High demand for agricultural fertilizers to boost crop yield and soil fertility is likely to stimulate growth of the market for phosphate fertilizers. Limited availability of arable land and growing awareness regarding the advantages of phosphate fertilizers can further augment market expansion. Favorable government initiatives to promote fertilizers offering naturally occurring nutrients such as nitrogen and phosphorus can positively influence market development during the forecast period.

The worldwide phosphate fertilizers market can be segregated on the basis of product, application, and region. Based on product, the market can be categorized into Diammonium Phosphate (DAP), superphosphate, Monoammonium Phosphate (MAP), and others. In 2016, the DAP fertilizers accounted for market share equivalent to USD 15.5 billion. These fertilizers are expected to witness significant growth in demand during the forecast period as they are the key source of phosphorus and nitrogen. These fertilizers can be used in wide range of crops such as sowing pastures, cereals, fodder crops, sugarcane, dairy pastures, and horticultural crops and are likely to be a cost-effective source of nitrogen for crops.

All these factors are anticipated to contribute to the overall market growth in the forthcoming years.

Based on application, the market for phosphate fertilizers can be classified into oilseeds, cereals and grains, fruits and vegetables, and others. In 2016, the cereals and grains segment dominated the market and accounted for largest market share. It is likely to grow at CAGR of nearly 4.6% from 2017 to 2025. High demand for cereals and grains is attributed to rising population and demand for food in countries like China and India. Farmers and gardeners are expected to add phosphate fertilizers to soil to increase the ability of crops and plants to absorb natural phosphorus present in the soil. The ability of fertilizers to maintain the richness of soil nutrients for healthy plant development can impel the demand in near future.

Regional segmentation includes North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Central and South America, and Middle East and Africa. In 2016, Asia Pacific dominated the market and accounted for around 59.1% of market share. It is estimated to grow at a CAGR of nearly 5.5% through to 2025.
