Global Sulphuric Acid Market, By Raw Material (Elemental Sulfur, Base Metal Smelters, Pyrite Ore), B

Published Date: | Report Code : CH1958349


Sulphuric Acid is commonly known as ‘Oil Of Vitriol’. Which, contains sulfur, oxygen, and hydrogen. The molecular formula of sulfuric acid is H2SO4. Some characteristics of sulfuric acid are colorless, odorless, and soluble in water. It is an important mineral acid for the chemical industry. It is an odorless, colorless liquid due to this it is utilized in the phosphate fertilizer industry. acidic drain cleaner, the electrolyte in lead-acid batteries and various cleaning agents. 

sulphuric acid can be produced either contact process or lead chamber process. From the contact process,  a highly concentrated sulfuric acid by using vanadium pentoxide (V2O5.) as a  catalyst. In this process,  sulfur and hydrogen sulfide are used as raw materials. In the lead chamber process, sulfur dioxide and nitrogen dioxide are dissolved, during which the sulfur dioxide is oxidized to sulfuric acid. Due to the nitrogen dioxide reaction rate is increased.

Segment Analysis

The global sulphuric acid market is segmented on the basis of raw material,  production process,  application, and end user. By end user, This market is segmented into fertilizers, chemical, petroleum, textile, automotive, paper and Other. The fertilizer segment is expected to grow for this market due to sulfuric acid helps to produce phosphoric acid which is used for the manufacturing of different types of fertilizers such as triple superphosphate, and diammonium phosphates. Along with this,  sulfuric acid is largely consumed in the synthesis of specialty chemicals such as nitric acid, hydrofluoric acid, and titanium dioxide because of this reason the chemical industry is anticipated to offer a high demand for sulphuric acid.  The global sulphuric acid market is expected to boom in the Asia Pacific region owing to increasing domestic demand for sulphuric acid by the chemical industry.

Key Factors Impacting Market Growth:
    • Increase in the production of nutrient-rich food crops 
    • Stringent environmental regulations due to toxicological effects of sulfuric acid
