Notch Consulting is pleased to announce the publication of World Markets for Insoluble Sulfur, a new report covering the global outlook for insoluble sulfur (IS), a non-blooming vulcanizing agent used in rubber components requiring a high degree of stickiness or tack, particularly radial tires, belting, and hoses. This report was last published in June 2009 but will be updated annually from now on. This 47-page report includes 10 tables detailing IS demand by region, market, and grade, as well as pricing, production capacity, expansion projects, and annual sales by company. The report is presented in PDF format and includes a separate Excel spreadsheet providing extensive supplemental data, including details on tire plant expansions worldwide. The report provides annual IS demand for all years from 2005 through 2012, as well as forecasts for 2013, 2014, 2015, and 2020. Volume demand is provided in tonnes and is broken out by major market (passenger tires, truck tires, all other tires, and non-tire rubber goods). Demand is also provided by region for major grades: standard, HS (high thermal stability), and HD (high dispersability).
