Global Granular Urea Market Highlights Over 2022-2031

The global granular urea market is estimated to garner a notable ~3.5% CAGR over the forecast period, i.e., 2022– 2031. The market growth can be attributed to proliferating demand for fertilizers in the agriculture sector. As nitrogen is the largest of the three primary nutrients required by crops for good growth and urea consists of 46% of nitrogen, making it the widely used fertilizer for efficient plant growth. For instance, the total factor productivity (TFP) is growing by approximately 1.3 % in 2019-2020, while at least 1.7% growth is required to sustainably meet the needs of consumers for food. Moreover, it is foreseen that almost 810 million people all over the world remain hungry. Governments all over the world are taking measures to deal with hunger and providing subsidies on urea to the farmers. Hence the global granular urea market is expected to witness a boost over the forecast period to meet worldwide food demand.

Furthermore, granular urea is cost-effective and offers a higher crop yield in lesser time, resulting in its widespread usage. The granular urea can be used in growing multitudinous crops, such as, rice, sugar beets, perennial grass, corn for grain and hay, oats, rye, potatoes, sunflower, soybeans, wheat, and others. Owing to these applications, the global granular urea market is projected to grow significantly over the forecast period.

The market is segmented by application into agriculture, chemical, and construction. The agriculture segment is anticipated to hold the largest share in the global granular urea market over the forecast period on account of the unprecedented demand for fertilizers. It is estimated that around 90% of the total urea manufactured worldwide is used as fertilizer, which is the reason that the market in the agriculture segment is expected to grow significantly over the forecast period.

Major Macro-Economic Indicators Impacting the Market Growth

Chemicals (% of Value Added in Manufacturing) – 2016-2018

The chemical industry is a major component of the economy. According to the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis, in 2020, for the U.S., the value added by chemical products as a percentage of GDP was around 1.9%. Additionally, according to the World Bank, the Chemical industry in the U.S. accounted for 16.43% of manufacturing value-added in 2018. With the growing demand from end-users, the market for chemical products is expected to grow in the future. According to UNEP (United Nations Environment Programme), the sales of chemicals are projected to almost double from 2017 to 2030. In the current scenario, Asia Pacific is the largest chemical producing and consuming region. China has the world’s largest chemical industry, which accounted for annual sales of approximately more than USD 1.5 trillion, or about more than one-third of global sales, in recent years. Additionally, a vast consumer base and favourable government policies have boosted investment in China’s chemical industry. Easy availability of low-cost raw material & labour, as well as government subsidies and relaxed environmental norms, have served as a production base for key vendors globally. On the other hand, according to the FICCI (Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce & Industry), the chemical industry in India was valued at 163 billion in 2019 and it contributed 3.4% to the global chemical industry. It ranks 6th in global chemical production. This statistic shows the lucrative opportunity for investment in businesses in Asia Pacific countries in the upcoming years.

Global Granular Urea Market Regional Synopsis

Regionally, the global granular urea market is segmented into five major regions, including North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East & Africa region.
