The Global Sulphuric Acid Market Has Expanded to Reach Approximately 220 Million Tonnes in 2021 and is Expected to Grow at an Impressive CAGR of 3.47% During the Forecast Period Until 2030

The global Sulphuric Acid market has expanded to reach approximately 220 million tonnes in 2021 and is expected to grow at an impressive CAGR of 3.47% during the forecast period until 2030. Guizhou Phosphate Chemical Group is the largest plant of Sulphuric Acid on an international level, which was founded in 2019 and situated in Guizhou, China. Currently, it holds an annual capacity of 7000 thousand tonnes of Sulphuric Acid.

Sulphuric Acid is well-known mineral acid and oxidizing agent, commonly produced by contact process method by sulphur dioxide production using sulphur in the presence of air across the globe. Sulphuric Acid is colorless and water-soluble, having various applications across the chemical, fertilizer, and pharmaceutical industry. Of total Sulphuric Acid global production, over half of it goes into the production of phosphoric Acid, which producers use 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. Other industrial uses of sulphuric Acid are for producing dyes, pigments, medicines, explosives, surfactants, inorganic materials, and acids, as well as petroleum refining and metallurgical operations.

The primary driver of the Sulphuric acid market is the Phosphate Fertilizers Sector. Mono ammonium phosphate (MAP) and diammonium phosphate (DAP), blended with phosphate rock to create phosphoric Acid, are made using Sulphuric Acid as a feedstock. Since these minerals may be readily absorbed and utilized by crops, mineral fertilizers supplement the soil's nutritional levels. The increasing demand and consumption of food following the growing population at a high rate across various regions globally would generate the need for fertilizers which is expected to swell the total demand for Sulphuric Acid globally. The global Sulphuric Acid market is anticipated to reach 300 million tonnes by 2030.

The Asia Pacific region dominates the Sulphuric Acid market in terms of consumption. Asia Pacific is expected to dominate the Sulphuric Acid market in the coming years, 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 this region. Moreover, China, the fastest-growing economy, has massive potential for the pharma industry, which contributes significantly to the overall growth of Sulphuric Acid in the region through the forecast period.

Based on the end-user industry, the global Sulphuric Acid market is segregated into Phosphate Fertilizers, Metal Processing, Phosphating, Fibres, Paints & Pigments, and Other end-use industries. Phosphate Fertilizers are dominating the Sulphuric Acid market on the global level. In 2021, this industry accounted for approximately 45% of the global market. The Metal Processing industry also relies heavily on sulphuric Acid. It is frequently employed in processing metals, such as in the production of copper and zinc, as well as in the pickling process, which cleans the surface of steel sheets. With ongoing construction projects, sulphuric acid demand for metal processing is anticipated to swell up by 2030.

Major players in the production of Global Sulphuric Acid are Yunnan Yun, Guizhau Phosphate Group, Saudi Arabian Mining Company (Ma’aden), OCP Group, Anhui Tomgling ( North ferrous metal), Hubei Yihua, Jiangsu copper, Sichuan Dragon Python Group, Hubei Xingfa, Aurubis, Shangdong Yanggy Xiansgguang, Boliden AB, and Codelco.
