Controlled-release fertilizer (CRF) is a granulated fertilizer that releases nutrients gradually into the soil (i.e., with a controlled release period). The slowness of the release is determined by the low solubility of the chemical compounds in the soil moisture. Since conventional fertilizers are soluble in water, the nutrients can disperse quickly as the fertilizer dissolves. Because controlled-release fertilizers are not water-soluble, their nutrients disperse into the soil more slowly. The fertilizer granules may have an insoluble substrate or a semi-permeable jacket that prevents dissolution while allowing nutrients to flow outward.
The Controlled-release Fertilizer industry concentration is high; there are a few manufacturers in the world, and high-end products mainly from Americas and Europe. In the world wide, giant manufactures mainly distribute in Americas and China such as UPL, Agrium, Kingenta Ecological Engineering Group and Haifa Chemicals.
Duo to the limited downstream consumption of the Controlled-release Fertilizer, it has small production share in fertilizer field, there are a few companies has several plants. Recent years, there are some companies start to research and development the product. The industry will form a much high concentration of global market competition in future. At present, the top five companies account for more than 70% of global market share in Controlled-release Fertilizer field.
The technological level of Controlled-release Fertilizer in China has a big gap compared with the international advanced level. Outstanding performance in product application performance is not outstanding, function is not strong, supporting enough, clean low level, product updates slow, long development cycle. There is little Controlled-release Fertilizer performance in China at or near the international advanced level.
