The size of the market for metal chelates market is projected to reach USD 619.5 Million by 2022, growing at a CAGR of around 8.54% from 2016. The global market has grown exponentially in the last few years. Decrease in soil quality and pH level, increasing demand for high production and growing awareness about the nutrient deficiencies and its impact are the major drivers for the market.

On the basis of type, the metal chelates market is segmented into primary nutrients, secondary nutrients, micronutrients, and other nutrients (amino acid, humic acid & fulvic acid). The micronutrients was the largest segment in 2015, followed by primary nutrients. The micronutrients is also the fastest growing segment during forecast period.

The fruits & vegetables, on the basis of crop type, is projected to grow at a significant rate during the forecast period. As fruits and vegetables are the sensitive crops, they can get completely damaged due to the nutrient deficiencies in the soil. The awareness among farmers about the importance of nutrients for these crops, and the increasing demand for fruits and vegetables will drive the metal chelates market’s growth.

On the basis of mode of application, the global market is segmented into soil, foliar and fertigation. The foliar segment is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Foliar is easy, economical and time-effective mode. Hence, the foliar mode has become popular among farmers.

Metal Chelates Market

The Asia-Pacific market is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period, owing to the increasing awareness about the modern agricultural practices. The growing demand for food is also driving the metal chelates market. Growth is majorly witnessed in China, India, Australia, and New Zealand, due to increase in the demand for, awareness about, and adoption of modern agricultural practices.

The major restraints of the metal chelates market include the impact of non-biodegradable metal chelates. The market has a number of large and small-scale firms. Expansion and agreements were the key strategies adopted by market players to ensure their growth. Leading players in the global metal chelates market are BASF SE (Germany), Akzo Nobel N.V. (The Netherlands), Syngenta AG (Switzerland), Nufarm Limited (Australia), and Haifa Chemicals Limited (Israel).
