Global Nitrogenous Fertilizer Industry to 2027 – COVID-19 Impact and Analysis –

DUBLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The "Nitrogenous Fertilizer Market Forecast to 2027 – COVID-19 Impact and Global Analysis by Type, Form, Crop Type, Mode of Application, and Geography" report has been added to's offering.

The global nitrogenous fertilizer market was valued at US$ 72, 537.57 million in 2018, and it is expected to grow at a CAGR of 3.7% from 2019 to 2027, to reach US$ 100, 304.42 million by 2027.

Nitrogen fertilizer is one of the most regular fertilizer categories produced with different chemical combinations of nitrogen; the fertilizers are commonly available in three forms-ammonia, nitrate, and urea. Once applied to the fields the fertilizers are absorbed by plants are converted into various other forms through chemical reactions. Their application helps confer better texture and color to plants, thus improving agricultural productivity. The Haber Bosch process is considered to be the most preferred technique for the production of nitrogenous fertilizers. Natural gas is one of the significant raw materials used in the Haber Bosch process, along with other materials such as animal manure and compost. The increase in population is capitalizing the food security needs, which emphasizes the need to use such fertilizers to supply essential nutrients in soil to promote the soil quality, ultimately leading to higher yields.

The nitrogenous fertilizer market, based on type, is segmented into urea, ammonium nitrate, ammonium sulfate, ammonia, calcium ammonium nitrate, and others. The urea segment accounted for the largest share of the global market in 2018, whereas the market for ammonium sulfate is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Urea is freely soluble in water and is among the cheapest nitrogenous fertilizers, considering the per-unit cost of nutrients. It is offered in solid, white, granular, and slightly hygroscopic form. It is also applied in solution form as a spray. Most of the crops react effectively to the urea application. Upon application to the soil, urea undergoes decomposition in the presence of urease enzyme synthesized by soil microorganisms. The conversion of urea into nitrate, as a result of a complete decomposition, takes place in about one week's time. Urea is relatively resistant to leaching.

The Nitrogenous fertilizer market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, South America, and the Middle East and Africa. Asia Pacific held the largest share of the market in 2018, followed by North America. The abundant availability of raw materials required for the production of nitrogenous fertilizers, coupled with rise in the commercial farming activities, is expected to boost the growth of the market in the coming years. The increasing investment in sustainable form of products and growing focus toward expansion of nitrogenous fertilizers are other factors that are expected to drive the growth of the market during the forecast period.
