Phosphate Fertilizers are a type of fertilizers, farmers and gardeners apply phosphate-based fertilizer to plants and soil to boost local phosphorus (P) levels. Young plants are especially vulnerable to deficient P levels, but almost every plant needs it to maintain healthy growth. Artificial phosphate fertilizer and manure or compost are used together to revitalize severely depleted soil. Commercial phosphate fertilizers are manufactured using phosphate rock. Approximately two-thirds of the world’s phosphate resources are derived from sedimentary and marine phosphate rock deposits. Ground rock phosphate has been used as a source of phosphorous for soils in the past. However, due to the low concentration of phosphorous in this native material, high transportation costs, and small crop responses, the usage of rock phosphate has reduced considerably in agriculture. On the other hand, the usage of phosphorus-based fertilizers has grown significantly. 

Market Dynamics 

The global Phosphate Fertilizers Market is primarily driven by the ever-rising population that has led to food security concerns and agricultural development. The increasing food shortage has resulted in heavy dependence on phosphate fertilizers globally.

The use of fertilizers and pesticides is extensive in the United States (US) agriculture, and crop production has been aided by these inputs for some time. As demand for crops like corn and soybeans grew, so did the land area dedicated for their production. Fertilizer and pesticide use increased alongside it. Nutrients essential for plant growth are supplied by fertilizers, and pesticides kill plants and animals which harm crops, helping boost production. Between 1985 and 2016, adjusted for inflation, US farm expenditures on fertilizers increased from $8.6 billion to $23.5 billion, and spending on chemicals swelled from $3.9 to $15.2 billion.

However, the phosphate fertilizers market such as P2O5 grade of phosphorus, cadmium pollution of Phosphate Fertilizers which is harmful to the human when exposed has hampered the growth of Phosphate Fertilizers market.

Segment Analysis

By application, the global Phosphate Fertilizers Market is segmented into cereals and grains, oilseeds, fruits and vegetables, and others. Cereals and grains application has a high dominance in this segment due to the high usage of Phosphate Fertilizers in farming for the cultivation of cereals and grains. 

Cereal and grains have been the principal component of the human diet for thousands of years and have played a major role in shaping human civilization. And the usage of cereals and grains for feeding cattle is increasing all around the world and hence has a huge demand for the cereals and grains.

Geographical Analysis

By geography, the global Water Treatment Aerators Market is segmented into North America, Asia-Pacific (APAC), Europe, South America, and the Middle East and Africa (MEA).

APAC holds the largest market share for Phosphate Fertilizers due to high population growth and use for agrochemical products in the developing nation like China and India has high demands for Phosphate Fertilizers market due to the ever-increasing food demand considering the population growth and hence made APAC to hold most of the market share. However, North America is after APAC in terms of the market share of Phosphate Fertilizers Market, followed by Europe.
