Market Driver:

Surging Construction Activities to Enable Speedy Expansion

The increasing application of the HNO3 agriculture industry for the manufacturing of fertilizers such as ammonium nitrate, potassium nitrate, calcium ammonium nitrate, and nitro phosphate will foster the healthy growth of the market. The utilization of fertilizers to increase crop yield and serve the rising population’s needs will spur opportunities for the nitric acid industry. Furthermore, the growing disposable income of consumershas subsequently boosted the demand for organic and quality food, thereby aiding the market growth. The surging construction activities will consequently accelerate the development of the market in the forthcoming years. For instance, Toluene di-isocyanate (TDI), a HNO3 intermediate,is used to manufacture polyurethane foams, wood and floor coatings, and insulation materials. The improving lifestyle of consumers and increasing renovation activities will contribute significantly to the market growth. Besides, new governmental infrastructure projects will bolster the nitric acid market growth.

Disturbed Supply Chain to Affect HNO3 Production Amid Coronavirus

The coronavirus pandemic had a drastic impact on industries, causing temporary shutdown of manufacturing and trade activities. The declined demand and production have disrupted the supply chain. Moreover, the momentary halt on automotive production has led to reduced demand for this type of acid, thus hampering this market. However, the rising application of plastic in the medical industry will favor development of the market. The growing demand for PPE kits has led to high production of plastics, propelling market growth for nitric acid.
