Nitrogen is one of the most essential elements for plant growth. Nitrogen-based fertilizers are fragmented in terms of chemistry which means that there is more than just nitric acid added to the fertilizer. The application of nitrogenous fertilizer to crop plants usually shows better and faster growth, thus leading to high productivity and yield.

There is a high demand of nitrogen at the root initiation stage of planting crops. The application of nitrogenous fertilizers to crop plants shows a better color and texture of the produce. A deficiency of nitrogen in plants results in a slower growth rate and lack of color and texture. The incidence of diseases and pest attacks are usually seen in such types of crops. Due to all these reasons, nitrogenous fertilizer play a key role for the plant's health. The major nitrogenous fertilizers for plants are urea, ammonium nitrate, ammonium sulfate, calcium ammonium nitrate, and ammonia.

Extensive investments are made in research and development to come up with advanced products, so that the maximum market share can be occupied by introducing new and improved products to meet customers' demands. Yara International ASA (Norway), Agrium Inc., (Canada), Coromandel International Ltd. (India), Potash Corp. of Saskatchewan (Canada), KOCH Industries Inc.(U.S.), CVR Partners, L.P.(U.S.), Snifter Holdings Ltd. (China), Bunge Ltd. (U.S.), CF Industries Holdings Inc. (U.S.), and Euro hem (Russia) are key players in the nitrogenous fertilizer industry; their recent development strategies were studied. 

In 2012, the global consumption market was led by urea, both in terms of volume and value. The global nitrogenous fertilizer market by type was valued at $98,627.9 million in 2012. The ammonium nitrate fertilizer market is estimated to grow at the fastest CAGR through 2018. The U.S. is a key market in the North American region for nitrogenous fertilizers.
