Global Nitrification Inhibitors Market is segmented By Product( Nitrapyrin, Dicyandiamide (DCD), DMPP, Others)By Crops( Cereals, Millets & Oilseeds, Cotton, Fruits & Vegetables, Plantation Crops, Pulses), and by Region (North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East, and Africa) – Share, Size, Outlook, and Opportunity Analysis, 2019-2026


Market Overview

The Global nitrification Inhibitors Market is expected to grow at a high CAGR during the forecasting period (2019-2026).

Nitrification inhibitors are chemical compounds that are used to reduce the nitrification of ammonia, ammonium-containing, and urea-containing fertilizers.

These inhibitors help to reduce the losses of nitrogen in the soil which would otherwise be consumed by crops. Nitrification inhibitors are used widely, being added to approximately 50% of the fall-applied anhydrous ammonia in states in the U.S., like Illinois.

They are usually effective in increasing the recovery of nitrogen fertilizer in row crops, but the level of effectiveness depends on external conditions and their benefits are most likely to be seen at less than optimal nitrogen rates.


Market Drivers

The increasing concern of the negative impacts associated with the release of reactive nitrogen from highly fertilized agro-ecosystems is driving the global Nitrification inhibitors market.According to the IPCC, around 1% (but potentially as much as 5%) of ammonia is converted to nitrous oxide. An increase of ammonia release from fertilizers and manures of 65% could, therefore, have important implications for nitrous oxide emissions. Additionally, increasing adoption of nitrogen stabilizers would propel the growth of global Nitrification Inhibitors Market within the forecast period.


Market Restraints

Nitrification inhibitors show great potential to reduce nitrous oxide emissions, but their effectiveness is not consistent across different soils, crops, and climates.Information on the efficacy and the ability of the inhibitors to decrease nitrous oxide production under Australian conditions is also minimal. The unproven effectiveness of nitrification inhibitors might hamper the market growth.

Industry Analysis

By Type

Global nitrification inhibitors market is segmented by the type as Nitrapyrin, Dicyandiamide (DCD), DMPP, and Others.

DCD and DMPP were equally effective in altering soil inorganic Nitrogen content at field scale for their confidence intervals overlapping each other. On average, DCD and DMPP application increased soil NH4+-N by 25.3% and 41.1% and decreased soil NO3−-N content by 17.0% and 20.7%, respectively. DCD and DMPP applications showed that they could reduce gaseous emission from the soil, including NH3, N2O, NO, CH4, CO2. DCD and DMPP both significantly decreased soil N2O emission by 44.7% and 47.6%, respectively.

Geographical Share

By geography, nitrification inhibitors market is segmented as North America, South America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and Rest of the World. Nitrapyrin and DCD have current widespread use in North American agriculture. In the U.S., products that contain DCD include Guardian® DF, Guardian-DL 31-0-0, Guardian-LP 15-0-0, Agrotain® Plus, and Super U®. Guardian-DF and Guardian-DL are intended for application with Nitrogen solutions or liquid manure. Also, Guardian DF can be impregnated on dry Nitrogen fertilizers. Agrotain Plus contains a urease inhibitor as well as the DCD nitrification inhibitor and will be discussed in a later section.

Eco-N and DCn are two nitrification inhibitors on the New Zealand market. Their active ingredient is dicyandiamide (DCD). These products are seen as being important in reducing the impact of nitrogen losses on the environment, and there has been considerable investment in researching on-farm use. New Zealand showed that DCD applied to graze pastures reduced nitrate leaching from urine patches by 59% and nitrous oxide emissions by 82%, as well as increasing herbage production by 30%.

Key Manufacturers

The Global Nitrification Inhibitors market is moderately consolidated. The new product innovation and product launches are critical strategies adopted by major manufacturers to improve their market presence and geographic reach.In January 2018, Koch Agronomic Services have introduced two new products, Centuro nitrification inhibitor, and Anvil urease inhibitor. This nitrification inhibitor will help reduce nitrogen loss.In October 2017, Solvay’s AgRho® NH4 Protect, an innovative nitrification inhibitor solution, has been granted authorization for sale in France by The National Agency for Health, Food, Environment and Work Safety (ANSES).In May 2017, Eco Agro Resources announces the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office has allowed three patents – application numbers 14/553,107, 14/689,470, and 13/890,082. These patents protect hundreds of possible combinations of active ingredients used to stabilize fertilizer, such as NBPT, DMPP, DCD, Nitrapyrin and multiple solvent options.
