The major driving factors of this market are the growing needs of crops to meet the food requirements of the increasing population, rising demand for water treatment, and a shift from halogenated to non- halogenated flame retardants such as organophoshorus flame retardants.


Upcoming opportunities such as the use of phosphorus in rechargeable batteries show a promising growth for phosphorus. The new lithium iron phosphate batteries have greater prospects of use in electric vehicles due to their advantages in long term stability and economics.


Phosphorus and its derivatives have a large number of applications that range from fertilizers, detergents, food industry, water treatment chemicals, metal finishing and flame retardants. Phosphorus, one of the important nutrients for plant growth, makes fertilizers the most important application of phosphorus and its derivatives. According to industry estimates, the global demand for phosphorus fertilizers is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 2.24% during the next five years. Detergents cover the second highest market share in phosphorus and its derivatives market. However, the government in developed countries has imposed restrictions in the use of phosphorus in detergents due to environmental implications. This has restricted the growth of phosphorus in detergents, but only in developed countries.


Phosphorus has a number of derivatives, of which, ammonium phosphates hold the maximum market share. This is followed by other important derivitavies such as industrial phosphates, phosphoric acid, phosphorus chloride, phosphorus pentasulfide and phosphorus pentoxide.
