This research report provides details about the trends and growth prospects for the global phthalic anhydride market, by the end of 2018. The anhydride of phthalic acid is obtained from the oxidation of o-Xylene or Naphthalene. The products derived from anhydride have high importance in industries such as plastics, automotive, paint & coatings, electrical & electronics, and others. The demand of phthalic anhydride depends on the demand of its downstream products. Since, these products directly interact with the customers; any change in the consumption pattern of these products gets reflected in the consumption of PA. The regions such as Asia-Pacific, South America, and Middle East represent growing demand for PA, while in North America and Europe the growth in its demand is expected to be relatively low. The main reason is the toxic profile of phthalic anhydride which may enter the environment by leaching or inhalation. Although, toxicity of phthalic anhydride is the main reason for restrictions on its use, it should be made clear that not all the phthalic anhydride-based products are harmful or toxic at normal level.

Plasticizers are the important application area for phthalic anhydride, followed by unsaturated polyester resins and alkyd resins. The increasing demand for molding of PVC articles is driving its demand particularly in the Asia-Pacific and ROW regions. The growing application of UPR in reinforced laminates and surface coatings is driving its demand and that for alkyd resins is particularly driven by growth in demand of solvent-borne coating. However, solvent-borne coatings are increasingly being replaced by water-borne and powder coatings in its area of application.

This study estimates the global market of phthalic anhydride by the end of 2018. The Asia-Pacific region is the most dominant market owing to large and growing demand for plastics, paints & coatings, herbicides, insecticides, and other chemical intermediates.

This phthalic anhydride market research study provides detailed qualitative and quantitative analysis of the global market and its derivatives. The report provides a comprehensive review of the important drivers, restraints, opportunities, winning imperatives, and challenges in the market. The market is further segmented and forecasted for key geographic regions which are North America, Europe, Asia–Pacific, and Rest of the World. The market share of top players has been discussed for PA. The top players of the industry are profiled in detail with their recent developments and other strategic industry activities.

We have used various secondary sources such as company’s annual reports, directories, and databases to identify and collect information useful for this extensive commercial study. The primary sources – experts from related industries - have been interviewed to obtain and verify critical information as well as to assess the future prospects of phthalic anhydride.

The global phthalic anhydride market is witnessing growth on account of increasing demand of plasticizers, reinforced laminates, paints & coatings, dyes & pigments, and others. On the basis of applications, the market of phthalic anhydride has been segmented as plasticizers, unsaturated polyester resins or UPR, alkyd resins, and others. Phthalate plasticizers are mainly used in molding the otherwise hard and brittle PVC into useful shapes. The UPR are used in the manufacturing of reinforced laminates. These can also be used in some specialized applications such as surface coatings. Alkyd resins are used in the formulation of solvent-borne coatings that are increasingly being replaced by water-borne and powder coatings in (Same as RD) industrial and domestic applications. Other useful end-use applications of phthalic anhydride are flame retardants, chemical intermediates, and reinforced laminates in automotive, electrical, and marine applications.

The global phthalic anhydride market, in terms of value, was estimated to be worth $6,130.55 million in 2012 and is estimated to reach $8,415.89 million by 2018, growing at a CAGR of 5.24% from 2013 to 2018. Asia-Pacific region dominated the global market demand in 2012. It is projected to remain the largest market in the near future owing to the increasing demand from its key countries, namely, China and India. Europe and North America remained second and third largest markets for phthalic anhydride. Stringent environmental regulations in Europe and North America are making it difficult for manufacturers to adopt strategies to increase their business in these regions.

Key participants in the global phthalic anhydride market include BASF (Germany), Shandong Hongxin (China), Nan-Ya Plastics (Taiwan), ExxonMobil Chemical (U.S.), Aekyung Petrochemical (Japan), IG Petrochemicals (India), Polynt SPA (Italy) Koppers Industries (U.S.), and others.
