Ammonia Market Exponentially Increasing with the Leading Key Players Insights


Seattle, WA -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/14/2019 -- Global Ammonia Market– Insights

Ammonia (NH3) is a colorless inorganic compound of nitrogen and hydrogen with formula NH3. It is highly soluble in water and has a pungent odor. Ammonia is typically irritating to skin, eyes, throat, nose, and lungs. However, it is important for many biological processes and serves as a precursor for amino acid and nucleotide synthesis. Ammonia is produced naturally through the breakdown of organic waste matter in the environment. It finds major applications in fertilizer, chemical, pharmaceutical, pulp and paper, mining, fiber, and plastics industries. The feedstock used for ammonia production are natural gas and fuel oil.

Increasing demand for fertilizers in the agriculture sector is expected to drive growth of the global ammonia market. For instance, according to the International Fertilizer Industry Association (IFA), ammonium production in North America and South Asia accounted for 70% of overall capacity growth in forecast period (2017-2021).

However, ammonia is irritating and corrosive. Thus, exposure to high concentrations of ammonia in air causes burning of nose, throat, and respiratory tract, which is expected to restrain growth of the global ammonia market growth in the near future.

The global ammonia market was valued at US$ 48.99 billion in 2017 and is expected to register a CAGR of 5.4% in terms of revenue during the forecast period (2018–2025). This is owing to rising ammonia production capacity across the globe. According to the International Fertilizer Industry Association (IFA), global ammonia capacity is projected to expand by 8% over 2016, to reach 234 Mt NH3 in 2021. Increase in capacity is expected in EECA, North America, and Africa by 2021.

Market Outlook

On the basis of application, fertilizer segment held the dominant position in the global ammonia market share in 2017, accounting for 75% market share and it is expected to maintain its dominance during the forecast period. According to the Government of India (GOI), globally, 80% of all ammonia manufactured is used in the production of nitrogenous fertilizers, and urea is the main nitrogenous fertilizer manufactured in India. When applied to soil, it helps in providing increased yields of crops such as corn and wheat. Consuming over 1% of all man-made power, the production of ammonia is a significant component of the world energy budget.

Regional Insights

Among regions, Asia Pacific is expected to account for significant market share in the global ammonia market in terms of revenue over the forecast period. Ammonia is used in cleansing agents and as food additives. Ammonia is used as leavening agents in baked goods and as an acidity controller in cheese and chocolate. According to Coherent Market Insights' analysis, the global chocolate market was valued at US$ 99.60 billion in 2016 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.6% over the forecast period, which in turn will drive growth of global ammonia market.

Furthermore, Europe held significant market share in the global ammonia market in 2017 and is expected to maintain its dominance over the forecast period. This is owing to benefits of the ammonia such as acid regulators, stabilizers. According to World Health Organization (WHO), the estimated daily ammonia intake through food and drinking water is 18 mg, by inhalation is less than 1 mg, and through cigarette smoking (20 cigarettes per day) is less than 1 mg. According to the same source, 4,000 mg of ammonia per day are produced endogenously in the human intestine.
