Phthalic anhydride is a precursor for various industrial products such as plasticizers, alkyd resins & coatings, polyester resins, and polyester polyols, among others. The derivatives of phthalic anhydride are furthermore used in a broad spectrum of industries, including paints & coatings, automotive, electronics, electrical, and building & construction.

 

China held the largest share in the Asia-Pacific region’s demand for phthalic anhydride. The country is estimated to occupy maximum share in phthalic anhydride demand for applications such as plasticizers, unsaturated polyester resins, and alkyd resins. However, the region is now focusing more on sustainable products, such as phthalate-free plasticizers and low-phthalic-based plasticizers. This is expected to restrain the growth of the phthalic anhydride market in the Asia-Pacific region during the forecast period of 2014 to 2019. Although this trend may have created room for the substitutes of phthalic anhydride, the replacement of phthalic anhydride completely from its existing applications is expected to be sluggish in the coming years.

 

The Asia-Pacific phthalic anhydride market, in terms of value, is projected to reach $5,632.8 million by 2019 from $4,222.4 million in 2014, at a CAGR of 5.9% from 2014 to 2019. The rising demand for plasticizers from the construction and electronics industries is contributing to the growth of phthalic anhydride in Asia-Pacific.

 

Based on applications, the phthalic anhydride market is segmented into plasticizers, unsaturated polyester resins, and alkyd resins, among others. The plasticizers segment accounted for 60% share of the Asia-Pacific phthalic anhydride market in 2014. Moreover, rising activities such as automotive production, remodeling/ construction, and original equipment manufacturing (OEM) are contributing to the increasing demand for phthalic-based plasticizers in Asia-Pacific. Furthermore, manufacturers of phthalic anhydride are focusing on expanding their production plant capacities in order to meet the demand for phthalic anhydride across the globe.

 

The key players in the Asia-Pacific phthalic anhydride market include Aekyung Petrochemical Co., Ltd. (Korea), IG Petrochemicals Ltd. (India), Nan Ya Plastics Corporation (Taiwan), Shandong Hongxin Chemicals Co. Ltd. (China), and Shanghai Coking & Chemical Corporation (China), among others.
