Market driver: increasing popularity of nitrogen fertilizers propelling demand for fertilizer additives

Market trend: novel method of fertilizer additive production

The global fertilizer additives market has observed an unusual method in the production of fertilizer additives. The novel method of fertilizer additive production consists of recycled alkaline batteries to recover micronutrients. Novel methods of fertilizer additive production are gaining prominence even though the concept of production of fertilizer additive using a metal battery seems unusual. The method enables the growth of stronger and healthier plants. The manganese and zinc materials in alkaline batteries are cleaned and sized to be used as fertilizer additives.

Fertilizer additives produced using alkaline batteries are being used to increase the yield of crops and also to add value to the crops (nutritional). Moreover, different food associations have approved and recommended this method of fertilizer additive production. Recycling of batteries has also contributed to the increasing prominence of the production of fertilizer additives from alkaline batteries.

Market challenge: escalating prices of fertilizers hampering market growth

In regions such as EMEA and APAC, the increase in prices of fertilizers has posed a challenge to the global fertilizer additives market. In countries such as India, tax reforms such as the goods and services tax (GST) is decreasing the demand for fertilizers. The fluctuations in the tax rates have led to the decrease in a number of farmers opting for fertilizers. The rise in the cost of fertilizers has led to increased retail prices of fertilizer additives due to the high cost of cultivation and imbalance in the use of fertilizers.
