Growth On The Fertilizer Market
Ceresana scrutinized the European market for fertilizers from top to bottom. Due to an improved economic situation and a more responsible use, the market research institute forecasts a moderate increase. Demand is projected to rise by, on average, 1.5% p.a. until 2021.
EU Determining Policy
As a result of the European Union's Common Agricultural Policy (CAP), many European countries have to adhere to the respective guidelines. Requirements that farmers have to fulfil are often updated in regard to environmental protection and overfertilization. Additionally, the planned free trade agreements TTIP with the USA and CETA with Canada would result in major changes in European agriculture. On the one hand agricultural exports might rise, but on the other hand, EU farmers would have to be more attentive to competition and, depending on the terms of the treaties, also prepare for genetically modified seeds.
Growth Market Oil Seeds
The highest growth rate of 3.3% p.a. until 2021 we forecast for the cultivation of oil seeds. These are becoming more and more popular as feedstuff and biological energy source. The cultivation of corn is also increased notably due to the same reasons. The EU would like to oblige countries to produce a larger share of their energy consumption using sustainable resources.
Wheat Continues to Dominate Market
With an acreage of 64.3 million ha wheat is the most widely grown crop and is both a staple food and feedstuffs.
Strong Growth In Eastern Europe
While demand in Western Europe will rise only moderately, we forecast average growth rates of 2% p.a. for Eastern Europe. The lower per hectare consumption of fertilizers in Eastern Europe leaves a much higher untapped potential, resulting in their effects on yields being much more noticeable. Besides, countries of the Eastern European enlargement receive the full agricultural subsidies and can increase investment in equipment and assets.
Most Important Fertilizer Markets: France and Russia
France is the largest consumer of fertilizers. Germany ranks second followed by Russia, which is the country with the by far largest agricultural acreage in Europe. In Northern countries the use of fertilizers is limited due to the cooler climate. Production, however, is dominating by Russia that accounted for more than one third of total European production in 2013.
Plants Need Nitrogen
About 62% of demand is accounted for by nitrogen fertilizers, which enhance plant growth. The most important straight fertilizers are urea and calcium ammonium nitrate. In addition to fertilizing, CAN also helps to prevent am acidification of the soil. Demand for multinutrient fertilizers will develop at slightly higher growth rates than straight fertilizers in the future, which will be increasingly used for fine regulation.
The Study in Brief:
Chapter 1: Markets in 30 European countries are analyzed in detail, including forecasts up to 2021:
- Demand, import, export, production, capacities and revenues in regard to fertilizers
- Demand split by individual nutrients: nitrogen, phosphate and potassium
- European and country-specific demand for the products CAN, urea, UAN, AS/AN and multinutrient fertilizers
- Demand for individual nutrients (N, P, K) split by crops
Chapter 2: Fertilizer application areas are analyzed in detail: Data and influencing factors on demand development are explained in detail. Application areas analyzed are: wheat, corn, other cereal crops, oil seeds, fruits & vegetables, sugar crops, and other crops.
Chapter 3 provides a helpful list of producers: 50 profiles of fertilizer manufacturers clearly arranged according to contact and financial data, product range, production sites, profile summary, product details and capacities, such as Achema AB, Acron Group, Agrofert Holding, a.s., Borealis AG, EuroChem Group, Group DF Limited, GrowHow UK, Grupa Azoty S.A., Grupo Fertiberia, K + S Kali AG, Petrokemija d.d., Togliattiazot JSC, Uralchem OJSC, Uralkali JSC, Yara International ASA, and Zaklady Azotowe Pulawy SA.
