Sulfolane is a colourless liquid that is used as a solvent for extraction, distillation and chemical reactions across chemical industry. Moreover, the solution is also used to purify butadiene. These products are used in refineries to extract natural gases, oil and other lubricants. Additionally, Sulfolane is reused multiple times across petrochemical industry owing to its highly stable property.

Key Trends in Global Sulfolane Market

Increasing demand for Sulfolane for purifying gas streams

Rising number of gas extraction centers across the globe is creating new opportunities for the market players. Moreover, the removal of acidic gases forms the obtained product is necessary allowing the raw material to be in pure and usable form. Sulfolane is widely used in the purification process during gas extraction. The product is used for the elimination of acid gases such as mercaptans, carbon oxides etc. Furthermore, low solvent flows, low corrosion, low heat loads, and high solvent loading property provide extra advantage during the extraction procedure.

Impact of COVID 19 on Global Sulfolane Market

Sulfolane market was negatively impacted during the pandemic outbreak. The refineries and chemical plant extraction and production halted for a while. Declination in the consumption of gas and oil led fuel manufacturers to halt the extraction procedure. This resulted in degradation of Sulfolane usage. The restricted mobility across the globe restricted the man force to be off the production site. Moreover, the limited logistics operations limited the transport of the product to the chemical plants. These factors impacted the industry affecting the demand and growth of Sulfolane.
