Global Ammonium Sulfate Market Expected To Reach USD


Newark, NJ, May 27, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – According to the report published by Fior Markets, the global ammonium sulfate market is expected to grow from USD 3.30 billion in 2020 to USD 4.55 billion by 2028, at a CAGR of 4.1% during the forecast period 2021-2028

There are factors that are driving the growth of the global ammonium sulfate market. Some of them include the pharmaceutical industry, population increase, increased investment, research and development activities, awareness of the benefits of the product and limited arable land, and consumption of the product. such as chemical sulfur and nitrogen in soil fertilizers. Increasing the preference for ammonium sulfate for flooded soils used in rice cultivation as a nitrate fertilizer is a poor choice as it leads to denitrification and leaching. Moreover, various benefits of growing plant products such as protein synthesis are further influencing the Ammonium Sulfate market.

Ammonium sulfate is used as a fertilizer for crop production where sulfur and nitrogen are needed to increase soil fertility. Ammonium sulfate is produced as a by-product of industrial processes including coke oven plants and caprolactam. It is also used to purify proteins, food additives and flame retardants. In addition, it is used to produce ammonium salts, including ammonium persulfate. Apart from this, ammonium sulfate is also used in industrial chemicals, pharmaceutical applications, and feed supplements for livestock. Thus, it is also produced as a by-product during the production of methyl methacrylate (MMA), acrylonitrile and caprolactam (CPL). Ammonium sulfate is preferred as a soil fertilizer because it is readily absorbed by plants and is suitable for low pH soils.

The global ammonium sulfate market is expected to experience significant growth owing to the increasing supply of ammonium sulfate. In addition, the increasing use of ammonium sulfate in the agricultural sector to manufacture water soluble fungicides, insecticides and herbicides is expected to drive the market growth. In addition, the increasing use of ammonium sulfate in textile and leather products for dyeing and printing purposes is also increasing the growth of the market. Factors restraining the growth of the market are the availability of substitutes such as ammonium nitrate and the high costs associated with the production of ammonium sulfate during the forecast period. Rising concerns about the health of individuals in the immediate vicinity of the functional area are challenging the growth of the market.
