LONDON--()--Please replace the release dated November 11, 2016 with the following corrected version due to multiple revisions.

The corrected release reads:


Technavio has announced the top five leading suppliers in the global nitrogen market until 2020. These suppliers are identified based on their revenue and market dominance in terms of experience, geographical presence, product portfolio, financials, and R&D.

Competitive market landscape

Global nitrogen production is expected to increase by 9% by 2019. In Asia, which constitutes around 60% of the global share for nitrogen, an increase in nitrogen demand is expected from India and China, followed by Pakistan, Indonesia, Bangladesh, Vietnam, and Malaysia. In the Americas, an increase in demand is expected from Latin America. North America will account for around 5% of increase in demand. In Europe, an increase in demand is expected from Eastern Europe and Central Asia, mainly in Russia and Ukraine. This is expected to be followed by Central Europe.

Many global and regional suppliers are vertically integrated and maintain their own distribution channels through a system of terminals, warehouses, and associated transportation equipment. These suppliers have strategic access to ports and have a centralized management system that helps them to maximize freight advantages across locations. The standalone suppliers, however, do not have their own distribution networks. Therefore, they are dependent on wholesalers and retailers to sell their products, thus incurring higher costs.

Technavio’s new market intelligence sample reports are free of charge and contain multiple sections of the report including the market size and forecast, drivers, challenges, trends, and more.

According to Angad Singh, a category specialist,The global nitrogen market is expected to grow at a CAGR of close to 3% during the forecast period. The demand for nitrogen is expected to increase due to stable crop prices and strong growth in emerging economies, which is driven by growing use of urea in both fertilizer and industrial applications.”
