Selbyville, Delaware, Aug. 14, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --

The controlled release fertilizer market value will rise over the forthcoming years due to exponential population growth and the subsequent rise in global food demand. According to the Harvard Business Review the global food demand is slated to rise by anywhere between 59% - 98% by year 2050. This demand will subsequently reshape numerous regional agricultural markets, augmenting the industry outlook.

Farmers throughout the world would need to boost their crop production, either by improving productivity on current farmlands or by increasing the number of farmlands. Either way, both solutions would prove to be highly lucrative for controlled release fertilizers, augmenting overall reach of controlled release fertilizer brands and boosting market share considerably.

In recent years, controlled release fertilizers have gained immense popularity, garnering substantial attention from agronomists and growers throughout the world. Various scientific studies have shown that farmers can attain higher production and quality through controlled fertilizers.

Controlled fertilizers deliver results that are almost as good as standard fertilizers, and they do so while using less fertilizers; sometimes less by almost 25%. Controlled release fertilizers also facilitate added benefits of leaching nutrients on a smaller scale while also requiring far fewer application passes.

From a regional perspective, Middle East and Africa is projected to emerge as a prominent avenue of growth for controlled release fertilizer market during the forecast timeframe. Africa, especially, represents a significant yet relatively untapped industry landscape. Agriculture plays a crucial role throughout Africa, providing employment to approximately 65% of the continent’s workforce and contributing more than 32% of the region’s total GDP.

Today, approximately 70% of the region’s population depends directly upon agriculture as the primary source of their livelihood. However, even though it is a predominant source of livelihood for many, the continent’s agriculture sector is facing several issues in terms of low productivity.

These problems are further being compounded by urban migration, climate change, and lack of knowledge & technical expertise. According to the Aid & International Development Forum, Africa is currently witnessing a rapid population expansion, with some estimates putting it somewhere close to 2.2 billion by 2050.

Through this trend, the need for Africa’s farmers to boost productivity is becoming more critical. Controlled release fertilizer industry players are expected to leverage their ability to boost crop production to gain a strong footing in this agriculture-dominant regional market.

By foraying into this relatively untapped market landscape, the global controlled release fertilizer market share is slated to grow by a significant margin over the forthcoming years.

When it comes to crop types, oilseeds & pulses and fruits & vegetables are expected to emerge as notable contributors augmenting the overall controlled release fertilizer market outlook. Cereals and grains though, are also expected to register substantial demand in the years ahead.

Despite its prominence and increasing demands, productivity of pulses throughout the world remains low, at approximately a quarter of worldwide cereal yields per hectare. It is expected that agronomists and growers would be turning to the controlled release fertilizers to keep up with growing demands, further augmenting the market share in coming years.

According to the Food and Agriculture Organization, escalating protein meal demand, especially across countries such as China, has been a major driver behind the overall expansion of oilseed production throughout the world. The market size is expected to witness a sizable boost in its revenue stream owing to these demands.

Additionally, the fruit & vegetable crop segment is expected to gain a more prominent role in fostering controlled release fertilizer market growth across the forecast timeframe. According to the World Health Organization, insufficient consumption of vegetables and fruits is estimated to cause approximately 9% of global stroke deaths, 11% ischemic heart disease deaths, and 14% gastrointestinal cancer deaths.

Growing awareness towards healthy living and the subsequent rise in adoption of healthy diet plans that incorporate fruit and vegetables, is expected to boost demand for the global fruits and vegetables. The global market is expected to benefit from this demand and augment its market expansion during the forecast study period.
