Phthalic Anhydride Market Size, Industry Survey, Competitive Trends, Outlook and Forecasts 2019 to 2023

High demand for PVC in construction and the automotive industry is expected to fuel the demand for plasticizers and ensure the stable revenue source for the global phthalic anhydride market over the forecast period

Pune, India - September 18, 2019 /MarketersMedia/ —

Market Overview:

The global phthalic anhydride market, as per a report by Market Research Future (MRFR) is touted to register a healthy CAGR during the forecast period (2017-2023).

Phthalic anhydride is an organic compound, which is white and appears in molten form or lustrous crystalline flakes and possesses a pungent odor. The compound is extensively used in the production of plasticizers, which results in the making of PVC. It is produced by oxidation of naphthalene in concentrated sulfuric acid in the presence of mercury sulfate. The compound is soluble in benzene, alcohol, hot water, carbon disulfide, and is slightly soluble in ether and water.

The mounting demand for PVC from the automotive and construction industries is likely to trigger the demand for plasticizers and ensure a stable source of revenue for the phthalic anhydride market. The surging application of UPR in surface coatings and reinforced laminates will propel the market growth in the automotive, construction, and electrical & electronics industry. Phthalic anhydride is extensively used to produce flame retardants which find huge application in foams of furniture, electronics products, and car seats. This is predicted to encourage the market growth in the home furnishing, automotive, and electrical & electronics industry. Surging demand for dyes and pigments from the plastics and paints & coating industry will create new growth opportunities for the market. Moreover, the surging demand for polyester polyols used in the manufacturing of polyurethanes is likely to offer growth opportunities in the foreseeable future.

Despite such advantages, phthalic anhydride possesses some characteristics which will impede the market growth in the coming years. The short-term exposure to phthalic anhydride can result in irritation to the eyes, skin, and respiratory tract. Meanwhile, long-term exposure can lead to rhinitis, conjunctivitis, irritation of the skin and mucous membranes of the respiratory tract, bronchitis, and even cancer in extreme cases. This is likely to slow down the market growth in the long run.

Segmental Analysis:

The Phthalic Anhydride Market has been segmented on the basis of application and end use industry.

By application, the market is segmented into unsaturated polyester resins, plasticizers, flame retardant, alkyd resins, dyes & pigments, and others. Of these, the plasticizers segment acquired the lion’s share in 2017 and is likely to expand with the booming PVC market. Plasticizers find application in curing of coatings, fixing the moldability of PVC, and surface protection. This is further anticipated to encourage the market demand in the segment.

The end use industry comprises automotive, construction, electrical & electronics, and others. Of these, the construction industry has better scope for the phthalic anhydride market owing to a varied application of UPR, PVC, and alkyd resin to manufacture several products.

Competitive Dashboard:

Hongxin Chemical
ExxonMobil Corporation
I G Petrochemicals Limited
Koppers Inc.
Polynt SPA
UPC Group
Mitsubishi Gas Chemicals Co. Inc.

Regional Frontiers:

Geographically, the phthalic anhydride market spans across North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East and Africa.

Considering the global scenario, the Asia Pacific is likely to command the fastest and largest share in the global market, mainly due to the recent boom in the automotive, construction, and electrical & electronics industry. Strong supply and rising inventory management of PA among the producers have generated downward pressure on the raw material prices.

Europe is likely to experience strong demand from the microelectronics and automotive industries. The region is likely to expand at a steady pace, in terms of revenue as well as volume. The region may expect slow growth in the coming years due to the slow recovery of manufacturing industries from the effects of economic turndown. Meanwhile, North America will register a steady demand for phthalic anhydride from the construction and renovation industry.

However, strict environmental mandates in North America and Europe are likely to restrict the market growth owing to the toxicity of phthalic anhydride.

3-2-1-Cookoff! Astronauts to bake cookies with new test oven

Jun 6, 2020

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. — Forget reheated, freeze-dried space grub. Astronauts are about to get a new test oven for baking chocolate chip cookies from scratch. The next delivery to the International Space Station — scheduled for liftoff this weekend — includes the Zero G Oven. Chocolate chip cookie dough is already up there, waiting to pop into this small electric oven designed for zero gravity. Sample cookies baked just this week are also launching from Virginia on Northrop Grumman's Cygnus capsule, for the six station astronauts. The experiment explores the possibility of making freshly baked items for space travelers. With...

NASA moves up 1st all-female spacewalk to fix power unit

Jun 6, 2020

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. — NASA has moved up the first all-female spacewalk to this week because of a power system failure at the International Space Station. Astronauts Christina Koch (cook) and Jessica Meir (mere) will now venture out Thursday or Friday, instead of next Monday. A battery power controller failed over the weekend, prompting the change. The women will replace the broken component, rather than install new batteries, which was their original job. Last week, astronauts conducted two spacewalks to replace old space station batteries. They have three more spacewalks to go to finish the battery work. A battery-swapping spacewalk...

Museum of the Bible quietly replaces questioned artifact

Jun 6, 2020

OKLAHOMA CITY — The Museum of the Bible in Washington quietly replaced an artifact purported to be one of a handful of miniature Bibles that a NASA astronaut carried to the moon in 1971 after an expert questioned its authenticity. The move follows an announcement last year that at least five of 16 Dead Sea Scroll fragments that had been on display at the museum were found to be apparent fakes. The museum replaced the original microfilm Bible with one that was donated by an Oklahoma woman who wrote a book about the Apollo Prayer League, which arranged for Apollo...

No Deal: Auto workers strike against GM in contract dispute

Jun 6, 2020

DETROIT — More than 49,000 members of the United Auto Workers walked off General Motors factory floors or set up picket lines early Monday as contract talks with the company deteriorated into a strike. Workers shut down 33 manufacturing plants in nine states across the U.S., as well as 22 parts distribution warehouses. It wasn't clear how long the walkout would last, with the union saying GM has budged little in months of talks while GM said it made substantial offers including higher wages and factory investments. It's the first national strike by the union since a two-day walkout in...

Union votes to strike at General Motors' US plants

Jun 6, 2020

DETROIT — The United Auto Workers union announced Sunday that its roughly 49,000 workers at General Motors plants in the U.S. would go on strike just before midnight because contentious talks on a new contract had broken down. About 200 plant-level union leaders voted unanimously in favor of a walkout during a meeting Sunday morning in Detroit. Union leaders said the sides were still far apart on several major issues and they apparently weren't swayed by a GM offer to make new products at or near two of the four plants it had been planning to close, according to someone...
