The secondary macronutrients market is expected to be valued USD 38.6 billion in 2022 and USD 48.5 billion by 2028, with a CAGR of 4.0% over the forecast period. Secondary macronutrients refer to three essential plant nutrients that are required in relatively large quantities for plant growth and development. These nutrients include calcium (Ca), magnesium (Mg), and sulfur (S). They improve the quality of crops, enhance yield, and promote soil fertility and productivity. The benefits of secondary macronutrients extend beyond the plant to include improved resistance to diseases and pests.
“sulfur is the second largest segment which is expected to be gain second largest market share in 2022.”
Sulfur is an essential nutrient for plant growth and development and plays a key role in crop production. It is part of several important plant compounds, including amino acids, proteins and enzymes. It also help to improve overall plant health and vigor. It is necessary for the formation of chlorophyll, which is necessary for photosynthesis. Sulfur is important for the uptake of other important plant nutrients such as nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium. This helps improve the efficiency of nutrient uptake and utilization, which can increase performance.
“The fruits and vegetables segment is the second largest, projected to accounted for the largest market share in 2022”
The main factors driving the use of secondary macronutrients in major fruit and vegetable production and export regions are increased fruit production, good quality fruit and lower production costs. Increase in production of fruits such as strawberries, apples, grapes, pomegranates, oranges, chilies, peppers, tomatoes, chilies, among others. The expansion of world trade has increased the availability of fruits and vegetables from various parts of the world, making them even more accessible to consumers, will further boost the market.
“The dry form segment is forecasted to occupy for the largest market share in 2022.”
Dry forms of secondary macronutrients are easy to handle and transport, making them a convenient choice for farmers. Dry forms of secondary macronutrients are usually less expensive than their liquid counterparts. This cost-effectiveness is particularly beneficial to farmers who require large quantities of these nutrients. Dry forms of secondary macronutrients have a longer shelf life than liquid forms. This means they can be stored for longer periods of time without the risk of spoilage, making them a reliable choice for farmers who need to ensure a constant supply of food.
“Asia Pacific market is projected to gain largest market share during the forecast period.“
The Asia Pacific market is the largest market for secondary macronutrients. This is due to the higher production of fruits and vegetables in the region. In the Asia-Pacific region, wheat, barley, corn, tomatoes, grapes, seeds and stone fruits grow the most. These crops are also exported in large quantities to different parts of the world. Food security is an important goal for many countries in the Asia-Pacific region, and the use of fertilizers containing secondary macronutrients can play a role in achieving this goal by increasing yield and improving the nutritional value of crops. Farmers in Asia and the Pacific are increasingly adopting crop rotation practices that can help improve soil health and nutrient availability. The use of fertilizers containing secondary macronutrients can complement these practices and support crop production. This has led to increased utilization of the secondary macronutrients market and stimulated the growth of the secondary macronutrients market in the region.
