Ammonium Sulfate Market Analysis

Ammonium sulfate is manufactured as a byproduct of industrial processes including caprolactam and coke oven production and it is an inorganic compound. It can also be produced synthetically using sulfuric acid and pure ammonia. Majority of commercially available products is obtained during the caprolactam oxidation process.

Ammonium sulfate was one of the first and most widely used nitrogen fertilizers for crop production. It is now less common but especially valuable where both nitrogen and sulfur are required. Its high solubility provides versatility for several agricultural applications.

COVID-19 Impact

  • The global market for ammonium sulfate market is severely impacted by the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic. 
  • The COVID-19 pandemic saw a decline in the economic growth in almost all the major countries, thus affecting consumer spending patterns. 
  • Owing to the lockdown implemented across various countries, national and international transport have been hampered, which has significantly impacted the supply chain of numerous industries across the globe, thereby increasing the supply–demand gap.
  • Thus, insufficiency in raw material supply is expected to hamper the production rate of ammonium sulfate, which negatively impact the market growth.

Top impacting factors: Market Scenario Analysis, Trends Drivers 

Ammonium sulphate market is predicted to see a boost during the forecast period due to increase in usage of it in the pharmaceutical and food additive industries. Ammonium sulphate as an additive, which helps in controlling the pH level of baked products and is usually used as a dough conditioner and dough strengthener. Thus, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has considered ammonium sulfate as a safe acidity regulator in bread and flours. 

One of the major factors boosting the worldwide ammonium sulphate market is use of the product as a soil fertilizer as the chemical contains nitrogen and sulfur. Further, ammonium sulphate consists nitrogenous elements as well as sulfur which is used for protein synthesis in plants. It is also used for decreasing the acidity in alkaline soils as they have a high pH level. Moreover, ammonium sulphate is also used for flooded soils used in rice cultivation as nitrate-based fertilizers are a poor choice as they could lead to denitrification and leaching. Hence, due to various uses mentioned above, ammonium sulphate market is anticipated to see great opportunities for revenue generation during the forecast period. However, ammonium sulfate is toxic to human health. For instance, worker’s exposure to ammonium sulfate in production sites, transportation and processing could cause severe respiratory route infection due to inhalation of aqueous aerosols and dust. Prolonged skin contact might cause dermatitis, lung damage, and permanent eye damage. Such factors are predicted to hamper the market growth.

Regional Analysis

The global ammonium sulphate market is studied across major four regional markets including North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA. Asia-Pacific is expected to be the largest market over the coming years in response to the growing population, along with the rise in food consumption, has led to an increase in the overall demand for agricultural commodities. This demand has encouraged local farmers to increase agricultural productivity by incorporating fertilizers. In addition to this, increased dependency on nitrogen-based fertilizers is further expected to complement the growth of this region. In addition, Europe is expected to register significant growth, since it has imposed restrictions on the consumption of nitrates, which is expected to positively impact the demand for ammonium sulfate.
