India leads globally on urea capacity additions by 2030, says GlobalData

The company’s report: ‘Global Urea Capacity and Capital Expenditure Outlook, 2019 – India and Iran Lead Global Capacity Additions’ reveals that around 91 planned and announced plants are scheduled to come online, predominantly in Asia, Africa and the Former Soviet Union (FSU) over the next 11 years.

Of India’s urea capacity in 2030, 9.26 million tpy is expected to come from planned plants while 8.84 million tpy is likely to come from the early-stage announced plants. The country is set to bring 10 planned and 12 announced plants during the outlook period.

Dayanand Kharade, Oil and Gas Analyst at GlobalData, comments: "India is set to have large urea capacity additions to meet increasing demand and reduce its dependence on imports."

GlobalData identifies Iran as the second highest country in terms of capacity additions. The country is set to add 15.30 million tpy of planned and announced urea capacity from new-build and expansion plants by 2030. Among these, 11.02 million tpy is expected to come from planned plants and 4.29 million tpy from announced plants.

Among the companies, Dangote Industries Ltd, Nagarjuna Fertilizers and Chemicals Ltd, and Fertilizer Corporation of India Ltd globally lead with highest urea capacity additions of 5.54 million tpy, 3.34 million tpy and 2.99 million tpy respectively in 2030.
