The Indian Sulphuric Acid Market witnessed notable growth in the last five years and is anticipated to achieve a healthy CAGR of around 6.5% during the forecast period.
Sulphuric Acid is a colorless, highly corrosive diprotic acid finding various applications in the chemical industry due to its extraordinary oxidizing and dehydrating properties. Surge in the consumption of Sulphuric Acid in the the India is augmented by the overall growth of the the the Indian chemical industry wherein it is widely utilized for synthesizing myriad derivatives. Sulphuric Acid is primarily being used as a feedstock for the synthesis of nitrogenous and phosphatic fertilizers against the backdrop of its abundant demand from the fertilizer industry. Besides this, growing consumption for Sulphuric Acid in the water treatment process and metal processing is anticipated to contribute well to propel its demand in the forecast period.
Coronavirus outbreak in the country in the final quarter of FY20 has hindered the sturdy fundamentals of domestic Sulphuric Acid market. Subdued offtakes for downstream derivatives as a repercussion caused by the nationwide lockdown in March overshadowed its slacked production margins disrupted by the forced turnaround in various chemical refineries. Slowed operations in fertilizer industry followed by the temporary turnarounds in some of the major downstream companies negatively affected its growth rate in the final quarter. However, demand fundamentals for Sulphuric Acid is expected to showcase a V-shaped recovery with scheduled capacity additions in its downstream derivatives under the government initiative of self-reliant the the India.
Sulphuric Acid can be produced by either of the smelter or sulphur route. Owing to the extensive demand for Sulphuric acid in the country, more than 90% of Sulphur produced in the domestic market is directed to manufacture Sulphuric Acid. On the back of the high yield and affordability, Double Conversion Double Absorption (DCDA) process technology is presently the widely used process for its production. Single Conversion and Single Absorption (SCSA) process is another popular production method for manufacturing Sulphuric.
There are several organized and unorganized players operating in the the India Sulphuric Acid market, making it highly fragmented in nature.
