Impact of COVID 19 on Global Sulfolane Market

Sulfolane market was negatively impacted during the pandemic outbreak. The refineries and chemical plant extraction and production halted for a while. Declination in the consumption of gas and oil led fuel manufacturers to halt the extraction procedure. This resulted in degradation of sulfolane usage. The restricted mobility across the globe limited the manpower’s ability to leave the production site. Furthermore, due to limited logistics operations, the product could not be transported to the chemical plants. These factors had an impact on the industry, affecting sulfolane demand and growth.
