Market Overview:

The global phosphorus ore market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.5% during the forecast period from 2018 to 2030. The market growth can be attributed to the increasing demand for phosphorus ore from various applications such as agricultural, pharmaceutical, chemical, food industry, defence industry and other applications. In terms of type, the carbonate fluorapatite segment is expected to hold a major share in the global phosphorus ore market during the forecast period. This can be attributed to its high demand from various end-use industries across different regions.

Global Phosphorus Ore Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

A mineral deposit containing phosphorus in concentrations sufficient to make it a commercial source of the element.

Carbonate Fluorapatite:

Fluorapatite is a mineral, which contains calcium and fluorine. It has the formula CaF2. Fluorapatite is a member of the family of minerals known as phosphates; it was first described in 1803 and named after its discovery site, fluor-apatit (Russian: Фосфит) meaning “fluorspar” or “ FTA”), by French mineralogist Bernard Henri Pinget.

Fluor Apatite:

Fluor apatite is a mineral that contains fluorine and calcium. It has the formula CaF2. Fluor apatite can be used as an industrial phosphate substitute due to its high fluorspar content, which makes it useful in manufacturing phosphates for industrial applications including detergents, textiles, and paper.

Application Insights:

The agricultural application segment accounted for the largest revenue share of over 40% in 2017. Phosphorous is an essential element for plant growth and development. It helps in maintaining the health, strength, and size of plants by providing nutrients such as calcium, sulfur, nitrogen & phosphorus. The chemical element also has important applications in agriculture such as crop fertilization and soil improvement techniques like composting & crop rotations.

Pharmaceutical is one of the promising application sectors expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period owing to rising demand from emerging economies including China India & Brazil for medicines and medical devices globally. The industry has witnessed a surge in recent years due to technological advancements that have made it easier to extract elements from their compounds namely fluorine (F)and phosphorus (P).

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific was the largest regional market in 2017 and accounted for a share of over 45%. The region is expected to witness significant growth due to rising product demand from end-use industries, such as chemical, pharmaceutical, food processing and agriculture. China is anticipated to be one of the major markets owing to its large population coupled with growing domestic demand for phosphorus-based products.

The U.S., China and India are among the top five producers of drugs globally; however, they lack adequate drug manufacturing capacities that can meet domestic needs thus driving manufacturers from other countries (such as Canada) towards these markets by offering their services at competitive rates. This scenario is further expected drive regional market growth over the forecast period.

Europe's market value was estimated at USD X million in 2017 on account of high product consumption in Germany (chemical industry), France (chemicals), Italy (chemicals) along with other Eastern European countries that are members of Organization for Economic Co-operation.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for phosphorus from agricultural and industrial sectors
  • Growing population and their increasing demand for food that requires phosphorus fertilizers
  • Stringent government regulations on the use of phosphate-based fertilizers in agriculture
  • Rising prices of phosphate rock, which is the key raw material for manufacturing phosphoric acid
  • Technological advancements in the production of phosphoric acid that would lead to lower production costs
