Report ID: 131263 3300 Chemical & Material 377 233 Pages 4.9 (39)

Market Overview:

The global urea market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 3.5% from 2018 to 2030. The growth in the market can be attributed to the increasing demand for urea from the agriculture sector and rising demand for fertilizers in developing countries. Granular urea is the most popular type of urea and is expected to dominate the market during the forecast period. Asia Pacific is expected to be the fastest-growing region in terms of revenue, followed by Latin America and Europe.

Global Urea Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Urea is a nitrogenous compound that is produced when protein breaks down in the body. It is excreted in urine and plays an important role in maintaining fluid balance and regulating blood pressure.

Granular urea:

Granular urea is a type of urea, which is granular in nature and has high solubility in water. It can be used as an agricultural fertilizer or for the production of synthetic turf.

Small particles of urea:

Small particles of urea are used as a nitrogen source in fertilizers. Urea is the primary nitrogen source for plants and most of the crops on earth. It is produced by an industrial process called the Haber-Bosch process, which involves a reaction between ammonia and hydrogen sulfide. The resulting product has very low toxicity levels compared to other products such as ammonium nitrate or calcium ammonium nitrate (CAN).

Application Insights:

The industry application segment led the global market in 2017 and is projected to expand at a revenue-based CAGR of XX% over the forecast period. The growth can be attributed to increasing demand for agricultural chemicals across various regions, including Asia Pacific, Latin America and Middle East & Africa. In addition, technological advancements coupled with new product launches are expected to drive the demand for urea in several applications such as pesticides manufacturing and paper processing over the coming years.

Urea has numerous uses in agriculture which include crop fertilization, soil improvement & fertility maintenance as well as animal feed supplements among others.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific was the largest market in 2017 and is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period. The presence of a large number of fertilizer manufacturers coupled with increasing demand from emerging economies such as China, India, and Japan is likely to drive urea consumption in this region. Asia Pacific accounted for 37% of global urea production in 2017.

The industry outlook remains positive due to rising agricultural output coupled with government support for promoting FDI through favorable policies & regulations aimed at reducing import dependence. For instance, Government of India allowed 100% FDI under automatic route for food products in 2014 which will promote domestic manufacturing leading to higher product availability over the next eight years.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for urea as a fertilizer from the agriculture sector, due to the increasing population and their demand for food.
  • The increasing use of urea in non-agricultural applications such as animal feed, textile industries, etc.
  • The growing awareness about the benefits of using urea among farmers and other end users
  • Technological advancements in the production of urea that have helped reduce its cost
  • Stringent environmental regulations that promote the use of nitrogen-based fertilizers like urea
