Market Overview:

The global fuming sulphuric acid market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 3.8% during the forecast period from 2018 to 2030. The growth in the market can be attributed to the increasing demand for sulphonating agents in various applications such as dye, explosives, nitrocellulose, drugs and others. In addition, the growing demand for fuming sulphuric acid from emerging economies is also contributing to the growth of this market. However, volatility in prices of raw materials used for manufacturing fuming sulphuric acid may restrain the growth of this market during the forecast period.

Global Fuming Sulphuric Acid Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Fuming Sulphuric Acid is a sulphuric acid which is dissolved in water and has a high concentration of hydrogen sulphate. It is used as an industrial chemical and can be found in products such as detergents, textiles, dyes, papermaking, and explosives.


H2S2O7 is a hygroscopic crystalline solid and has a molecular weight of 132. It is formed by the reaction between Sulphur and Oxide of Zinc in an appropriate solvent. The product finds application as fuming sulfuric acid in the zinc refining industry, for removing impurities from ores during the production process of refined zinc.


H4S2O8 is a chemical compound and has 8 hydroxyl groups. It is also known as Sulphur Dioxide-Water, or Sulphuric Acid Water. It can be used in place of regular H2SO4 which means it has more demand in the global market than other forms of sulfuric acid.

Application Insights:

Fuming sulfuric acid is used for the manufacture of a wide range of products including sulfonating agents, dyes, explosive, nitrocellulose and other drugs. In terms of volume application in various industries, sulfonating agent was the major segment accounting for over 40% share in 2017. The product is extensively utilized as a reagent by organic chemists to prepare polysulfide compounds which are widely utilized as agricultural chemicals or detergents.

The use of fuming sulfuric acid results in rapid generation of highly corrosive hydrogen gas that has been widely adopted owing to its low toxicity and non-corrosive properties.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific was the largest regional market in 2017 and is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period. The region has been witnessing a growing demand for sulfuric acid since past few years owing to rapid industrialization and economic growth in countries such as China, India, Indonesia, Vietnam, Thailand among others. Asia Pacific is projected to be followed by North America with a share of 22.0% in terms of volume due to rising nitrocellulose application sector coupled with stringent regulations laid down by U.

The European market for fuming sulfuric acid also witnessed significant growth over the past few years on account of increasing nitrocellulose production coupled with stringent environmental regulations laid down by EU5 (Germany, France Italy, UK and Spain).

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand from end-use industries such as fertilizer, metal processing, and chemical production
  • Growing population and rising income levels in developing countries
  • Rapid industrialization and urbanization in emerging economies
  • Technological advancements that improve the efficiency of sulfuric acid production processes
  • Stringent environmental regulations to reduce emissions of sulfur dioxide
