Global Potassium Nitrate Market: By Raw Material: Potassium Chloride, Ammonium Nitrate, Sodium Nitrate; By End Use Industry: Agricultural Industry, General Industries, Pharmaceuticals, Others; Regional Analysis; Historical Market and Forecast (2015-2025); Market Dynamics; Competitive Landscape; Industry Events and Developments

Global Potassium Nitrate Market Outlook

The global potassium nitrate market attained a value of USD 1.56 billion in 2019 and is projected to reach USD 1.9 billion by 2025. The market is estimated to grow at a progressive CAGR of 3.4% during the forecast period of 2020-2025.

On the basis of raw materials, the potassium chloride segment was estimated to account for the largest market share in 2019. The segment is likely to retain its dominance over the forecast period. Based on end-uses, the agriculture industry represented the dominant segment in 2019. Potassium nitrate is widely used as a fertiliser along with other applications like its use in the production of gun powder, fireworks, medicines, etc. Nitrogen is a nutrient essential for all living organisms. When used as a fertiliser, potassium nitrate becomes a source of nitrogen and potassium. An increased population demands more crop production, which can be ensured with the use of a good fertiliser. It was estimated the world’s fertiliser consumption increased by approximately 1.8% a year through 2018. Thus, the growing fertiliser industry is acting as a catalyst for the global potassium nitrate market growth.

Regionally, the Asia Pacific represents the leading potassium nitrate market, accounting for the majority of the global share. Asia, the largest consumer of fertilisers in the world, relies on imports of all three primary nutrients. For instance, in India, the raw materials and intermediates are largely imported to produce nitrogenous and phosphatic fertilisers to meet domestic requirements. Due to the non-availability of any potash (K) reserve in the country, its entire requirement is fulfilled through imports. Globally, the largest exporter of fertilisers is Russia, accounting for about a fifth of the total fertiliser trade, along with other significant contributors like Canada, China, Belarus, and the United States. On the other hand, the world’s largest importer of fertilisers is the United States, followed by countries like Brazil, India, and China. These regions are majorly contributing to the growth of the potassium nitrate market.

 

Properties and Applications

Potassium nitrate (KNO3) is a crystalline salt that exhibits a colour of white to grey. It is also known as saltpetre or nitre. The salt is naturally found in the pure form and can also be prepared commercially by mixing sodium nitrate and potassium chloride. Potassium nitrate is a strong oxidizing agent that assists in accelerating the burning of combustible substances. Due to this, it is widely used as a constituent in fireworks, rocket propellants, gunpowder, and medicines. Apart from this, potassium nitrate finds immense applications
 
The potassium nitrate market can be majorly segmented on the basis of its raw material segments into:

  • Potassium Chloride
  • Ammonium Nitrate
  • Sodium Nitrate

The potassium nitrate market can be broadly categorised on the basis of its end-use segments into:

  • Agricultural Industry
  • General Industries
  • Pharmaceuticals
  • Food Industry
  • Others

The EMR report looks into the regional markets in the global potassium nitrate market like North America, Europe, the Asia Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East and Africa.

 

Market Analysis

Potassium nitrate is extensively used in the food industry to preserve food items such as beef, ham, salami, and among others, and in the agriculture sector to produce the fertilizers. Moreover, governments of developing countries are offering subsidies for the sales of fertilisers, resulting in the increased consumption of potassium nitrate. In addition to this, it is resistant to fungal diseases, improves drought tolerance, and maintains a balance between proteins and carbohydrates, and increase food formation in plants and root growth. Growing demand for speciality fertilisers has witnessed a surge in the agriculture segment, which in turn is stimulating the market growth. Furthermore, increasing concerns regarding the depletion of exhaustible resources have also led many organizations to resort to sustainable resources like CSPs, hence, is propelling the potassium nitrate market growth.

Drilling and blasting are essential practices in the mining process and are commonly used to break up benches of rock containing ore. For instance, in the coal mining industry, high-quality explosives such as potassium nitrate are used to extract coal from ground mines. With the surging need for blasting and drilling chemicals in the coal mining industry, the demand for potassium nitrate is expected to increase over the years to come.
