The global sulfur demand is slated to increase through the upcoming years given the growing consumption for phosphate fertilizer manufacturing, the key downstream market for the material. Besides, there is no economically advantageous alternative for sulfur today.

As of 2013, China, the US and Russia dominated the market in terms of output, accounting for 15%, 13% and 11% shares of the world sulfur market, respectively. The countries were followed by Canada (8.7%) and Saudi Arabia (5.9%), which are also one of the major producers of the material.

Asia is the largest sulfur consumer, followed by North America and Africa. Over half of the overall sulfur output was used in phosphate fertilizers sector, with metal mining, agricultural and other chemicals also being the other main downstream markets.

The sulfur production is anticipated to grow at LNG operations in the Middle East and at the oil sands mining operations in Canada. Still, the world downward trend of the economy constrains the growth of sulfur output in these regions. The current sulfur production is enough to serve the material demand in the future.
