Elemental Sulfur Market to Grow Exponentially Forecast, 2027

Sulfur is a non-metallic chemical element with the symbol ‘S’ and atomic number 16. It occurs naturally in the environment and is the thirteenth most abundant element in the earth’s crust. Despite its abundance, it is widely produced as a by-product of various chemical processes. Sulfur recovered from oil and gas production is referred to as elemental sulfur. The U.S., Canada, China, Middle East and former Soviet Union are the leading producers of sulfur. China is also the leading importer of Sulfur. Sulfur can be combined with other elements to form various compounds such as sulphuric acid and sulphur dioxide. It is a valuable commodity and can be used to manufacture numerous products such as fertilizers, chemicals, paints, rubber products, fibers and detergents, among others.

Global Elemental Sulfur Market: Drivers and Restraints

Owing to its use in a broad range of industries, the demand for elemental sulphur is stable. Elemental sulfur is used in agrochemicals, petroleum refining and metal mining industries, among others. The agrochemicals industry forms the largest application area of elemental sulfur as there is increasing demand for food grains from developing countries such as China and India. Demand for elemental sulfur is expected to increase due to the strong growth being witnessed by the phosphate fertilizer market, which forms an important down-stream end use segment of this element. Elemental sulphur is used in the production of fungicides, insecticides and a wide range of sulphur fertilizers such as sulfate carriers, elemental sulphur-based carriers and liquid fertilizers. Sulfur is also used as a raw material in the chemical industry, primarily as a derivative in a large number of chemical and industrial processes. Demand from sulphuric acid manufacturing is high and is expected to continue during the forecast period.

The petroleum refining sector is another major consumer of elemental sulfur. The automobile industry is booming in Asia Pacific and Middle East and Africa and there is huge demand for motor vehicle fuels. Refining capacity expansions coupled with increased fossil fuel production can further add to the growth of the elemental sulfur market. Lack of economically viable substitutes is yet another important factor expected to drive the market. However, fluctuating prices of sulfur can be seen as a restraining factor hampering the growth of the market. Ensuring continuous supply of elemental sulfur to meet the increasing demand is a major challenge for the manufacturers.
