Sulfuric acid Price Trend

Following a consistent uptrend in the previous quarter, the sulphuric acid market sentiments in US eased during the final quarter of 2021. The development in the market dynamics could be attributed to the improved availability of feedstock sulphur as the OPEC+ alliance reported a gradual increase in the production of crude oil which was further backed by the announcement made by the Biden’s administration to release oil reserves in the middle of the fourth quarter. Additionally, the quarterly average producer's price index in the US for sulphuric acid was assessed at 206.10 points. The FOB Linden NJ prices for sulphuric acid followed a ripple effect and were settled at 178 USD/MT.  In China, the price was recorded in the range of 800-1400 RMB/MT in March 2022. The upstream sulphur market had risen sharply and the cost support was good.

About Sulfuric Acid

Sulfuric Acid, a colourless liquid, is a well-known mineral acid consisting of elements such as sulphur, oxygen and hydrogen. It is an odourless liquid that is viscous in nature and miscible in water. It is synthesized in extreme exothermic reactions. It has strong acidic nature and it readily absorbs water vapour from the air. It finds wide range of applications in chemical industry such as its use as an electrolyte in lead-acid batteries. 

Chemical Formula:

  • H2SO4


  • 7664-93-9
  • Sulfuric acid
  • Oil of vitriol

Molecular Weight:    

  • 98.08 g/mol

Industrial Uses

  • Fertilisers
  • Production of chemicals
  • Sulphur–iodine cycle
  • Oil refining
  • Wastewater processing
  • Industrial cleaning agent
  • Catalyst
  • Electrolyte

Production Processes

  • Production of Sulfuric Acid from Sulphur via Single Contact Process, via Double Contact Process, via Wet Sulfuric Acid Process, from Tail Gas Using H2O2 Abatement

In order to produce Sulfuric Acid via Single Contact Process, sulphur is burned to produce sulphur dioxide, followed by its conversion to sulphur trioxide via oxidation. The obtained sulphur trioxide is transformed into Sulfuric Acid by absorption with recirculating Sulfuric acid solution in water in just one column.
