Global Nitric Acid Market Outlook to 2026: Increasing Demand for Fertilizer Due to Growing Need for High Crop Yield as Population Growth Continues -

September 6, 2021 GMT

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep 6, 2021--

The “Global Nitric Acid Market Outlook to 2026” report has been added to’s offering.

The global Nitric Acid Market is expected to witness a significant growth rate during the forecast period. Increasing fertilizer demand due to the rising need for high crop yield to address the increasing necessity of growing population is expected to be the significant driver of nitric acid market during the forecast period.

Furthermore, the rising consumption of nitric acid in chemicals like toluene di-isocyanate (TDI) and adipic acid is anticipated to drive the overall market growth during the forecast period. However, the presence of a large amount of nitric acid in chemical effluent released from plants is likely to cause contamination of soil and groundwater which is likely to hinder the global nitric acid market during the forecast period.


Asia-Pacific is expected to dominate the nitric acid market due to the continuous rising demand from end-user industries including chemical processing industries, fertilizers, pigments, and dyes, in countries like China and India. Furthermore, China has emerged as the biggest consumer and producer of fertilizer which is likely to drive the market during the forecast period.

The fertilizer industry producing ammonium nitrate and calcium nitrate fertilizers is one of the major consumers of nitric acid. Hence, for meeting the needs of the increasing global food demand, more land is required for cultivation, and hence, fertilizer demand is likely to increase with the global fertilizer industry during the forecast period.

The global nitric acid market is fragmented. Some of the key players in the market are BASF SE, Deepak Fertilisers and Petrochemicals Corporations Ltd., LSB Industries, and Nutrien Ltd., among others.
