Market outlook of the fertilizers market in Thailand

Fertilizers are used to prompt the growth of plant and also in increasing the crop yield. They help plants in holding the soil, thereby reduce soil erosion. The market research analyst has estimated that the consumption of fertilizers in Thailand was 2.74 million metric tons in 2014 and is expected to reach a volume of 3.34 million metric tons in 2019, growing at a CAGR of more than 4%. Agriculture is one of the major source of the economy in Thailand, wherein more than 60% of the population is involved in agriculture.

The increasing population in Thailand every year has increased the demand for food, thereby increasing the production and consumption of fertilizers in the country. The consumers are expanding their diets with these dietary changes manifested in the form of increased demand for grain-intensive animal protein and dairy products. However, with the decline in arable land, it is difficult for farmers to increase productivity enough to cater to the high demand for food. Therefore, farmers are increasingly depending on fertilizers to improve plant growth and yields.

Segmentation of the fertilizers market in Thailand by product

  • Nitrogen
  • Phosphate
  • Potash

In 2014, the nitrogen segment led the market with a share of over 63% and this segment is likely to retain their top position through 2019. Corn, sugarcane, and cassava crops use significant amount of nitrogen fertilizers in Thailand, which is one of the main reasons influencing the market growth. Moreover, the growth in the nitrogen fertilizer market is majorly driven by imports from the Middle East countries (Saudi Arabia, Oman, Qatar, and Kuwait), Malaysia, and the US.
