Ammonia Market

Ammonia is a colorless gas with a distinct odor also known as a building-block chemical and a key component in the manufacture of many products people use every day. It is found naturally in the environment through air, soil, and water, and plants and animals, including humans. Moreover, ammonia is a primary building block for ammonium nitrate fertilizer, which discharges nitrogen, a necessary nutrient for growing plants, including farm crops and lawns. Most ammonia produced across the world is used in fertilizer to maintain food production. The composition of food crops normally depletes soil nutrient supplies. Most farmers rely on ammonia-based fertilizers to keep the soil productive and maintain healthy crops. With the growing demand for food production and the increasing dependence on fertilizers, the global ammonia market is anticipated to grow during the forecast period.

Ammonia is broadly popular as a refrigerant gas and widely used in air-conditioning equipment. The properties of ammonia help absorb ample amounts of heat from its surroundings. In addition, the use of ammonia to purify water supplies is generating more demand for ammonia. Ammonia plays an important role as a stabilizer, neutralizer, and a source of nitrogen in the waste and wastewater treatment, cold storage, rubber, pulp, paper, and food & beverage industries. Moreover, ammonia is being used as a building block in various manufacturing products including plastics, explosives, textiles, pesticides, and colors. Ammonium byproducts such as ammonium hydroxide are an essential ingredient in many household cleaning products, including tubs, sinks, toilets, countertops, and tiles. The various uses of ammonia for almost every end user is expecting a heavy surge in the demand for the ammonia market during the projected period.

Halt of End-Use Industries Hinders Demand for Ammonia

The global demand for ammonia is expected to remain inactive during the pandemic years and is predicted to receive increasing growth in the post-COVID-19 era. In addition to the flattening population growth, COVID-19 has led to a heavy drop in global economic activities. Notwithstanding the austerity of the shock of the pandemic, top ammonia producers are expected to proceed with their upcoming ammonia projects. Major leading ammonia producing nations are anticipated to contribute more than 45 million tons per annum, with India and Iran leading the market. The global ammonia projects that are at their initial stages of growth are facing delays, due to increased assurance regarding phasing and completion timelines, but it relies largely on the span and austerity of the COVID-19 outbreak.

The COVID-19 pandemic is witnessing mixed reactions from major ammonia manufacturers, with only a few businesses declaring cuts in their capital expenditure for the current year as a critical and proactive measure. In order to maintain long-term competitiveness and growth, businesses aim to dynamically optimize production and prepare their finances. However, some businesses may postpone the investment to after the COVID-19 is over. Manufacturers continue to estimate their capital structure to recognize further cost-effective financing opportunities. Moreover, as many global economies had to follow strict lockdown measures due to the growing spread of the coronavirus, halt of various end-use industries of ammonia, workforce, and limited supply chain had a huge impact on the ammonia market. Nevertheless, rapid vaccination drives and developing healthcare innovations are likely to restore the market growth shortly.

Constant Demand for Ammonia in Nitrogen Fertilizers in Most Nations

Ammonia is a significant part of the global nitrogen industry. More than 80% of the global ammonia is used for nitrogen fertilizers. Nitrogen fertilizers are the most extensively used fertilizers in the world, estimating close to 60% of all composts. Most of the global ammonia is produced from natural gas. However, in China, much of the ammonia is produced from the coal gasification. Ammonia is treated into downstream fertilizer produce before being utilized in the soil. These products include urea, ammonium nitrates, ammonium sulfate, ammonium phosphates, and nitrogen solutions. The use of ammonia in industrial applications is growing faster than its use in fertilizers, and is expected to further grow in the near future. Ammonia is used to create ammonium nitrates that are used to make explosives. It is also used in the manufacturing of acrylonitrile for acrylic fibers and plastics, hexamethylenediamine for nylon 66, caprolactam for nylon 6, isocyanates for polyurethanes and hydrazine, and various amines and nitriles. All these factors are anticipating growth of the ammonia market during the forecast period.

The world has been undergoing a weaker nutrient requirement in recent years, due to poor economic outlooks, lower crop, and food prices, rising competition, and varying energy prices. A decrease in fertilizer rates has had a notable impact on fertilizer producers’ earning potential. Although there have been capacity cutbacks, merger decisions, and cost-cutting actions, fertilizer production, and import levels have continued to be strong. The demand for ammonia fell drastically in 2020, due to the ongoing pandemic, mostly owing to logistics and financial issues. However, the market is projected to overcome current restraints as soon as things start to work normally. As future capacity additions will continue to outpace consumption, the global ammonia market is expected to grow during the projected period.
