including urea, Di-ammonium phosphate (DAP), single super phosphate (SSP), calcium

ammonium nitrate (CAN), nitro phosphate (NP) and ammonium sulfate (AS). Total demand of
these fertilizers is estimated to grow at an average of 4% per annum in the medium term. The
shortfall of approximately 1.1mntpa is met through import on which GOP provides subsidies.
During FY08, the GOP allocated a sum of PKR 13.5bn for import of various fertilizers.

The graph above shows the demand trend of both major fertilizers, urea and DAP, which has
increased at a 4-year CAGR (CY02-06) of 4.6% and 7.7% respectively. Given the increase in
crop prices, low per acre usage of fertilizers, increasing awareness among the farming
community and vast cultivable land, we estimate demand growth of fertilizers to average over
4% per annum over the next 4 years.
