Global Urea Market to Grow at a CAGR of 0.8% over the Forecast Period of 2022-2027.

According to a new report by EMR titled, ‘Global Urea Market Report and Forecast 2022-2027’, the global demand for urea stood at a volume of 178.32 million metric tons in 2021. The demand for urea is further projected to grow at a CAGR of around 0.8% between 2022 and 2027 to attain a volume of 87.61 million metric tons by 2027.

The global urea market is being driven by the increased demand for the product in the agricultural sector to produce fertilisers. The fertiliser segment, among other applications of urea, serves as the most dominant sector, accounting for more than 80% of its global consumption. Within the Asia Pacific, the regions like India and Thailand are the major demand drivers of the traditional fertilisers, thus aiding the urea market. The Asia Pacific is the leading supply market for urea, accounting for more than 60% of the share in the global urea market. China is the leading consumer of urea, followed by India. China is also the largest producer of the product. While China is the net exporter of urea, India is the leading urea importer, accounting for more than 15% of its global imports.

Nitrogen is a key nutrient in any fertiliser programme, and it is delivered in the form of urea. In August 2020, Yara International ASA (OTCMKTS: YARIY), a key player in the industry, collaborated with Nel to produce carbon-free hydrogen for fertiliser production, which is expected to increase the demand for fertilisers and in turn urea, thus, aiding the global urea industry. Qatar Fertiliser Company, owned by IQ (75%), and Yara Netherland B.V. (25%), produces the majority of urea in either the prilled or granular form, and the company also manufactures Urea Formaldehyde Condensate (UFC-85), an anti-caking agent which is added to urea products to improve their strength. Such developments are expected to aid the growth of the global urea market over the forecast period.
