Competitive vendor landscape

The global fertilizer spreader market is characterized by the presence of a limited number of established players. The vendors in the market are investing in R&D to provide improved quality and modified fertilizer spreaders. For instance, Rauch spent about USD 5.5 million on R&D in 2015. The rising demand for premium quality fertilizer spreaders, which help in accurate application and thereby minimize the impact on the environment, is encouraging market vendors to introduce new technologies.

Mantri Charan Kumar, one of the lead analyst at Technavio for research on retail goods and services, says, “The market is characterized by intense competition, and vendors are trying to offer high quality fertilizer spreaders at competitive prices. Strategic alliances like mergers and acquisitions, and the influx of new products owing to technological innovations, are estimated to further intensify the competition over the next five years. The success of vendors in the market is heavily linked to farm income and regulations related to the use of fertilizers.”
