By type, the urea-ammonium nitrate segment is projected to dominate the specialty fertilizers market during the forecast period.

UAN is considered to be an excellent irrigation fertilizer for cereal production and irrigated plant cultivation. It is basically used before plowing the field, which helps in enhancing its degradation. Solutions of urea ammonium nitrate (UAN) are widely used as a source of nitrogen for plant nutrition. In combination with plant protective agents, it is mixed in the irrigation water for irrigated plant cultivation. Fluid fertilizers are blended together to meet the specific needs of a crop. Its advantage is that it contains both fast (nitrate-nitrogen) and slow (ammonium nitrogen and amide nitrogen) components, just as ammonium nitrate and urea.

South America is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period.

The market for specialty fertilizers in the South America region is projected to grow at the highest CAGR from 2019 to 2025. According to FAOSTAT, Brazil is the largest producer of agricultural products due to the availability of abundant land and rural labor force, followed by Argentina . The growth in South America is majorly attributed to the increase in the adoption of agrochemicals and advancements in farming techniques in Brazil and Argentina with distribution channels established by global agrochemical players. Due to these factors, the market in the South America region is projected to record the highest growth from 2019 to 2025.
