According to this report, the North America sulfur dioxide market was valued at US$ 8,247.9 Mn in 2015 and is projected to reach US$ 16,095.0 Mn by 2024, at a CAGR of 7.8% from 2016 to 2024.

Sulfur dioxide is a chemical compound with formula SO2. At standard atmosphere, sulfur dioxide is a toxic gas and has a pungent, irritating odor. Sulfur dioxide is released naturally in the atmosphere by volcanic activity. Production of sulfuric acid is the main application of sulfur dioxide. It is used as intermediate for the manufacturing of sulfuric acid. Sulfuric acid is witnessing huge demand, especially in developing countries as these countries majorly depend on agriculture that requires phosphate fertilizers. These fertilizers are major consumers of sulfuric acid, accounting for about 50% of the sulfuric acid consumption in 2014.  Sulfuric acid is typically consumed by steel, fertilizer, and petroleum industries and the demand for sulfuric acid is projected to grow strongly in the future. Sulfur dioxide forms an important component in the production of sulfuric acid (H2SO4).
