Customers that benefit

The Argus Sulphur service is essential reading for players connected to the international sulphur market, in both the fertilizer and non-fertilizer industries. These include producers, end-users, shippers, traders, planners, analysts, finance officers and government departments. Below are examples of how some clients use this service:

  • Fertilizer market participants use sulphuric acid for the production of phosphate fertilizers and are dependent on our international sulphur and sulphuric acid market reports and pricing analysis.
  • Phosphate-producing companies either buy sulphur and produce sulphuric acid, or simply buy sulphuric acid. Ammonium sulphate companies require sulphuric acid to make their product.
  • Petroleum refineries rely on our market reports and pricing analysis when they sell sulphur that is a by-product of crude oil refining. Sulphuric acid is used to wash out impurities in gasoline and other refinery products in petroleum refining.
  • Sulphuric acid producers are interested in the report as it allows them to track the feedstock sulphur market and the sulphuric acid market.
  • Traders of sulphur and sulphuric acid rely on our service for market intelligence.
