Key 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.


Fertilizers Segment 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.

List of the Leading Companies Profiled in the Global Market are:

Rising Agricultural Activities to Help Asia Pacific Lead in Upcoming Years

Geographically, Asia Pacific is anticipated to remain at the forefront in the upcoming years. It generated USD 16,801.5 million in 2020 in terms of revenue. This growth is attributable to the rising consumer spending, agricultural activities, expansion of the chemical industry, and government initiatives. In emerging nations, such as China, the demand for this acid would increase because of the presence of numerous end-use industries.

On the other hand, in 2020, Europe and North America together held more than 20% of the global market. The surging usage of phosphoric acid as animal feed and food additives in both regions would accelerate growth.
