Global Fertilizers

This report forecasts to 2022 global demand for fertilizer by nutrient, market, and major world region in metric tons. Nutrient segments include: nitrogen; phosphate; potassium; and other nutrients such as secondary nutrients, micronutrients, and commercial natural organic fertilizers. Reported markets encompass: agricultural, and commercial and consumer. Major world regions include North America, Western Europe, Asia/Pacific, and all other regions.

To illustrate historical trends, world, nutrient, market, and regional demand (including nutrient and market segments) are provided for 2007, 2012, and 2017. Finally, global production is segmented by major world region and provided for 2007, 2012, 2017, and 2022.

On-site fertilizer production (e.g., animal waste and kitchen scraps) is excluded from the scope of this report. Unless otherwise noted, demand is given in metric tons (nutrient basis) and is evaluated at the manufacturer level. Manufacturer level demand includes any formulation and additives included by the manufacturer in the fertilizer product shipped to distributors, retailers, and secondary formulators such as fertilizer application services or consumer formulators. Additional formulation by distributors, service companies, and end users is excluded.

For any given historical year, US dollar amounts are obtained from values expressed in the applicable local currency. These local currency values are converted to US dollars at the average annual exchange rate for that year. For forecast years, the US dollar amounts assume the same annual exchange rate as that prevailing in 2017.

Other various topics, including profiles of pertinent leading suppliers, are covered in this report. A full outline of report items by page is available in the Table of Contents.
