Global Sulfur Recovery Technology Market: Overview

Over the past few years, sulfur has risen in content in sour gases and crude oils, world over. In the form of hydrogen sulfide (H2S), it is found in gaseous waste streams coming out of oil refineries, natural gas production facilities, and wastewater treatment plants. The drive for various sulfur recovery technologies seems to be more motivated by environmental concerns than of economical rewards. There is a rising need for recovering sulfur from waste streams on account of environmental factors. Claus process is used for the recovery of elemental sulfur from sour or acid gas, and is especially beneficial when the concentrations are high or when the feed capacity is made at scale. Although other processes have also been developed and used in recent decades but none other than Claus process has gained widespread popularity in the sulfur recovery technology market. Various improvements have been made to enhance the recovery of sulfur through Claus process, such as the application of cold bed absorption process at process. Various other technological advancements have been attempted at industry players to reach the sulfur recover level to 99.99%.

The report presents evidence-based insights and elaborates assessment of key growth drivers and restraints, lucrative avenues, recent product development initiatives, and major technological advances in the sulfur recovery technology market.

Global Sulfur Recovery Technology Market: Trends and Opportunities          

On account of presence of stringent environmental norms on pollution in several countries, sulfur recovery technology is majorly applied when the concentration of sulfur is relatively low. Vendors are focussing on offering cost-effective solutions to attract end users. The rising use of sulfur recovery technology for lower grade fuels in various parts of the world is also boosting the market. The rising popularity of two-bed catalytic claus plants is also bolstering the expansion of the sulfur recovery technology market. Rapid advances made in crude oil and natural gas processing in numerous developing and developed regions is also fueling the demand for sulfur recovery technology. There is an extensive demand for the technologies in oil refining operations in various parts of the world.

Uptake of sulfur recovery technologies has received a robust fillip from the stringent implementation of environmental regulations in the oil and gas industry in several developing and developed countries. Focus of industry players on improving the compliance with prevailing regional and global emission standards also augurs well for the sulfur recovery technology market. Furthermore, crude oil processing has been making rapid strides in developing economies, notably in Asia Pacific.
