The Latin America Phosphatic Fertilizers Market is estimated to grow at CAGR of 1.9 %, in the period of 2014 to 2019. Phosphorus is the 11th most abundant element in the earth’s crust. However, the soil from which plants obtain phosphorus contains only small amounts of it. There is no other substitute for phosphorus in agriculture. If soils are deficient in phosphorus, food production is restricted, unless the nutrient is added in the form of fertilizers. Hence, to increase food production, an adequate amount of phosphorus is required.


Commercial phosphate fertilizers are manufactured using phosphate rock. Approximately two- third of the world phosphate resources are derived from sedimentary and marine phosphate rock deposits. About 90% of the global phosphate rock demand is used to produce food. Phosphorus is scarce and phosphate rock is a non-renewable resource. Market forces and political regulations can have a profound impact on the availability of Phosphatic fertilizers.


Latin America Phosphatic Fertilizers Market is dominated by Brazil, followed by other Latin America Countries. Brazil’s rising population coupled with changes in dietary pattern has increased the demand for various food items. The ever increasing population demands increase in the supply of food and its variety. The increase in supply of food is achieved by application of fertilizers in the agricultural process.


The Latin America Phosphatic Fertilizers market is competitive market, with firms such as Yara International ASA (Norway), Mosaic Co. (US), PhosAgro (Russia), EuroChem (Russia) and Israel Chemical Ltd. (Israel) among others, which are expanding their market share in Latin America region.

Fertilizers are used to help the growth of crops, and are usually used when the soil lacks the necessary nutrients. Fertilizers are used to supplement soil's nutrient requirements, and are applied in a form that is quickly absorbed by the crops. Phosphorous works as an energizer for plants, and also plays an important role in photosynthesis and reproduction. Plants also require phosphate for the transfer of genetic code, seed development, and all energy reactions. Proper phosphate application using Phosphatic fertilizers results in early reduced surface moisture loss, increased weed competition and canopy closure which in turn leads to optimum crop yields.


The Latin American agricultural sector is well advanced as it enjoys abundant land area under cultivation and sufficient rainfall. There have been rapid developments in the agricultural techniques in this region, due to appropriate geographic and climatic conditions. The demand for various food items has been increasing in the region, due to the growth in the population and their changing dietary preferences.This demand has led to the rise in demand for raw material required for these food items, which can achieved by the application of Phosphatic fertilizers in the cultivation.


On the other hand, the production capacity and quality of the produce has increased, due to major advancements in the agricultural technology and modern day practices. This translates into the reduction of wastage of fertilizers, and hence reduces its use. Furthermore, the phosphate rock reserves are depleting in the region, thus posing a threat to the supply side of raw materials needed for phosphate fertilizer production.


The Latin American Phosphatic fertilizers market, by type, was valued at $8,646.91 million in 2014, and is projected to reach $9504.07 million by 2019 at a CAGR of 1.9% from 2014 to 2019. The market, by consumption, was led by superphosphate in 2014, with a 61.42% share. It is projected to reach a volume of 11,024.8 9KT at a CAGR of 2.4% during the forecast period. The monoammonium phosphate (MAP) fertilizers market is estimated to grow at the CAGR of 2.0% by consumption through 2019. Brazil is a key market for phosphatic fertilizers in the Latin American region. The grains and oilseeds segment held the greatest share of the phosphatic fertilizers market, in terms of application, in 2014.
