CROF and CRIF use low solubility fertilizers, thus they are released at a controlled rate into the soil.) and synthetic organic compounds (urea formaldehyde (UF), isobutylene-diurea (IBDU), urea acetaldehyde/cyclo diurea (CDU)). Coated granular CRFs are further segmented to organic polymer coating materials (for instance, thermoplastics, and resins) and inorganic coating materials (including sulfur and other minerals). polyolen, rubber etc.Market SegmentationThe global controlled-release fertilizers market is segmented by type, mechanism, crop type, and region. CRCU are sub-segmented into CRCU with a sulfur-based coating material, CRCU with a polymer-based coating material, CRCU with a superabsorbent coating material (hydrogel), and CRCU with bio-composite coating material among other.Controlled release fertilizers are categorized into controlled release organic fertilizer (CROF), controlled release inorganic fertilizers (CRIF), water-soluble fertilizer coated by the physical barrier, which controls its release is also known as controlled release coated fertilizers (CRCF), controlled release coated urea fertilizer (CRCU), and others. CRCU segment dominate the market owing to advantages of urea-based fertilizer such as high nitrogen content (46%), low cost, and ease of application. The matrix coating is further segmented into hydrophobic matrix coating (e. KG(Germany), COMPO EXPERT (Germany), Ekompany (Netherlands), Haifa Chemicals Ltd. CROF are sub-segmented into natural organic compounds (animal manure, sewage sludge etc. Moreover, controlled release coated urea fertilizers (CRCU) are gaining huge popularity due to the extensive use urea as fertilizer on account of its high nitrogen content (46%), low cost, and ease of application. These fertilizers improve efficiency, increase crop yield, and reduce potential losses to the environment. lawns. hazardous emissions.On the basis of the crop type, the global controlled release fertilizers market is segmented into ornamental . CRCF is the most widely used fertilizer segment and is expected to drive the global controlled release fertilizers market majorly. (Canada), Yara International ASA (Norway), Koch Agronomic Services, LLC. Additionally, they inhibit nutrient loss, seed toxicity . .g. Additionally, increasing efforts towards sustainable agriculture is expected to drive the controlled release fertilizer market over the forecast period. The agriculture application accounted for the largest market share under crop type in 2017 on account of growing need for food production due to expanding population across the globe and is likely to continue growing over the forecast period 2018-202. CRIF are sub-segmented into metal ammonium phosphates (KNH4PO4 and MgNH4PO4), and partially acidulated phosphate rock (PAPR).Regional AnalysisThe global controlled-release fertilizers market is spanned across five regions: Asia Pacific, North America, Europe, Latin America, and the Middle East and Africa.S.S.,) and hydrophilic matrix coating (hydrogels). Moreover, technological innovations in the agriculture industry is expected to find quick solutions to the CRFs limitations and enhance its marketing issues over the forecast period. Diffusion mechanism of controlled release of fertilizers accounted to hold a singificant share of the market in 2017 due to its advantages over osmosis mechanism such more controlled release rate and high consumption of polymer-based controlled release fertilizers over sulfur-based fertilizers. nurseries, agriculture, and turf . They offer several advantages such as saving fertilizer quantity and labor since a single application is required for the growing season and improve soil quality and germination rates.Rapidly expanding global population is expected to be the key driver of the controlled release fertilizers market during the forecast period
