It is projected to reach 278.33 Million tons, by 2021, at a CAGR of 2.20% by volume. This growth is attributed to the increase in the production of nutrient rich food crops which extensively use fertilizers, the largest application of sulfuric acid and sustainable and steady demands for sulfuric acid due to its diversified applications.
Elemental Sulfur: The largest market of sulfuric acid, by raw material
Elemental sulfur is the largest market in the global sulfuric acid market, by raw material followed by base metal smelters. The demand for elemental sulfur is driven due to its effective and substantial usage in production of sulfuric acid which is key chemical used in variety of applications.
Elemental sulfur is quite oversupplied in the market which rules out the possibility of its deficiency as a key raw material for the production of sulfuric acid. Therefore, the demand for elemental sulfur is estimated to be high in the near future.
Fertilizers: The largest application market for sulfuric acid
Fertilizers are currently the largest application of sulfuric acid. Sulfuric acid is largely used in manufacturing of phosphate fertilizers which are extensively used in modern day agricultural practices.
Steady gains in agricultural spending and growing chemical industries in countries like India and China is expected to drive the sulfuric acid market.
Asia Pacific: The largest market for sulfuric acid
The Asia Pacific region was the largest market for sulfuric acid, in terms of value and volume, in 2015. The large market size of Asia-Pacific is due to shifting of manufacturing facilities by big market player from mature market like Europe and North America to Asia pacific and Middle East & African region.
The big players prefer investing in these regions because they offer wide range of market penetration opportunities due to the presence of natural resources reserves like mineral deposits and crude oil and abundant availability of workforce and consumers.
