However, ammonium nitrate is moderately hazardous material with a critical relative humidity of 59.4%, which can cause it to turn into a solid mass or liquefy. Hence, strict regulations have been implemented by Occupational Health and Safety (OSHA), Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms (ATF) to control its transportation, storage, handling, and usage.

Ammonium nitrate is a part of ANFO, an industrial explosive widely used in North America, accounting for 80% of the explosives used in this region. Due to the potential of its misuse, some countries are prohibiting its usage in consumer applications. The use of cheaper substitutes such as urea in fertilizers may also hinder the growth of the market. Nonetheless, the market is expected to grow due to the better nitrogen uptake and lower carbon footprint of ammonium nitrate, compared to urea.

The report categorizes the industry into different segments based on size, share, demand, trends, gross profit, total earnings, and revenue. The market is segmented into High-Density Ammonium Nitrate and Low-Density Ammonium Nitrate based on product type. The fertilizer segment holds a majority of the market share due to its demand in the food supply applications. The US and China are expected to witness the highest amount of growth during the forecast period. The report also profiles the key players in the global ammonium nitrate market, including EuroChem Group AG, CF Industries, Orica, Austin Powder Company, Enaex, and Incitec Pivot Limited, among others.
