“Development of Paints to Fuel Global Phthalic Anhydride Market Demand”
Phthalic Anhydride Market: Information By Derivative (Phthalate Esters, Phthalimide, Phthalein, Phenolphthalein and Others), Application (Plasticizers, Unsaturated Polyester Resin, Alkyd Resin, Flame Retardants, Dyes and Pigments and Others), End-Use Industry (Building & Construction, Automotive, Electrical & Electronics, Healthcare, Agriculture and Others) and Region (North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Latin America and the Middle East & Africa) – Forecast till 2025

Phthalic Anhydride, a commercial form of phthalic oil, is used in the manufacture of insecticides, plasticizers, dyes, and resins. Its application in alkyd resins, phthalate plasticizers, and unsaturated polyester resins can widen its scope. Global Phthalic Anhydride Market Report by Market Research Future (MRFR) contains a thorough analysis of the industry and estimates projections of revenue and volume for the period of 2019 to 2025 (forecast period). It also contains the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic during the forecast period.

Market Scope:

Global Phthalic Anhydride Market is projected to register a CAGR of 4.2% to reach a size of USD 7,213.7 million by 2025. It is primarily driven by the use of plasticizers to enhance the flexibility of polyvinyl chloride (PVC). The application of the chemical in electrical & electronics, building & construction, automotive, and other industries can drive the market demand over the forecast period. Characteristics of dimensional stability, non-flammability, moisture & abrasion resistance, and strength can facilitate the market demand greatly. Rapid industrialization and modernization of infrastructure can act as catalysts accelerating the market demand.

However, adverse effects to the human body caused due to exposure to Phthalic Anhydride can deter its market prospects.

However, regulations pertaining to the restriction of the use of phthalates can hamper market growth.
