The concentrated nitric acid market is projected to reach USD 25.24 Billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 3.1% from 2017 to 2022. Concentrated nitric acid is used in the manufacturing of ammonium nitrate, adipic acid, nitrobenzene, toluene diisocyanate, trinitrotoluene, and nitroglycerine. These applications are used across various end-use industries such as agrochemicals, explosives, automotive, electronics, and others. The growth of these end-use industries is expected to drive the market growth of the concentrated nitric acid during the forecast period.

Based on type, the concentrated nitric acid market has been segmented into strong nitric acid (concentration 50-85%) and fuming nitric acid (concentration equal to or more than 86%). Strong nitric acid is estimated to be the fastest-growing type of the concentrated nitric acid market during the forecast period. It is used in manufacturing various applications such as ammonium nitrate, adipic acid, nitrobenzene, nitro chlorobenzene, toluene diisocyanate (TDI), and trinitrotoluene (TNT). Strong nitric acid, a class-2 oxidizer, moderately increase the burning rate of materials that they are in contact. This property is used in developing secondary explosives.

Ammonium nitrate is estimated to be the largest segment among the applications. It is widely used in fertilizers and explosives. In fertilizers, ammonium nitrate can be used directly, or it can be used as an intermediate for other nitrogen fertilizers, such as calcium ammonium nitrate and urea ammonium nitrate.

Among end-use industries of concentrated nitric acid, agrochemicals is estimated to remain the largest segment during the forecast period. The increasing demand for nitrogen fertilizers from the emerging countries such as China, India, and Brazil is estimated to fuel the demand for ammonium nitrate in the fertilizers segment. Increased awareness about impacts of ammonium nitrate on soil fertilizer and water resources have reduced the demand from developed countries in Europe and North America. However, the demand for other nitrogen fertilizers such as calcium ammonium nitrate and urea ammonium nitrate is rising. Nitrobenzene is used in crop protection products such as pesticides. The rising demand for nitrogen fertilizer and crop protection products in the global agrochemical industry is estimated to fuel the demand for concentrated nitric acid during the forecast period.

Concentrated Nitric Acid Market

Rising demand for concentrated nitric acid from the agrochemicals, explosives, automotive, and electronics industries is driving the market of concentrated nitric acid, globally. Asia Pacific is projected to be the fastest-growing market for concentrated nitric acid during the forecast period, followed by Europe and North America. The growth of the market can be attributed to the presence of the regional manufacturers of concentrated nitric acid, such as Hanwha Corporation (South Korea), Shandong Fengyuan Chemical Stock Co. Ltd. (China), and Ube Industries (Japan) in the region. The concentrated nitric acid market in China is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period.

The prices of concentrated nitric acid are dependent on the prices of natural gas and its derivatives (ammonia). The fluctuations in the prices of natural gas and ammonia compel the manufacturers of concentrated nitric acid to change prices of their products. This affects the concentrated nitric acid market growth in the short term.

The companies operating in the market of concentrated nitric acid are investing increasingly in the expansion of capacities and improving distribution networks and thus enhance their positions in the market. They have adopted the strategy of mergers & acquisitions to cater to the increasing demand for concentrated nitric acid from different regions. For instance, CF Industries. acquired the remaining 50% shares of GrowHow (UK), the largest nitrogen fertilizer manufacturer in the UK. This has increased the capacity of CF Industries to cater the demand from Europe and increased its brand value in the region.
