The urea-ammonium nitrate (UAN) segment is projected to be the largest segment in the specialty fertilizers market during the forecast period.
UAN is considered to be an excellent irrigation fertilizer for cereal production and irrigated plant cultivation. It is basically used before plowing the field, which helps in enhancing its degradation. Solutions of urea ammonium nitrate (UAN) are widely used as a source of nitrogen for plant nutrition. In combination with plant protective agents, it is mixed in the irrigation water for irrigated plant cultivation. Fluid fertilizers are blended together to meet the specific needs of a crop.

The fertigation segment is estimated to account for the largest market share, in terms of value, in 2020.
Fertigation is used in the fields of row crops, horticultural crops, fruit crops, vegetable crops, and ornamental & flowering crops. The fertigation method allows the homogenous application of liquid specialty fertilizers in an adequate amount to the wetted zone in the root development, where most of the active roots are concentrated, which helps in enhancing the efficiency of specialty fertilizers. This technique allows specialty fertilizers to be distributed evenly in irrigation. The application of specialty fertilizers through fertigation increases its efficiency by 10%–15%, as compared to conventional fertilization.
The coated & encapsulated segment is projected to witness the fastest growth, in terms of value, in the specialty fertilizers market, on the basis of technology, from 2016 to 2025.
Coated & encapsulated specialty fertilizers are conventional soluble fertilizer materials with increasingly available nutrients, which after granulation, prilling, or crystallization, are given a protective (water-insoluble) coating to control the water penetration, thereby affecting the rate of dissolution and the nutrient release. To further reduce the total fertilizer costs, coated & encapsulated fertilizers are increasingly used with the blend of conventional fertilizers in different ratios. These fertilizers offer greater flexibility in determining the nutrient release pattern.
