REPORT SCOPE & OVERVIEW
The Ammonia Market size was USD 201.4 billion in 2022 and is expected to Reach USD 304.4 billion by 2030 and grow at a CAGR of 5.3 % over the forecast period of 2023-2030.
Ammonia is an inorganic compound. It contains hydrogen and nitrogen with the chemical formula NH3. Ammonia is a colourless gas with a pungent odor, a stable binary hydride, and the simplest pnictogen hydride. The majority of the world's ammonia production is based on the Haber-Bosch process, which involves synthesizing ammonia from nitrogen and hydrogen gases, primarily sourced from natural gas.
Ammonia (NH3) is an alkaline gas that is extremely reactive and soluble. Ammonia is a component in a nitrogen cycle produced in soil by bacterial activities. Ammonia is also naturally formed through the decomposition of organic matter, including animals, plants, and faeces. Ammonia is produced via the breakdown and volatilisation of urea.
Ammonia (NH3) is one of the most widely produced and distributed compounds in the world, and it is best known for its usage as a fertilizer in agriculture. It has recently attracted attention to its potential use as a high-quality energy carrier and carbon-free fuel in internal combustion engines (ICEs).
Ammonia is used to make fertilisers, polymers, and explosives. Pharmaceuticals, water treatment, chemical processing, leather, paper, and refrigeration are some of the other applications.
Rising consumption of ammonia in refrigerants boosts market growth.
Ammonia is mostly utilized as a nitrogen-based fertilizer. The production of crops and agricultural activities have a significant impact on the need for ammonia. The need for food is rising along with the world population, which raises the need for fertilizers like ammonia.
The push towards reducing green house gas emissions and addressing climate change.
Exposure to a concentrated amount of NH3 impacts human and hinder market growth.
The manufacture of ammonia requires a lot of energy and largely uses fossil fuels, including natural gas, which increases greenhouse gas emissions. Producers encountered difficulties in lowering their carbon footprint and implementing more sustainable production practices as environmental restrictions grew increasingly stringent.
Population rise, increasing need for food, and shrinking arable land are drivers of the demand for NH3
Ammonia demand in the agriculture industry has increased as a result of the growing need for food security and the expanding world population. The requirement for effective fertilizers is further increased by the shrinking amount of arable land, making ammonia-based products crucial for increasing agricultural yields. Ammonia also has uses in a number of industrial processes and has the potential to be a carbon-free fuel, opening up markets outside of agriculture. However, in order to maintain responsible growth in the ammonia industry, it is crucial to take sustainability and environmental effects into account.
Rising fertilizer use and increased agricultural output drive market expansion.
Growing demand for biofuels.
The high cost and restricted availability of low-carbon ammonia are the two key hurdles to the usage of ammonia fuel.
Ammonia as a low-carbon fuel confronts two significant market challenges: high production costs and restricted supply. Current low-carbon ammonia manufacturing methods are more expensive than previous methods, owing to the utilization of renewable energy sources. Furthermore, low-carbon ammonia infrastructure and supply chains are not as developed as conventional ammonia infrastructure and supply chains. To overcome these barriers, technological breakthroughs and supportive regulations must be implemented in order for ammonia to be widely adopted as a greener fuel option.
The growing demand for green ammonia is a significant constraint for conventional NH3.
Creating safer, higher-quality ammonia for usage around both people and animals.
IMPACT OF RUSSIAN UKRAINE WAR
Russia has significant phosphate and potash reserves, as well as one of the world's largest natural gas reserves, giving the country a large P, N, and K production base. While Russian supply is critical to the global fertiliser industry. The possible impact of the military conflict between Russia and Ukraine on each of the eight major fertilisers we track, using six methods to evaluate each commodity's sensitivity to sanctions. The first five indicators are intended to assess each industry's immediate exposure to Russian fertilizer sanctions. According to reports, Russia has accused Ukraine for a burst on a critical ammonia pipeline, saying it will have a "negative" influence on negotiations to renew a major grain export agreement in 2023. A pipeline carrying ammonia fertilizer from Russia to Ukraine, which could be critical to the survival of the Black Sea grain deal, has been damaged. A blast caused surplus ammonia availability in the market, combined with decreased demand, paving the way for a narrowing demand-supply gap and, as a result, price declines. In Russia, prices fell by 23.6% in the second quarter of June 2023.
IMPACT OF ONGOING RECESSION
In manufacturing, ammonia natural gas is the most common feedstock. The increase in natural gas prices in the middle of 2021, particularly in Europe, reduced the manufacture of ammonia, a vital component in nitrogen fertilizer production. Coal price hikes in China also resulted in electrical restrictions, prompting several fertilizer production factories to reduce output. As a result, China imposed a ban on fertiliser exports, notably phosphates, until June 2022, citing the need to assure domestic availability and food security as justification. The restriction of Chinese fertilizer exports considerably reduced world supply. Ammonia prices in every region increased throughout Q1 2022 due to high natural gas costs, skyrocketing inflation, and significant production cuts. Rising shipping container costs are likely to contribute to fertilizer shortages and price rises. This has mostly affected major application sectors such as agriculture and Refrigerants.
By Product Form
Household and industrial cleaning
The Asia Pacific region dominated the product market in terms of revenue. This is ascribed to a significant number of agrarian countries in the APAC region, including India, Thailand, Indonesia, Japan, and the Philippines. The region accounts for over 60% of global nitrogenous fertilizer usage.
Rapid urbanization and growing populations have added to the demand for food, further accelerating fertilizer demand to increase crop yield. China is the world's largest producer of ammonia, accounting for over 30% of global output, and also the world's greatest consumer of nitrogenous fertilizers, accounting for one-third of total global usage. India is a major ammonia producer, accounting for around 8% of global output. The majority of the country's product is directly turned into urea, which is then utilized as a fertiliser.
The European market accounts for a major portion of these markets. The Food and Agriculture Organisation says. Imports meet the majority of Europe's mineral fertiliser needs. Nitrogen-based fertilisers have long been Europe's largest traded commodity with the rest of the globe. Nitrate-based fertilisers are mostly imported into the region from Russia, Egypt, and Algeria. The majority of NPK chemicals are imported through Russia and Norway.
Due to agricultural growth, the United States held the largest part of the North American market. The increase in government initiatives for the use of modern agricultural technologies and infrastructure has contributed to this region's highest revenue.
In Latin America, the increasing awareness of the benefits of ammonia as a fertilizer and for household hygiene may increase demand for household cleaning products. A plentiful supply of natural gas, infrastructure upgrades, and increased demand for fertilizers have piqued the interest of numerous fertilizer investors.
The Middle East is one of the world's greatest manufacturers of nitrogen fertilizer. Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and Iran are the world's largest NH3 and urea manufacturers. Furthermore, the suppliers ship about 3 million tonnes of NH3 each year to South Korea, India, China, and Taiwan.

An accurate research report requires proper strategizing as well as implementation. There are multiple factors involved in the completion of good and accurate research report and selecting the best methodology to compete the research is the toughest part. Since the research reports we provide play a crucial role in any company’s decision-making process, therefore we at SNS Insider always believe that we should choose the best method which gives us results closer to reality. This allows us to reach at a stage wherein we can provide our clients best and accurate investment to output ratio.
Each report that we prepare takes a timeframe of 350-400 business hours for production. Starting from the selection of titles through a couple of in-depth brain storming session to the final QC process before uploading our titles on our website we dedicate around 350 working hours. The titles are selected based on their current market cap and the foreseen CAGR and growth.
The 5 steps process:
Step 1: Secondary Research:
Secondary Research or Desk Research is as the name suggests is a research process wherein, we collect data through the readily available information. In this process we use various paid and unpaid databases which our team has access to and gather data through the same. This includes examining of listed companies’ annual reports, Journals, SEC filling etc. Apart from this our team has access to various associations across the globe across different industries. Lastly, we have exchange relationships with various university as well as individual libraries.
Step 2: Primary Research
When we talk about primary research, it is a type of study in which the researchers collect relevant data samples directly, rather than relying on previously collected data. This type of research is focused on gaining content specific facts that can be sued to solve specific problems. Since the collected data is fresh and first hand therefore it makes the study more accurate and genuine.
We at SNS Insider have divided Primary Research into 2 parts.
Part 1 wherein we interview the KOLs of major players as well as the upcoming ones across various geographic regions. This allows us to have their view over the market scenario and acts as an important tool to come closer to the accurate market numbers. As many as 45 paid and unpaid primary interviews are taken from both the demand and supply side of the industry to make sure we land at an accurate judgement and analysis of the market.
This step involves the triangulation of data wherein our team analyses the interview transcripts, online survey responses and observation of on filed participants. The below mentioned chart should give a better understanding of the part 1 of the primary interview.
Part 2: In this part of primary research the data collected via secondary research and the part 1 of the primary research is validated with the interviews from individual consultants and subject matter experts.
Consultants are those set of people who have at least 12 years of experience and expertise within the industry whereas Subject Matter Experts are those with at least 15 years of experience behind their back within the same space. The data with the help of two main processes i.e., FGDs (Focused Group Discussions) and IDs (Individual Discussions). This gives us a 3rd party nonbiased primary view of the market scenario making it a more dependable one while collation of the data pointers.
Step 3: Data Bank Validation
Once all the information is collected via primary and secondary sources, we run that information for data validation. At our intelligence centre our research heads track a lot of information related to the market which includes the quarterly reports, the daily stock prices, and other relevant information. Our data bank server gets updated every fortnight and that is how the information which we collected using our primary and secondary information is revalidated in real time.
Step 4: QA/QC Process
After all the data collection and validation our team does a final level of quality check and quality assurance to get rid of any unwanted or undesired mistakes. This might include but not limited to getting rid of the any typos, duplication of numbers or missing of any important information. The people involved in this process include technical content writers, research heads and graphics people. Once this process is completed the title gets uploader on our platform for our clients to read it.
Step 5: Final QC/QA Process:
This is the last process and comes when the client has ordered the study. In this process a final QA/QC is done before the study is emailed to the client. Since we believe in giving our clients a good experience of our research studies, therefore, to make sure that we do not lack at our end in any way humanly possible we do a final round of quality check and then dispatch the study to the client.
