The rapid economic growth in most of the emerging countries such as China and India in recent years has resulted in the rampant growth of food, industrial and automotive sectors, which in turn created significant demand for phosphorus and its derivatives.

Among all the regions, Asia accounted for the largest portion of phosphorus and its derivatives demand, which was about more than half of the world market in 2012. An increase in the region’s demand is mainly due to rising demand to grow crops to meet food demands of the growing population in developing countries.
