Thus, the need for increasing crop production all over the globe will indirectly push the demand for sulfuric acid during the forecast period. Similarly, development in the chemical industry and growing demand for catalysts in the processing industries are also expected to boost the growth of the sulfuric acid market.

Moreover, the growing demand for metals ignited by increasing infrastructural activities across emerging regions of Latin America, South Asia Pacific, and Africa is expected to support the growth of the sulfuric acid market during the forthcoming years. As sulfuric acid is being increasingly used in metal production and processing, rising consumption of metals will eventually create prospects within the global sulfuric acid market.

Despite several positive growth prospects, the market is witnessing certain challenges which are expected to restrain the growth outlook. Certain growth-hampering factors include stringency in environmental regulations, increase in raw material pricing and commodity chemical pricing, etc.

“Consistently growing demand from end-use industries, particularly fertilizers, metal production and processing, and petroleum refining is driving the demand for sulfuric acid,” said an analyst at FMI.
