Australia Market on Ammonia Industry 2016, Industry and Market Studies Research Report

MRRSE has added a new research report on the "Australia Market Study on Ammonia: Increasing Consumption in Nitric Acid Production to Drive Growth by 2024" to its collection.


Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/11/2017 -- Ammonia, a compound of nitrogen and hydrogen, is a colourless gas with a characteristically pungent smell. It is used in manufacture of major chemicals. Ammonia is a major source of nitrogen nutrient and is mainly used as fertilizer as well as for manufacture of other fertilizers such as urea, ammonium sulphate, and ammonium phosphates. Ammonia is either directly (as hydroxide) or indirectly used in commercial cleaning. It is also used as a critical feedstock for the manufacture of nitric acid, an important precursor for products such as calcium nitrate, ammonium nitrate, nitrobenzene, toluene, adipic acid, and other speciality organic compounds.

In terms of volume, the Australia ammonia market was pegged at 1,324.9 KT in 2015. The market is anticipated to expand at a CAGR of 6.3% in terms of value over the forecast period (2016–2024).

Increasing demand for industrial chemicals and explosives is one of the major factors boosting growth of the Australia ammonia market. Increasing ammonium nitrate production by explosives manufacturers is driving demand for nitric acid and anhydrous ammonia, both resulting in increasing demand for ammonia. Demand for nitrogen-rich fertilizers such as DAP, MAP, and urea is also fueling demand for ammonia. Also, increasing environmental emissions concern regarding hydrofluorocarbon is driving volume sales of ammonia for commercial refrigeration application. However, fluctuating natural gas prices and increasing fertilizer imports are expected to hamper growth of the Australia ammonia market to a certain extent.

Trends in the Australia ammonia market include expansion of ammonium nitrates production capacities by various manufacturers and increasing adoption of ammonia-based refrigeration systems.
