In 2020, Due to the outbreak of COVID-19, the pandemic triggered an unprecedented decline in the global automotive industry due to the novel coronavirus which led to nationwide lockdowns and government restrictions across several nations to contain the spread of deadly virus. Renowned tire makers across the world halted their operations for more than a quarter which negatively affected the quarterly sales figures. Hit by the demand downturn, the global tire giant Goodyear announced its permanent closure of some of its tire manufacturing facilities in North America and Europe. Brussels-based Bridgestone announced a pause in the production in response to the pandemic. Apollo Tires Ltd.  also stopped its production of passenger car tires in the Netherlands. Global crises have proportionately impacted the operating rates across Insoluble Sulphur manufacturing units, which led to double-digit fall in the sales figures of renowned manufacturers such as Oriental Carbon & Chemicals and Eastman. However, with gradual reopening of emerging economies, the demand is expected  to bounce back within the next half of the year. Furthermore, boosting demand from footwear industry and agricultural tire sector is likely to augment the overall market outlook in the forecast period.

Region wise, Asia Pacific Region dominates the global Insoluble Sulphur market. Increasing industrialization across China, India, Japan, South Korea and other Asian countries has led to the exponential growth in the consumer spending on automobiles. Additionally, Asia pacific region also contributes to a major portion in the footwear industry across the world thereby propelling the global Insoluble Sulphur demand.  

Major Players:
