Sulphur coated urea or SCU is a controlled release source of nitrogen which is the most widely used nutrient source that promotes plant growth. Such fertilisers are produced by coating hot urea by molten sulphur polyurethane oil or a microcrystalline wax. The ideal ratio comprises 30%–40% nitrogen and around 20% sulphur. Globally developing agricultural technologies and adoption of scientific methods along with growing demand of agriculture industry products are the prime growth drivers of the Sulfur Coated Urea market.
Geographically, Asia Pacific dominates the Sulfur Coated Urea market, with approximately half of the world’s production being done in China and India and higher consumption in the region because of high agricultural uses in order to increase yield per hectare. Asia-Pacific was followed by North America and Europe as second and third largest market for the sulphur coated urea and are also expected to boost demand for Sulfur Coated Urea owing to the growing demand from the non-agricultural applications. Asia-Pacific is expected to remain the fastest growing region during the period of study due to increasing usage from the non-agricultural applications in major markets like India and China.
