 Thailand Complex Fertilizer Market

The fertilizer consumption in Thailand has remained at low levels as compared to other Asian countries such as China, India, Vietnam and Indonesia. However, inclining population and food demand has resulted in increase in consumption of complex fertilizers in the country. Despite rise in demand, Thailand has not been able to achieve sufficient production levels of complex fertilizers. Thus, imports play a crucial role in the Thailand Complex Fertilizer Industry. Production capability is very limited with most of the straight fertilizers being imported in the country and used for bulk blending. Raw materials for manufacturing complex fertilizers are almost entirely imported by the country due to lack of necessary raw materials domestically. Production of complex fertilizers inclined at a steady pace in the last five years to meet the domestic demands of the country. In fact, production of complex fertilizers increased from ~ million MT in 2012 to ~ million MT by 2017. This represented growth at a CAGR of ~% during the period 2012-2017. The market for complex fertilizers grew from USD ~ million in 2012 to USD ~ million in 2017, representing growth at a CAGR of ~% during the period 2012-2017.

Competition Scenario

Thailand’s chemical fertilizer market is highly competitive with top 5 players comprising over ~% of the market share, in terms of revenue in 2017. The market is largely import based with very limited domestic manufacturing capabilities. Raw materials are almost entirely imported in the country. As a result, some of the leading European countries have resorted to importing and distributing complex fertilizer products in the country rather than setting up production units. Traders largely imported finished fertilizers and subsequently marketed them.

Thai Central Chemical Public Company was the largest players operating in this space. It imported majority of the raw materials and produced both granulated and blended complex fertilizers. As of 2017, the company had ~% market share in the overall complex fertilizer market, in terms of revenue. Yara International, ICL Fertilizers and Chia Tai were other leading players in this sector. All these companies do not have any manufacturing facility in Indonesia and only imported and supplied complex fertilizers to the domestic market. Yara, ICL and Chia Tai accounted for ~%, ~% and ~% market share in 2017, respectively. Terragro Fertilizer Company had manufacturing unit for complex fertilizers in Thailand and comprised for ~% market share in 2017.

Thailand Complex Fertilizer Market Future Outlook and Projections

Despite dependence on external factors as machinery, raw materials and energy, Thailand’s complex fertilizer industry will remain just as indispensable to the future of economic development as it has been during the past decades. Thailand, after all, is an agricultural country. Besides, its fertilizer use per hectare of land is still well below other Asian countries. Consumption of complex fertilizers in Thailand is expected to grow at a CAGR of ~% during the period 2017-2022. Ken Research estimates the consumption of complex fertilizer to grow in the next five years, rising from ~ million MT in 2018 to ~ million MT by 2022. Average selling prices of NPKs are most likely to improve 2018 onwards owing to recovery in agricultural commodities’ prices and rise in prices of raw materials. Complex fertilizers market is anticipated to be worth USD ~ million by 2022 rising from USD ~ million in 2018. This represents growth at a CAGR of ~% during the period 2017-2022.
