Up from the global market value of US$ 164 Mn attained in 2018, sales of sulphur bentonite will observe promising growth during the forecast period, 2019 – 2029. A new market research report by Future Market Insights (FMI) on the sulphur bentonite market forecasts a promising growth outlook for the market during the decade-old period of projection. Demand from China would account for nearly 50% of total market value towards the end of 2029.

The report opines that market growth will be primarily driven by rapid growth in demand for increased crop yield. Application will be promising in oilseeds, fruits and vegetables, cereals, pulses, crops, lawns, turf, and trees.

Reduced Sulphur Deposition in Crops with Stringent Emission RegulationsGrowing emission regulations in EU countries have significantly reduced the sulphur deposition in crops below the standard requirements. Hence, there has been an increase in the need for more intense sulphur carriers such as sulphur bentonite.

According to the Sulphur Institute in the U.K., ~50% of the land area is sulphur deficient for winter wheat and rapeseed. Europe has also been a significant producer of oil seeds and the region has witnessed a significant increase in crop yield and cereals in France, Germany, and Spain. EU 28 are the largest producers of rapeseed, followed by Canada, China, India, and Australia.

The yield has increased by 10-20% for oilseeds, legume, cereals, and forage crops. Moreover, the increasing rape oilseed production for biofuel increases the demand for fertilizers.
