the cost of transportation, as fertilizers in the liquid form require distinctive handling and storage facilities. This is hindering the growth of the market around the globe, especially in regions such as Africa and the Middle East due to the lack of awareness about the application of liquid fertilizers.
The nitrogen segment is estimated to account for the largest market share, in terms of value, in 2020.
Nitrogen is one of the most-widely consumed nutrients among all the macro and microelements required for plant growth. It is used to build amino acids, which produces proteins, takes part in almost every biochemical reaction performed in a plant. Inadequate nitrogen (N) availability in the soil is a common problem that farmers often witness. Therefore, additional liquid nitrogen fertilization is used to eradicate this problem. Urea, ammonium nitrate, ammonium sulfate, and calcium nitrate are commonly available nutrient sources of liquid nitrogen. In addition, various combinations of nutrients are manufactured and used to provide nutrition to plants. Urea is one of the most commonly used sources of nitrogen.
The urea-ammonium nitrate (UAN) segment, on the basis of major compounds, is estimated to record significant growth due to its high demand in the global liquid fertilizers market.
UAN is gaining popularity among liquid fertilizer users, as it can be mixed with pesticides, herbicides, growth regulators, and other nutrients. Hence, it allows farmers to reduce costs by applying several materials simultaneously. Due to its chemical properties, UAN is compatible with many other nutrients and agricultural chemicals. Thus, it is more often mixed with solutions containing phosphorus, potassium, and other essential plant nutrients. Fluid fertilizers can be blended to precisely meet the specific needs of the soil or crop.

The increasing demand for various crops in the Asia Pacific regions is driving the growth of the market.
The increasing agricultural practices and requirement of high-quality agricultural produce are factors that are projected to drive the nitrogenous fertilizers market growth in this region. Major crops produced in Asia include rice, sugar beet, fruits & vegetables, cereals, and grains; the region consumes 90% of the global rice produced. Asian countries, such as Korea, China, Japan, and recently Vietnam, are applying high levels of nitrogenous fertilizers per hectare, for both short-term and perennial crops. Hence, the demand for liquid fertilizers is high in the region.
