Phosphorus Trichloride Market 2018, Global Segments, Industry Growth, Top Key Players, Size and Recent Trends by Forecast to 2023

“Phosphorus Trichloride Market”
Phosphorus Trichloride Market: By Application (Chemical Intermediate, Agrochemicals, A Gasoline Additive, Plasticizer, Pharmaceuticals, And Others) And Region- Forecast Till 2023

Market Overview:

Phosphorus trichloride is a chemical compound consisting of phosphorus and chlorine. It is a white to light yellow in color with a pungent smell of hydrochloric acid. The product occurs in its pure natural form and can also be manufactured synthetically. It is primarily used in chemical synthesis of organophosphorus compounds and is a precursor to chemicals such as phosphorus pentachloride (PCl5), phosphoryl chloride (POCl3), and thiophosphoryl chloride (PSCl3).

The global phosphorus trichloride market is majorly driven by growing demand for manufacturing commodity chemicals and agrochemicals. Organophosphonates are used in a various water treatment processes as cleaners, chelating agents, corrosion inhibitors and anti-scaling agent which is likely to drive the market growth. The surging demand for agrochemicals to meet the increasing consumption needs of rapidly growing population is another major factor driving growth of the market. It is a key ingredient in the manufacturing of gasoline additives, which is expected to propel the market growth due to high efficiency and better quality fuels from automotive sector. Moreover, the high demand for phosphorus trichloride as a plasticizer is further augmenting the market growth owing to their use in PVC for providing improved flexibility, plasticity, and durability. The product is a raw material to the drug named Sulfadiazine used for prevention of diseases such as rheumatic fever, chancroid, chlamydia, and infections from Haemophilus influenzae. According to the New England Journal of Medicine, there were 33.4 million cases of rheumatic heart disease and 10.5 million disability-adjusted life-years due to rheumatic heart disease globally. The increasing awareness about the heart related and sexually transmitted diseases is driving the market growth. It is also used for electrodeposition of metal on rubber and for production of flame retardants.

However, it is classified as extremely toxic and corrosive under EU Directive 67/548/EEC, which may challenge the market growth during the assessment period. Additionally, National Institute for Occupational Safety & Health (NIOSH) and Occupational Safety and Health Association (OSHA) have set limitations on the exposure of the product.
