Despite the downward trend in phthalic anhydride (PA) consumption within 2008-2009, the market is currently growing due to the high material demand. The world PA demand is primarily driven by such application sectors, as resins, dyes and plasticizers production. In 2013, the material was primarily applied in the production of unsaturated polyester resins and phthalates. The overall PA consumption exceeded 4 million tonnes.

In 2013, the APAC region was the dominant PA consumer. It was followed by Europe, North and Latin America. In the same year, China, the USA, South Korea, Taiwan and India were the major producers of the material. China ranked the first in the APAC region in terms of PA output, with an annual capacity of 450,000 tonnes.

The PA market is forecast to grow at over 3% annually in the next 4 years, with APAC and Latin America becoming the largest consumers. The material production is set to increase considerably in China given the significant growth of PA production facilities over the recent years.
