Phthalic Anhydride Market Size to Reach $5.6 Billion by 2030 | CAGR: 4.2%: AMR

As per the report published by Allied Market Research, the global phthalic anhydride market was pegged at $3.7 billion in 2020, and is expected to reach $5.6 billion by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 4.2% from 2021 to 2030.

Rise in use of phthalic anhydride in manufacturing of alkyd resin and plasticizers, increase in consumption of alkyd resin in the paints and coatings industry, and surge in construction activities in Asia-Pacific region drive the growth of the global phthalic anhydride market. However, harmful effects of phthalates due to their toxicity and development of bio-based alternative of phthalic anhydride hinder the market. On the contrary, increase in need for polyester polyols and rise in use of glass fiber-reinforced polymers are expected to open lucrative opportunities for the market players in the future.

Covid-19 scenario:

  • Due to the Covid-19 outbreak and strict regulations imposed by the government, the paints & coating manufacturing facilities have been shut down. The demand for phthalic anhydride decreased significantly.
  • Moreover, phthalic anhydride is widely used in the production of plasticizers. However, amid lockdown across several countries, the constriction of residential, commercial, and industrial projects was suspended. Thus, the demand for PVC products that are used in flooring, plumbing, and wiring also reduced.
  • The automotive industry took a big hit due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The demand for automotive decreased significantly due to the adoption of work from home culture. Thus, the manufacturing volume of dashboards and other automotive body parts was reduced.

The report segments the global phthalic anhydride market on the basis of process, application, end-use industry, and region.

Based on application, the plasticizers segment held the lion’s share in 2020, accounting for more than half of the market. However, the alkyd resins segment is projected to manifest the highest CAGR of 5.5% from 2021 to 2030.
