Global Fertilizer Catalyst (Iron Based, Nickel Based) Market Analysis and Forecast, 2016-2020 and 2021-2027 –



DUBLIN – (COMMERCIAL THREAD) – The report “Global Fertilizer Catalyst Market Size, Share and Trend Analysis Report by Product (Iron-Based, Nickel-Based), by Process (Haber-Bosch Process, Production urea), by region and segment forecast, 2021-2027 “has been added to offer.

The global fertilizer catalyst market size is expected to reach $ 3.3 billion by 2027 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 2.4% from 2021 to 2027.

The market is expected to be driven by the increasing application in fertilizer production and the need to improve process efficiency.

The demand for ammonia and hydrogen gas in the agricultural and industrial sectors is increasing, which is positively impacting the growth of the market. In addition, the favorable regulations and subsidies offered by the government have led to an increase in the adoption of catalysts. Nickel based catalyst is the most important product on the market due to its high efficiency. They are used in the Ostwald process for the production of ammonia.

North America and Asia-Pacific are collectively expected to be the key markets for nickel catalysts around the world. Demand for nickel-based catalysts is expected to increase due to their affordability and ability to remove methane from the process.

Canada, South Africa and Russia are likely to become the main manufacturing sites for fertilizer catalysts due to the availability of raw materials. These countries are marked by the presence of large volumes of precious metal deposits. The major asset associated with these countries is the availability of raw materials.

The primary cost incurred by a large number of catalyst manufacturers is the cost of sourcing raw materials. Countries are also major exporters of fertilizers globally due to access to raw materials and the presence of large manufacturing facilities.

Highlights of the Fertilizer Catalyst Market Report

  • The nickel products segment is expected to grow at the fastest CAGR of 2.2%, by volume, from 2021 to 2027 due to its application as a substitute for iron products and the growing demand for it. ‘fertilizer.

  • The segment of rhodium-based products is expected to experience considerable growth in the coming years due to the increasing demand for rhodium-based catalysts in hydrogenation reactions.

  • The urea production process segment is expected to experience significant growth during the forecast period due to the increasing demand for urea based fertilizer.

  • In the Asia-Pacific region, India is expected to show the fastest growth rate of 2.6%, in terms of volume, from 2021 to 2027 due to increasing demand for nitrogen fertilizers.

  • In October 2019, Albemarle Corporation and ExxonMobil together created a platform called “Galexia” for the refining industry to provide a transformative hydrotreatment suite of catalysts and service solutions. This platform aims to improve the business operations of the company in order to respond effectively to customer demand.
