has a high sulfur content in the sulfate form which occurs naturally in volcanic fumaroles as a rare mineral, mascagnite. It is in an organic salt which is prepared by treatment of ammonia along with sulphuric acid as a by-product from coke-ovens. It is also prepared by treatment of ammonium carbonate with gypsum to give calcium carbonate in precipitated form leaving ammonium sulphate in solution form. Ammonium sulphate is used in wide range of applications such as fertilizers for alkaline soils, purifying protein, flame retardants, food additives, and for the preparation of ammonium salts such as ammonium persulfate. It is also amongst the most widely used nitrogen fertilizers used globally to enhance crop yields in various agricultural applications. Apart from this ammonium sulphate is also used in pharmaceutical applications, industrial chemicals and production of cattle feed supplements.
Globally demand for ammonium sulphate market
is driven by factors such as increasing consumption of nitrogen based fertilizers globally to increase crop yields and increasing usage of ammonium sulphate in the food and beverage industr.
