Ammonium Thiosulfate Market Set to Surge: Projected Growth to Reach US$ 719.6 million by 2033

Ammonium Thiosulfate

The ammonium thiosulfate market was expected to be worth close to US$ 345.4 million in 2022. By 2033, the same market is anticipated to have generated US$ 719.6 million, with a CAGR of 6.9% from 2023 to 2033. Ammonium thiosulfate inhibits growth at a high agronomic rate of 250–5000 mg/kg soil, increasing the soil’s fertility. It reduces nitrification, the process by which ammonium is transformed into nitrate, which might lessen nitrate loss to the atmosphere and water.

The product yields rise by 9% to 11% whenever ammonium thiosulfate is applied to the soil, and the soil’s effectiveness is increased. According to the United Nations’ demographic agreement, the world’s population will expand by 40% to 9.15 billion people in 2050, necessitating a 70% increase in global food production. The need for nitrogen as well as phosphate-based fertilizers is anticipated to increase due to the rising demand for agricultural production worldwide. It is anticipated that there will be a large rise in demand for ammonium thiosulfate due to the growing need for additional nutrients within the soil.
