[Online Quarterly Update] Global Sulphur Fertilizers demand has grown remarkably in the past and is expected to achieve a healthy CAGR of 5% during the forecast period. Increasing sulphur-deficiencies in the soils as a result of intensive agricultural production and reduced atmospheric sulphur deposition due to strict regulations on sulphur emissions will drive the growth of the Sulphur Fertilizers market in the forecast period. Sulphur deficiency in soils have posed a major challenge among the famers around the world who are opting for high performance Sulphur Fertilizers which could enable them to increase their crop yield and enhance its quality and profitability. With strenuous efforts of the global food security bodies such as the Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and the International Fertilizer Association (IFA) towards adapting better agricultural practices to raise crop productivity, there has been increased focus on the use of Sulphur fertilizers. These factors are likely to contribute to the growth of the Sulphur Fertilizers market in the upcoming years.
However, global trade disruptions and lack of manpower due to COVID-19 outbreak dented the global Sulfur Fertilizers consumption across several parts of globe. Volatile foreign exchange rates, shift in consumption trends and macroeconomic uncertainty across agri-food markets trickled down severe implications on the global fertilizer production in the first half of FY20. However, with gradual re-opening of several economies and resumption of industrial operations, the demand has shown a considerable improvement in Q2 FY20 and is likely to find balance with the gradual pickup in offtakes.
Based on type, the market has been segmented into Sulphates, Elemental Sulphur, Sulphate of Micronutrients and Others. Sulphates are likely to dominate the Sulphur Fertilizers market during the forecast period due to their ease of uptake by the plants as they provide sulphur in the more accessible sulfate (SO4-2) form. Sulphate containing fertilizers encompass a wide range of fertilizers such as Ammonium Sulphate (AS), Single Superphosphate (SSP), Ammonium Phosphate Sulphate, Potassium Sulphate, Magnesium Sulphate etc.
Among the type of crops, oilseeds & pulses which form a staple diet for millions or serve as high-value ingredients for several food products are widely cultivated across several developing regions of the world. Increased production of these crops across the world due to their high nutritional value will augment the growth of the Sulphur Fertilizers market in the forecast period. Australia, which is a key exporter of pulse crops, with almost 98 per cent of its production destined for export to South Asia, the Middle East and North Africa is one of the largest consumers of Sulphur Fertilizers for Pulses.
Regionally, North America dominates the Sulphur Fertilizers market and holds the largest market share. Its large agriculture area and awareness among growers about the latest farming techniques will drive the market growth. Asia-Pacific region holds the highest market potential with increasing demand for high-quality agriculture produce supported by rising population and regional policies favoring the domestic fertilizer production
