Region : Global | Published Date: Upcoming | Report ID: FBI101716| Status : Upcoming



Ammonia is a pungent smelling colourless gas made of hydrogen and nitrogen. It can be obtained naturally from plants & animals or synthesized commercially. Ammonia is basic in nature and highly miscible in water, at high temperature and in presence of catalyst, ammonia can decompose to yield hydrogen. Ammonia is used in various processes such as coolant in refrigeration, metallurgy, production of synthetic fibres. There is increasing demand for ammonia from textile and agriculture end-use industries because of it use for dyeing and soil fertilizers. Being used for manufacturing of various chemicals such as urea, Ammonium sulphate, and ammonium phosphate is driving the ammonia market size globally.

On the basis of type, ammonia market is segmented into liquid, gas, and powder. Liquid ammonia is the largest consumed type due to its various application as fertilizers, industrial and household cleaning, dyeing of cottons, and others. Gaseous ammonia is the fastest growing type because of its properties to change states and absorbing heat making is a very useful refrigerant.
