Potash fertilizers can be used for many different applications including rice, vegetables, fruits, sugarcane, palm oil, soybean and cotton. It helps in increasing crop yield, nutrient value, and enhances water retention levels and make crops resistant to diseases and harmful pathogens. Potash fertilizers improve the color and flavor of fruit, increases its size, and reduces the occurrence of pests and diseases In addition, it helps in improving the taste and texture of fruit, which is the primary function of potash fertilizer.
The development of potash fertilizer market can be accredited to the need for advanced productivity and increase in the applicability of potash fertilizers. Potash fertilizers are the most widely used source of potassium for agricultural crops other than naturally available potassium present in soil. Apart from this, Potash (MOP) has been referred to as muriate and has great nutrient absorption. Potash fertilizers are used to increase nutrient growth in crops and improve the overall quality of plants. Majority of crops such as plantation crop, and horticulture are fertilized with potassium chloride which is a key driver for the growth of this market. Although the use of potash fertilizer is increasing for potable plants, excessive use results in reducing the soil fertility, and in turn, causes depletion of crop yield in long term. Also, due to price fluctuation, the demand for potash fertilizer has slowed down during the global financial crisis and has been hindering the market growth. The demand for organic food and food products has restrained the use of chemical fertilizers, thus hindering the growth of potash fertilizers.
The potash fertilizer market is bifurcated into crop type, application, type, form and geography. On the basis of crop type, the market is classified into fruits & vegetables, oilseeds & pulses, cereals & grains and others (sugarcane, sugar beet, and fiber crops). On the basis of application, the market is classified into fertigation, foliar and broadcasting. On the basis of type, the market is classified into potassium nitrate, potassium chloride, sulfate of potash (SOP) and others. On the basis of physical form, the market is classified into liquid and solid. Based on geography, market is divided into North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia-Pacific and Middle East & Africa.
