Format: Online | Last Updated: Dec 2021

[Online Quarterly Update] Green Ammonia Market is expected to witness considerable growth by reaching 18 million tonnes in 2035 and grow at an impressive CAGR of 20% during the forecast period until 2035. Ammonia is the second-most-widely produced commodity chemical around the globe and is mostly utilized as a fertilizer in the agriculture industry, a sector that is under increasing scrutiny due to its environmental impact. The production of Green Ammonia is gaining prominence due to growing demand for making process 100% renewable and carbon-free. Ammonia could come to the rescue by easily capturing, storing, and transporting Hydrogen for use in emission-free fuel cells and turbines. Efforts are also undergoing to combust Ammonia directly in power plants and ship engines. Several chemical companies are developing Green Ammonia, a route to Ammonia in which Hydrogen derived from water electrolysis powered by alternative energy replaces hydrocarbon-based Hydrogen, making the production of Ammonia virtually carbon dioxide–free. The Haber-Bosch process is a widely used method to produce Ammonia on a commercial scale which can be extracted again via a thermal decomposition and separation process. In addition to the main use of Ammonia in the fertilizer industry, Green Ammonia holds the potential to play a role in other end-use applications. 
On the basis of technology, the Green Ammonia market is segmented into Alkaline Electrolysis (AE), Proton Exchange Membrane (PEM), and Solid Oxide Electrolysis (SOE). SOE technology is anticipated to dominate the Green Ammonia market owing to the increased demand for Hydrogen systems to cut carbon emissions. The process of Solid Oxide Electrolysis utilizes electricity generated from renewable sources to produce Green Hydrogen, which can be further synthesized in the Ammonia synthesis plant to produce Green Ammonia.
Depending upon various end-uses, the market is segmented into fertilizer, industrial power generation, transportation, and others. Ammonia is widely utilized in the agriculture industry as fertilizers; however, the power generation segment is expected to dominate the market in the next few years. The demand for Green Ammonia as a sustainable fuel is rapidly increasing, which will provide a positive outlook to the Green Ammonia market in the upcoming years. Consistently rising demand for Green Ammonia as a maritime fuel demonstrates vast opportunities for the future. 
The major factor that could hinder the market growth is the high investments and low awareness among the chemical producers. The cost of Green Ammonia plants is higher than the natural gas Ammonia plants, which can hinder the growth of the market through 2035. 
There are several government-supported projects; for example, the Norwegian fertilizer producer Yara intends to install electrolyzers to produce 3,500 tonnes per year of green Ammonia at its plant in Pilbara, Australia. In the US, CF Industries is launching its first big Green Ammonia project, in which the company will spend USD100 million to convert 20,000 tonnes per year of conventional Ammonia at its flagship plant in Donaldsonville, Louisiana, to green by installing electrolyzers. 
In 2020, due to the spread of COVID-19, the Green Ammonia market witnessed a negative impact across the globe. The imposition of strict restrictions and nationwide lockdowns by the government authorities in order to curb the spread of deadly viruses severely impacted the downstream industries. The global supply chain was severely affected; however, the demand for fertilizers from the agriculture industry remained bullish during the covid times. As the market is gradually reopening, the demand for Green Ammonia is expected to boost in the near term owing to the rising demand from the shipping industry. 
Among different regions, Europe, followed by the Middle East, Africa, and North America, is expected to dominate the Green Ammonia market across the globe in the forecast period due to the increasing number of investments and projects in the regions. Initiatives to produce Green Hydrogen is likely to augment the demand for Green Ammonia across the MEA and Europe, which will further boost its market in the upcoming years. 
Major players operating in the Green Ammonia market include Siemens, BASF, thyssenkrupp, Nel Hydrogen, MAN Energy Solutions, Electrochaea, Green Hydrogen Systems, Hydrogenics, ITM Power, Uniper, Yara International, Queensland Nitrate Pty Ltd., Enapter, Hiringa Energy, ENGIE, Haldor Topso, and others.
