The global ultra-pure sulfuric acid market size, in terms of value, is projected to reach USD 311.2 Million by 2020, at a CAGR of 6.3% between 2015 and 2020. The increasing demand for electronic devices in Asia-Pacific, growing technological dominance, and continuous expansion and merger & acquisition activities undertaken by companies are key factors driving the growth of the global ultra-pure sulfuric acid market.

The ppt grade is projected to be the fastest-growing grade of ultra-pure sulfuric acid between 2015 and 2020. This grade of ultra-pure sulfuric acid is the most preferred grade among specialty wet chemicals in the electronics industry and is considered as the purest grade of sulfuric acid. It has cleaning and etching applications in the semiconductors industry.

The semiconductor industry is the fastest-growing end-use industry segment in the global ultra-pure sulfuric acid market. The production of advanced and sophisticated electronic devices is driving the consumption of ultra-pure sulfuric acid in the semiconductor industry globally. The pharmaceutical industry also uses ultra-pure sulfuric acid for developing medicines or drugs for curing life-threatening ailments.

Currently, Asia-Pacific is the largest market for ultra-pure sulfuric acid, accounting for more than half of the global market size, by value, in 2014. Among all the countries, China dominates the ultra-pure sulfuric acid market in 2014, closely followed by Taiwan. Taiwan is the fastest-growing market in the world and is expected to surpass China and Japan in the UPS acid market in the near future. Along with the rising demand of UPS acid in the Asia-Pacific region, international electronic chemical and material companies find it reasonable to manufacture electronic devices in the Asia-Pacific region than other regions due to the lower cost of labor.

Ultra-Pure Sulfuric Acid Market

Though the ultra-pure sulfuric acid market is growing at a significant growth rate, few factors hinder the growth of the market globally. The shift of end-user market from developed countries to the developing countries, and fluctuations in the currency exchange rates of Japan are the major restraints toward the growth of the ultra-pure sulfuric acid market.

Companies such as Chemtrade Logistics, Inc (Canada), KMG Chemicals Inc (U.S.), INEOS Enterprises Limited (U.K.), and PVS Chemical Inc (U.S.) are the dominant market players in the global ultra-pure sulfuric acid market. The diverse product portfolio and strategically positioned R&D centers, continuous adoption of development strategies, and technological advancements are the few factors that are responsible for strengthening the market position of these companies in the market. These companies have been adopting various organic and inorganic growth strategies such as expansion, merger & acquisition, partnership, new product launch & product development to enhance their current market share.
