Global Specialty Fertilizers Market is valued approximately at USD 35.3 billion in 2019 and is anticipated to grow with a healthy growth rate of more than 6.4 % over the forecast period 2020-2027. Specialty Fertilizers are little fertilizer particles which help deter precipitation and help release the fertilizer nutrients into the fields that help to grow the crops properly. Specialty fertilizers boost nutrient absorption, mitigate potential nutrient depletion and reduce the toxicity induced by high ionic concentration. They improve pesticide consumption and serve as binding agents to avoid leaching. The driving factors found on the market are growth in the global field of precision cultivation, raising the rate of fertilizer leaching, the need to increase the quality of fertilizer usage and favorable government policies. Sustainable farming practices are increasing acceptance worldwide, concentrating on reducing farming costs to reach environmental protection standards, both of these aspects are driving demand for specialty fertilizers. Whereas, lack of affordable product options for farmers and complex production processes are likely to inhibit the market growth. Apart from this, the key players of global specialty fertilizers market have adopted various strategies to gain competitive advantage including product launch, mergers and acquisition, partnerships and agreements, investment, funding and others. For instance, in September 2019, Nutrien, Ltd. had acquired Ruralco Holdings Limited (Ruralco) in. Through this acquisition, Nutrien will provide substantial benefits to its stakeholders, and enhance the availability of its products and services to Australian farmers. Similarly, EuroChem Group extended its fertilizer manufacturing operation by building a third new fertilizer mixing factory in Brazil in June 2019. This manufacturing center was a modern 27,000 m2 plant at Araguari in Minas Gerais, a further phase in the continuous growth of the subsidiary of EuroChem, Fertilizantes Tocantins (FTO). However, the cost of production of specialty fertilizers is relatively higher than that of conventional fertilizers this is expected to inhibit the market growth
