Market Overview:

The global hydrogen sulfide market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.5% from 2018 to 2030. The growth in the market can be attributed to the increasing demand for hydrogen sulfide in the chemicals, pharmaceutical industry, and laboratories & analysis applications. Additionally, the growing demand for high purity gas is also contributing to the growth of this market. However, stringent environmental regulations may restrain the growth of this market during the forecast period. On basis of type, high pure gas held a major share of 71% in 2017 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.8% from 2018 to 2030 due its properties such as non-toxicity and inertness which make it suitable for various applications such as semiconductor manufacturing and analytical laboratories among others.

Global Hydrogen Sulfide Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

A colorless gas with a characteristic odor of rotten eggs. It is a flammable gas and is toxic to humans. It occurs naturally in crude oil and natural gas and is produced when organic matter decomposes. Hydrogen sulfide is used as an industrial chemical, in the manufacture of sulfuric acid, and as a fumigant.

High Pure Gas:

High pure gas, also known as HPG or hydrogen sulfide is a colorless and odorless liquid that consists of only one component, which is gaseous sulfur. It has a density of 0.79 kg/L and boiling point of -44°C. Sulfur dioxide (SO2) is the most common compound found in high pure gas form; it accounts for over 90% by volume in commercial quantities.

Gas Mixtures:

The global gas mixtures and it's usage in hydrogen sulfide market is expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period. The growing demand for natural gas coupled with low cost of production has resulted in a shift towards using mixture of natural gas (methane) and syngas (oxygen & carbon monoxide) as fuel over conventional fossil fuels such as coal, oil or even biofuels.

Application Insights:

The chemicals segment led the global market and accounted for more than 70.0% share of the total revenue in 2017. The growth of this segment is attributed to rising demand for chemical products, such as fertilizers, from emerging economies including India and China. In addition, increasing use of H2S gas in chemical production across all regions is expected to drive the product demand over the forecast period.

Hydrogen sulfide has a significant role in producing sulfuric acid which is used as a major raw material for several industries including pharmaceuticals and water treatment plants among others.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific was the leading regional market in 2017 and is expected to witness a significant growth rate of 7.8% over the forecast period. The region has been witnessing increasing demand for H2S across major end-use industries such as chemicals, pharmaceuticals, metal processing and refining, oil & gas exploration, etc. This can be attributed to rising investments by various companies in this region for manufacturing different products using hydrogen sulfide as an input material.

The growing chemical industry coupled with increasing production of organic compounds is anticipated to drive product demand in Asia Pacific over the forecast period.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand from the oil and gas industry as a result of increasing exploration and production activities
  • Growing demand for hydrogen sulfide in the chemical industry as a precursor to sulfuric acid production
  • Rising use of hydrogen sulfide in wastewater treatment plants to remove organic pollutants
  • Increasing application of hydrogen sulfide in food processing industries for preservation of food items
  • Growing popularity of green technologies that use hydrogen sulfide as an environmentally friendly alternative to other industrial gases
