Net embodied exports of US sulphur are estimated. When subtracted from conventional apparent consumption it is shown that domestic consumption (absorption) is overstated and declining. Domestic intensity of use is also declining. These results provide a basis for new forecasts of domestic demand, separate from that derived from international trade. Domestic producers will be differentially affected.
