Global Sulfuric Acid Market: Overview
Global Sulfuric Acid market is projected to grow with a significant growth rate during the forecast period owing to the growing production of nutrient dense food crops, increasing use in metal processing and rising demand for sulfur-based fertilizers. Sulfuric acid is a strong mineral acid denoted by the molecular formula H2SO4. Continuous and stable demand for sulfuric acid due to several end-user applications and rising demand from the oil & gas industry, wastewater treatment are the factors favoring the market growth. Fertilizers are now an integral part of agriculture and provide the soil with nutrients like potassium, phosphate, and nitrogen. Growing concerns about high crop yield and superior food quality from the agricultural sector are anticipated to drive fertilizer market growth, which, in turn, is likely to trigger the sulfuric acid market. The presence of stringent environmental regulations to control emissions expected to lead the increased use of smelters to capture sulfur dioxide products sulfuric acid serves as an electrolyte in lead-acid storage batteries, which are employed in motor vehicles. It is also used in the pulp and paper industry, often for use in chlorine dioxide generation.
Global Sulfuric Acid Market: Raw Material Insights
On the basis of raw material, the sulfuric acid market is segmented into Elemental Sulfur, Base Metal Smelters, Pyrite Ore, and Others. Elemental Sulfur raw material segment dominates the entire sulfuric acid market and projected to lead the market during the forecast period. Due to the abundant availability in the market and less polluting as compared to other raw material like pyrite ore or base metal smelters. The growing demand for industrial chemicals for manufacturing various commercial products is projected to propel the growth of the market over the next few years. China is the leading producer of pyrites and the maximum share of this raw material is used for producing sulfuric acid.
Global Sulfuric Acid Market: Application Insights
On the basis of application, the sulfuric acid market is segmented into Fertilizers, Chemical Manufacturing, Metal Processing, Petroleum Refining, Textile Industry, Automotive, Pulp & Paper, and Others. In 2017, the fertilizer application leads the overall sulfuric acid during the forecast period. Rising concerns about high crop yield and excellent food quality from the agricultural sector are projected to propel fertilizer market growth. Rapid industrialization and development are resulting in the reduction of fertile land, which in turn is leading the farmers to use fertilizers for increasing crop yield. Additionally, growing construction of new sulfur burners in countries like Cuba, Morocco, Turkey, etc., is further estimated to address the growing demand for sulfuric acid in fertilizer production and metal processing industries in the coming years.
Global Sulfuric Acid Market: Regional Insights
Geographically, the sulfuric acid market is analyzed across North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East & Africa, and Latin America. The Asia Pacific is the leading region of the sulfuric acid industry and projected to lead the overall industry during the forecast period. In 2016, China is the largest market for sulfuric acid in this region. The booming chemical industry, easy availability of raw materials, and growing developmental strategies like setting up of production facilities to meet the mounting demand for sulfuric acid. Growing need to expand the production of phosphate fertilizer due to increasing fertilizer sector and stringent environmental regulations concerning the manufacturing of the environmentally friendly product is likely to boost the market over the coming years. Middle East & Africa is the fastest growing region during the forecast period. Owing to an increase in the number of acid plants to meet growing consumer demand along with the rising supply of sulfur-burnt acids in the region is estimated to boost the market.
