Drivers & Restraints

Rising Demand in Agrochemical Industry to Fuel Market Growth

The growing demand for acidic fertilizers is expected to drive the ammonium sulfate market growth. Since ammonium is an acidic fertilizer for alkaline soil. Moreover, the increasing demand for food crops for a dramatically rising population is likely to drive the agrochemical industry. For instance, according to a report by the Food & Agriculture Organization (FAO), the demand and supply for ammonium fertilizer in the year 2020 was nearly 160,492 million tons. Another report by FAO suggests that the shrinking of cultivable land is also driving the need for fertilizers since in 2017, the agricultural land was only 37%, which declined to 36.9% in 2018.

Regional Insights

Asia Pacific to Dominate Backed by Increasing Demand for Food Crops

Asia Pacific is expected to remain at the forefront and hold the highest position in the global market during the forecast period owing to the increasing demand for food crops in populated countries such as China, India, Bangladesh, Indonesia, Pakistan, and Japan. Furthermore, the presence of various manufacturers in the region is likely to drive the regional market.  The region’s market stood at USD 0.36 billion in 2020.

North America is expected to showcase significant ammonium sulfate market share during the forecast period owing to the adoption of modern farming techniques and increased use of pH-balancing fertilizers. 

Competitive Landscape

Key Players to Focus on Acquisitions to Strengthen the Market Growth

The market is consolidated by major companies striving to maintain their position by focusing on new launches and acquisitions. For instance, in October 2018, Highsun Group acquired caprolactam and manufacturer Fibrant from DSM and CVC capital. However, Fibrant was already under ChemicaInvest since 2015. It was a joint venture of investment fund CVC Capital Partners (65% stake) and Dutch chemicals major DSM (35%). The agreement includes plants in Geleen, The Netherlands, and Nanjing, China. Such strategic moves by key players will strengthen the market prospects in upcoming years.
