Key findings


The Global Nitric Acid market is expected to reach at US $14.90 billion by 2022 at the CAGR of 10.11% during 2015-2022. The Global Nitric Acid market is growing due to factors such as the increasing demand for ammonium nitrate as a fertilizer in the agricultural industry, High demand for ammonium nitrate as a fertilizer in the past few years, in addition to increasing incidences of groundwater contamination as a result of excessive fertilizer use is expected to restrict growth prospects over the forecast period.


Nitric Acid is a corrosive acid that becomes colorless in its pure form and pale yellow due to decomposition of oxides. Nitric acid with more than 85% concentration is termed as fuming nitric acid, while the commercial form has a concentration of approximately 70%. This acid can be classified as white fuming nitric acid and red fuming nitric acid based on color solution and nitrogen dioxide concentration. Nitric acid is popularly used in reagents required for nitration reactions.
The Growth of the global fertilizer industry is mainly driving the nitric acid market. As Nitric acid is used in the production of calcium ammonium nitrate and ammonium nitrate, which are used in fertilizers. Ammonium nitrate can further be used to produce urea ammonium nitrate (UAN), which is used in explosives and fertilizer solutions.


Market segment insight


The application market for Global Nitric Acid market is segmented on the basis of: by applications, and by geography. Currently the market is dominated by fertilizer segment. Fertilizers such as ammonium nitrate account for over 80% of the total nitric acid consumption. The ammonium nitrate produced is primarily used as a fertilizer in the agriculture industry. Further, some percent of the ammonium nitrate in engaged in production of alloy fertilizer blends including urea ammonium nitrate.


Regional insights


Globally, North America is largest market for nitric acid owing to large number of manufacturers in the US and the market is expected to further witness growth owing to emergence of end use industries including automobile, construction, furniture and agriculture. Increasing use of ammonium nitrate as explosive in mining industry is expected to provide growth prospects for the nitric acid market over the forecast period. Asia Pacific is likely to be the fastest growing market for nitric acid over the forecasted period of 2015-2022.
