Calcium Nitrate Market Growth Outlook (2022-2032)

The global market for calcium nitrate stands at a value of US$ 12.8 billion in 2022 and is projected to surpass a US$ 20.7 billion sales valuation by the end of 2032.

Worldwide demand for calcium nitrate is predicted to increase at a 4.9% CAGR from 2022 to 2032, says Fact.MR.

Growing demand for chemical fertilizers is anticipated to significantly influence the demand for calcium nitrate over the coming years. The growing population has led to high agricultural consumption and the advent of yield-destroying plant diseases has also resulted in high demand for calcium nitrate fertilizers.

Increasing focus on sustainable and clean eating has pushed farmers toward the use of sustainable and organic fertilizers which is expected to benefit the market potential in the future.

Agricultural-grade calcium nitrate still holds a prominent market share at present but, is expected to lose some of its share to industrial-grade calcium nitrate as its scope of application in various industries increases.

Rising demand for water treatment processes, flourishing concrete manufacturing industry, rising demand for agricultural produce, rapid industrialization across the world, and increasing focus on sustainability are some of the prime factors that are expected to uplift sales of calcium nitrate products over the coming years.

However, the availability of several alternatives such as potassium nitrate and ammonium nitrate is anticipated to have a constraining effect on the overall market development in the long run. Emerging economies are expected to provide highly rewarding opportunities for calcium nitrate manufacturers owing to increasing investments in infrastructure development.

The market for calcium nitrate [Ca(NO3)2] in the Asia Pacific region accounts for a dominant market share at present and is projected to maintain a similar stance throughout the forecast period. The growth in this region can be majorly ascribed to a robust agricultural sector in economies such as India, China, and Indonesia.

Demand for calcium nitrate in China is predicted to rise at a CAGR of 5.8% over the next ten years and is slated to accumulate a sales revenue of US$ 3.4 billion by the end of the forecast period.

A more detailed analysis of all the trends, drivers, restraints, challenges, and opportunities shaping market growth has been discussed extensively in this latest calcium nitrate market report by skilled analysts at Fact.MR, a market research and competitive intelligence provider.
