The Global Phthalic Anhydride market is forecast to reach USD 13.18 Billion by 2027, according to a new report by Reports and Data. Phthalic anhydride [PA] is a white solid organic compound having the molecular formula of C6H4(CO)2O. It appears as colorless to white lustrous solid with a mild distinctive odor, in the form of needles. It has a Flash point of 305°F and Melting point 64°F. It finds various applications ranging from plasticizer, and artificial resins, among others, which acts as one of the mentionable factors propelling the growth of the market. Factors like high demand for PVC in the Asia Pacific, the rising demand for Polyester Polyols, and the growing demand for Alkyd Resins are supporting the overall growth of the market. Various initiatives taken by the market players are also positively impacting the market growth. As an instance, in September 2019, Polynt-Reichhold Group, one of the mentionable market players, had announced that it had decided to expand its strategic integration initiative to America, which it had employed in Asia and Europe. In order to expand its strategic integration initiative, it would invest in the local production of Phthalic Anhydride and Maleic intermediates. Thus, such initiatives by market players would also support the overall growth of the market. In context to region, Europe can be seen to occupy a significant share of the market. The market share held by the region is attributed to the continuous expansion of the automotive and healthcare sector in this region. The continuous expansion of the healthcare sector results in extensive use of PVC in various medical applications, including infusion, and medical tubing for IV, among others, which also positively impacts the expansion of the market in this region.
