Nitrogen is one of the most vital nutrient required by all plants for thefast growth and developmentwhich results inquadruplingtheir agricultural productivity. Though present in abundance in nature, several plants are incapable of converting them into a form they can use. This lead to the need of nitrogenous fertilizers in agricultural fields.The Haber Bosch process is the most commonly used process for the production of nitrogenous fertilizers and Natural gas is the major raw materials employed in this process.
Nitrogenous fertilizers are used to provide nutrition and enhance growth. The nitrogen in the fertilizers stimulates chloroplasts in plants and enhances the rate of photosynthesis, improving the quality and quantity of yields. They are inorganic in nature and available in two forms: dry pellets and liquid.

Market Dynamics

Demand for nitrogenous fertilizers is directly dependent upon the demand for grains and oilseeds crops. Hence, High population growth and increasing disposable income are the major driving factors for the growth of nitrogenous fertilizer market. High productivity and comparative benefits of nitrogenous fertilizers over the other fertilizers are adding fuel to the demand for these fertilizers. Extensive research & development activities by all major companies to develop more efficient and eco-friendly nitrogenous fertilizers have also been driving the market growth.
Increasing food security concerns, a rise in awareness regarding soil profile and nutritional balance, need for better field productivity, growing consumption of meat-based food products and the mounting need for fertilizers in biofuel production have propelled the growth further.


The regulatory and environmental constraints pertaining to fertilizer use and the growing organic options are creating obstacles to market growth. The gas prices in most countries have a correlation to crude oil prices that is leading to volatility in nitrogen fertilizer market priceand several environmental and health hazards associated with nitrogen-based fertilizers has been a major factor restraining demand for nitrogenous fertilizers.
