By crop type, the fruits & vegetables segment is projected to be the fastest-growing segment in the agricultural micronutrients market during the forecast period.

The trend in the consumers for consuming fruits has witnessed a growth in the past two decades, and this trend is projected to continue in the coming years. The increasing exports of fruits & vegetables have led to rise an increase in the crop plantation area, which has resulted in a rise in their production levels. Hence, the crop sustaining and protecting the micronutrients market for fruits & vegetables is projected to witness significant growth.

By type, the zinc segment is projected to dominate the agricultural micronutrients market during the forecast period.

Soil nutrient deficiencies of zinc are vastly recorded in regions of Asia (India, China, and Indonesia), sub-Saharan Africa and the northwestern region of South America.

According to a report on "Scarcity of micronutrients in soil, feed, food, and mineral reserves" by "The Platform for Agriculture, Innovation & Society," an estimated 800,000 people die every year from zinc deficiency, moreover growth retardation, loss of appetite, and impaired immune function is rising amongst zinc deficient people. The mineral reserves for raw material supply, seem to be most restrictive for zinc. At the current production rates of mining, the known reserves are sufficient for only 21 years. Thus, the market for the same is driven towards growth, as it is an important micronutrient and the governments across the globe are making efforts to curb its deficiency through increasing its content in the agricultural produce.

By form, the chelated segment is projected to be the fastest-growing segment in the agricultural micronutrients market during the forecast period.

Chelated micronutrients are organic molecules that combine with metal cation to form a ring-like structure. Chelated micronutrients are available in different ranges of soil pH. Some of the most used chelating agents during the production of synthetic micronutrient chelates are diethylene-triamine Penta-acetic acid (DTPA), ethylenediamine-N, N?-bis (2-hydroxyphenyl acetic acid) (EDDHA), and ethylene diamine-tetra-acetic acid (EDTA). Moreover, due to the stable nature of chelated compounds, the adoption of chelated micronutrients is projected to grow at a faster pace.
