Market Summary

The Global Phosphate Rocks Market is projected to register a CAGR of over 3% during the review period. The growth of the global phosphate rocks market is primarily driven by the its use in phosphorous production, which is further used as a chemical feedstock. The limited availability of cultivable land across the globe due to the industrialization and urbanization has resulted in an increased demand for fertilizers for crop production. With the growing population, the agricultural production has increased, which is projected to drive the growth of the global phosphate rocks market during the assessment period. However, the increasing adoption of environmentally friendly products due to stringent regulations associated with environment protection by the US Environmental Protection Agency and EU legislation is expected to hamper the market growth.
