The global solid sulfur market is expected to reach USD 3.78 Billion by 2027, according to a new report by Reports and Data.
From the place of origin to the point of destination, sulfur must be transported in either solid or liquid form. Some regions of the world will transport sulfur in liquid form because it melts at a temperature of about 120 °C and is dependent on the local rail and road networks. In other regions of the world, particularly when it is shipped internationally, sulfur is transported in solid form. Pellets, which are tiny spherical shapes with a diameter of 2 to 6 mm, are the most common form of delivery for solid sulfur. Bulk crushed solid sulfur is one of the several forms that can be transported. However, because of their superior handling qualities, pellets are used for international transportation the most frequently.
To increase crop yield and quality, sulfur is now recognized as a crucial nutrient that must be added in deficient soils. Manufacturers of fertilizers, such as calcium sulfate, a well-known fertilizer for preventing nutrient runoff and soil erosion, frequently employ sulfur. Plants only need 10 to 30 pounds of sulfur per acre. Sulfur also acts as a soil conditioner, bringing down the soil’s salt content. Sulfur contributes to the flavor of mustard, onions, and garlic and is a component of several vitamins found in plants.

Though it might accumulate in sandy or overworked soil layers, the sulfur in fertilizer helps to create seed oil. To reduce sodium levels, sulfur is utilised as a soil conditioner, and 1,000 to 2,000 pounds (450–900 kg) per acre are needed (4,000 square meters). Although it is rare, sulfur shortage in the soil can occur when fertilizers are applied often and the soil does not percolate adequately.
