The Global Ammonia Market Has Reached Around 167 Million Tonnes in 2021 and is Expected to Grow at a CAGR of 7.22% During the Forecast Period Until 2030

The global Ammonia market has reached around 167 million tonnes in 2021 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 7.22% during the forecast period until 2030.

Ammonia is a colorless gas with a characteristic smell. On the industrial level, Ammonia is mainly obtained from Haber Process. In this process, atmospheric nitrogen is combined with gaseous hydrogen under high pressure and temperature using a catalyst. Also, Ammonia can be generated using coal. Ammonia is used as a raw material for manufacturing nitrogen fertilizer. Furthermore, this chemical is utilized for applications like air conditioner refrigeration, plastics, detergents, explosives, pesticides, etc.

The global Ammonia market is primarily driven by its application in the Agriculture & Fertilizers sector. in 2021, this industry consumed greater than 60% of the global Ammonia market. Regarding crop yield and agricultural productivity, the fertilizer sector is crucial. The usage of nitrogenous fertilizers is primarily in the agriculture sector. Fertilizer sales are projected to increase as a result of the expanding world population and rising food consumption. The global Ammonia market is expected to reach around 310 million tonnes by 2030. Furthermore, the application of Ammonia in the Pharmaceutical sector as a respiratory stimulant, as neutralizing agent, and for manufacturing drugs due to its anti-bacterial nature further propels the demand for Ammonia. Numerous household cleaning and disinfection products contain the active component ammonium hydroxide, a derivative of Ammonia. It is used to clean various surfaces, such as countertops, basins, bathtubs, floors, and others, which further contributes to the market expansion of global Ammonia.

The region of Asia Pacific demands the most significant volume of Ammonia on the global level. In 2021, this region accounted for the consumption of more than 40% of Ammonia on a global level. Additionally, it is anticipated that Ammonia's demand in this will increase at a higher CAGR over the course of the projection period due to factors such as population growth, resulting in rising demand for crop production, and the agriculture sector's growing reliance on fertilizers for healthy production of crops. Europe is also a prominent consumer of Ammonia, the demand primarily driven by energy production purposes. Currently, increasing energy efficiency and having the lowest CO2 emissions are being invested in by businesses. Based on production, the Asia Pacific region dominates the ammonia market, accounting for around 30% of global capacity in 2021.

Based on the end-user industry, the Ammonia market is segmented into sectors like Agriculture & Fertilizers, Textiles, Pharmaceutical, Explosives, Refrigeration, and Others. However, the Agriculture and Fertilizers Industry is the biggest end-user market of Ammonia. Furthermore, other industries like Textiles & Pharmaceutical are multiplying in the forecast period.

Significant companies for Global Ammonia are CF Industries, Nutrien, Jinmei Group, Yihua Group, Qatar Fertilizer Co (QAFCO), PetroChina Group, TogliattiAzot, EuroChem Group, Acro Group, Yangmei Group, Parsian Oil and Gas Development Group Co., and Indian Farmers Fertiliser Co-operative Limited (IFFCO).
