                                              Abstract, Snapshot, Market Analysis & Market Definition: Global Ammonium Sulfate Market

The global ammonium sulfate market size was valued at USD 2.71 billion in 2018 and is expected to register a CAGR of 4.9% from 2019 to 2025. Ammonium sulfate is prepared from ammonia and sulfuric acid. The market is anticipated to be driven by the growing usage of nitrogen-based fertilizers to increase the crop yield. Usage of nitrogen fertilizers result in increased productivity by providing the plants with appropriate amount of nutrients.
Ammonium sulfate is widely used in fertilizers as it enables slow release of nitrogen making it last longer. Solid fertilizer is a leading product owing to the rising usage of hammers and crushers in industrial sectors. It is also used in food additives, pharmaceuticals, and several industrial applications. Traditionally, the product was produced by neutralization process.
There are several other methods of extracting ammonium sulfate, namely caprolactam, gypsum, coke oven and others.
Ammonium sulfate is used as a food additive in flours and breads. Increasing consumption of confectionary and baked food products is likely to boost the demand further. It is classified as Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS) ingredient by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
It is also classified under the E category by the European Union. E category items are permitted to be used as food additives within the European Union and Switzerland. Geographically, Asia Pacific led the global market in terms of volume and is likely to expand further on account of rapidly expanding food & beverage and fertilizers sectors in the region.
