Changing Patterns in Industrial Demand for Sulphur.
Proc Int'l Conf Sulfur 1982 I:9-19
An attempt has been made to project the level of U.S. industrial sulfur demand in 1990, using various macroeconomic indicators, and using the United States as a model for the world as a whole, a further projection of total world industrial sulfur demand has been made. The potential world demand for current industrial uses for sulfur by 1990 is estimated to be 31.6 million metric tons. The most promising new uses for sulfur are believed to be in road paving materials and sulfur concrete. The potential world demand for new uses by 1990 is estimated to be 6.0 million metric tons. Thus, the total demand for industrial uses in 1990 is projected to be 37.6 million metric tons, which represents an annual growth rate of 5.4 pct from 1981 to 1990.
