Sulphuric Acid Market Outlook
Sulphuric Acid Market Outlook
This event covers the following:

As the largest volume inorganic chemical produced globally, sulphuric acid is used in a wide range of industries.

Sulphuric acid supply is also contingent on the performance of three major industries - oil and gas, fertilizers, and the metal industry.

This webinar aims to highlight how the new Sulphuric Acid Outlook will provide subscribers with a better understanding of the complex sulphuric acid value chain.

We will discuss the key drivers in the major end-use sectors and how sulphuric acid market is likely to evolve with a new wave of investment underway to shift the global energy market away from the traditional fossil fuel resources and their related production of sulphur.

  • What are the impacts of 'decarbonization' on sulphuric acid supply?
  • What are the implications for the global sulphuric trade?
  • What is the relative competitiveness of smelter acid, burned acid, and pyrite acid: is access to 'free' SO2 enough, or is co-generation a stronger factor?
  • Will demand or involuntary supply have a bigger impact on prices?

The webinar will conclude with a review of key assumptions and potential market risks.
