Format: Online | Last Updated: May 2021

[Online Quarterly Update] The global Sulphuric Acid demand growing at a CAGR of 4.01% from past few years and anticipated to grow by a healthy CAGR of 3.72 % during the forecast period 2030 as well. Sulphuric Acid is well-known mineral acid and oxidizing agent, commonly produced by contact process method by sulphur dioxide production using sulphur in presence of air across the globe. It is colorless and water-soluble in nature having various applications across chemical, fertilizer and pharmaceutical industry. Of total Sulphuric Acid global production over half of its goes into the production of phosphoric acid which is used by producers to make phosphate fertilizers (e.g., DAP, MAP, APP etc.) used in the agriculture sector owing to its properties which include root & seed development and overall plant maturation. Hence, increasing demand and consumption of food following growing population at high rate across various regions globally would generate the need for fertilizers which is expected to swell up the total demand for Sulphuric Acid globally. 
Also, prevailing life-threatening diseases such as COVID-19 outbreak in 2020 across the globe would further drive the need for more nutritious and higher crop yields. Additionally, government focusing on enlarging pharmaceutical industry through various initiatives following COVID-19 to counter the effect caused by it and revive economy in coming years would also spur the Sulphuric Acid consumption which is used in the formulation of variety of drugs.
However, the decline of year-on-year basis in total Sulphuric Acid demand was noted amid pandemic in 2020 as downstream industries went non-operational such as automotive, paper, metal processing and others which consumes Sulphuric Acid for variety of applications. This decline in the demand curve of Sulphuric Acid is projected to take an upturn in near future as demand for fertilizers rising. Moreover, increasing construction of new sulphur burners in countries such as Cuba, Morocco, Namibia, Turkey, etc., is further anticipated to address growing demand for Sulphuric Acid in fertilizer production and metal processing industries in the coming years.
On the basis of regional segmentation, Asia-Pacific expected to dominate the Sulphuric Acid market backed by increasing population, food consumption and expanding fertilizer and manufacturing industries across these countries. Additionally, some of the leading producers of Sulphuric Acid are in Asia-Pacific. Moreover, China, the fastest growing economy have huge potential for pharma industry which contributes significantly to the overall growth of Sulphuric Acid in the region through the forecast period.
