Sulfuric Acid Market Size, Share, Trends, Growth, Analysis, Research

SULFURIC ACID MARKET: Summary

The Global Sulfuric Acid Market is expected to grow with the CAGR of 3.00% and reach up to USD 13.2 Billion by end of 2027.

Sulfuric acid (H2SO4) alternatively termed as oil of vitriol, is an oily, water soluble monoprotic mineral acid, which is corrosive in nature. It is an important commodity chemical and is prominently used in various industrial and manufacturing operations as an intermediate. Sulfuric acid is synthesized through two main processes: contact process and wet sulfuric acid. Through these processes, different grades such as industrial, analytical, and technical of H2SO4 can be obtained. The H2SO4 is the versatile reagent as it acts as a strong acid, oxidizing agent, and dehydrating agent.

 

SULFURIC ACID MARKET: Drivers & Restraints

Market Drivers:

  • Increasing Demand for Sulfur Based Fertilizers

Sulfuric acid is a key component for the production of the superphosphates and other fertilizers. Most of the sulfuric acid produced globally is used for manufacturing of the fertilizers. Fertilizers are gaining higher importance in the chemical industry owing to its ability to increase the crop yield. The demand for the fertilizer is escalating at a robust pace owing to growing global population creating higher food demand. The ongoing urbanization and industrialization in the emerging economies along with limited availability of the arable land, is estimated to upsurge the demand for fertilizers. Aforementioned factors are expected to fuel the growth of sulfuric acid market.

  • Growing demand for Battery Driven Vehicles

With growing air pollution worldwide due to vehicle emission has resulted into higher awareness regarding preventing environmental degradation. This has resulted in higher adoption of electric vehicles, which use the lead acid or lithium ion batteries. Increasing demand for electric vehicles as it is an ecofriendly alternative to conventional vehicles is a prime driver. With ongoing efforts to minimize the environmental pollution, the demand for the battery driven vehicles is projected to boost the market growth.

Market Restraint:

  • Regulations Associated with the Production of Sulfuric Acid

The sulfuric acid is one of the important mineral acid used for various industrial and analytical operations. However, the toxicity of the sulfuric acid has created numerous problems when exposed through inhalation, skin and eye contact. Hence, limitations have been imposed on the exposed to the sulfuric acid to increase the employee safety. For instance, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) imposed the legal permissible exposure limit for Sulfuric acid to be 1mg per cubic meter. Such regulations due to toxicity of sulfuric acid growth is likely to hinder the market in the coming timespan.
