Hydrogen sulphide (H2S) is a colourless gas, soluble in various liquids including water and alcohol. It occurs naturally as well as can be produced commercially by industrial methods. It can be formed under conditions of deficient oxygen, in the presence of organic material and sulphate. Most of the atmospheric hydrogen sulphide has natural origins. Hydrogen sulphide occurs around sulphur springs and lakes, and is an air contaminant in geothermally active areas. Saline marshes can also produce sulphide. Industrially, it is produced by various processes in the chemical, oil & gas and metals industry.
Globally, the growing trend of end-use industries for hydrogen sulphide is the major growth driver for the hydrogen sulphide market. Increasing usage and demand of hydrogen sulphide in emerging nations is an opportunity for the hydrogen sulphide market to grow. However, health hazards related to hydrogen sulphide is the key factor restraining the growth of hydrogen sulphide market.
