Based on grades of phosphorus trichloride, this market is studied for the following segments:

  • Pure Grade
  • Analytical Reagents 

With a market share of over 90%, pure-grade phosphorus trichloride clearly dominates the global market. The extensive use of pure-grade phosphorus trichloride in the manufacture of agrochemicals, plastic, and other rapidly progressing industries contributes to the dominance of this segment. As the planting acreage is widening worldwide in light of escalating food demand, global sales of glyphosate are anticipated to exceed expectations. In addition, glufosinate sales are also anticipated to grow correspondingly. Pesticides such as chlorpyrifos, acetamiprid, and others will witness significant demand across agriculture-focused countries such as India, Brazil, and China over the next few years. Furthermore, as the prices of pesticides are anticipated to decline over the next few years, it is expected that the demand for pure PCl3 in the field of agrochemicals will progress along with the overall market growth.

Based on major application areas, the global phosphorus trichloride market is segmented as follows:

  • Organophosphorus pesticides
  • Flame retardants
  • Organophosphorus chelating agents
  • Plastic additives
  • Others

Among the considered application areas and downstream industries, organophosphorus pesticides are observed to be the largest segment for phosphorus trichloride, both in terms of revenue and volume. Organophosphorus pesticides have already surpassed the $8 billion mark in global sales; organophosphorus pesticides, along with other pesticides that consume PCl3, account for approximately 16% of the total pesticide market. This category of products includes glyphosate, imidacloprid, chlorpyrifos, and others. Furthermore, flame retardants are another key phosphorus trichloride-consuming area. Phosphorus-based flame retardants contain fewer toxic substances, and the required raw materials are cheaper and more easily available.

Asia Pacific is the largest market for phosphorus trichloride among the considered regional markets. Asia Pacific is the largest producer and consumer of agrochemicals, and phosphorus trichloride is the most important downstream product. Growing cultivation acreage and domestic population demand large quantities of agrochemicals in this region, making Asia-Pacific the most lucrative regional market. The spread of PCL3 manufacturers is the widest in China, with a production history spanning over six decades. The country is scattered with a multitude of PCL3 manufacturers with a cumulative production capacity of over 2.5 MT/year. Except for China, there are not many manufacturers of PCL3; the remaining manufacturers have formed a complete and complex industrial chain.

The detailed regional classification of the global phosphorus trichloride market is as follows:

  • North America (U.S. and Canada)
  • Europe (EU 7, CIS, and Other European Countries)
  • Asia-Pacific (China, India, and the Rest of Asia-Pacific)
  • Middle East and Africa (GCC plus the rest of the Middle East and Africa)
  • Latin America (Brazil, Mexico, and the Rest of Latin America)
