Report Summary

Controlled-release technologies provide a vast array of benefits across many applications. BCC Research has divided this market into six categories—agriculture, food additives, consumer products, infrastructure, industrial and energy—to capture the growth trends of this technology.

BCC Research identifies the use of controlled release across all categories as niche, as it comes at a premium price and because controlled release of a substance is used only during selected applications. It is, however, predicted to show growth. High-income areas will continue to dominate, with the U.S. being the leading consumer, but for growth rates, middle-income areas will show the highest drive, mainly by China.

Growth is projected to be lower than previous growth rates. This is mainly due to market uptake based on regulations, consumer preferences and substitutes. In the highest-volume areas (high income), the market will be mature, with new applications using controlled release reaching maximum levels. Consumer preferences in such areas as food additives have begun to move away from unneeded chemicals and toward natural products, which will affect both the product and the packaging across all
income segments. In the European Union (E.U.), which is already a niche market for agricultural use, regulation targeting polymer materials used in agriculture could put a halt to future market use until a bio-based and/or fully degradable material becomes ready and economical to use.

Request for Report Discount:

As middle-income countries begin to mature and refine their technologies, their consumers will demand more premium products and sophisticated marketing driving everything from consumer goods to industrial products. Agriculture will also see growth in middle-income areas, as farming intensity and nitrogen runoff take a toll on the environment, thus driving the need for selective release. More consumer discretionary spending will drive leisure gardening to leisure activities, including golf, increasing the demand for premium fertilizers used on the turf. Business and residential landscaping will also drive growth as consumers and companies improve the esthetics of their surroundings.

In mature markets and increasingly in middle-income markets, controlled release for use in remediation and water treatment will drive a niche business as environmental regulations and enforcement become more frequent.

The markets vary by their demands, but the use of controlled-release technology allows for product producers to alter and customize their offerings for specific applications. BCC Research predicts a growth market as populations, consumer income and industrial output rise.
