Key drivers of global sulfur chemicals market

Increase in demand for sulfur chemicals in various end-use industries such as biochemical processes, pharmaceuticals, wine, food, detergents, agriculture, and oil & gas significantly contributes toward the growth of the global market for sulfur chemicals. Sulfur chemicals serve as essential ingredients in fertilizers. In addition, one of the major end-use applications of sulfur chemicals is the rubber industry, in which sulfur is utilized for black rubber vulcanization. 

Market scenario: opportunities and challenges

Over the past few decades, the food industry has witnessed notable growth, and is projected to expand at a steady pace in coming years. Sulfur chemicals are commonly used to protect foodstuffs. Thus, sulfur chemicals are used as a food additive, owing to their antioxidant properties to increase the shelf life of the food products, which, in turn, is anticipated to create lucrative opportunity for the expansion of the global market. Furthermore, rise in use of sulfur dioxide in the wine industry propels the market growth, owing to the fact that wine consumption has increased significantly. On the contrary, sulfuric acid is one of the major sources of contamination to the environment. It reacts with the smog-forming atmosphere and tends to cause acid rain. This can result in risks to health, such as respiratory or skin inflammation. Thus, health and environmental issues associated with sulfur are projected to hinder the growth of the market for sulfur chemicals.

COVID-19 scenario analysis

Owing to the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, the global sulfur chemicals market is expected to witness a slowdown during the next couple of years. Governments of various countries have implemented lockdown, which has led to shutdown of factories in scores of cities and provinces across the world, thus leading to predictions of a sharp slowdown In addition, recent decline in the revenue of the food & beverages industry is one of the key factors that is likely to negatively impact the growth of sulfur chemicals market. Moreover, companies are dealing with missing sales and disrupted supply chains as production activities are shutdown. However, the growth of the global sulfur chemical market is projected to be driven by the development of the pharmaceutical industry, which is one of the major consumers of sulfur chemicals.
