Demand of Sulfur Chemicals Market in Global Industry : Insights, Development, Research and Forecast 2016-2019

Press release from: Sulfur

Albany, NY, 11 JAN : Sulfur has atomic number 16 and is represented with symbol “S”. Elemental sulphur is available as a crystalline bright yellow solid at room temperature. As sulfur is 0.0384% of the Earth’s crust, it is said to be the seventeenth abundant element. It has the ability to react either as a reducing agent or as an oxidant. Sulfur has the property to oxidize several nonmetals and metals that include carbon and leads to negative charge in large amount of the organosulfur compounds. It also reduces strong oxidants such as fluorine and oxygen. Sulfur is available in its pure elemental form and as sulfate and sulfide minerals. It is an essential element and is used on a large scale in the biochemical processes. Sulfur compounds, in metabolic reactions, serve as respiratory material (electron acceptors), oxygen alternative as well as fuels (electron donors).

Sulfur forms stable sulfur oxides among which sulfur dioxide and sulfur trioxide are the most common found on Earth. Sulfur dioxide is pungent, colorless and nonflammable gas. The liquid form of sulfur dioxide is a good solvent, as organic materials are more soluble in SO2 than in water. Sulfur dioxide is primarily used to produce sulfur trioxide. Sulfur trioxide is another commonly found oxide of sulphur that is a colorless liquid, used in the manufacturing of sulfuric acid. Pure form of sulfuric acid is an oily, hygroscopic liquid that has no color and odor that is often reported to produce pollution problems.

Sulfurous acid is produced by the reaction of sulfur dioxide with water. It forms sulfides and cannot be separated in its pure form. Sulfides act both as oxidizing and reducing agents.

Sulfur has wide variety of applications in the medical, food, agricultural and rubber industries among others. Sulfur is used as a fungicide to conteract apple scab in organically farmed production. It is also used in the vulcanization of rubber. Sulfur compounds are also found in detergents, agrichemicals and acne treatments among other products. The oxide of sulfur such as sulfuric acid is used as a fertilizer on a large scale in the U.S. It is also used in production of titanium dioxide, plaster of Paris, oil refining and also used in car batteries.

The growing demand for sulfur from the agriculture industry is expected to be the major driving factor for the sulfur market. Other industries such as medical and food industry are also anticipated to boost demand for sulfur in the near future.

Sulfuric acid is the major factor for environmental pollution. It reacts with the atmosphere forming smog which causes acid rain. This may lead to health hazards causing respiratory disorders and may lead to skin inflammations. Therefore, environmental issues are expected to hamper the growth of sulfur chemicals market. Asia Pacific is expected to boost demand for sulfur due to huge consumption by large number of end user industries in the region. The U.S. is also expected to fuel demand for sulfuric acid owing to large consumption of sulfuric acid as fertilizers in the agriculture.

Some of the major companies profiled in the sulfur chemicals market research report include: Georgia Gulf Sulfur Corporation, Eastman Chemical Company, ENERSUL, Indian Oil Corporation Limited, The STEBBINS Engineering and Manufacturing Company, Hydrite Chemical Co. and Valero among others.
