Drivers & Restraints-

Increasing Soil Contamination to Bolster Growth

The global population is surging day by day. It is therefore stressing the food security. Specialty fertilizers are tailor-made, concentrated, and highly efficient. They can easily improve crop yield by offering significant nutrients required by various plants. Apart from that, the surging soil contamination and declining arable land would propel the specialty fertilizers market growth in the upcoming years. However, the expensive nature of customized and micronutrient fertilizers may obstruct the demand for specialized fertilizers.
