The global agricultural micronutrients market grew at a CAGR of around 8% during 2015-2020. Agricultural micronutrients are the essential mineral elements, such as Zinc (Zn), Copper (Cu), Manganese (Mn), Iron (Fe), Boron (B) and Molybdenum (Mo), which are used by plants in small quantities. They help improve the yield and quality of agricultural products and are majorly used with soil, in foliar sprays and fertigation systems. They also assist in the biological processes and cell growth of plants. Nowadays, micronutrients are mixed with dry and liquid fertilizers to reduce cost and allow uniform distribution with conventional application equipment.
Micronutrients are utilized in plants for hormone balancing, auxin activity, enhancing flowering blooms and developing a uniform ripening process. The rising focus on plant nutrients for successful growth and optimum yields represents one of the key factors bolstering the market growth. Besides this, they improve sugar translocation and root strength, which helps develop large roots and supports overall plant immunity. Additionally, as they act as enzyme co-factors and building blocks that enable plants to build complete proteins and compounds, they are considered an essential mineral element for nurturing horticultural crops. This, in turn, is increasing their overall sales worldwide. Other factors contributing to an increase in the usage of agricultural micronutrients include the need to achieve proper balanced nutrition in crops of cereals, pulses, oilseeds, spices and plantation. Apart from this, as micronutrient deficiency leads to stunted growth, leaf discoloration, loss of fruiting bodies, plant deformations and reduced crop yields, their demand is anticipated to expand in the agricultural industry. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the global agricultural micronutrients market to exhibit moderate growth during the next five years.
