Dublin, Feb. 22, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Catalyst Fertilizers Market by Fertilizer Production Process (Haber-Bosch Process, Contact Process), Metal Group (Base Metals, Precious Metals), Fertilizer Application (Nitrogenous, Phosphatic), and Region - Global Forecast to 2023" report has been added to's offering.

The catalyst fertilizers market is projected to reach USD 2.5 billion by 2023, from USD 2.3 billion in 2018, at a CAGR of 2.36%.

The catalyst fertilizers market is driven by various factors such as increasing demand for ammonia and phosphate fertilizers across the globe and increasing need for reforming catalysts in ammonia production facilities. However, the long replacement period associated with catalysts may hinder the growth of the market on a global level.

Catalysts, especially for ammonia and sulfuric acid synthesis, are extensively used in fertilizer production, with a view to increase the rate of reaction and also to reduce the emissions from these processes. The fertilizer catalysts market has been growing steadily since decades, with the emergence of Haber-Bosch and contact process for fertilizer production, and the growing innovations in ammonia production and emission control techniques.

Before 1918, the adoption of catalysts in ammonia production was limited; however, with the emergence of the Haber-Bosch process, the demand for catalysts had increased among fertilizer manufacturing units. On the other hand, though the contribution of the fertilizer industry in GHG emissions is less, with the increasing production of ammonia across the globe, the contribution has been on the rise. According to the US Geological Survey (USGS), nitrous oxide emissions into the environment have been majorly from ammonia plants, owing to which catalysts are developed to reduce the emissions at the production level.

Key players such as DuPont (US), Clariant International (Switzerland), QuantumSphere Inc. (US), and PDIL (India) have been rapidly developing catalysts to curb these emissions. Processes such as catalytic reforming of organic wastes and plasma catalysis are being developed as efficient alternatives for the Haber-Bosch process, and have been gaining interest among fertilizer manufacturers. This further increases the scope of market growth for fertilizer catalysts.

The scope of this report includes a detailed study of those catalyst manufacturers whose portfolio mentions the end use as fertilizers, such as Clariant International (Switzerland), DowDuPont (US), Project & Development India Ltd. (India), Johnson Matthey (UK), Haldor Topse (Denmark), LKAB Minerals (Sweden), N.E.Chemcat (Japan), QuantumSphere Inc. (US), Quality Magnetite (US), and Oham Industries (India).
