Factors, such as the burgeoning construction industry, automotive sector, manufacturing sectors where coating is essential, paints & varnishes, electronics & electrical industries are expected to create wider market expansion possibilities for the phthalic anhydride market. However, it has adverse health impacts, which can deter the market growth.

Industry Segmentation:

The recent report on the global phthalic anhydride market, as discussed by MRFR analysts, contains a segmentation that is founded upon application and end-use industry. Such an analysis ensures a much-detailed look into the regional market.

Based on the application, the global phthalic anhydride market can be segmented into plasticizers, alkyd resins, unsaturated polyester resins (UPR), dyes & pigments, flame retardant, and others (insecticide, urethane polyester polyols, rubber scorch inhibitor, detergent, herbicide, saccharin). The plasticizers segment had the largest market share in 2017 and it is expected to grow further by in-sync with the booming PVC market. Latter’s growth for applications like pipes & fittings, profile & hoses, wires & cables, floorings, and others is expected to create substantial scope for the segment to expand. Plasticizers often find a wide-scale application in fixing the moldability of PVC, curing of coatings, and surface protection. The UPR segment is expected to witness its demand surging with its percolation in reinforced composites and surface coatings.

Based on the end-user industry, the global phthalic anhydride market comprises construction, automotive, electrical & electronics, and others.  The construction industry has better scope for phthalic anhydride permeation due to a varied application of PVC, UPR, and alkyd resin to manufacture diverse products.

Regional Analysis:

The global phthalic anhydride market has been segmented based on regions, by MRFR, for a better study of the market demographics. The included regions are Asia Pacific (APAC), North America, Europe, Latin America, and the Middle East and Africa (MEA). 

The APAC market has the maximum chance to score big with the highest CAGR. The regional market was already the leading one and it is only going to increase its profit margin during the forecast period. This wide-scale growth can be attributed to growing construction, automotive, and electrical & electronics industry.

On the other hand, Europe is ready to take on the strong demand posed by the robust automotive and growing microelectronics industries. North America’s growth would mark steady demand for phthalic anhydride as the construction & renovation industry are expected to witness substantial growth during the forecast period. However, stringent environmental regulations in Europe and North America have the potential to tweak the market outcomes. The Middle East & Africa can expect a moderate growth as the booming construction industry and flourishing tourism industry can inspire a hike in intake.
