By 2026, the global demand is projected to attain 211.5 million metric tons. The most dominant application sector is the fertilizer segment, accounting for over 80% of the global consumption of urea.

The Asia Pacific is the major supply market, accounting for almost 60% of the global urea market share. The demand rate in the region is expected to stand at a CAGR of 2.2% in the forecast period. The healthy growth in the region owes to the growing demand from India and Thailand for traditional fertilisers. Within the Asia Pacific region, China is the largest producer as well as consumer of urea. India follows China as the second-largest consumer market. China is also the net exporter of urea, exporting majorly to India and North America. Although most of the exporters are from gas-rich countries, China is a significant exporter due to its rich coal supply, which is a feedstock of the product. Unlike China, which is a self-sufficient urea market, India imports the product in order to meet the regional demand. India is among the top importers of urea globally, accounting for over 15% of the total imports. Other than China, Indonesia, and Pakistan export the product to meet the domestic demand within the region. The other major importing countries in the region include South Korea and Thailand.

North America, another significant urea market, is expected to expand its capacity, which would reduce the region’s reliance on imports. There are multiple projects proposed in order to expand the capacity and, thus, the supply in the region. The demand for the product in North America is higher than the global market growth rate. The growing demand can also be attributed to the increasing economy in the region.

 

Market Segmentation

Market Analysis

The growing agriculture sector is driving the global urea market growth. Urea and its derivatives are widely used as fertilisers in most of the markets, including North America, Brazil, and India. The growing demand for N-fertilisers is providing a push to the growing demand for the product in the market. Thus, the rising fertilizer market, as well as nitrogen application, is driving the urea market growth further.

China has abundant sources of coal, an important feedstock for urea production, and the Chinese coal prices support the growth of urea production in the region. The developing countries, like the South Asian and Latin American countries, are likely to have an increased demand for the product as compared to other regions due to the increasing consumption of the product in these countries. Urea also acts as a vital feedstock in the production of adhesives, resins, plastics, etc. Thus, the growth of the markets of these products significantly supports the growth of the urea market. The product is also being increasingly used in automobiles due to the changing regulations regarding the use of nitrogen oxide in diesel engines, which is propelling the urea market further. The product is also used abundantly to produce urea-formaldehyde resins, melamine, diesel exhaust fluids, and livestock feed, and their growing demand is supporting the growth of the industry.
