“Global metal chelates market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 8.54%.”
The metal chelates market is projected to reach a value of USD 619.5 million by 2022 growing at a CAGR of 8.54% from 2016. The market is driven by the factors such as decreasing soil quality and increasing micronutrient deficiencies. This will increase the demand for the chelated metals. The growth of the market will be hindered due to the issues regarding non-biodegradable chelates.

“The micronutrients segment is projected to be the largest growing from 2016 to 2022.”
The micronutrients are the largest segment as these are the most deficient nutrients. Micronutrients have a major impact in the productivity of the crop. They are the nutrients available in metal form, and are majorly available in chelated form to optimize the uptake. The increasing awareness about the micronutrient deficiency in the soil is driving the demand for chelated micronutrients.

“The folior mode of application is projected to be largest and fastest growing from 2016 to 2022.”
The folior is preferred mode of application for metal chelates due to its ease of application. It is also cost effective and time efficient. This is increasing the use of folior application among the farmers which, in turn, is driving the market for metal chelates.

“Asia-Pacific is projected to be the fastest growing from 2016 to 2022.”
Asia-Pacific is expected to account for the largest share of the market and is projected to grow at the highest rate. The demand for metal chelates is driven by the increasing awareness about the modern agricultural practices. China is the largest market for the metal chelates in the Asia-Pacific region followed by India. The increasing awareness among the farmers and adoption of modern agricultural practices are driving the market in these countries.
