Thecatalysts fertilizers market size is poised to grow at a CAGRof almost 3% during the period 2019-2023, according to the latest marketresearch report by Technavio.
The production, transportation, and utilization of fertilizerscontribute largely to GHG emissions, especially carbon dioxide and nitrousoxide emissions. Thus, growing environmental concerns have led to a significantincrease in the number of initiatives by governments of several countries. Thishas increased the demand for catalysts for fertilizers as they can enhance theperformance of fertilizers and decrease their carbon footprint. Metals, such asrhodium, iron, cobalt, and palladium, are widely used as catalysts in thefertilizer industry. Thus, with the rising environmental concerns and effortstoward producing low-emission fertilizers, the demand for catalysts is expectedto increase, which will fuel market growth during the forecast period.
As per Technavio, the growing capacities of fertilizerproduction units will have a positive impact on the market and contribute toits growth significantly over the forecast period. This research report alsoanalyzes other important trends and market drivers that will affect marketgrowth over 2019-2023.
