Extensive derivatives of phthalic anhydride derivatives such as unsaturated polyester resins, dyes & pigments, alkyd resins, detergents, insecticide, herbicide and rubber scorch inhibitor are expected to drive the global phthalic anhydride market in the coming years.

Major factors such as increasing demand from various end industries including construction, original equipment manufacturers and automobile are driving the market further. Moreover, phthalic anhydride is majorly used for the production of plasticizers, unsaturated polyester resins (UPRs), and alkyd resins. These derivatives are further used for the production of wire & cable applications, roofing membrane, coated fabrics, swimming pool liners and many others.

Phthalate plasticizers dominated the global phthalic anhydride market volume share by occupying 56.1% in the year 2017. This segment is expected to maintain its dominance over the forecast period due to increasing demand from China and India where the consumption of plastic is huge and is growing at a significant rate in the coming years. The other derivatives of phthalic anhydride include detergents, dyes and pigments, fire retardants, herbicides and insecticides, polyester resin cross-linking agents and saccharin.

Phthalic anhydride is a solid crystal in white color with irritating odor. It explodes when heated with sodium nitrate and copper oxide and reacts with oxidants. It is derived by a process known as catalytic oxidation of naphthalene or ortho–xylene. Moreover, phthalic anhydride is a precursor which reacts with other substances that are useful in organic synthesis.
