Global Ammonia Market Size Analysis

In 2022, the ammonia market was estimated to be worth US$ 1,67,45.3 Mn. The historical CAGR being 3.4% from 2017-2021, by 2032, it is anticipated to have grown to US$ 1,79,574.4 Mn, marking a CAGR of more than 4.4%.

Ammonia has been used extensively in producing industrial explosives and fertilizers due to high demand. Certain macroeconomic factors, like the expanding population, the agricultural sector, and the mining industry, have significantly impacted the market.

Market Dynamic


The desire for crops to be produced in greater quality, quantity, and yield has led to substantial growth in the agricultural sector around the world. Particularly in emerging countries, the agriculture industry contributes significantly to a nation’s GDP. Growing agricultural production increases the demand for agrochemicals such as fertilizers (urea, MAP, DAP, etc.), indirectly increasing the demand for ammonia.

Ammonia consumption has increased due to the continually rising need for fertilizers, enhancing the market’s value throughout the projection period. Furthermore, farmers will profit from government fertilizer subsidies, raising the demand for ammonia regionally.


In some areas, the demand for ammonia exceeds domestic output for various uses. These areas consequently rely heavily on imports. North America must import ammonia to meet its demand, which forces the region to deal with multiple issues like price volatility and a lack of suppliers, limiting the ammonia market to some extent.

Additionally, soil quality has significantly declined worldwide due to the widespread use of chemical fertilizers and pesticides. The market for organic fertilizers is rising due to the growing desire for sustainable agricultural practices that reduce risk generation and carbon emissions.

COVID-19 Impact

The COVID-19 epidemic is anticipated to have immediate and long-term effects on several businesses, including agricultural, textile, mining, and other end-user industries. These effects could have an impact on the ammonia market. The disruption of the supply chain and the stoppage of fertilizer production had a significant effect on the agriculture sector. For instance, it has been anticipated that the COVID-19 pandemic will affect around 48.0% of substantial European farming firms.

Segment-Wise Analysis

What factors are responsible for Anhydrous Ammonia’s High Demand?

Due to the product’s high demand and wide availability in gaseous and liquid forms, the anhydrous ammonia segment’s share is anticipated to be on the higher side.

Furthermore, significant ammonia suppliers expect to strengthen their value chains through downstream manufacturing and by upholding long-term agreements with customers.

Throughout the forecast period, the market is anticipated to grow at a high CAGR of 5.4%. Additionally, over the forecast period, robust fertilizer demand, notably demand for nitrogen- and phosphate-based fertilizers, is anticipated to enhance anhydrous ammonia demand.

Which application is expected to generate higher revenue streams?

The urea category is regarded as a well-known one with significant market appeal. Between 2022 and 2032, the segment is predicted to generate an additional US$ 36.24 billion market opportunity.

It can be due to the increased usage of fertilizers throughout various regions to improve crop output quality and quantity. The need for agrochemicals, particularly fertilizers, is rising along with the agricultural sector’s growth globally due to increased urbanization and population growth, which is driving up ammonia consumption.

Region-Wise Analysis

Which country will be the highest ammonia producer during the projected period?

China is a significant producer and consumer of ammonia worldwide. Ammonia usage has been fueled by the nation’s many fertilizer productions, which is further supported by the presence of numerous industries there. China’s expected annual ammonia production is 49.0 million tonnes, compared to the anticipated 44.0 million tonnes of yearly ammonia demand.

Competition Analysis

Leading market players are concentrating on increasing their production capacity to meet the escalating demand from end customers. They are purchasing additional ammonia producers to broaden their customer base and strengthen their industry leader position. Instead of producing brown ammonia, some businesses have chosen to produce green ammonia and have changed their equipment to do so.
