Global UAN Market

Global Urea Ammonium Nitrate Market 2016–2021:
U.S. Self-Sufficiency, Trade Flow Shifts, and Inland Premiums

The UAN fertilizer market is undergoing dramatic shifts in production capacities… find out how low prices will go, and when!

Urea Ammonium Nitrate (UAN) prices have been on downward trend since 2012. With new North America capacity coming on-line, U.S. imports will be displaced and the markets will have to contend with excess UAN capacity.

With production concentrated in a small number of manufacturers, can their discipline keep UAN premiums afloat in the face of lower prices across the nitrogen fertilizer complex?

This unique study examines all the relevant dynamics of the global Urea Ammonium Nitrate market, analyzes the timing and impact of increased capacity, and gives UAN pricing guidance in the near, medium and short term.
