Currently, there are three major manufacture methods, including caprolactam byproduct method, synthetic method and coal byproduct method. The first method is most usual. In 2016, caprolactam byproduct produced ammonium sulfate is about 1,552,000 tons. Also, production cost of synthetic method is highest.
As of 2016, the USA ammonium sulfate consumption represents about 2,637,000 tons. Regionally, the Middle West region is the biggest consumption region of Ammonium sulfate in USA. Main part of demand comes from South Dakota, Iowa, Indiana and Illinois. In South area, Arkansas is also a major consumption region of ammonium sulfate, which takes more than 6% of consumption in South region. Comparatively, the production and demand in West region and Northeast region are relatively small.
AdvanSix is the leading company in USA ammonium sulfate industry which supplies products accounts for more than 32.91% of USA market. The following players in this field are Rentech(PCI) and BASF, the production revenue of medium sized players, but still quite fragmented. Though the ammonium sulfate industry is concentrated compared to the general fertilizer solution market, but still quite fragmented. It is the profound supply chain and raw material source that made AdvanSix a leader.
Globally, China is the largest ammonium sulfate production region and export region. In 2016, USA top three import countries are Canada, China and Lithuania. With abundant raw material resource and cheap labor cost, price of ammonium sulfate from China is the lowest, which have a great influence on USA local suppliers. It seems that US government has tried to change this situation. During past five years, ammonium sulfate price decreased from 2012 to 2016 and increased from 2017.
In the future, we predict that USA demand will continue to increase. During 2012 to 2016, CAGR of USA consumption was 3.78%. By 2023, USA consumption will be 3,464,000 tons.
