The Global Fertilizers and Agricultural Chemicals Manufacturing industry produces synthetic fertilizers, pesticides and other agricultural chemicals. Therefore, it plays an essential role in ensuring that the world's agricultural production systems are economically efficient in the short term and sustainable in the long term. Over much of the past decade, the industry enjoyed moderate growth led by three main drivers: feed, food and biofuels.
In 2010, fertilizer and agrochemical demand started to rebound strongly in both traditional and emerging markets, where food pressures have led to calls for higher agricultural productivity and crop yields.
This industry formulates and prepares fertilizer products, pesticides (e.g. herbicides, insecticides and fungicides) and other agricultural chemicals (e.g. insect repellents, sheep dips, fly sprays and flea powders). Key markets serviced include the agricultural sector, households and various commercial and industrial users.
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.
