Supply chain disruptions have affected the NPK fertilizers market.

In some regions, lockdowns have been announced to control the spread of COVID-19, thus hampering the movement of vehicles, containers, and raw materials. Raw material price volatility is also a major challenge faced by the manufacturers of NPK fertilizers due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Shutdowns resulting in production losses have a substantially negative impact on the NPK fertilizers market.

Countries have entirely shut down various business and trade operations to control the spread of COVID-19. These shutdowns have a direct impact on the fertilizer value chain. Currently, fertilizer manufacturers are relying on emergency stocks of raw materials, which will soon be over if the current scenario continues to persist. The shipping industry has already been reporting slowdowns due to the lockdown and port closures, along with further logistical hurdles, which are projected to disrupt the supply chains in the coming months.
