Global Fertilizer Catalyst (iron-based, nickel-based) market analysis and forecasts, 2016-2020 & 2021-2027

DUBLIN, November 25, 2021– (BUSINESS WIRE) – “Global Fertilizer Catalyst Market Size, Share & Trends Analysis Report by Product (Iron Based, Nickel Based), by Process (Haber-Bosch Process, Urea Production), by Region, and Segment Forecasts, 2021 -2027 “report has been added’s offer.

The global market size for fertilizer catalysts is expected to reach $ 3.3 billion by 2027 and is expected to expand with a CAGR of 2.4% from 2021 to 2027

The market is expected to be driven by the growing use in the production of fertilizers and the need to improve process efficiency.

Demand for ammonia and hydrogen gas in the agricultural and industrial sectors is increasing, which has a positive effect on market growth. In addition, favorable rules and subsidies from 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 ammonia production.

North America and Asia and the Pacific together are expected to be the key markets for nickel-based catalysts worldwide. The demand for nickel-based catalysts is expected to grow due to their affordability and the ability to eliminate methane from the process.

Canada, South Africa and Russia are likely to emerge as the largest production sites for fertilizer catalysts due to the availability of raw materials. These countries are marked by the presence of large amounts of precious metals. The main advantage associated with these countries is the availability of raw materials.

Acquisition costs for raw materials are the largest cost for a large number of catalyst producers. The countries are also major exporters of fertilizers globally due to the availability of raw materials and the presence of large production facilities.

Market report for fertilizer catalysts
