Sulfuric Acid Market

Market Insight

Sulfuric acid is used in the production of many chemicals such as hydrochloric acid, nitric acid, and sulfate salts. Commercially, there are three processes of sulfuric acid production: sulfur-based, pyrite-based, and smelter-based. Sulfuric acid is one of the most important industrial chemicals and is used for various applications including fertilizers, chemical production, and metal processing. Sulfuric acid finds the largest application in the fertilizer industry for the production of phosphoric acid through the wet-process. The market is expected to benefit from the increase in sulfuric acid production as a by-product of smelters. This helps smelters to find a use for their disposals. This has also led to a decline in the market share of sulfur-burning plants.


The global sulfuric acid market is expected to grow on the demand coming from the industries of fertilizers, and chemical production. Sulfuric acid is also used in the manufacturing of chemicals, pigments, dyes, nitric acid, and sulfate salts. Sulfuric acid is used for pickling in metal processing such as steel processing. It helps in removing impurities and rust from the surface. The increase in the demand for metal processing due to an increase in impurity levels is driving the demand for sulfuric acid. However, sulfuric acid is facing competition from hydrochloric acid for metal processing. Though hydrochloric acid is expensive, it is gaining market attention. Hydrochloric acid minimizes the base metal loss and gives faster results during pickling.


In terms of region, Asia Pacific is the largest and the fastest-growing geographical segment for sulfuric acid, and the largest metal-producing region, globally. It is also one of the major agriculture markets. There is an increase in the food demand from the increasing population especially in developing countries such as India and China. Also, China is one of the largest producers of chemicals, globally. All these factors have led to the requirement for increased yields thus, driving the demand for fertilizers. This translates into the demand for sulfuric acid for manufacturing fertilizers.
