Pune, India, Dec. 07, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The global ammonia market size is projected to reach USD 110.93 billion by 2028, exhibiting a CAGR of 6.4%during the forecast period. As per the report by Fortune Business Insights™, titled “Ammonia Market, 2021-2028”, the market’s value was estimated to be USD 67.01 billion in 2020 and is expected to touch USD 71.98 billion in 2021.

Exponential Growth in World Population to Favor the Market

The global population is growing at a prolific pace and agricultural practices, processes, and technologies will need to rapidly catch up to feed the ever-increasing number of people. Projections released by the Food and Agriculture (FAO) show that the world population is set to spike by nearly 33% over the next three decades, leading to the addition of roughly 2.3 billion people. To meet the nutrition requirements of the growing numbers, the FAO estimates that overall food production will have to increase by 70%, with production in developing nations needing to double from current levels.

NH3 will be a critical element in enabling governments to boost farm yields, as this compound is the most essential ingredient in making fertilizers. Since agricultural productivity is heavily dependent on fertilizers, the soaring demand for crops and raw materials in the coming years will escalate the adoption and employment of NH3.

Driving Factor

Promising Potential of Green Ammonia in Clean Energy to Brighten Market Prospects

Traditional forms of NH3 – gray, blue, and turquoise – are known to emit massive amounts of methane and carbon dioxide. For example, gray NH3, which is produced using the Haber-Bosch process, releases methane and CO2 in large amounts. Therefore, companies are building new capacities to manufacture green NH3, which is made with hydrogen that comes from water electrolysis powered by alternative energy.

In Saudi Arabia, for instance, US-based Air Products and Chemicals and NEOM, a company that is building a carbon-free city in Saudi Arabia, have embarked on a USD 5 billion project to construct and develop a green ammonia facility on the Red Sea coast that will be powered by wind energy. It is slated to be completed by 2025. Similarly, in May 2021, the UAE's Khalifa Industrial Zone Abu Dhabi or KIZADannounced plans to build a US$ 1 billion green NH3 plant to bolster the country’s position in clean energy. Similar projects are also being initiated in Norway, New Zealand, and Chile, opening up path-breaking growth avenues for this market.
