Insoluble Sulphur is a universally recognized vulcanizing agent used widely in the rubber industry for improving product’s elasticity and strength. Insoluble Sulphur is widely used in high quality rubber components requiring high degree of tack and resistance to fatigue and ageing, particularly in radial tires, belting, cable and wire insulating materials and hoses.

The Insoluble Sulphur market is largely driven by its high demand in the global tire industry. With increasing number of on-road vehicles across the globe, the need for convenience and high maintenance tire replacements has been rising. The tire manufacturers across the globe are under pressure from regulators and consumers to develop more fuel-efficient tires, along with facing technological challenges to get a competitive edge in the highly crowded markets. Competitive pricing offered by automotive manufacturers across the globe has also created a surge in consumer spending on passenger cars in developing economies. Additionally, backed by rising usage of radialized tires in both passenger cars and commercial vehicles would most likely strengthen the role of Insoluble Sulphur across the automotive sector of the world. The content of Insoluble Sulphur is about 1.7 times higher in radial tires as compared to the bias tires. Surging demand for radialized tire with the automotive industry’s strong focus on improving vehicle’s fuel efficiency, better mileage and lightweight characteristics, would further boost the demand for Insoluble Sulphur in the forecast period. In addition to this, with changing consumer preferences and innovation across the global footwear industry, increased role of Insoluble Sulphur in the footwear value chain would further accelerate the market growth in the years to come. Due to these factors clubbed up, the global Insoluble Sulphur market is anticipated to reach approximately 420 thousand tonnes by 2030.
