The Fertiliser and Nitrogen Compounds Industry


In 2017 the estimated value of purchases in the fertiliser industry was R13.8bn, representing 9.5% of total purchases in the agricultural sector, according to Statistics South Africa. South Africa remains a relatively small player internationally but it has one of the largest and most sophisticated fertiliser markets on the African continent. The fertiliser industry will be affected by the delay in the 2018/19 planting season due to drought, where it has been estimated that maize plantings reduced by 20%.


Competition


The industry is highly concentrated, with Omnia and Kynoch being the largest companies in the sector. Sasol and Foskor also play a large role as they are significant providers of inputs to the manufacture of fertilisers. A number of rulings by competition authorities have had a significant effect on the sector. It may also be affected by the draft Fertiliser Bill provides for regulation concerning raw material and licensing of facilities, and land expropriation. On the other hand, it may benefit from European Union regulations to reduce the level of cadmium in fertilisers as South African fertilisers have low cadmium levels.


Report Coverage


This report focuses on the manufacture, wholesale and retail of fertilisers and nitrogen compounds in South Africa and the factors influencing the sector’s success including competition and regulatory issues.
