Stay updated with the latest Ammonium Carbonate prices, historical data, and tailored regional analysis


The ammonium carbonate market prices were majorly influenced by the price trend of its feedstock ammonia in the Asian market during the first quarter of the year 2024. Inventories were already overflowing and were sufficiently capable of supporting the existing downstream demands. This situation kept the suppliers’ excitement dull during this time, especially at the beginning of the first quarter.

Ammonium carbonate prices dipped at first in January as the supplies exceeded demands by great margins. However, the various issues in transportation unfolding globally with Houthi attacks in the Red Sea and wars in Europe and the Middle East trampled the global supply chains. Oil prices saw a striking rise in the international market. This, in turn, pushed the inflation up for almost all commodities. The Asian ammonium carbonate prices, too, saw a slight pump because of this, albeit the movement in the price graph was still very confined.


The ammonium carbonate price situation was not much different in the European markets as well since the domestic consumption here was even more subdued. The price trend began on a very weak and feeble note at the beginning of the first quarter in January as the tepid consumption kept pushing the price trend downwards.

The Ukrainian attacks on Russian oil refineries trampled the region’s energy infrastructure, which further complicated the upstream situation for the region. Overall, a varying price trend was witnessed for ammonium carbonate during the first quarter of 2023.

North America

The ammonium carbonate price trend in the American markets was very similar to that of the Asian market. The overall performance was relatively steady and meek as the end user consumption was weak from the very beginning of the said period. The rise in production costs did provide some forward push to the prices; however, the forward movement in the prices was very marginal.

The various geopolitical tensions across different parts of the world were affecting the industrial and trading activities in the USA. The international orders were hanging on the lower side. Overall, mixed market sentiments were observed.

Analyst Insight

According to Procurement Resource, given the current macroeconomic statistics, not a lot of variation is expected in the coming months. The second quarter is also likely to remain dull going forward.

Ammonium Carbonate Price Trend for the October - December of 2023


The strong projection of the cost of feedstock materials helped the ammonium carbonate market to remain stable in the fourth quarter of 2023. The month-on-month fluctuations in the prices were, however, caused by the drop in the demand from the fertilizer industries, but the tight supply of raw materials and quickly dipping inventory levels helped the traders to quote approximately the same number to their consumers.


The European countries also faced similar challenges as the Asian countries as the ammonium carbonate price trend here, too, struggled to maintain their momentum. During the course of the fourth quarter, the fertilizer industries gave mixed signals and did not move in a positive direction as the planting season was still some months away. Moreover, the food industry also showcased some mixed signals regarding the demand for ammonium carbonate, whose effect was evident in the trajectory of its prices.

North America

The North American manufacturing sector suffered from a double-digit decline in the cost of crude oil and natural gas. Further, the downstream industries also depicted only slower rates of revival after the troublesome last few quarters. However, the cost of raw materials rose in view of restricted supply and consistent demand, which is expected to showcase its effect in the forthcoming quarters only.

Analyst Insight

According to Procurement Resource, the Ammonium Carbonate prices will be based on the performance of the fertilizers sector and fluctuations in the crude oil sector.

Ammonium Carbonate Price Trend for the July - September of 2023


The market of ammonium carbonate experienced an inclining trajectory on the back of the positive momentum of prices shown by the ammonia and carbon dioxide prices, which serve as the feedstock of this compound.

The outlook of downstream industries such as food and beverages, packaging, and fertilizers supported the northward movement of the ammonium carbonate graph. The traders took this as an opportunity to increase their profits, and thus, the price trend of ammonium carbonate inclined.


In European countries, the escalation in the prices of ammonium carbonate is attributed to the demand from the agriculture sector and the depleting level of inventories. Further, the supply chains also suffered from disruptions in the pipelines, which further degraded the rate of influx of ammonium carbonate in the region. In addition to this, the growth trajectory adopted by the gas and fuel prices also supported the upward trend of ammonium carbonate prices.

North America

With minute fluctuations during the initial phase of the third quarter, the price trend of ammonium carbonate remained stable throughout the quarter. Due to excessive droughts and lower water levels in the region, the supply of ammonium carbonate got constricted while its demand rose by several folds. During the end phase of the quarter, the manufacturers looked forward to increasing their production capacities and thus contributed to the positive momentum of ammonium carbonate price trend.

Analyst Insight

According to Procurement Resource, the price trend of Ammonium carbonate is expected to retain a positive momentum with the help of the inclining cost of raw materials.

Ammonium Carbonate Price Trend for First Half of 2023

Ammonium carbonate is an unstable salt of ammonia that degrades easily to ammonia and carbon dioxide, even in the presence of slightly elevated temperatures. It is widely used in the agriculture sector as a source of ammonia in fertilizers.

The production of this salt is also simple as it is obtained by an elementary reaction of ammonia and carbon dioxide, which serves as feedstock materials for its synthesis and, thus, influences its price trend heavily.

The prices of ammonia slumped globally in the first two quarters of 2023 due to poor demand and a decline in the interest of consumers in the fertilizers segment. The downstream industries thus failed to support the ammonia market, and as a result, the price trend of ammonium carbonate slumped.

This low procurement from the fertilizers segment is due to high fluctuations in agricultural activities, a direct consequence of abrupt monsoon season and overall weather activities globally. The economic activities globally also struggled with the failure of two major US banks that further declined the purchasing potential of buyers.

Analyst Insight

According to procurement resources, the price trend of Ammonium Carbonate is expected to show oscillations globally as the demand from fertilizers sectors is expected to remain low amid the sliding global economic conditions.

About Ammonium Carbonate

Ammonium carbonate is a crystalline white powder with a pungent smell that readily decomposes to ammonia, carbon dioxide, and water. It is a popular leavening agent employed in baking industries and thus is also known as baker’s ammonia. It has been traditionally employed in baked goods for its ability to produce carbon dioxide gas, contributing to the rise and texture of certain recipes.
