The North America Phosphatic Fertilizers Market is estimated to grow at CAGR of 0.64 %, 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.


North America Phosphatic Fertilizers Market is dominated by US, followed by Canada and Mexico. US is the biggest consumer of meat and meat products. Here, apart from human consumption the grains are also in demand for producing animal feed for the meat industry. The increased demand can only be met by increasing the agricultural productivity, which can be achieved by use of fertilizers for grain production.

Fertilizers have become an indispensable nutrient for higher crop yield world over. Among key nutrients essential for growth of plants, phosphorus plays a vital role in the transfer of energy, resulting into rapid crop maturity and quality improvement. It enables growth by stimulating cell differentiation, development of tissues, and is involved in the formation of sugars, oils, starches, etc. in plants. It is found that majority of agricultural and natural soil lack in desired phosphorus content. Scarcity of this essential element from the soil has resulted in growing demand of phosphorus through Phosphatic fertilizer. Phosphatic fertilizers are made from phosphate rock, a non-renewable source, whose global demand is increasing continuously. North America dominates the industry being the largest producer and consumer of Phosphatic fertilizers.


Growing demand of phosphate rock matched by its limited availability is turning producers into buyers like the US, who has large domestic reserves. But increased domestic demand for phosphate rock and phosphate fertilizer has turned it into net importer from being the largest phosphate producers for the global market. The Phosphatic fertilizer industry is fragmented and relies heavily upon crop yield, farmer awareness, and availability of credit. Rising global food demand and domestic biofuel mandates have created competition among the players to supply phosphate fertilizer for limited farmland.


The demand of phosphatic fertilizer is driven by continued world population growth and increasing income which leads to alternative energy sources, bio fuel development, increased recycling of organic nutrient. The key factors influencing the global phosphatic fertilizer supply include a shift towards organic fertilizers, decline in phosphate reserves, government trade policies and environmental concerns. Phosphatic fertilizer industry has to meet the rising needs of population without compromising with the protection of environment, preservation of bio-diversity and mitigation of climate change.


The North American phosphatic fertilizers market, by type, was valued at $ 4,321.38 million in 2014 and is projected to reach $ 4,462.05 million by 2019 at a CAGR of 0.64% during the forecast period. The market, by consumption, was led by Mono-ammonium phosphate in 2014, with a 40.78% share. It is projected to reach a volume of 2,928.77 KT at a CAGR of 1.1% through the forecasted period. The Di-ammonium phosphate fertilizers market is estimated to grow at the highest CAGR of 0.53% through 2019. The U.S. is a key market for phosphatic fertilizers in the North American region. The grains & oilseeds segment held a greater share of 64.72% in the Phosphatic fertilizers market, in terms of application, in 2014.
