Phosphate Fertilizer Market Outlook
The global phosphate fertilizer market is expected to expand its roots at an average CAGR of 5.5% by 2022-2032, while it holds a revenue of US$ 65.02 Billion in 2022 and is anticipated to hold a market value of USD 105.27 Billion by the end of 2032.

“Growing agriculture producers that are used as fertilizers around the world coupled with their use on various grains to enhance the quality and improve the growth while promoting the root growth are fueling the sales of phosphate fertilizer in new markets.”

Water restraining quality associated with phosphate helps in making it a better choice to be used as a fertilizer. It helps the plant get growth prospects and nutrients as well, fueling the phosphate fertilizer market growth. Phosphate fertilizer helps the whole plant growth and development including the ripening of seed and fruit. Demand for phosphate fertilizer is attributed to factors like factors shifting from traditional fertilizers to smart fertilizers.

Global study on phosphate fertilizer market explains that the regions that are dry and low in moisture levels demand phosphate fertilizers, the farmers try to use phosphate fertilizer on their crops to enhance the cultivation experience and deliver effective crop production. Other factors that trigger the sales of phosphate fertilizer are rising with the farming and irrigation technologies getting advanced with the latest farming trends. This advanced approach is there because of the decline in global crop production due to the changing climate and poor soil quality.

See my previous post below on $IFOS.V, a "catalyst-rich phosphate pick" - please DYODD, always happy to answer any questions that I can.

In my opinion there are some real ESG concerns when it comes from Phosphate.

I did some research into phosphate when a NZ company proposed seabed mining in NZ waters (application was denied) and discovered that a huge amount of phosphate is produced in Morocco or more accurately in a region called Western Sahara which is a turbulent place to put it mildly.

With climate change increasingly affecting traditional food producing methods, I think there will be more demand for fertiliser as producers utilise new growing techniques inside to mitigate full crop loss to weather events but if your portfolio is ESG based you’ll need to do a bit of research on where their phosphate is sourced.

@odysseus ESG is a mostly scam, thanks.

@odysseus Thank you, Oliver. I was just speaking with someone in the energy industry this morning regarding the Canadian governments new emission regulations for the fertilizer industry. I'm doing some research now for a piece on the use of CCUS and the role it will play in the fertilizer industry. I find there are ESG downsides to almost everything; when I was invested in ERTH.CN ( which is considered organic and sustainable, a European fertilizer expert criticized it for the rock phosphate component. Apparently the European restrictions are quite different than they are in Canada in that regard. It's impressive to see continual progress being made, and that will only increase going forward. I will ensure I have a look at their source of phosphate, thank you!
