Controlled-release fertilizers are synthetic fertilizers, usually encased in polymers or resins, and release nutrients over a specific period of time. They are also known as time-released fertilizers. Controlled-release fertilizers follow the principle method to cover a conventional soluble fertilizer with a protective coating (of a water-insoluble, semi-permeable or impermeable-with-pores) material. Such coating controls the water penetration, thus the rate of dissolution, and hence the rate of dissolution of nutrition release is synchronized with the plants’ need.

The segmentation of the controlled-release fertilizers market is based on the types of controlled-release fertilizers. The study considers condensation products of urea, coated & encapsulated fertilizers, N-stabilizers and others in this research report. The market is further segmented on the basis of crop type which includes cereals & oilseeds, turf & ornamentals, fruits & vegetables and others.

The market is driven by factors such as high efficiency in crop production, ease of application, reduced application cost, environment-friendly properties drives the controlled-release fertilizers market. The Asia-Pacific market is projected to have the highest CAGR. Growth in population and the increasing demand for food products/materials and shortage of arable land in countries in Asia-Pacific region has resulted in the growth of the controlled-release fertilizers market in the Asia-Pacific.
