Innovation into Biofertilizers to Drive Potassium Chloride Market

In the recent years, the demand for bio-fuels has increased tremendously. The demand for bio-fuels is rising due to growing carbon emissions and concerns related to higher oil prices. Bio-fuels help increase the yield of crops and as a result, they are very commonly used in fertilizer production. The growing trend of bio-fuels or biofertilizers in the agriculture industry has created substantial opportunities for potassium chloride, which is used in potash mobilizing biofertilizers. This type of biofertilizers is used to enhance the growth of the plant. The growing use of potassium chloride in potash mobilizing biofertilizers is expected to create new opportunities in the global potassium chloride market.

Geographically, Brazil is the largest supplier of feedstock for biofuels. Growth in this region is anticipated to excite the demand for potash fertilizers from Latin America in the next few years.

Leading companies such as PotashCorp have made significant investments in the brownfield potash expansion projects, which are planned to be launched in the next two years. In addition, according to the statistics by the International Fertilizer Industry Association (IFA), nearly 30 global potash expansion projects have been planned by the manufacturers till date.
