ARGUS Strategy Report: Ammonium Sulphate

Our brand-new strategy report focuses on ammonium sulphate — also referred to in the industry as amsul and AS — a commodity fertilizer used as a source of nitrogen and sulphur for crops (21N+24S).

With growing agronomic demand for ‘sulphur as a nutrient’, ammonium sulphate has a key place in this delivery, whether it is directly applied, blended or used as a feedstock in the production of more advanced N+S products or NPK+S.

Produced by the relatively simple reaction between common chemicals ammonia and sulphuric acid, ammonium sulphate emerges as a by-product of a wide variety of industrial processes — including caprolactam, coke-oven gas, flue-gas desulphurisation and many more — all of which are explored in this report, as are potential sources of supply.

Key market trends analysed

  • The impact of current and future growth in Chinese caprolactam capacity
  • Outlook for the premium for large-diameter product, for example large crystals
  • Conversion of ammonium phosphate plants to synthetic ammonium sulphate
  • Environmental and sustainability issues, including the circular economy, carbon footprints and EU legislation
