Boron fertilizer is a micronutrient fertilizer that contains boron in it. Boron is a micronutrient required in small quantities for the decent growth of a plant and good yield. Growing awareness regarding the importance of boron in maintaining soil profile and nutritional balances of plants propels the growth of the market. However, the lack of awareness among farmers regarding the use of boron fertilizers and other micronutrients for proper crop growth and yield enhancement hampers the adoption of boron fertilizers in developing and least developed countries.
In 2020, Asia-Pacific accounted for the largest share in the global boron fertilizers market. The boron fertilizer industry in the countries across this region has experienced a huge shift over the years. The market growth in Asia-Pacific is driven by the increasing awareness among the farmers regarding the importance of micronutrients coupled with the rising production of fruits and vegetables in the region. In the Asia-Pacific, there is a significant decrease in arable land due to rapid urbanization. This generates the need to conversion and utilization of the remaining portion of infertile and barren land for agricultural purposes by infusing effective micronutrients such as boron, iron, zinc, and others into the soil. The rise in focus toward land efficiency demands the use of micronutrients, such as boron fertilizers.
The COVID-19 outbreak is adversely affecting economies and industries in various countries due to lockdowns, travel bans, and business shutdowns. The global agriculture industry is one of the significant industries suffering severe disruptions such as supply chain breaks, labor shortage, and uncertain demand. The shutdown of various plants and factories is disrupting the global supply chains and negatively impacting the manufacturing activities, delivery schedules, and products sales in the global market. A few companies have already announced possible delays in product deliveries and slump in future sales of their products. In addition, the global travel bans imposed by countries in Europe, Asia-Pacific, and North America are hindering the business collaborations and partnerships opportunities. All these factors are affecting the fertilizers industry in a negative manner, which is restraining the growth of various markets related to this industry. However, COVID-19 vaccine has been developed by several companies across the globe. Many countries have started recovering from severe disruptions caused by COVID-19. With the introduction of vaccine, there is an ease in the restrictions imposed by governments. So, the global supply chain, manufacturing activities and product sales are getting back to normal. Therefore many fertilizer manufacturing companies have started their production, and research and development activities again.

Soil is one of the essentials required for farming since it offers nutrients to the plant. Healthy soil entails all the elements for the growth of a crop. Soil containing less nutrients either decreases the production or degrades the quality of agricultural products. Therefore, the quantity and proportion of macro and micronutrients in soil are essential to determine the health of soil. Soil health plays a major role in safeguarding significant production by enhancing the utilization of fertilizer and reducing its waste. Most of the growing area in developed countries has good productive soil with good organic matter; but, its fertility has gone down with increased production. Rising micronutrient deficiency in the soil, shifting consumer preference toward nutrient-rich foods, and growing population are the key factors driving the market's growth.
Based on source, boron fertilizers market is segmented into boric acid, borax, and others. The borax segment dominated the market in 2020 and is expected to maintain its dominance during the forecast period. Borax is a highly soluble boron source. It is readily absorbed by plants and has a major impact on all growth parameters. Since borax is extracted from boron, adding it to the soil helps plants grow in terms of health, development, and reproduction.
By application, the global boron fertilizers market is segmented into oilseeds and pulses, fruits and vegetables, cereals and grains, and others. The fruits and vegetables segment held the largest share in the market in 2020. Boron increases flower production and retention, pollen tube elongation and germination, and seed and fruit development. With the growing population across the world, the demand for fruits and vegetables is also increasing. The easy availability of products and developments in the agricultural market bolster the demand for the boron fertilizers, which drives the market growth for the fruits and vegetables segment.
