The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is the rising applications in medical and healthcare sector. Sulfur is widely used in the healthcare and medical sectors as well as therapeutic applications mainly due to its low toxicological profile and promising therapeutic effects. It is the third most available mineral found in human beings by body weight. Various amino-acids which contain sulfur are cystine, methionine, homocysteine, cysteine, homocysteine, and taurine. Nutritional supplements are given to vegans, children, athletes, and HIV patients to mitigate SAA deficiency.

According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is granting subsidies for sale of fertilizers in developing economies. In most of the countries in sub-Saharan Africa and Southeast Asia, the market prices of fertilizers are strictly regulated by implementing the levy of duties and granting subsidies. Agrarian economies like India and Bangladesh are deficient in potash reserves and phosphate rocks and, therefore, import fertilizers or their feedstocks. This often results in huge price disruptions in the market and affects the purchase of fertilizers by farmers. Most of these economies highly rely on the retail price administration of fertilizers and also incentivize fertilizer manufacturers, sometimes to the extent of 50%-60% to ensure affordability to farmers and promote the smooth flow of crop cultivation. This helps the countries achieve food security.
