Introduction of Cost-Efficient CRF

Fertilizers to Help Market Gain Impetus

The American Plant Food Control

Officials (AAPFCO) defines controlled-release fertilizers as plant-nutrient

containing fertilizers that delay its availability for plant uptake and use

after application. With the increasing population, governments of various

nations are imposing security on food. This is likely to help promote the

delayed-release fertilizers market growth. Besides this, companies are trying

to introduce cost-efficient and encapsulated CRF fertilizers and this will

further attract high slow acting fertilizers market revenue in the forecast


The increasing environmental concerns

are further propelling agriculturists, farmers and others to improve the

utilization of fertilizers for increasing nutrient uptake among crops. This, as

per analyst at Fortune Business Insights™, will further contribute to the

decline in environmental stress and ultimately help to increase the overall CRF

fertilizer market size in the foreseeable future.

However, the lack of proper laws for

protecting controlled-release fertilizers may affect the overall CRF market

size in the forecast period. Nevertheless, government efforts and the launch of

various educational programs for farmers are likely to help create lucrative

controlled-release fertilizer market growth opportunities in the near future.

of countries especially China and India. This is further propelling the rise in

demand for food all over the region. Japan and China are the two major market

leaders in Asia Pacific with both high production and consumption. Growth in

China is owing to the rise in research and development of innovative

agricultural products, coupled with the presence of market players namely

Hangfeng Evergreen, Kingenta International, and others in the nation. Moreover,

conducive policies concerning smart fertilizers in Japan and China are further

expected to help this region continue dominating the market in the years to


Adoption of Merger and Acquisition

Strategies to Bode Well for Market Vendors

Key players such as ICL, Pursell, and

SQM have raised the bars and set new standards on cost-effective specialized

fertilizers. This is ultimately encouraging agricultural companies to heighten

their production scale and expand their portfolios by increasing the number of

product launches. Besides this, new players in nations such as China, Japan,

and the U.S., are entering into the CRF fertilizer market looking at the future

opportunities the market will provide. Recently, companies such as Haifa
