top fertiliser companies in india


Chambal Fertilisers and Chemicals Ltd, Coromandel International Limited, Rama Phosphates Limited, The Dharamsi Morarji Chemical Co. Ltd., Deepak Fertilizers & Petrochemicals Corporation Ltd., Zuari Agro Chemicals Ltd., National Fertilizers Ltd., and Gujarat State Fertilizers & Chemicals Limited, among others, are the major players in the India fertilizer market.


As per the analysis by Expert Market Research, the India fertilizer market reached a value of INR 841.2 billion in 2021. The market is further expected to grow at a CAGR of 4.7% in the forecast period of 2022-2027, to reach INR 1108.1 billion in 2027, owing to the growing demand for food.


A fertilizer is a substance, either natural or artificial, applied to soil or plant tissues to supply nutrients to the plants. Both natural and artificial sources of fertilizer are plentiful. A natural or artificial material called fertilizer contains chemical components that support plant growth and productivity. Fertilizers either increase the soil's inherent fertility or replace chemical elements that crops had earlier lost.


The India fertilizer market is anticipated to grow over time as agricultural productivity is increased to meet the country's expanding population's demand for food. The market's productivity is rising as a result of the positive seasonal rain, irrigation systems, and various government initiatives. These initiatives are aimed at expanding credit availability, boosting investments, building market facilities, encouraging the development of infrastructure, and raising the supply of high-quality inputs to the industry. On the other hand, it is anticipated that the amount of arable land will decrease as urbanisation levels rise.


Fertilizers are expected to increase the average agricultural yields per hectare. It is also anticipated that the consumption of fertilizers will rise in the upcoming years. This is due to the growing number of government and non-government awareness campaigns to inform farmers about the advantages of fertilizers and the promotion of fertilizers through radio, television, and customised rural workshops. Increased rural incomes and easy access to financing are also likely to have a positive effect on the India fertilizer market. Contract farming is anticipated to have a favourable effect on fertilizer usage since the farmer is expected to receive input from the food processor (contractor) in the form of technology and training.
