The silicon fertilizer market was valued at US$ 1,329.85 million in 2019 and is projected to reach US$1,768.81 million by 2027; it is expected to grow at a CAGR of 3.7% from 2020 to 2027.

Silicon is the second most abundant element in the earth's crust after oxygen. Naturally, silicon occurs as silicates and oxides and is exploited as a fertilizer offering resistance to several plant diseases. Silicon fertilizer plays a vital role in plant growth, mechanical strength, mineral nutrition, and resistance to fungal diseases. It also helps develop plant roots, decrease abiotic stress, and prevent stalk lodging, which promotes upright growth of the field and horticultural crops.The global silicon fertilizer market in North America is expected to grow at the highest CAGR of 4.5% during 2020–2027.

The COVID-19 pandemic was first reportedin Wuhan, China,in December 2019.As of October 2020, the US, Russia, India, China, Italy, France, and Germany are amongthe worst-affected countries in terms of the positive cases and reported deaths. According to the WHO figures updated in October 2020, ~44.5 Mn confirmed cases and ~1.17 Mn deaths have been reported globally.The outbreak has affected economies and industries due to lockdowns, travel bans, and business shutdowns. Food &beveragesis one the world’smajor industries suffering serious disruptions in the form of supply chain breaks, technology events cancellations, and office shutdowns.Although China is the global manufacturing hub and the largest raw material supplier for various industriesin the world,it is also one of the worst


hit countries by the COVID-19 pandemic. The lockdown of various plants and factories in China is adversely affecting the global supply chains, and manufacturing and sales of variousfood &beverage products. The overall market collapse due to this outbreakis also restraining thegrowth of thesiliconfertilizer market due to shutdown of factories, obstacle in supply chains, and downturn in world economy.

Market Insights

Various Benefits Offered by Silicon Fertilizersto Drive Market Growth

Silicon fertilizers help resist insects, diseases, and unfavorable climatic conditions.Moreover, they enhance chemical and physical properties of soil as well as maintain nutrients in plants. Silicon helps prevent or reduce attacks of several insects including Pyrilla, Wooly Aphids, and Stem borer. Silicon also reduces infection of diseases, such as Ring spot, Rust, and Leaf freckling. Use of silicon aids in strengthening cell walls, thereby making leaves hard and stiff. Sucking insects find it difficult to penetrate their trunk in the leaf and their mandibles can get injured. Thus, silicon reduces attacks of many insects. Also, the leaf's hard surface does not allow easy germination of spores of many diseases and prevents the diseases mentioned above.

Type Insights

Based on type, thesilicon fertilizer market isfurtherbifurcatedinto synthetic and natural.The synthetic segment accounted for alargershare of the market in 2019.Synthetic silicon fertilizers are artificial fertilizers and contain chemicals and inorganic substances.
