Global Fertilizer Anti-Caking Agents Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Fertilizer anti-caking agents are compounds that prevent fertilizers from caking or clumping together. This is important because it helps to ensure even distribution of the fertilizer and prevents clumps from forming, which can lead to uneven growth in crops.


Powder is a fine, dry solid material and is used as an anti-caking agent in fertilizers. It helps in preventing the formation of lumps or clumps during transportation, storage and application. The product also prevents damage to the fertilizer due to heavy load carrying capacity of trucks transporting it from manufacturer to retailer or end user.


Paste is a colloidal dispersion of solid or semi-solid particles, which is used as an anti-caking agent in fertilizers. It helps in preventing the formation of mud and lumps during fertilizer application. Pasteurization involves heating at a specific temperature to kill all bacteria present in the raw material and make it safe for consumption. This process makes the product sterile and prevents any type of bacterial contamination when it is being mixed with other products like insecticides, fungicides, etc.

Application Insights:

The others application segment held the largest market share of more than 40% in 2017. The anti-caking agents are used for different applications in fertilizers such as for ammonium nitrate, complex and urea. For instance, DAP is widely used as an anti-caking agent for ammonium nitrate fertilizers due to its high stability against ammonia gas formation.

Dolomite is another popularly used filler material in the fertilizer industry owing to its ability to reduce soil acidification caused by heavy metals and organic matter leaching from agricultural land. It can also help improve water holding capacity, which further helps farmers increase crop productivity without increasing their costs significantly.

In terms of revenue, urea dominated the global market with a share of 33% in 2017 owing to high demand from various end-use industries including food & beverage.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific was the largest market for fertilizer anti-caking agents in 2016 and is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period. The region accounts for nearly half of global population and has one of the largest agricultural sectors in terms of production. China, India, Japan, Indonesia, South Korea are some of the major countries with large agricultural output that will drive product demand over the next eight years.

The European market is driven by stringent government regulations regarding environmental pollution caused during manufacturing process as well as disposal practices associated with solid products. Europe has a robust regulatory framework governing both product manufacturing as well distribution channels to ensure high-quality standards among end users coupled with efficient waste management practices by manufacturers and distributors across member states including Germany, U.K.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for high-quality crops: The global population is increasing at a rapid pace, which is resulting in an increased demand for high-quality crops. This is driving the need for fertilizer anti-caking agents to improve the quality of crops.
  • Growing awareness about the benefits of using fertilizer anti-caking agents: There is a growing awareness among farmers about the benefits of using fertilizer anti-caking agents, such as improved crop quality and yield. This is helping to drive the growth of the market.
  • Rising adoption of precision farming techniques: Precision farming techniques help farmers to apply fertilizers and other inputs only where they are needed, thus reducing wastage and improving yields. This is contributing to the growth of the market for fertilizer anti-caking agents.
  • Technological advancements in agriculture: Agricultural technologies are evolving rapidly, with new technologies being developed every day to help farmers improve their productivity and efficiency levels significantly .This is aiding in propellingthe growthofthemarketforfertilizeranti cakingagents . 5
