Nitrogen Fertilizer Additives Market: Introduction
Nitrogen fertilizers such as urea and ammonium nitrate fertilizers promote crop growth and enhance crop yield. Upon mixing with soil, nitrogen fertilizers convert to nitrate compounds, which are susceptible to denitrification or leaching, if not consumed within the span of their application. To avoid such loses, nitrogen fertilizer additives are mixed with nitrogen fertilizers to delay the process of fertilizer conversion. The two commonly used types of nitrogen fertilizer additives are urease inhibitors based nitrogen fertilizer additives and nitrification inhibitors based nitrogen fertilizer additives. Among these two nitrogen fertilizer additives, urease inhibitors are used to reduce the volatilization of urea based fertilizers, which is caused by an enzyme called urease. For example, nitrification inhibitor type of nitrogen fertilizer additives are used to temporarily delay or slowdown nitrification by reducing the activity of Nitrosomonas bacteria present in soil.

Nitrogen Fertilizer Additives Market Dynamics:
With the adoption of modern farming techniques across the globe, the demand for agrochemicals has surged to increase the crop yield, which is a major driving factor for the growth of the nitrogen fertilizer additives market. Nitrogen-based fertilizers are consumed during the production of fertilizers to enhance and impart additional properties. The increasing demand for cereals, grains, fruits and vegetables has augmented the demand for nitrogen fertilizer additives across the globe. Thus, agriculture and horticulture together are identified as the key growth driving end-use sectors of the nitrogen fertilizer additives market. Moreover, nitrogen fertilizer additives offer several benefits such as enhanced fertilizer efficiency, cost effectiveness and environmental benefits, among others. Attributing to these benefits, the demand for nitrogen fertilizer additives is expected to increase over the forecast period. However, the complexity involved in the production of nitrogen fertilizer additives and the stringent polices and regulations in developed regions may hamper the growth of the nitrogen fertilizer additives market. The ill-effects of nitrogen fertilizer additives such as leaching and volatility in agricultural soil may restrain the growth of the nitrogen fertilizer additive market with end users opting for substitutes. The product development of nitrogen fertilizer additives has to be in strict compliance with environment management regulatory standards. Thus, major manufacturers and players in the nitrogen fertilizer additives market are emphasizing on the same. A suitable example to advocate this trend has been the launch of high-performance and low toxicity level prototypes of nitrogen fertilizer additives by manufacturers. The prices of nitrogen fertilizer additives are expected to grow moderately during the forecast period.
