Global Ammonium Sulfate Market Is Expected to Reach USD 4.55 Billion by 2028 : Fior Markets

Ammonium Sulfate Market Share, Share & Trends Analysis Report By Application (Food & Feed Additives, Fertilizers, Water Treatment, Pharmaceuticals, Textile), By Product (Liquid, Solid), By Region and Forecasts, 2021-2028

Newark, NJ, May 27, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- As per 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

Certain factors are boosting the growth of the global ammonium sulfate market. Some of them include the pharmaceutical industry, increase in population, the surge in investment, research and development activities, growth in awareness regarding the benefits of the product and limited arable land, and consumption of the product like soil fertilizer chemical sulfur and nitrogen. The rise in the preference for ammonium sulfate for flooded soils used in rice cultivation as nitrate-based fertilizers is a poor choice because they lead to denitrification and leaching. And, also various benefits of the plant's product growth, such as protein synthesis, further influence the ammonium sulfate market.

Ammonium sulfate is used as a fertilizer for crop production where sulphur and nitrogen are required to increase soil fertility. Ammonium sulfate is produced as a by-product of industrial processes, including coke oven plant and caprolactam. It is also used for purifying protein, food additives, and flame retardants. Furthermore, it is used to produce ammonium salts, including ammonium persulfate. Apart from this, ammonium sulfate is also used in industrial chemicals, pharmaceutical applications, and cattle feed supplements. 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 as it is easily absorbed by plants and is suitable for soils with a low ph.

The global ammonium sulfate market is anticipated to witness significant growth due to the increase in the supply of ammonium sulfate.  Also, the growing use of ammonium sulfate in the agriculture sector to manufacture water-soluble fungicides, insecticides, and herbicides is expected to drive market growth.  Moreover, the increasing use of ammonium sulfate in textile and leather products for dying and printing purposes also augments the market's growth. The factors restraining the market growth are the availability of substitutes like ammonium nitrate and the high costs associated with ammonium sulfate production during the forecast period. The rise in the concerns relating to the health of the individuals in close vicinity of the functional area challenges the market growth.


Key players operating in the ammonium sulfate market include Honeywell International Inc., LANXESS, ArcelorMittal, GSFC, DOMO Chemicals GmbH, OCI Nitrogen, GFS Chemicals, Inc., Martin Midstream Partners L.P., AdvanSix, BASF SE, Vertellus Holdings LLC, GAC Chemical Corporation, Evonik Industries AG, Nutrien Ltd., Koninklijke DSM N.V., Arkema, Merck KGaA, and Sumitomo Corporation. To gain a significant market share in the global ammonium sulfate market, the key players are now focusing on adopting product innovations, mergers & acquisitions, recent developments, joint ventures, collaborations, and partnerships.
