US Demand for Fertilizers to Total 28.1 Million Metric Tons in 2021

CLEVELAND, June 26, 2017 — US demand for fertilizers is forecast to total 28.1 million metric tons in 2021, according to Fertilizers: United States, a report recently released by Freedonia Focus Reports. Demand for nitrogen fertilizer – the largest type segment – is forecast to drop due to falling acreage of corn.

Further losses will be prevented by the requirement for annual application of nitrogen fertilizer, along with strong demand for organic food items, which will preclude decreases in demand for organic fertilizer.

These and other key insights are featured in Fertilizers: United States. This report forecasts US fertilizer demand in metric tons of nutrients to 2021. Total demand is segmented by fertilizer type in terms of:

  • nitrogen
  • phosphate
  • potash
  • organic
  • other fertilizers such as secondary nutrients and other micronutrients

Total demand is also segmented by application as follows:

  • corn
  • wheat
  • soybean
  • cotton
  • other agriculture, such as fruits and vegetables
  • non-agriculture, such as landscaping

To illustrate historical trends, total demand and the various segments are provided in annual series from 2006 to 2016.
