The agricultural micronutrients market is estimated to reach USD 5.83 Billion by 2017, and it is projected to reach USD 8.81 Billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 8.60% from 2017. In terms of volume, the market is projected to reach 1,681.1 KT by 2022. This market is growing in accordance with the increasing soil deficiency and increasing demand for biofuels. Furthermore, the increasing need for effective fertilizers due to poor soil quality and high demand for quality and uniform yield as a result of the increasing population across the globe are expected to drive the growth of the agricultural micronutrients market.

The foliar segment is projected to be the fastest-growing in terms of mode of application. The soil segment is estimated to dominate the agricultural micronutrients market during the forecast period.

The zinc segment is estimated to dominate the agricultural micronutrients market in terms of value. The demand for zinc is high in the Asia Pacific region, as China and other developing countries in this region prefer zinc fertilizers as they improve crop yield and provide economic benefits to the farmers owing to their low prices. The deficiency of zinc in the soil reduces the productivity and growth of agricultural crops. Thus, zinc is added in standard fertilizers and premixes in many developing countries such as China and India which drive the use of zinc as a micronutrient.
