About Potash

Potash is one of the most basic of plant nutrients, along with nitrogen and phosphate. With no direct substitute, potash is widely used in the production of fertilizers. The majority of potash is extracted from ancient underground evaporites. Another source is the brine from landlocked water bodies such as the Dead Sea, which also accounts for a significant share. Potash is also used in the manufacture of plastics, pharmaceuticals, soaps, and fire extinguishers.

Macroeconomic and seasonal factors play an important role in determining global agricultural output and consumption of fertilizers. Any demand-supply fluctuation, coupled with the effect of taxation, can impact the global market. The market has traditionally been highly oligopolistic in nature with the presence of two cartels, one based at North America and the other in Europe. Developments of late have radically changed the structure of the market and the nature of competition.

Environmental regulations also play a key role in the growth of this market. Stringent environmental regulations have had an adverse effect on fertilizer manufacturers. In addition to shrinking margins, vendors also have to deal with indirect substitutes.

Technavios analysts forecast the global potash market to grow at a CAGR of 4.05%, by volume, over the period 2014-2019.
