India: Towards urea self-reliance

New urea capacity of around 6.35m tonnes is due to come on stream in India under the New Investment Policy (NIP) set out in 2012. The country is to stop urea imports by March 2021, down from current levels of 6m tonnes/year, as new domestic manufacturing capacity comes on stream.

Urea Fertilizers Snapshot

Urea, N-P-K composition 46-0-0, is the most commonly produced and widely traded nitrogen product. It is estimated that 90 percent is used as fertilizer and the rest for industrial purposes. Synthesized from ammonia and carbon dioxide (CO2), urea is the only primary nitrogen product chemically classified as organic (because of its carbon content). Nitrogen is the most crucial and major nutrient element in plant growth. It is abundant in nature and enhances better yields.  Because urea is produced from ammonia and carbon dioxide, which is a by-product of ammonia production, all urea plants are located adjacent to or in proximity to an ammonia plant.

China and India account for more than a half of urea output (as well as capacity), however, these two countries are the largest urea consumers, over half of it. In 2013, 44 percent of the urea fertilizer was consumed in East Asia, followed by South Asia, which took nearly a quarter of the product.

China and India account for more than a half of urea output (as well as capacity), however, these two countries are the largest urea consumers, over half of it. In 1912, more than forty percent of the urea fertilizer was consumed in East Asia, followed by South Asia, which took nearly a quarter of the product.

N0

Because of its high nitrogen content (46%), urea is the most popular form of solid nitrogen fertilizer, particularly in the developing regions of the world, and is traded widely in the international market. More than 40% of all food grown in the world is fertilized by urea. Growing faster than dry nitrogen-containing fertilizers, nitrogen solutions are mostly used in the United States and Western Europe.

N Cons

China is the largest consumer and producer of nitrogenous fertilizers, it is the main factor shaping the nitrogen market. Global nitrogen demand has strengthened significantly during the second half of 2012 and into 2013, balancing the strong increase in supply from China.

N2

Nitrogen products are manufactured from anhydrous ammonia, which is most commonly synthesized from natural gas, steam and air.
