The India Concentrated Nitric Acid market stood at approximately 500 thousand tonnes in FY2023 and is anticipated to grow at a healthy CAGR of 6% in the forecast period by FY2030.

Concentrated Nitric Acid (CAN) is a strong acid with the chemical formula HNO3. It is a strong oxidizing agent and is not compatible with strong bases, carbides, hydrogen sulphide, finely divided metals, and other combustible organics. Ammonia and nitric acid are mixed to produce ammonium nitrate. Ammonium nitrate is mostly used in industry to make fertilizers Nitric acid is also used to produce nitroaromatics such as Nitro Benzene and Nitro Toluene.

Owing to the growing consumption of Concentrated Nitric Acid as feedstock to produce ammonium nitrate is majorly driving the market. The use of ammonium nitrate by the fertilizer industry is the main application. The demand for high-quality crops is rising quickly, which has resulted in an increase in fertilizer usage in recent years. The crops include soybean, barley, and maize. The employment of concentrated nitric acid as a chemical intermediate to produce chemicals like Calcium Ammonium Nitrate, Nitrobenzene, Adipic Acid, and Toluene di-isocyanate (TDI), which have applications in various industries such as Fertilizers, Pharmaceuticals, Defence & Explosive, Dyes, Rubber, Pesticides, and others is anticipated to boost the CAN demand across India. All these factors are anticipated to positively augment the Concentrated Nitric Acid market in the forecast period and reach nearly 750 thousand tonnes in FY2030.

Based on region, the India Concentrated Nitric Acid Market is segregated into North, South, East, and West. Among these, West India has been the key player and accounted for approximately 45% of the market In FY2023. Western states like Gujarat and Maharashtra are the major consumers of Concentrated Nitric Acid with the majority of chemical manufacturers located in these states along with the feasibility of shipping ports.

Based on end-use, the India Concentrated Nitric Acid market is segregated into Ammonium Nitrate and Calcium Ammonium Nitrate, Nitrobenzene, Adipic Acid, Toluene di-isocyanate (TDI), and Others. Although, the Ammonium Nitrate and Calcium Ammonium Nitrate industry holds the largest share of the Concentrated Nitric Acid market. In FY2023, this segment held about 31% of the market share and is anticipated to dominate the market even in the forecast period. Furthermore, the Nitrobenzene segment also holds a considerably strong demand for Concentrated Nitric Acid.

Domestic players in the India Concentrated Nitric Acid market are Deepak Fertilizers And Petrochemicals Corporation Limited, Rashtriya Chemicals and Fertilizers Limited, Gujarat Narmada Valley Fertilisers, National Fertilizers Limited, and Hindustan Fertilizer Corporation Ltd. Major players in the production of Global Nitric Acid are Yara International ASA, Grupa Azoty S.A, BASF SE, TKG Huchems, Azot(PJSC), Navoiyazot , OCI Nitrogen B.V, and Others.
