The global ultra-pure sulfuric acid market is projected to be worth USD 311.2 Million by 2020, registering a CAGR of 6.3% between 2015 and 2020. In this study, 2013 has been considered as the historical year and 2014 as the base year for estimating market size of ultra-pure sulfuric acid. The report aims at estimating the market size and future growth potential of ultra-pure sulfuric acid market across different segments such as grade, end-use industry, and region. The base year considered for the study is 2014 and the market size is forecasted from 2015 to 2020.

In the secondary research process, different sources have been referred to identify and collect information for this study. These secondary sources include annual reports, press releases, and investor presentations of companies, white papers, and certified publications, articles from recognized authors. In the primary research process, sources from both supply and demand sides have been interviewed to obtain qualitative and quantitative information for this report. The bottom-up approach has been used to estimate market size of ultra-pure sulfuric acid grade, end-use industry, and regions, in terms of value. The top-down approach has been implemented to validate the market size, in terms of value. With the data triangulation procedure and validation of data through primaries, the exact values of the overall parent market size and individual market sizes have been determined and confirmed in this study.

Ultra-pure sulfuric acid is a combination of different raw materials (sulfur, air, water, and sulfur trioxide) and manufacturing process. These raw materials available in the market are supplied by major companies such as the U.S. Petrochemical Industries (U.S.), Shell (U.S.), and Indian Oil Corporation Ltd. (India) to the ultra-pure sulfuric acid manufacturers such as BASF S.E. (Germany), PVS Chemicals Inc. (U.S.), Chemtrade Logistics Inc. (Canada), KMG Chemicals Inc. (U.S.), and INEOS enterprises Ltd. (U.K.), among others.

This study answers several questions for the stakeholders, primarily which market segments to focus in next two to five years for prioritizing the efforts and investments. These stakeholders include ultra-pure sulfuric acid manufacturers such as the BASF S.E. (Germany), PVS Chemicals Inc. (U.S.), Chemtrade Logistics Inc. (Canada), KMG Chemicals Inc. (U.S.), INEOS enterprises Ltd. (U.K.), Kanto Chemical Co. inc. (Japan), Trident Group (India), and he Linde Group (Germany), among others. Government organizations and universities such as Cambridge University (U.K.), European Union, and the U.S. EPA are also the critical stakeholders for this study.
