The global market for ammonium nitrate is expected to be driven by the fertilizer industry. With growing world population, the demand for food has been rising, which in turn raises the demand for fertilizers. Ammonium nitrate is a key fertilizer ingredient, and hence, likely to witness increased demand from the fertilizer industry. However, rising prices may hinder market growth in the fertilizer sector. Ammonium nitrate is also used in the manufacture of explosives, making it a useful ingredient in defence, mining, quarrying and construction sectors.
Ammonium nitrate fertilizer is very popular in the majority of European countries. In 2019, the world production and evident consumption of ammonium nitrates stood at over 20 million metric tons, of which nearly 80% and 19% accounted for ammonium nitrate and calcium-ammonium nitrate (CAN) respectively. Due to safety concerns associated with ammonium nitrate, calcium-ammonium nitrate (CAN) production has witnessed an increase in demand. These safety concerns may also negatively impact demand for ammonium nitrate.
Ammonium nitrate (NH4NO3) is manufactured by neutralizing nitric acid (HNO3) with ammonia (NH3). Depending on intended use, ammonium nitrate is sold in several forms. Liquid ammonium nitrate may be marketed as fertilizer, while liquid ammonium nitrate may be concentrated to produce an ammonium nitrate "melt" to be used in solids formation processes. Solid ammonium nitrate may be produced as prills, grains, granules, or crystals. According to melt concentration, produced prills could be high or low density. High density crystals, prills, and granules granules are used as fertilizer while grains are employed for the manufacture of explosives. Low density prills can be used in fertilizer as well as explosives. Ammonium nitrate is a fast release fertilizer, and enables the plants to quickly absorb nitrate and ammonium ions for immediate metabolism.
Several mining, quarrying, and construction industries use ammonium nitrate as a vital component of their blasting activities. In prill form, ammonium nitrate is a basic ingredient in ammonium nitrate fuel oil (ANFO) based products, and a key element (prill as well as liquid) in a wide range of customized bulk explosive blends. Ammonium nitrate (technical grade) is commonly employed as the main raw material for the production of civil explosives. It is also of primary use in fertilizer production. Low density ammonium nitrate explosive is widely employed in the mining industry. It is produced to be very porous to allow the rapid uptake of liquid fuel oil. The prill is covered with trace amounts of a waxy anti-caking material to improve flowability and handling characteristics. Hot ammonium nitrate liquor is also used in the mining industry.
Ammonium nitrate (electronics grade) is used in the electronics industry. Pure forms of ammonium nitrate are used to produce high-quality nitrous oxide (N2O) to be used in the electronics industry. This, in turn, increases the need for ammonium nitrate. Nitrous oxide is required for VLSI (very large-scale integration) or ULSI (ultra-large-scale integration). It is used in the gas-phase chemical deposition stage in the manufacture of semiconductors, LCD displays and thin-film oxides for products such as computers, smart phones, robots, cars, health devices, and space rockets.
Ammonium nitrate (medical grade) is also a vital component in the healthcare industry. It is a key element in the nitrous oxide gas used in the manufacture of anaesthetics employed in dentistry and surgery, and as a propellant for drugs packaged in aerosols. Other applications of ammonium nitrate include cold packs and food additives.
The United States, EU and Russia are key global producers and consumers of ammonium nitrate.
