Green ammonia is a nitrogen-based compound that is produced through a sustainable and environmentally friendly process. It is synthesized using renewable energy sources, such as wind or solar power, in a process called electrolysis, unlike conventional ammonia production, which relies heavily on fossil fuels and emits significant greenhouse gases. As it assists in reducing the dependence on fossil fuels, the demand for green ammonia is rising across the globe.

At present, the increasing employment of green ammonia as a clean fuel for transportation purposes is bolstering the growth of the market. Besides this, the growing demand for green ammonia to produce fertilizers for sustainable agriculture is offering a positive market outlook. In line with this, the rising employment of green ammonia, as it can serve as an efficient and scalable energy storage solution, is propelling the market growth. Apart from this, innovations in green ammonia production technologies to make it more cost-effective and scalable around the world are contributing to the market growth. Furthermore, the rising adoption of sustainable alternatives to traditional refrigerants like hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) due to its lower environmental impact and regulatory restrictions on HFCs is strengthening the market growth. Moreover, the increasing utilization of heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) appliances among individuals is offering lucrative growth opportunities to industry investors.

Green Ammonia Market Trends/Drivers:

Growing demand for sustainable alternatives

The increasing environmental awareness and concerns among the masses across the globe are contributing to the growth of the market. People are increasingly becoming aware about the adverse effects of climate change and the depletion of natural resources. In addition, they are preferring sustainable alternatives that benefit in reducing carbon footprint in the environment. Apart from this, traditional ammonia production methods heavily rely on fossil fuels and emit significant greenhouse gases (GHGs), contributing to climate change. On the other hand, green ammonia production uses renewable energy sources, significantly reducing its carbon footprint. As a result, it is increasingly seen as a vital component of a greener and more sustainable future.

Increasing preference for renewable energy sources

The utilization of renewable energy sources into the green ammonia production process is bolstering the market growth. In addition, there is a rise in the preference for clean energy, such as wind and solar power. These intermittent energy sources can produce surplus electricity during favorable conditions. Besides this, the ammonia production facilities can utilize this surplus energy, especially through a process called electrolysis, where water is split into hydrogen and oxygen. Moreover, this green hydrogen can then be used to produce ammonia. This synergy between renewable energy and ammonia production not only reduces the carbon footprint but also enhances the economic viability of renewable energy projects, which is offering a positive market outlook.

Stringent government policies to address climate change

Governing agencies of several countries are implementing stringent policies to curb environmental pollution, which is positively influencing the market. They are also offering numerous financial incentives, tax credits, grants, and subsidies for renewable energy projects and green ammonia facilities. In line with this, they are recognizing the urgency of addressing climate change to maintain sustainability. Apart from this, carbon pricing mechanisms and emissions reduction targets are encouraging industries to transition to greener ammonia production methods. Moreover, international agreements also assist in reducing carbon emissions and prompting nations to explore sustainable ammonia alternatives, which is strengthening the growth of the market.

Green Ammonia Industry Segmentation:

IMARC Group provides an analysis of the key trends in each segment of the market, along with forecasts at the global, regional and country levels from 2024-2032. Our report has categorized the market based on technology and end user. 

Breakup by Technology:

  • Proton Exchange Membrane
  • Alkaline Water Electrolysis 
  • Solid Oxide Electrolysis

Alkaline water electrolysis accounts for the majority of the market share

The report has provided a detailed breakup and analysis of the market based on the technology. This includes proton exchange membrane, alkaline water electrolysis, and solid oxide electrolysis. According to the report, alkaline water electrolysis represented the largest segment.

Alkaline water electrolysis (AWE) is a technology used in the production of green ammonia. This method involves the splitting of water (H2O) into hydrogen (H2) and oxygen (O2) using an electrolyzer. In AWE, an alkaline electrolyte, typically potassium hydroxide (KOH), is used to facilitate the electrolysis process. When an electric current is applied to the electrolyzer, water molecules at the cathode are reduced to form hydrogen gas, while oxygen gas is generated at the anode. The produced hydrogen gas is then combined with nitrogen in a separate step to synthesize ammonia (NH3). AWE is widely adopted due to its enhanced technology, reliability, and lower capital costs as compared to other electrolysis methods.

Breakup by End User:

  • Power Generation
  • Transportation
  • Fertilizer
  • Refrigeration
  • Others

Transportation holds the largest share in the industry

A detailed breakup and analysis of the market based on the end user has also been provided in the report. This includes power generation, transportation, fertilizer, refrigeration, and others. According to the report, transportation accounted for the largest market share.

Green ammonia is rapidly gaining popularity as a sustainable energy carrier in the transportation sector. It holds promise as a clean and efficient alternative to traditional fossil fuels, particularly in heavy-duty and long-haul applications where electrification is challenging. In the marine sector, it can be used in ammonia-powered engines or as a source of hydrogen for fuel cells to propel ships while significantly reducing greenhouse gas emissions. In addition, it has high energy density and lower carbon emissions, which makes it an attractive option for reducing the environmental impact of air travel. On the other hand, it can be converted into hydrogen and used in fuel cells to power trains and trucks, providing a cleaner and more sustainable mode of transportation for goods and passengers.
