Phthalic anhydride (PA) is a white crystalline compound used for the manufacturing of plasticizers, pigments, dyes, and resins. According to the publisher, the global Phthalic Anhydride market is expected to witness moderate growth rate during the forecast period. Growing demand for products containing phthalic anhydride in several end-use industries including paints & coatings, plastics, and construction is expected to propel growth over the forecast period. Its increasing use in the manufacturing of unsaturated polyester resins (UPR) which is used in the manufacturing of fiberglass-reinforced plastics is likely to augment demand over the next few years. However, overexposure to the phthalic anhydride, mainly in the plastics industry can cause irritation to the eyes, respiratory tract, and skin which may hinder the growth of the global phthalic anhydride market.

Asia-Pacific is expected to lead the market due to the growing construction and automotive industry in the countries like China and India. For instance, China has reported to lead the largest active capacity contribution in the global phthalic anhydride industry, adding around 46% of the global capacity in 2019. Further, the growing demand for plastics, like PVC is anticipated to drive the studied market.

Increasing demand for phthalate plasticizers dominated the global share due to growing demand for the product in the manufacturing of PVC compounds which in turn is used for making cables, packaging films, and shoes that are expected to propel the market growth during the forecast period.

The global Phthalic Anhydride market is fragmented. Some of the key players in the market are BASF SE, ExxonMobil Corporation, LANXESS, I G Petrochemicals Limited, Aekyung Petrochemical Co. Ltd, and Mitsubishi Gas Chemical Company, among others.

In April 2019, Clariant announced the successful startup of its new high-yield OxyMax PA 690 catalyst at Petrowidada’s world-scale phthalic anhydride plant in Gresik, East Java, Indonesia.
