Growth Highlights based on Region during 2018-2026

The global ammonium sulfate market is segmented by regions into North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific and Middle East and Africa. Among these regions, the market of Asia Pacific ammonium sulfate is primarily driven by nations such as China, India and Japan, where the cultivation of rice is increasingly high on the back of growing population in the nations which is raising the need for production of crops in these nations. The ammonium sulfate market in Asia Pacific was valued at around USD 1400 million in the year 2017 which contributed to a share of around 41% in the same year. The market in the region is further anticipated to reach a value of around USD 1900 million by the end of 2026. Additionally, Asia Pacific is also expected to expand by observing the growth rate of around 1.36x over the assessment period, which in turn is estimated to have a positive effect on the demand for ammonium sulfate in the long run.

Further, the ammonium sulfate market in North America is anticipated to grow at a modest CAGR over the forecast period on the back of alkaline nature of the soil in the region, which is raising the need for greater utilization of ammonium sulfate fertilizers. The market in the region is primarily driven by the United States, which is also known for being the largest individual consumer of aluminum sulfate.

The study further incorporates Y-O-Y Growth, demand & supply and forecast future opportunity in North America (United States, Canada), Latin America (Brazil, Mexico, Argentina, Rest of LATAM), Europe (U.K., Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Hungary, BENELUX [Belgium, Netherlands, Luxembourg], NORDIC [Norway, Denmark, Sweden, Finland], Poland, Russia, Rest of Europe), Asia-Pacific (China, India, Japan, South Korea, Malaysia, Indonesia, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Australia, New Zealand, Rest of Asia-Pacific), Middle East and Africa (Israel, GCC [Saudi Arabia, UAE, Bahrain, Kuwait, Qatar, Oman], North Africa, South Africa, Rest of Middle East and Africa). 

Market Drivers and Challenges

Growth Indicators

According to the statistics of the Food & Agricultural Organization (FAO) of the United Nations, the global demand for fertilizers, namely nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium (in total), is expected to grow from 185063 thousand tonnes in the year 2016 to 200919 thousand tonnes in the year 2022.

Demand for Nitrogen image

The demand for fertilizers across the globe is increasing subsequently owing to the growing population which is raising the need for the production of food that needs to be cultivated within the limited arable land available. Fertilizers are widely used in the cultivation of crops. Amongst all the chemical components available in fertilizers, nitrogen and sulfur are the two key constituents of fertilizers which help to increase soil fertility. Apparently, ammonia is the major raw material which is used to manufacture fertilizers. Chemically, ammonium sulfate-based fertilizers are made up of 21% nitrogen and 24% sulfur. The numerous available advantages of ammonium sulfate in fertilizer applications is thereby expected to drive the growth of the global ammonium sulfate market. Additionally, the growing demand for caprolactam, which is used for the production of ammonium sulfate, in the developing countries, along with the capacity addition for the production of caprolactam is also anticipated to drive the growth of the global ammonium sulfate market.


Availability of substitutes that provide the three primary nutrients, i.e. nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium, responsible for enhancing the nutrient content of fertilizers, along with the concern that ammonium sulfate accounts for nearly 4% of the total demand for nitrogen-based fertilizers, which raises the need for the utilization of substitutes, are some of the factors anticipated to impact negatively towards the growth of the global ammonium sulfate market.

Global Economic Impact

Request Insights
Despite Inflation & Fearing Recession, Businesses Across the Globe Expected to Do Better in 2023:

In 2023, market players might incur losses due to huge gap in currency translation followed by contracting revenues, shrinking profit margins & cost pressure on logistics and supply chain.
Controlling Inflation has become the first priority for global economies from last quarter of 2022 and to be followed in 2023. With skewed economic situations, rise in interest rate by governments to control spending and inflation, spiked oil and gas prices, high inflation, geo-political issues including U.S. & China trade war, Russia-Ukraine conflict to intensify the global economic issues.
The interest rates in the U.S. may be less sensitive in 2023 as compared to 2022; sigh of relief for businesses. Positive business sentiments, healthy business balance sheets, growth in construction spending (private construction value in 2022 stood at $1,429.2 billion, 11.7 percent (±1.0 percent) above the $1,279.5 billion spent in 2021, Residential construction in 2022 was $899.1 billion, up by 13.3 percent (±2.1 percent) from $793.7 billion in 2021, non-residential construction touched $530.1 billion, 9.1 percent (±1.0 percent) above the $485.8 billion in 2021.) showcases minimal impact of recession in the country.
Similarly, spiked spending in the European and major Asia economics including, India, China & Japan to showcase less impact on the global demand.
