Ammonium nitrate, a salt of ammonia and nitric acid is a colorless and odorless chemical compound. Ammonium nitrate is found as a natural mineral (ammonia nitrate) in the driest regions of the Atacama Desert in Chile. Almost all ammonium nitrate used in the industry today is synthetically manufactured by Haber’s Process. Another method to synthetically produce ammonium nitrate crystals is through an irregular of the Odda Process.

The major driver for global ammonium nitrate market is increasing demand from the fertilizer industry, being more stable than urea and with more usage as fertilizer throughout the globe in the forecast time. The increasing demand for the product in fertilizers as a nitrogen source is expected to drive the market growth.

The demand for a high-quality crop is incrementing significantly which is boosting the consumption of fertilizers over the past few years. This has prompted the expansion and remodeling of older production facilities and building new ammonium nitrate manufacturing plant to meet the surging demand. Ammonium nitrate is also used for instant cold packs, as its dissolution in water is highly endothermic.

Another major ammonium nitrate market size driver is the growing demand of gunpowder and explosives. Numerous terrorist acts in the past few years involved the use of ammonium nitrate, which has compelled the government to revamp stern regulations towards the utilization of the product. With growing military expenditure and mining activities, the demand for explosives is expected to escalate from 2018 to 2026.
