Sulfur Market Overview:
“The Sulfur Market size is expected to be worth around US$ xx Billion by 2021 from US$ X.xx million in 2031, growing at a CAGR of X.x% during the forecast period 2021 to 2031.”
Sulfur is a yellow-colored solid, which is insoluble in water, and has represented by its chemical symbol “S”. It usually exists in a solid state at 20 ̊C.
It is a poor conductor of heat and electricity since it is non-metal. Two important crystalline forms of sulfur are rhombic or octahedral (α-sulfur), and monoclinic sulfur (β-sulfur). It is one of the most widely used chemicals worldwide.
Sulfur is primarily produced as a byproduct of petroleum as well as natural gas. Sulfur is majorly used in the vulcanization of black rubber. The elemental form of sulfur is used in the production of black gunpowder, match sticks, insecticides, and fungicides.
Around 90% of sulfur extracted, is used to produce sulfur dioxide, which is then converted to sulfuric acid. The majority of the acid is used in the production of phosphate fertilizers, which is an essential component in the provision of food.
Sulfur, being economical, is broadly consumed in the production of fertilizers such as calcium sulfate, which is well-known fertilizer for preventing nutrient runoff as well as soil erosion.
The growing adoption of sulfur in the agriculture industry as an important chemical is a major factor driving the growth of the global sulfur market currently.
In addition, rising demand for sulfur-based chemicals in various end-use industries such as chemicals, rubber industry, and pharmaceuticals, is another major factor expected to boost the growth of the global sulfur market over the forecast period.
However, the extraction of sulfur from the mining process is very costly, which is anticipated to hamper the growth of the global market. Also, harmful effects of sulfur on human health, such as problems associated with the nose and throat are projected to limit the growth of the global market.
Currently, the market in the Asia Pacific is expected to witness rapid growth in terms of revenue in the global sulfur market, owing to the growing demand for sulfur-based fertilizers, in the region.
It is further projected to register a CAGR of X.X% during the forecast period. China is one of the largest producers of sulfur, worldwide.
China is the world's leading producer of pyrites, with about 57% of its sulfur in all forms. Also, energy production in China has been increasing in recent decades across the oil & gas sector, leading to a boost in sulfur recovery.
Furthermore, fertilizer production consumes about two-thirds of the sulfuric acid used in China.
