Sulfur Fertilizer Market Trends

This section covers the major market trends shaping the Sulfur Fertilizer Market according to our research experts:

Reduction in Sulfur Emission

Sulfur emission has decreased significantly over the last decades. For instance, In the United States, Sulfur dioxide emission (SO2)  has fallen to 2.82 million tons in 2017 from 31.22 million tons in 1970. The reduction in sulfur dioxide is mainly due to the Clean Air Act, which includes the implementation of the Acid Rain Programme. As the Clean Air Act is progressing positively, there has been a reduction in sulfur emission, so the amount of atmospheric sulfur deposited in the soil is only 25%. Crops are now deficient with sulfur and in the future, more deficiency of sulfur will continue due to the "Clean Air Act" which will drive the sulfur macronutrients market during the forecast period.
