Rising fertilizer consumption in order to improve soil fertility is expected to augment DAP demand over the forecast period. Fertilizer production is the foremost application and accounts for more than two-thirds of the DAP consumption, whereas other applications including water treatment chemicals, food additives, pesticides, livestock feed supplements and detergents account for the remaining market share. Decreasing arable land coupled with the ever growing demand for food has resulted in rising need for good quality soil to increase crop yield. In addition, rising demand of firefighting products and growth in wine industry are anticipated to be key factors driving market growth. However, rising awareness concerning use of bio-based eco-friendly fertilizers, fluctuating raw material prices and access to natural gas & phosphate rock are expected to fuel fertilizer production and in turn drive DAP market growth over the forecast period.
