Global Nitrogen Quarterly:
Supply & Demand, Production Costs and Price Forecasts

From current details on regional supply and demand to production cash cost analysis and price outlooks, it’s the detailed global fertilizer market data you need for strategic planning, competitor assessment, and market forecasting.

Your detailed monitor of the forces shaping global nitrogen prices, this research delivers informed analysis, estimates and forecasts of the global nitrogen fertilizer market that you won’t find anywhere else.

Each purchase of the Global Nitrogen Quarterly gives you enterprise access to one full year of intelligence (four reports), including the following elements:

1. Global Nitrogen Fertilizer Price Forecasts

Trusted price forecasts for nitrogen fertilizers in key global regions details the likely pricing scenarios in 1-6 month, 1-5 year and 10 year increments for:

  • Granular urea: U.S. Gulf NOLA, Middle East, Indonesia, China
  • Prilled urea: U.S. Gulf NOLA, Middle East, Black Sea, China
  • Ammonia: Tampa CFR, Middle East, Black Sea, India CFR
  • UAN: U.S. Gulf NOLA, Black Sea, Baltic, France

2. Global Nitrogen Fertilizer Capacities and Inventory

A comprehensive database (in Excel® format) detailing nitrogen fertilizer production capacity at the regional, country and site level. This data is then modeled to create a variety of aggregations and forecasts of the global supply and demand balance by country over a 10-year time horizon including:

  • Global Producer Output — details on production capacity at the individual factory/site and production volumes at the country level. View the list of over 1,000 nitrogen producers covered in this analysis on a quarterly basis.
  • World Capacity Overview — global capacity forecasts for ammonia, urea, ammonium nitrate, and UAN.
  • Regional Nitrogen Fertilizer Capacities — for Americas and Europe, Africa, Asia/Australia, and China.
  • Operational Capability — a look at global production levels in recent history vs. nameplate capacities and implied consumption.

3. Nitrogen Fertilizer Supply & Demand

This transparent interactive model includes easy-to-use forecasting algorithms that allow you to customize production scenarios which in turn change the supply/demand balance projections across the forecast period.

Analysis in this section also includes:

  • Global Nitrogen Fertilizer Supply & Demand— a global overview of projected nitrogen capacity vs. Green Markets’ estimated demand curve
  • North America Scenario — an in-depth look at all significant North American nitrogen projects, with an examination of how different levels of greenfield project completions affect the supply/demand balance
  • Global Nitrogen Fertilizer Demand — analysis of fertilizer demand on a 5-year outlook developed from linear regression models tied to Bloomberg Global GDP forecasts and World Harvested Land
  • Nitrogen Fertilizer Import-Export Status — analysis of country level demand and import/export scenarios for major fertilizer producing and consuming nations for both urea and ammonia

4. Ammonia and Urea Production Cash Cost Curves

Analysis on the variability of marginal costs of production of urea across major geographical global regions. Marginal costs are then analyzed against prevailing market pricing and trade flows to provide clear direction on future pricing patterns.

  • Production Cash Cost Analysis — comparison of the marginal cost basis at the country  level

5. Nitrogen Fertilizer Market Overview and Outlook

Overview and outlook of the macro forces shaping nitrogen fertilizer markets across the globe: from supply/demand shifts to geopolitical, agronomic and economic factors, this research analyzes all the factors impacting the nitrogen nutrient marketplace.

  • Nitrogen Outlook — forecasts for the global Nitrogen market, with a focus on urea and ammonia
  • Natural Gas — analysis of the North America natural gas market and the area as a low-cost producing region against the global backdrop
  • Historical Price Snapshot — historical urea pricing vs. farm incomes, and corn prices

6. Global Trade Data

Historical imports and exports by country, by product. Updated quarterly to include the most recent traded volumes for countries and products such as, Chinese urea exports, Trinidad ammonia exports and more.
