Flourishing Agricultural Sector in APAC Influencing Phosphate Demand:

After an acute analysis by the analyst, APAC is stated to be the most lucrative marketplace for phosphate, with 45% of the global phosphate market demand originating from this region in 2018. The sheer affluence of APAC is attributable to Indian and Chinese agricultural sectors; major application sector for fertilizers. In 2018, India was the leading country with 27.5% of world imports for natural calcium phosphates and natural aluminum calcium phosphates.

Analyzing the application segment and growth in various end-user verticals, fertilizer segment is estimated as the fastest growing segment, progressing with an application CAGR of 2.10% by 2025. Beside nitrogen, phosphate nutrient fertilizer demand is estimated to be 45,858 tons by 2020, securing the spot for the second most necessary fertilizer conctituent, according to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations. Therefore, with increasing demand for phosphate constituent fertilizer, this segment is anticipated to maintain its apex position among several end-user verticals including feed and food additives, and chemicals.

Phosphate Market Growth Drivers and Trends:

· Global phosphate market have novel entrants in its application segment which is increasing the demand of phosphate. For instance, calcium phosphate derived from phosphate rocks are being applied in manufacturing nutritional supplements for animals. Hence, the flourishing animal feed additive market and cattle feed market attending the global demand for animal-based protein is a driving force adding impetus to global phosphate market size.

· High use of phosphate in Food & Beverages (F&B) sector is elevating its application and influencing the market growth. Phosphate is applied as an added substance for preserving meat, augmenting the shelf life of products. This trend is capitalized by the F&B sector. Application of phosphate as thickening agent in confectionery has also uplifted the phosphate demand in food processing industry.

· Governmental subsidy on phosphate fertilizer is boosting the demand of phosphate. For instance, tracing the requisite application of phosphate for efficient agricultural production, Government of India passed Fertilizer Control Order (FCO) under Essential Commodities Act (EC Act) in 1957 to control sale, pricing and quality of fertilizers.
