Market Definition

Phthalic anhydride is a white colored organic crystalline compound with the chemical formula C6H4 (CO) 2O generally formed due to catalytic oxidization of O-Xylene. Corrosion may be sped up by its exothermic reaction when in contact with water. Materials such as synthetic resins are produced using it. It is phthalic acid in its form as it is used commercially. Plastics made from vinyl chloride are often produced using phthalic anhydride as a chemical intermediary. Given its dual functionality and accessibility, it is referred to as a flexible intermediate in chemical reactions.

Phthalic Anhydride Market Dynamics

This section deals with understanding the market drivers, advantages, opportunities, restraints and challenges. All of this is discussed in detail as below:

Drivers

  • Various Applications of Phthalic Anhydride

Phthalic anhydride is frequently used as a monomer for synthetic resins like polyester, alkyd, and glyptic resins, which are utilized in applications for heat-resistant paints, maritime coatings, and insulation varnishes. Anthraquinone, phthalein, rhodamine, phthalocyanine, fluorescein, and xanthene dyes are also made from phthalic anhydride and are utilized in studies on medical diagnostics. Additionally, phenolphthalein, benzoic acid, phthalylsulfathiazole, and orthophthalic acid are produced from phthalic anhydrides as antibiotics for bowel operations and colon infections. Additionally, phthalic anhydride is a crucial chemical intermediary in the plastics industry from which many phthalate esters that serve as plasticizers in synthetic resins are generated. The market for phthalic anhydride is driven by the substance's wide range of useful characteristics and uses.

  • Extensive Phthalic Anhydride Properties

The demand for phthalic anhydride is rising in the building, furniture, automotive, and aviation industries due to its advantages over other materials, including its low weight, resistance to chemical rot, high transparency, and resilience to weather, corrosion, abrasion, and impact. As they increase the polymers flexibility and elongation or ease of processing by lowering the cohesive intermolecular forces along the polymer chains, plasticizers are typically used in various end-use industries. The polyvinyl chloride plasticizers are also frequently utilized in the automotive and aviation industries because they allow for simple cutting, shaping, welding, and joining in a number of designs. During the projected period, the market for phthalic anhydrides will be driven by these wide features of phthalic anhydrides.

Furthermore, the increased use of polyester and polyvinyl chloride resins in end markets like building, electronics, machinery, marine, and automotive will further propel the growth rate of phthalic anhydride market. Additionally, the growth in trade by air transportation will also drive market value growth. The expansion of the automotive industry along with the increase in defense budgets are other market growth determinants which are projected to bolster the growth of the market.

Opportunities

  • Market Strategies and Product Development

Furthermore, various market strategies adopted by the market players such as acquisition and collaborations further enhance product applications and extend profitable opportunities to the market players in the forecast period of 2022 to 2029. Additionally, the product development and innovations will further expand the future growth of the phthalic anhydride market.

Restraints/Challenges

  • Negative Impact

The development of a bio-based replacement to phthalic anhydride and the negative impacts of phthalates due to their toxicity are anticipated to restrain the growth of the phthalic anhydride market during the forecast period.

  • Bio-Based Alternatives

Factors such as the development of bio-based alternatives for phthalic anhydride will challenge the growth rate of the phthalic anhydride market.

COVID-19 Impact on Phthalic Anhydride Market

The recent outbreak of coronavirus had a negative impact on the phthalic anhydride market. Many nations are currently subject to stringent lockdowns, which have compelled several sectors to halt operations. As a result, phthalic anhydride output and demand have decreased and manufacture has been terminated. According to the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO), the COVID-19 epidemic and the subsequent shutdown have had the harshest effects on the Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSME) sector across developing economies, such as India. The demand for phthalic anhydride from various end-use industries, including building & construction, automotive, paints and coatings, is anticipated to fall as a result. It is anticipated that it will be difficult for the manufacturing sector to return to regular working conditions even with the lockdown's gradual lifting.

The lack of or reduced availability of labor is anticipated to directly impact the production operations of these industries, which will lead to a drop in the demand for phthalic anhydride. The market's growth is anticipated to slow as a result during the forecast period. The COVID-19 pandemic is to blame for the closure of paint and coating manufacturing facilities in a number of nations, which resulted in a global lockdown imposed by various governments. Because of this, there is now much less demand for the widely used phthalic anhydride-based alkyd resins that are used to make solvent-based coatings, which is predicted to slow the market's growth over the course of the forecast period. In the vehicle industry, phthalic anhydride is frequently used in the production of instrument panels, doors, and several other body elements, including the dashboard. Due to the disruption in the supply of automotive components, production activities in the automotive industry were shut down during the COVID-19 epidemic lockdown, which seriously impacted the sector. As a result, PVC demand has decreased dramatically, which has had an impact on phthalic anhydride demand. This trend is anticipated to continue as long as the global lockdown is in place.

Expected Impact of Economic Slowdown on the Pricing and Availability of Products

When economic activity slows, industries begin to suffer. The forecasted effects of the economic downturn on the pricing and accessibility of the products are taken into account in the market insight reports and intelligence services provided by DBMR.
