Market Overview:

The global phosphorous trichloride market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 3.5% during the forecast period from 2018 to 2030. The growth in the market can be attributed to the increasing demand for phosphorous trichloride from various applications such as agrochemicals, plastic additives, and others. Additionally, the growing demand for pure grade and analytical reagents is also propelling the growth of this market. However, volatility in prices of raw materials may restrain the growth of this market to some extent during the forecast period. On basis of type, pure grade held a major share in 2017 and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 3.8% during 2018-2030 owing to its widespread use across various applications such as agrochemical intermediates, pharmaceuticals & fine chemicals etcetera . On basis on application , Agrochemical accounted for majority revenue share (~37%) followed by Plastic Additives (~27%) in 2017 .

Global Phosphorous Trichloride Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Phosphorous Trichloride is a colorless, corrosive liquid. It is used to make other chemicals and as a flame retardant.

Pure Grade:

Pure grade is a term used for P-Tetrachloroethylene that has no impurities or contaminants. It is also known as First Generation (FG) P-Tetrachloroethylene, and was the first commercial product of this family. FG PTee was first produced in 1874 by the German company, Bayer MaterialScience AG under trade name “Iodophor” which means deodorizer in English.

Analytical Reagents:

Analytical reagents are chemicals used for specific purposes. Some of the analytical reagents include indicators, catalysts, standards & calibrators and probes. The most commonly used standard is nitrogen which is a widely accepted standard in laboratories across the globe.

Application Insights:

The others application segment accounted for the largest revenue share of over 30% in 2017. The product is widely used as an additive in paints & coatings, adhesives, and printing inks. It is also used as a component of various agrochemicals such as pesticides and herbicides. In terms of volume, the agrochemical segment will expand at a CAGR of XX% from 2018 to 2030 globally owing to increasing demand for weed control chemicals across major agricultural regions including North America and Europe.

Phosphorous trichloride has been one of the most popular additives used by manufacturers within their portfolio since its introduction during early 1900s when it was first utilized as an insecticide agent against bed bugs and termites.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific was the largest regional market in 2017 and accounted for a share of over 50% owing to high product demand from various end-use industries, such as agrochemicals, plastic additives and others. The region is expected to dominate the global market throughout the forecast period. China is anticipated to be one of the major markets in Asia Pacific due to increasing demand from end-use industries coupled with growing exports from India and Japan.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand from the agricultural sector for use as a fertilizer and soil amendment is expected to be a key growth driver for the phosphorous trichloride market over the forecast period.
  • Rising demand from the chemical industry as an intermediate in the production of various chemicals is also anticipated to fuel market growth over the next few years.
  • Growing application of phosphorous trichloride in water treatment plants due to its ability to remove phosphate ions is another key factor that is expected to drive market growth during the forecast period.
  • Stringent environmental regulations pertaining to phosphate discharge into waterways are projected to create opportunities for phosphorous trichloride in water treatment applications, thereby propelling market growth over the next few years. 5) The increasing use of phosphorous trichloride as a precursor in manufacturing polyphosphates is another major factor that is likely to spur market expansion during
