Sulfur is widely used in petroleum industries as it helps in gaining traction across various industry segments. In the current scenario, sulfur is recovered as a by-product of oil & gas industry followed by coal gasification. Sulfur recovery is a process of harnessing sulfur from hydrogen sulfide. It ranks for its large volume and ready availability and as the most abundant element in the world. Its end use application is sought in fertilizers, rubber, cosmetics and pharmaceutical industries. It needs to be eliminated during the coal gasification & extraction process in order to avoid catalyst poisoning & prevent fouling.
It is estimated that the world population is about to double in the next decade which will eventually lead to increase in food demand. Therefore, the soil is required to be much nutrient in order to serve the food demands in the near future. Sulfur is one of the most significant nutrients for plants, which means, deficiency of sulfur in plants will directly affect the crop yield. Therefore, sulfur removal technologies need to be undertaken with sincere concerns in order to ensure sustainability.
The driving factor responsible for the growth of sulfur recovery technologies market includes growing demand for sulfur across various industry verticals. Additionally, growth in end-use industries is contributing to the growth of sulfur recovery technology. Growth opportunities in farm fertilizer and mining sectors are also adding to the growth of sulfur recovery technologies market. However, a huge gap of demand and supply limits the market growth plus slowing demand for sulfur in developed countries is another market restraint.
