Global Market Size, Forecast, and Trend Highlights Over 2024-2036

Ammonium Bicarbonate Market size is estimated to surpass USD 36 Billion by the end of 2036, growing at a CAGR of 5% during the forecast period i.e., 2024-2036. In the year 2023, the industry size of ammonia bicarbonate was USD 1 Billion. The need for food is rising due to urbanization and growing populations, which is predicted to increase the demand for ammonium bicarbonate in the upcoming years. Ammonium bicarbonate is an extremely active baking ingredient that leaves no residues that alter flavor. In the approaching year, it is anticipated that this feature will also create a solid foundation for the worldwide market to grow strongly. From an estimated 2.5 billion people in 1950, the world's population grew to 8.1 billion by mid-November 2022, with one billion born since 2010, and two billion from 1998 onwards.

The desire for more ecologically friendly fertilizers is driving the adoption of ammonia-based solutions. Ammonium bicarbonate, which is a precursor to ammonia, will benefit from this modification. The manufacture of green ammonia is receiving substantial funding from big agriculture businesses and governments, which is opening the door for ammonium bicarbonate to become a widely available and sustainable feedstock. Market players must strategically adapt to stay up with the ever-changing environment as a result of this evolution, which presents both opportunities and challenges.
