Ammonium Nitrate Market: Overview

Ammonium nitrate is a white crystalline solid chemical compound made of ions of ammonium and nitrate. It is highly water-soluble while also displaying properties of retaining water from the environment either through absorption or adsorption, however, the compound does not hydrate. Since ammonium nitrate is an extremely volatile substance, there are numerous guidelines and safety measures mentioned on the safety data sheets provided by the manufacturers and by different governments.

Pure ammonium nitrate is not inflammable but is a strong oxidizer and supports the combustion of organic & some inorganic material, however, storing it near combustible items should be avoided. Ammonium nitrate is stable at normal temperature pressure but a strong initiation charge may cause it to detonate and its storage near blasting agents or explosives is prohibited.

The global ammonium nitrate market is one of the highly observed markets because of the extremely disastrous application of the compound under improper care along with a few small and large-scale incidents in the past.

Covid-19 Impact:

The global market growth witnessed a minor glitch during Covid-19 because of the temporary closure of non-essential factories and industries along with disturbances in the supply chain of raw materials and end goods.

If some of the concerns related to the industry are not properly managed, the global market growth may get restricted in the long term because unsuitable use of the product has many disastrous implementations.

Ammonium Nitrate Market: Growth Drivers

Rising demand in agriculture, defense, and mining sectors to aid market growth

Ammonium nitrate is used extensively as a fertilizer with an NPK rating of 34-0-0. It is preferred over urea owing to its higher stability and lesser dispersion of nitrogen to the atmosphere making it more acceptable in the field of agriculture since crops consume nitrogen in the form of nitrate. The agriculture sector has been growing exponentially because of the rising population and subsequent food demand. Agriculture is one of the most essential as well as key driving sectors for many economies which is aided by the adoption of technology and extensive R&D in food cultivation. The differential rise in the agricultural products and the food sector is anticipated to propel the global ammonium nitrate market growth.

Ammonium nitrate is capable of creating explosive mixtures of different properties when combined with other products or fuels. Hence, the military and defense segments of many economies use the product for creating explosives. However, a key point to note is that the use in the military is for defense purposes only and the mixtures are created as per military-dictated guidelines and under extreme supervision. The global market is projected to grow in the coming years because of rising demand in mining and construction as well.

Ammonium Nitrate Market: Restraints

Safety issues related to the use of ammonium nitrate to restrain the market growth

Since ammonium nitrate is used for creating explosives, the product has already been used in terrorist activities multiple times raising safety-related concerns. Because of the rising misuse of ammonium nitrate in anti-national activities, many governments have established stringent rules for the manufacturing of the chemical compound. These rules apply to all sectors where ammonium nitrate is used thus making it difficult for regular manufacturers as well to create the compound easily or hassle-free.

The global ammonium nitrate market growth may also be restricted because of other harmful effects of the compound like health issues as prolonged exposure to nitrate can lead to eye irritation and other uncomfortable physical reactions.

Ammonium Nitrate Market: Opportunities

Growing demand in the mining and construction industry to provide ample market growth opportunities

With the expanding population, there is a rise in the demand for necessities which in turn has propelled the growth of consumer products. When coupled with the higher demands for products like vehicles, buildings, or other such products, leads to the increased need for coal which acts as a first source of energy generator to manufacture these products. The subsequent rise in mining activities is expected to provide for multiple growth opportunities in the global market, especially in developing nations that have recently expanded the consumer product database owing to urbanization and high income amongst the general population.

The growth in construction of newer sites as well as restoration of older buildings may also provide expansion opportunities in the global market.

Ammonium Nitrate Market: Challenges

Presence of substitutes along with the prevention of hazardous incidents to pose challenges to market expansion

Owing to the misuse of ammonium nitrate in unacceptable and unpleasant activities, there are ongoing research activities conducted worldwide for the substitute of ammonium nitrate, for example, a mixture of urea and ammonium sulfate which is expected to deliver the same results as ammonium nitrate minus the harmful properties. This poses a major challenge in the global market growth along with detailed protocols to be followed while handling ammonium nitrate to prevent any hazardous event. Many economies are now phasing out the use of the chemical compound because of many fatal explosions that have occurred in the past.

Ammonium Nitrate Market: Segmentation

The global ammonium market is segmented based on application, end-user, and region.

Based on application, the global market is segmented as explosives, fertilizers, and others. The segment is expected to be dominated by its application in manufacturing fertilizers owing to the abundant presence of nitrate in the chemical compound which is used extensively by crops during their growth phase.

Based on end-user, the global market segments are mining, defense, agriculture, and others where the agricultural sector is expected to dominate the segment. In 2020, because of the high use of ammonium nitrate in agriculture, it alone accounted for 74% of the global market share and is anticipated to showcase the same effect in the coming years.

Recent Developments:

  • In December 2021, Deepak Fertilisers and Petrochemicals Corporation Limited, a leading giant of agricultural chemicals, crop nutrients, and fertilizers in India, announced the launch of a Rs 2200 Cr technical ammonium nitrate plant in Odisha state. The installation of the plant will make the corporation a key supplier of ammonium nitrate in the entire eastern region of India.
  • In August 2020, after the fatal explosion of ammonium nitrate containers at Beirut port, the country’s government changed rules and regulations related to the storage of the chemical compound by introducing fire-fighting provisions along with better handling and storage procedures to be followed.
