Quick Summary:

In an increasingly industrialized and urbanized world, when population growth and economic development drive the need for rapid infrastructure development, the role of chemical compounds like Phosphorous Acid takes center stage. Essential to the fabrication of PVC stabilizers, synthetic fibers, water treatment agents and more, the versatile compound is instrumental in various downstream industries including agriculture, construction, automotive, and textiles. Its critical role exemplifies why the global Phosphorous Acid has seen substantial growth in recent times and is projected to continue on this upward trajectory.

The growth of this chemical is primarily guided by its significant applications in the construction industry. From pipelines and fixtures to window frames and roofing, the reliance on PVC materials in construction is expected to burgeon in alignment with the increase in infrastructure development projects globally. Thereby giving the phosphorous acid market a strong growth impetus. Moreover, regions such as the Asia Pacific lend additional growth prospects to this market, given its domineering share in both consumption and production of Phosphorous Acid, further complementing the healthy growth outlook of the global Phosphorous Acid market.

The global Phosphorous Acid market has grown significantly in the past years and reached approximately 280 thousand tonnes in 2022 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 4.63% during the forecast period until 2032.

Phosphorous Acid, also known as orthophosphorous acid, is a compound with the chemical formula H3PO3 It is a tasteless, colorless, or yellowish crystalline material having a melting point of about 73° C. It is an unstable substance that rapidly absorbs moisture and transforms into phosphoric acid (H3PO4) when heated over 180°C or in the presence of oxygen. Phosphorous acid is used in various downstream industries like agricultural, construction, automotive, and textiles. The substance is mostly utilized to make PVC stabilizers like lead phosphite, synthetic fibres, effective water treatment agents, organophosphorus insecticides, and powerful reducing agents.

The primary driver of the global Phosphorous Acid market is its usage by Construction Industry across the globe. The production of basic lead phosphite, a stabilizer in PVC and other related chlorinated polymers, is the most significant application of phosphorous acid. PVC is mostly utilized in building supplies such as pipelines, fixtures, window & door frames, wires & cables, and roofs. Owing to rapid industrialization and new infrastructure development which is anticipated to fasten the construction sector and most likely provide motion to global Phosphorous Acid market. Since phosphorous acid reduces shrinkage and heat cracking in concrete, it is a vital component in the manufacture of synthetic fibres, which further adds on to the Phosphorous Acid market. The use of Phosphorous acid to manufacture numerous phosphate-based compounds is anticipated to bolster the global Phosphorous Acid market. The global Phosphorous Acid market is estimated to reach a volume of 430 thousand tonnes by 2032.

Based on region, Asia Pacific is dominating the Phosphorous Acid market. In 2022, Asia Pacific held a market share approximately of 50% of the global Phosphorous Acid. Moreover, Europe is the second largest consumer of this chemical. The tremendous increase in construction activities and increased spendings of government on public infrastructure, the demand for PVC is anticipated to rise, which will most likely augment the phosphorous acid market. Furthermore, Asia Pacific also dominates the market in terms of production with China being a significant player.

Based on the end-user industry, the global Phosphorous Acid market is segmented into Construction, Chemical Intermediates, Water Treatment, and Others. Among these, the Construction Industry is the major consumer with a share of roughly 37% in 2022. Furthermore, the Chemical Intermediates industry is another prominent application of the phosphorous acid.

Major players in the production of Global Phosphorous Acid are DuPont, Chemfine International Co. Ltd, Linyi Chunming Chemical, Futong Chemical Co Ltd, Zibo TianDan Chemical, Rudong Huayun Chemical, Sure Chemical Co. ltd, and Others.
