Phosphate Rock Market Size 2021 to 2030

Growth Factors

The increasing demand from the agriculture industry, along with the growing population, is anticipated to fuel the market growth over the forecast period. According to the United Nations, the world population increased by 1.1% from 2017 to 2018 and is projected to reach 9.8 billion in 2050. This is expected to drive the demand for phosphate fertilizers to support the food needs, which, in turn, is expected to propel the utilization of phosphate rock over the coming years. Moreover, growing animal feed production is projected to support the market growth over the coming years.

Phytase is a growing alternative for phosphate feed owing to the high costs of phosphate feeds. It is a vital ingredient in animal feed and affects reproduction, growth, and feed cost. Most of the natural phosphate is unavailable to animals, thus it is important to add inorganic phosphate in diets to compensate for natural phosphate needs. In such cases, phytase is added to improve performance and reduce the cost of animal feed. These benefits of phytase are further expected to affect the market dynamics

Increasing demand from fertilizers is anticipated to boost the demand for phosphate rock over the forecast period. The rising global population, coupled with the growing food industry, is expected to drive the need for grains and cereals over the coming years.

By Application Analysis

The fertilizers segment accounted for the largest share of over 75.0% in 2021, in terms of revenue. The segment is projected to grow in the years to come owing to the increasing demand from the agricultural industry due to the growing population across the world.

Meat and dairy are the major sources of protein to ensure healthy food for the ever-growing world population. The processed phosphoric acid and limestone are fed into a high-speed mixer to create a homogenous mixture, which is then dried and packed for the end-users.

Hydroponics has been gaining worldwide attention owing to the quality food production and proper resource management. Soil-based farming is facing challenges such as climate change, natural disasters, and declining fertility of the land. In such cases, hydroponics can be greatly beneficial as it involves cultivating plants in nutrient solutions. 

By Regional Analysis

Asia Pacific accounted for the largest volume share of over 45.0% in 2021 due to diversified food needs in populous and emerging countries, such as India and China. The growing demand for food in the region is expected to fuel the utilization of fertilizers in order to increase the efficiency of crop production, which is anticipated to boost the demand for phosphate rock over the coming years. 

The agriculture sector in APAC is expanding and the population is mainly dependent on the domestic farming sector. These factors are encouraging farmers to increase land productivity by using several soil inputs, thus propelling the regional market growth.
