Agricultural micronutrients are essential mineral elements that plants use in small amounts, such as zinc (Zn), copper (Cu), manganese (Mn), iron (Fe), boron (B), and molybdenum (Mo). They are primarily used with soil, in foliar sprays, and in fertigation systems to improve agricultural yield and quality. They also aid in plant biological processes and cell growth.
Agriculture Micronutrients Market Dynamics
- Growing focus on the development of high crop yields
One of the key factors driving market growth is the increased emphasis on plant nutrients for successful growth and optimal yields. They also improve sugar translocation and root strength, which aids in the development of large roots and overall plant immunity. Furthermore, they are considered an essential mineral element for nurturing horticultural crops because they act as enzyme cofactors and building blocks that allow plants to build complete proteins and compounds. As a result, their overall global sales are increasing.
- Rising awareness towards food security
Owing to the changing climatic conditions and the ever-present threat of anthropogenic activities, food security has received a lot of attention in recent years. Nowadays, all countries around the world are paying much more attention to food security, and they are all working together to achieve global food security. Food security is concerned not only with the quantity of food consumed by the global population, but also with food quality and variety. These factors necessitate the optimal utilisation of existing farmlands and the maximization of their yield. These can be overcome by using agricultural micronutrients.
Increased deficiency of essential minerals in soil required for plant growth, such as zinc, copper, iron, and others, is a vital factor driving the rise in agricultural micronutrients market. Other major factors driving the growth of agricultural micronutrients market include increasing soil contamination around the world and research activities on developing and introducing low-cost agricultural micronutrients. Technical advancements in agricultural micronutrient production and rapid development are likely to create new opportunities for the agricultural micronutrient market.
High raw material prices, as well as increasing restrictions and regulatory bans, will act as market restraints for the growth of agriculture micronutrients during the forecast period. Less product awareness will act as a restraint further challenging the growth of the agriculture micronutrients market during the forecast period.
