Phthalic Anhydride, a white crystalline compound, is used for the large-scale production of plasticizers, dyes, resins, insecticides, amongst other derivatives. The derivatives of anhydride are largely used in construction, automotive, plastics, electrical & electronics and various other industries.
The growing demand for plasticizers, in Asia-Pacific, and the developing construction and remodeling markets are driving the global market for flat glass. However, the market growth is affected by the harmful and toxic effects of phthalates.
In the report, the global phthalic anhydride market is segmented into application and geography. Based on the application, plasticizers accounted for the largest market segment for phthalic anhydride, with a market share of around 50%, in 2016. The growing demand for plastics, primarily PVC, is expected to drive the market for plasticizers by 2022. The market, on the basis of geography, is segmented into Asia-Pacific, North America, Europe, South America and the Middle-East & Africa. In 2016, Asia-Pacific was the leading consumer of phthalic anhydride market, accounting for more than XX% of the global phthalic anhydride market. The increasing production capacity of phthalic anhydride and the use of their derivatives in end-user industries has played a vital role in the increasing production and consumption of phthalic anhydride, in the Asia-Pacific region, primarily China.
