Sulfur is a non-metallic, multivalent, and tasteless naturally occurring element. It is usually lemon yellowish in color and found in various mineral springs, water bodies, iron pyrites, gypsum, zinc blende, Epsom salts, barites, and other minerals and ores. Sulfate and sulfide minerals are the most available sources of sulfur on Earth. Apart from mining operations, sulfur is also produced as a byproduct during several chemical, crude oil, and petrochemical refining operations such as tar sands recovery, petroleum refining, coking and metallurgical plants, and heavy oil and natural gas processing. Sulfur is one of the most abundantly available natural elements found on Earth. It is an important nutrient for animals, human beings, and crops. It is one of the key basic chemicals that is widely used as a raw material in the chemical industry. It is used in the production of sulfuric acid as a derivative, which is further used in several industrial and chemical processes, especially in the production of phosphate fertilizers.
The increased adoption of TPV in the automotive industry is one of the primary factors that fuel the growth of the sulfur market in the coming years. The adoption of TPV offers manufacturers various benefits in terms of design flexibility, long-term weather resistance, and reduced cost that are not available with the traditional counterparts such as rubber and EPDM. As a result, it finds its application various automotive components including instrumental panels, airbag covers, dashboard coverings, mudguards, weather seals, and door trim skin. This will drive the demand for sulfur since TPV is manufactured using the dynamic vulcanization process and sulfur is used as an accelerator and curative in the vulcanization process.
APAC is estimated to be the major revenue contributor to the sulfur element market throughout the forecast period. China is the dominant player in this region and the country is focusing on the development of its chemical industry. The presence of major agricultural markets such as India, China, Japan, Australia, and Japan that account for a considerable share of the total sulfur production will drive the market’s growth prospects in this region.
