Key Market Trends

Rising Demand for Urea is driving the market

Urea has the highest nitrogen content among all the solid fertilizers and is used widely as a major source of nitrogen for agricultural use. Also, the relative humidity of urea is high which makes it withstand the hot and humid conditions. Therefore, it is preferred to ammonium nitrate and calcium ammonium nitrate (CAN) and also has a rising demand in the market owing to its usage both in solid and liquid form. This further accelerates the growth of the fertilizer additive market.

The rising demand for urea-based fertilizers is another factor that drives the growth of the market. Additionally, technological innovations are also augmenting the growth of the market studied. According to a study by Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada, the use of ammonium thiosulphate as a urease inhibitor with the varying surface placement of urea and urea ammonium nitrate in production of hard red spring wheat under reduced tillage management. TIB® Thio ATS, by TIB Chemicals, is one of the popular ammonium thiosulphate inhibitors sold in the North American region.
