Inorganic Chemicals Market – Industry Trends, Outlook, Regulatory Bodies & Regulations and Key Market Players
Inorganic chemicals are a combination of two or more elements other than carbon. Carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, carbides, carbonates, and cyanides are exceptions, as these are inorganic chemicals despite having carbon. Rising demand for inorganic chemicals in the fertilizers industry is expected to be one of the prime factors driving market growth. Moreover, due to stringent government regulations and stagnant economy in the developed countries of North America and Europe, the market is estimated to fuel growth of the market in emerging economies of Asia Pacific and Middle East. Cheap labor costs in countries such as China and India, makes these the preferred production hubs for global manufacturers. This helps reduce the overall cost of production of inorganic chemicals. Increasing environmental consciousness and implementation of stringent regulations influences market players to switch technology shifting and producing environment friendly products.

Inorganic Chemicals Market Outlook – Surge in Demand for Ammonia for Agricultural Application Augmenting Market Growth
Population explosion witnessed over the last five decades has put considerable strain upon the already stretched thin agricultural sector. Moreover, rapid urbanization led to steep fall in farmland which force down the farmer for duel cultivation, characterized by large volumes of fertilizers being used to maintain optimum soil fertility. Nitrogen-based fertilizers are widely used by farmers, as it is easily available, cost-effective, and rather effective in increasing fertility of the soil. This in turn is expected to fuel the inorganic chemicals market during the forecast period. Ammonia is also used for cold storage and food preservation in the food & beverages industry. Moreover, the explosive manufacturing industry uses ammonium nitrate in bomb manufacturing. Asia Pacific is expected to be one of the most lucrative markets of manufacturers of inorganic chemicals, due to strengthening of the economy and strong agricultural base in China, India, and South East Asian countries.
Inorganic Chemicals Market Challenges – Fluctuating Crude Oil Price and Stringent Government Regulations
Fluctuating prices of crude oil and natural gas is expected to significantly dampen growth of inorganic chemicals market. Crude oil and natural gas are the basic building blocks of numerous inorganic chemicals industry. Moreover, the Frank R. Lautenberg Chemical Safety for 21st Century Act upon Toxic Chemicals and Chinese State Environment Protection Administration and General Administration of Custom has enforced strict regulation upon import and export of certain hazardous chemicals and pesticides. These are few challenges for inorganic chemical manufacturing company during the forecast period.
