The Fertiliser and Nitrogen Compounds Industry


South Africa’s fertiliser industry is experiencing a bumper year on the back of rising fertiliser prices and record maize production, which accounts for more than half of all fertiliser consumed in the country. However, there is concern over increasing imports and a decrease in local production. The sector is also faced with the threat of land expropriation and issues such as climate change which could increase the likelihood of drought in future years. Transport costs, electricity supply and exchange rate volatility also affect the sector.


Demand


Fertiliser demand is linked to the performance of the agriculture sector, which was one of the few sectors to experience growth in 2020, following the onset of the pandemic. An increase in a number of crop yields is positive for fertiliser providers. These include maize, wheat and soybeans. Sunflower seed and dry beans crops are however expected to decline.


Opportunities


Government plans to develop state-owned land and has announced that farmers would be able to apply to lease under-utilised state-owned land. To address environmental issues, the industry is focusing on the efficient use of fertiliser and green products, such as the production of green ammonia. The use of advanced efficiency products also presents an opportunity. There is significant potential for agriculture in Africa, and South African fertiliser companies are well positioned to sell into the Southern African region.
