Global Sulphuric Acid Market to Grow at 3.02% During 2022-2027, Propelled by Escalating Product Demand in the Agriculture Sector

Published on Sep 19, 2022

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Sulphuric Acid Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027”, the global sulphuric acid market size is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 3.02% during 2022-2027. Sulfuric acid (H2SO4) is a mineral acid composed of the elements sulfur, oxygen and hydrogen. It is one of the most widely used industrial chemicals as a raw material or a processing agent. Prepared industrially by the reaction of water with sulphur trioxide (SO3), it is characterized by its odorless, colorless, and strong acidic nature. Sulphuric acid is a viscous liquid that is soluble in water and acts as a dehydrating and oxidizing agent at higher concentrations. Therefore, it is used to manufacture a wide range of chemicals, such as hydrochloric acid, sulfate salts, nitric acid, phosphoric acid, synthetic detergents, dyes, and pigments. 

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.

Global Sulphuric Acid Market Trends:

The global market is majorly driven by the escalating product demand in the agriculture sector to obtain the best amount of yield. This can be attributed to a considerable decrease in the volume of agricultural land due to rapid urbanization. In addition to this, continual advancements in the manufacturing of high-quality fertilizers and agricultural chemicals are providing an impetus to the market. Moreover, the rapid product utilization in the metal processing industry is acting as a significant growth-inducing factor for the market. Apart from this, the growing adoption of sulfuric acid in wastewater treatment plants is also contributing to the market. The market is further propelled by the augmenting need for sulphuric acid in the semiconductor industry. Some of the other factors creating a positive market outlook include rapid industrialization, considerable growth in the sales of detergents and cleaning agents, the rising demand for nutrient-rich food crops, inflating disposable income levels and extensive research and development (R&D) activities conducted by the key players.
