Global Sulfuric Acid Market Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends & Forecast 2018-2026 -

The "Sulfuric Acid Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends, and Forecast 2018-2026" report has been added to's offering.

Based on application, the global sulfuric acid market has been segmented into fertilizers, chemical synthesis, wastewater treatment, metal & mining, semiconductors, and others (including pulp & paper, pharmaceuticals, and batteries). In terms of volume, the fertilizers segment accounted for more than 60% share of the global sulfuric acid market in 2017. However, the chemical synthesis segment is projected to expand at a rapid pace by 2026. Demand for sulfuric acid from this segment is estimated to increase by 2026 owing to extensive use of the acid for synthesizing other industrial chemicals. Sulfuric acid is used to manufacture dyes, pigments, commodity chemicals, titanium dioxide, and pharmaceuticals. Hence, extensive use of sulfuric acid and rapid industrialization are estimated to drive the global market during the forecast period. Significant growth of the global fertilizers industry is another key factor propelling the demand for sulfuric acid. Sulfuric acid is a major raw material employed in the processing of phosphate fertilizers such as calcium dihydrogenphosphate, diammonium phosphate, and triple superphosphate. Raw materials rich in sulfur content are used to manufacture phosphate fertilizers; therefore, sulfuric acid is preferred in this application. Hence, rise in utilization of fertilizers for agricultural activities in regions such as Latin America, Asia Pacific, and North America is expected to boost the consumption of sulfuric acid by 2026.

In terms of demand, Asia Pacific dominated the global sulfuric acid market in 2017. The market in the region is likely to expand at a rapid pace during the forecast period. Sure in utilization of sulfuric acid to produce fertilizers and in the processing of other industrial chemicals, and increase in government initiatives and collaborations with global manufacturing firms are major factors driving market in the region. Demand for sulfuric acid is low in Europe and North America due to implementation of stringent government regulations in these regions. Rise in mining activities for copper ores is a key driver of the sulfuric acid market in Latin America. Recovery of sulfur from oil & gas refineries in Middle East & Africa is projected to boost the market in the region.
