Success is in our chemistry
Chemical Fertilizer is one of the inputs
used to meet the increasing nutrition and shelter needs due to the rapidly
increasing population and rising living standards in the global sense, and to
meet the food and agricultural products and to buy more and more quality
products from the unit area.
Global fertilizer production is shaped according to raw material sources and consumption regions. Countries with large agricultural lands and densely populated areas such as China, India, Russia, the USA and Canada have significant production capacity. Countries with phosphate rock (North America, Central and North African countries) have excess production in phosphorus fertilizers. Approximately 199 million tons of NPK (Nitrogen-Phosphate-Potassium) was produced in the world in 2015, with the largest share held by nitrogen-based fertilizers with 57%.
World nitrogen fertilizer production is 114 million tons in 2015, 52% of which is met from China, India and the USA. In the same year, out of total NPK export amounting to 90.6 million tons, China and Russia accounted for 38% of nitrogen (41 million tons) and 47% of phosphorus (17.5 million tons), while 51% of potassium (32.3 million tons) was covered by Canada and Russia. Nitrogen constitutes 43% of the total NPK imports, which is 88.5 million tons globally. 36% out of the nitrogen import of 38,5 million tons, was realized by the USA, India and Brazil. NPK fertilizer consumption, which increased by 20% compared to 2005, was approximately 184 million tons as of 2015 where China ranked first with the consumption of 51 million tons.
