The prices considered for the sulfuric market are at the regional level, and the variations are analyzed at the country level and forecasted to 2027, thereby derived the value (revenue) of the sulfuric market.

The market size and estimations are provided in terms of volume (thousand tons) and value ($ million), considering 2021 as base year, and market forecast will be given from 2022 to 2027. Regional-level market size, with respect to raw material type and application, will also be provided. The impact of COVID-19 will be considered while estimating the market size.

Sulfuric acid is the most-produced industrial chemical worldwide. It is one of the most important chemicals, playing a significant role in many chemical processes. It has varied uses and plays some part in the production of nearly all manufactured goods. The market for sulfuric acid is expected to grow at a steady pace from 2022 to 2027. Growing use of sulfuric acid in lead-acid production and the surge in demand for these acids for the production of phosphate fertilizers are supporting the growth of the market during forecast period.

Based on raw material type, the global sulfuric acid market is segmented into elemental sulfur, base metal smelters, pyrite ore and others. In 2021, elemental sulfur accounted for the largest share of the global market. Elemental sulfur remains the primary choice for the production of sulfuric acid owing to its cheap cost, and its production is less polluting than the production of other raw materials. Base metal smelters accounted for the second-largest share in 2021.

Based on application, the global sulfuric acid market is segmented into fertilizers, chemicals, metal processing, textile, paper and pulp, petroleum refining, batteries and others. In 2021, the fertilizer application dominated the global sulfuric acid market. Sulfuric acid finds major applicability in phosphate production. The segment consumes more than 50% of the globally produced sulfuric acid.

The sulfuric acid market is expected to witness significant demand for the production of lithium-acid batteries in the coming years.

Based on region, the global sulfuric acid market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific CIS, Latin America, and Middle East and Africa. In 2021, Asia-Pacific dominated the global sulfuric market.

The region was the largest consumer as well as producer of sulfuric acid. In Asia-Pacific, China was the largest consumer of sulfuric acid. North America accounts for the second-largest share in the global market, followed by the Middle East and Africa.
