London, United Kingdom (8th May, 2013) — CRU, an independent commodity industry analysis and management consultant in the global metals, mining, and fertilizer industries, has launched a new report covering the Ammonium Nitrates market.

Compiled by CRU’s team of expert fertilizer consultants, the Ammonium Nitrates Market Outlook offers a comprehensive insight into the market, covering its recent history and forecasting ahead to 2017. To provide subscribers with a clear understanding of all agricultural and industrial applications of ammonium nitrates, the report focuses on three main products: Fertilizer Grade Ammonium Nitrate (FGAN); Calcium Ammonium Nitrate (CAN); Industrial and Explosive Grade AN.

“With rising European and FSU gas prices, EU trade barriers under review, and ammonia and nitric acid production falling under the umbrella of the EU Emissions Trading Scheme, 2013 is set to be a decisive year for the ammonium nitrate market,” said Alistair Wallace, Senior Consultant, Nitrogen.

“With perfect timing, CRU publishes its Ammonium Nitrates Market Outlook report,” said Julie Cunningham of CRU. “There is no other market analysis focused specifically on this industry sector.”

Subscribers to the Market Outlook can expect: to gain an understanding of the latest EU legislation and their impact on European producers; be first to know where new projects are expected to surface; to learn where demand for nitrates is growing the most, and find ways to future-proof their business by understanding what developments are expected. The Outlook is separated into three extensive chapters and appendices, and subscribers will receive a printed copy as well as online access to PDF and Excel versions.
