With a history dating back to the 1860s, the Fertiliser Manufacturing industry plays an essential role in ensuring that the nation's agricultural production systems are both economically efficient in the short term and sustainable in the long term. Roughly five to six million tonnes of fertiliser are sold each year in Australia, half of which are manufactured locally. The industry supplies a range of phosphorus, nitrogen, potassium and sulphur fertilisers, and an increasing mix of high-analysis blends and trace elements.
Companies in the industry manufacture or mix fertilisers, including those based on the three major plant nutrients (phosphorous, nitrogen and potassium), and organic fertilisers, including those derived from bonemeal and animal by-products.
The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
