Key Factors Shaping the Potassium Sulphate Market
- Increasing Inclination of Farmers towards Better Crop Production
Incessant promotional activities by governments have raised significant awareness among farmers regarding the use of novel value-added fertilizers. These newly formulated fertilizers offer high efficiency. Farmers are now adopting potassium sulphate or sulphate of potash (SOP)-based fertilizers in order to increase their crop yields in their limited lands.
- Superior Quality Makes Potassium Sulphate a Preferred Choice
Sulphate of potash is being preferred as a fertilizer because of its exceptional performance and properties. SOP offers many advantages, such as, increased crop yield, ease of usage in plants, as well as adequate sulphur and potassium content, among others. That apart, SOP usage reduces the toxic effects of chloride build up in soil, especially in dry conditions. Due to its soluble nature, SOP finds applications in fertigation and drip irrigation, which help in conserving fresh water resources. As a consequence, SOP fertilizers are rapidly replacing conventional fertilizers and expected to witness increasing adoption across the globe in the years ahead.
- High Cash Crops Sales with Rising Awareness among Customers
In recent years, there has been growth in awareness pertaining to health and environmental issues. The demand for almonds, cashews, fruits, and other nutrient crops has grown robustly, especially in the U.S. and EU, in the last decade. Consumers are becoming aware about the quality, safety and nutrient value of the food they eat. This sudden consumer focus on high nutrient crops increases the sales of these crops in the region, which in turn, increases the sales of SOP.
- Government Subsidies for Sustainable Agriculture Spurring the Demand
Governments are increasingly recognizing the potential of SOP as a fertilizer in sustainable agricultural development. They are supporting its growth through targeted subsidies and by increasing investments in research and development programs. Moreover, governments are providing capital investment to manufacturers for setting up technologically-advanced production plants.
