Global demand for agriculture micronutrient has grown extensively due to increasing
deficiency of micronutrient in soil and reduction in agricultural land because of
increased industrialization. Micronutrient deficiency in soil is due to intensive
agricultural practices, land degradation, and extensive use of macronutrient-based
fertilizers. The micronutrient deficiency in crops cannot be identified easily and results
in stunted growth or low productivity of crops. Application of micronutrients in crops
improves overall crop quality and productivity. The global agriculture micronutrient
market has shown tremendous growth over the last five years. On an aggregate basis, zinc,
boron, and manganese had maximum share of the global agriculture market in 2011.

The global micronutrient market in 2011 was dominated by Asia-Pacific. Different modes
of micronutrient application are used by farmers such as soil application, foliar
application, fertigation, seed treatment, and hydroponics. Seed treatment and hydroponics
are relatively newer methodologies for farmers across the globe. Soil application had the
largest market share at 56% of all the application modes. Micronutrient availability in
soil changes with the soil type, climate, cropping pattern, and agriculture techniques.
The requirement of micronutrients depends on the type of soil and crop cultivated.
Micronutrients can be applied in a chelated or non-chelated form. Non-chelated
micronutrient form dominated the global market in 2011. However, the advantages of
chelated micronutrients on crop productivity and quality have given growth opportunities
for these forms of micronutrient. Cereals, fruit, and vegetables consume the largest share
of the agriculture micronutrients market.

The global micronutrient market revenue in 2011 was $3,770.9 million and is expected
to reach $5,995.0 million by 2017, at a CAGR of 8.0%. Asia-Pacific was the largest market
for agriculture micronutrients in 2011 with a consumption of 477.1 KMT. North America
constituted 20% of the total agriculture micronutrient market revenue and is expected to
have fastest growth of 8.9% through 2017. In 2011, Latin American had shown a spectacular
growth in ROW agriculture micronutrient market. Western European countries are expected to
lead the European agriculture micronutrient market by 2017.
