Browse through the TOC of the North American Phthalic Anhydride Market report to get an idea of the in-depth analysis provided. It also provides a glimpse of the segmentation in the market, and is supported by various tables and figures.
Phthalic anhydride (PA) is a derivative of phthalic acid, which is obtained from the oxidation of o-Xylene or naphthalene. o-Xylene feed stock is more commonly used due to the tight supply of naphthalene—as a result of decreasing coke consumption (that resulted in low naphthalene and coal tar production)—and the increasing availability of o-Xylene from refineries. PA is manufactured in two forms, namely, flakes and in a molten state. PA finds its main application in the politicization of poly vinyl chloride (PVC) due to its ability to provide flexibility and strength to the compound. In paints and coatings, alkyd resins produced from anhydrides, such as PA and polyols, are used to enable efficient curing of the coating applied.

The increase in the range of performance characteristics of phthalic anhydride, with the advent of new production technologies, means that phthalic anhydride can be used in a vast range of applications. Rise in end-use applications like foam, shoe, and film manufacturing industries is also going to play a major role in increasing the demand for phthalic anhydride in the North American region in coming years. Though the market growth is slow, there is a lot of potential for the consumption of phthalic anhydride in the future. The North American market is expected to grow at slower pace due to the stringent environmental regulations in the region, which is making it difficult for manufacturers to adopt strategies to further expand their business.

Europe Phthalic Anhydride Market
The European chemical industry is a significant part of the country’s economy.The industry is divided in four segments including Base chemicals, Specialty chemicals, Pharmaceuticals, and Consumer chemicals. Germany is the largest chemical producer in Europe, followed by France, Italy, and The Netherlands. These four countries together account for 64.0% of the Europe chemical sales. Among various types of phthalate plasticizers such as DOP, DINP, DIBP and others, DINP (Di-Isononyl Phthalate) is the driving the demand of phthalic anhydride in the region. The major reason behind this is the confirmation by the European Commission about that the plasticize r possesses no threat and has no adverse impact on human health as well as to the environment at current scenario. Germany is the major consumer of Phthalic Anhydride in Europe, accounting for almost 35.7% of the total consumption. Subsequent to Germany are France, Poland and Italy.
