As per our analysis, some of the important market factors and trends identified in the global ammonium nitrate market are, increasing construction activities, rising consumption in explosives, growing defense sector, and others. Furthermore, increasing population along with rising demand for good quality food in limited arable land compelled farmers to raise the crop production yields, which has resulted in increased demand for fertilizer, which in turn is expected to drive the demand for ammonium nitrate over the forecast period. In recent years, coal consumption has increased for energy production which has increased the mining activities across the globe. Growth in mining activities leads to the higher consumption of explosives, which in turn is estimated to propel the demand for ammonium nitrate over the estimated period. Moreover, increasing construction activities along with repairing infrastructure activities in developed and developing regions are predicted to drive the growth of the market in the upcoming years. However, stringent regulations imposed by government bodies as well as workplace effect on health is predicted to hinder the growth of the market.
Ammonium Nitrate is a chemical compound with chemical formula NH4NO3, commonly utilized in explosives and fertilizers. Moreover, a commercial grade of ammonium nitrate exhibits 33.5% nitrogen, all forms of which can be utilized by plants. In addition, it is widely utilized to change the explosion rate of different explosives for instance nitroglycerin in the form ammonia dynamites, or in ammonals as an oxidizing agent is considered as one of the main component of ANFO (ammonium nitrate fuel oil) an explosive which is widely utilized in many countries. Application of ammonium nitrate is widely utilized in end use industries such as construction, mining, quarry, agriculture, and others.
