Based on raw material, the sulfuric acid market is segmented into elemental sulfur, pyrite ores, base metal smelters, and others. Sulfur is the major raw material used in the production of sulfuric acid. Elemental sulfur is expected to account for the largest share in 2022, in terms of volume. Around 90% of sulfur produced goes into the manufacturing of sulfuric acid. Thus, the use of elemental sulfur as a major feedstock to produce sulfuric acid, fuels the growth of this segment. 

Based on application, the sulfuric acid market is segmented into fertilizers, metal processing, pulp & paper, petroleum refining, textile industry, automotive, chemical manufacturing, and others. Fertilizer application is expected to account for the largest share in 2022, in terms of volume. The growth can be attributed to the use of about 50%-60% of sulfuric acid in the manufacturing of phosphate fertilizers such as superphosphate of lime and ammonium sulphate.
