Global Metal Chelates Market
Market Outline: Metal Chelates Market
Metal chelates are the chemical substances, which contain chelating agents with a metal ion. Metal chelates are used as soil additives to provide the micronutrients that are necessary for plant growth. Organic substances such as hydroxamate siderophores are natural chelating agents present in the soil field. However, these natural chelates are insufficient to improve the crop yield. Synthetic chelating agents such as EDTA are most commonly used due to their versatile nature and broad scope of use.
Market Dynamics: Metal Chelates Market
Deterioration of the pH level and soil quality, increase in the demand for better crop yield, change in organic farming practices, increase in awareness about the nutritional requirement for the plant growth, and rise in the usage of metal chelates as micronutrient fertilizers for plants are anticipated to propel the metal markets over the forecast period. However, adverse effects associated with overuse of chelating agents, effect of non-biodegradable metal chelates, and lack awareness about metal chelates in underdeveloped regions are the factors hamper the growth of metal chelates market. Furthermore, creating the awareness about the metal chelates in farmers, and introduction of newer products with minimal side effects expected to present better growth opportunities for market players in the metal chelates market. Moreover, use of chelated nutrients in animal feed is the current trend that drives growth of the market.
