According to the report, the global diammonium hydrogen phosphate market was US$892 million in 2018 and is expected to reach around US$2367 million by 2025, at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of slightly above 12% from 2019–2025.
Diammonium hydrogen phosphate is a widely used salt, particularly as fertilizers, fire retardants, etc. It is manufactured using two components—ammonia and phosphoric acid. As a fertilizer, diammonium hydrogen phosphate is used for the cultivation of paddy, vegetable crops, peanut, and cotton.
The ever-growing population and shrinkage of plowable land have led to an increased dependency on fertilizers for higher productivity and improved quality of crops. This is likely to fuel the global diammonium hydrogen phosphate market in the future. The sudden rise in wine consumption due to its health benefits is also assisting with the global diammonium hydrogen phosphate market development. Furthermore, diammonium hydrogen phosphate is highly recommended as a fire retardant in various industries and buildings, as it can form high amounts of char. This is another factor expected to aid this market. However, the availability of various bio-based and eco-friendly fertilizers in the market may inhibit this market. Nevertheless, forthcoming technologies and untapped applications of diammonium hydrogen phosphate are projected to propel the diammonium hydrogen phosphate market over the forecast time period.
Based on application, the global diammonium hydrogen phosphate market is segmented into fertilizers, brewing, metal industry, fire retardant, and food industry. Fertilizers are the most likely to show good growth in the future, as they use huge amounts of diammonium hydrogen phosphate for obtaining an increased pH level. In brewing, diammonium hydrogen phosphate provides nutrition to yeast for fermentation. Additionally, diammonium hydrogen phosphate is used for extinguishing fires, as DAP produces low pyrolysis temperature with high char formation.
In 2018, the global diammonium hydrogen phosphate market was dominated by the Asia Pacific region. This regional dominance can be attributed to the growing advancements witnessed in the agricultural sector due to the presence of arable land and agriculture as an occupation for a large section of the Indian population. The increasing population in China and India has significantly contributed to the rising food demand which in turn spurs the dependency on fertilizers. In recent times, fertilizers are highly used for higher productivity and improved quality of crops, which helps in earning a good profit amount with product sales. This factor may further bolster the regional demand for diammonium hydrogen phosphate.
Latin America is anticipated to experience sustainable market growth in the upcoming years, due to substantial developments witnessed in Brazil along with the region’s growing wine industry, which is due to rising disposable income and improving living standards of the regional population. The escalating food requirement due to the growing population and rising use of fertilizers for improved quality and productivity is also contributing to the diammonium hydrogen phosphate market in this region.
