Drivers Restraints-

Increasing Usage of DAP in Farming of Fruits Vegetables to Aid Growth

Phosphoric acid is mainly used for the manufacturing of various types of phosphate fertilizers. Diammonium phosphate (DAP) is considered to be the most commonly used phosphatic fertilizers as they possess excellent physical properties and relatively high nutrient content. It is also an important source of nitrogen and phosphorus for plant feeding applications. At the same time, it is extensively utilized for the farming of grains, such as vegetables, fruits, barley, and wheat. However, the rising implementation of stringent norms on the usage of fertilizers may hinder the phosphoric acid market growth in the near future.


FertilizersSegment to Dominate in the Near Future

Based on the application, the fertilizers segment is set to retain its leading position throughout the forthcoming years by procuring the largest phosphoric acid market share. The International Fertilizer Association (IFA), for instance, mentioned that by 2024, the demand for fertilizers is expected to surge by an average rate of 0.7 percent. It will reach approximately 197.1 Mt of nutrients.
