Presentation No. 8 on Fertiliser Sector


Status

Status

  • India is the second largest consumer and third largest producer of fertiliser in the world.

  • India consumed 54 million tonnes and produced 38 million tonnes fertiliser products in 2012-13.

  • India has large manufacturing base with 33 urea plants, 19 NP/NPK plants and about 90 SSP plants.

Fertiliser Supplies – Import Dependence

India’s dependence on imports (Per cent)


Status1

Status

  • Capacity and efficiency of Indian urea and NP/NPK plants is of world scale.

  • India does not have process technology but has indigenous fabrication & Engineering capabilities.

  • India has some strength in production and R&D of catalysts.

Regulatory environment

Regulatory Environment

  • Indian fertiliser industry continues to operate in highly regulated environment.

  • MRP and movement of fertilisers are controlled.

  • Stifling controls and micromanagement of industry have rendered the sector unattractive for investment.


Impact of regulatory environment

Impact of Regulatory Environment

  • The industry is not able to generate surplus funds for capital investment/ modernization/innovation.

  • Payment of Industry dues are abnormally delayed.

  • Imbalanced use of plant nutrients.


Ensuring fertiliser security

Ensuring Fertiliser Security

  • India can achieve self sufficiency in production of nitrogenous fertiliser provided priority in allocation of domestic gas is restored.

  • India needs an investment fund to acquire resources abroad for phosphatic & potassic fertilisers.

WayForward

  • Industry should be freed from the task of reaching the fertiliser subsidy to 130 million farmers.

  • Industry be allowed to operate in free and competitive environment.

  • R&D in the area of catalysts for ammonia and sulphuric acid plants needs to be strengthened.

  • Mechanism and funding of R&D programme be strengthened.
