The Fertiliser and Nitrogen Compound Manufacturing industry produces fertilisers containing nitrogen, potassium, phosphate and potting soil. Industry revenue fell in 2009-10 as prices tumbled following an inexorable rise in 2008-09. In the decade through 2008-09, the industry was beset by the long-term trend of falling fertiliser use, with nitrogen in particular being most affected. This trend has abated in the past five years. In light of this, global fertiliser prices have been the main determinant of industry performance over the past five years. The industry is expected to decline at a compound annual rate of 0.2% over the five years through 2014-15, reaching £1.6 billion.
This industry covers companies that manufacture fertilisers. It also includes companies that manufacture associated nitrogen products, potting soil and potting soil mixtures comprising natural soil, sand, clays and minerals.
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.
