Oleum Market Insights

Oleum Market size was valued at USD 1.69 billion in 2019 and is poised to grow from USD 1.77 billion in 2023 to USD 2.57 billion by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 4.8% in the forecast period (2024-2031).

Oleum is a murky, dark, caustic liquid with a strong, permeating stench. When exposed to air, it emits sulfur trioxide. This sulfur trioxide reacts fast with any moisture in the air, resulting in a fine sulfuric acid mist. Short-term inhalation of low amounts produces irritation of the nose, throat, and lungs. Prolonged exposure to greater quantities results in a burning feeling, coughing, gagging, chest pain, fluid accumulation in the lungs, and the possibility of suffocation and death.

Oleum is sulfur trioxide excess dissolved in sulfuric acid. Oleum is sometimes known as 'fuming sulfuric acid.' In the United States, oleum is often transported on special rail tank cars outfitted with steam conduits. Road tankers are used by industrialists in the United Kingdom to carry oleum. Because oleum is a solid at certain concentrations, whereas sulfuric acid is a liquid, and because oleum is less bulky, carrying concentrated sulfuric acid via oleum is safer. The industrial user then carefully heats the tank car using the steam conduits to melt the oleum, which is then extracted as a liquid.

US Oleum Market is poised to grow at a sustainable CAGR for the next forecast year.

Oleum Market Dynamics

Oleum Market Driver

  • Rise in usage of oleum in different industries

The increased demand for oleum in end-use industries is likely to boost the market during the forecast period. It is primarily utilized as an intermediary in the manufacture of sulfuric acid. As a critical chemical compound, sulfuric acid is utilized in the production of a variety of well-known compounds such as hydrochloric acid, nitric acid, phosphoric acid, and many more industrial chemicals. Demand for oleum is predicted to rise as demand for sulfuric acid rises. This will, in turn, boost the oleum market over the forecast period.

Oleum Market Challenge

  • Rapid increase in price

Imported sulfur prices have risen significantly as a result of numerous import regulations. Sulfuric acid costs have been steadily rising since the second half of 2020. The price will rise again in July 2021. China is one of the world's top manufacturers of sulfuric acid. In East China, the average market price of smelting sulfuric acid has risen from USD 15/ton in 2020 to USD 120/ton in 2021. As a result, quick price increases may provide a challenge to the market's growth.
