Ammonia (NH3) is an inorganic, colorless compound with a pungent odor. It is produced in the soil from the decomposition of organic matter, such as animals and plants, and through the Haber-Bosch process that involves reacting nitrogen and hydrogen in the presence of a catalyst. It can absorb heat from its surroundings and can filter and purify impurities from liquid mediums. As a result, ammonia is widely utilized as a refrigerant in heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems. Besides this, it also finds extensive applications in manufacturing ammonium nitrate fertilizers, plastics, textiles, explosives, coloring agents, household cleaning products, and pesticides.
The market is primarily driven by the expanding agricultural industry across the globe. With the rising population and decreasing arable lands for crop cultivation, farmers are widely adopting nitrogen-rich ammonia-based fertilizers and agrochemicals to ensure optimal food production for the masses. In addition, the increasing product utilization as a purifying agent in water treatment plants represents another major growth-inducing factor. Besides this, ammonia is widely used in household cleaning products and detergents as it is highly effective in removing stains and cleaning glass without leaving residual streak marks. This, coupled with the rising product adoption in the textile industry for manufacturing synthetic fibers, sourcing cotton and silk, and dyeing fabrics, is creating a positive market outlook across the globe. Moreover, the escalating demand for ammonium nitrate for mining and explosive activities, the emerging industrial applications of ammonia, and the development of green ammonia are some of the other factors propelling the market growth.
