Argus Sub-Saharan Africa Fertilizers

An Argus Strategy Report

The population of sub-Saharan Africa in the next 20 years is expected to outstrip both China and India. Current agricultural output in this region however, is not yet in a position to meet this growing demand. Poor soil quality and a lack of infrastructure have prevented agricultural development, blocking farmers from applying sufficient nutrients and maintaining adequate soil fertility.

Argus’s new fertilizer report explores sub-Saharan Africa’s own resources, examines the potential to develop new projects and provides an in-depth country-by-country outlook. This unique study also offers a detailed analysis of harnessing natural gas for new nitrogen capacity in the next 5-10 years.

This report illuminates the dynamic and fast growing markets of sub-Saharan Africa, enabling readers to:

  • Develop marketing strategies to succeed in the fertilizer markets of sub-Saharan Africa
  • Assess market size and value based latest trade statistics
  • Understand the cost chain from port to farmer
  • Establish main players and potential partners
  • Understand the market environment and structure, including subsidy systems and government programmes
  • Plan logistical supply routes to target markets


  • Fertilizer manufacturers
  • Fertilizer traders
  • Equipment manufacturers
  • Banks and investment funds
  • Analysts and researchers
