Phosphates Market: Introduction

In terms of value, the global phosphates market is anticipated to expand at a CAGR of ~4% from 2019 to 2027. Phosphates are largely used for production of phosphate fertilizers and animal feed products across the globe. Asia Pacific dominated the global phosphates market in 2018. China is anticipated to be a leading exporter of phosphates across the globe during the forecast period. Ammonium phosphates and calcium phosphates are the most widely consumed phosphates in developed as well as developing regions, in fertilizers and animal feed, respectively. The demand for phosphates in the industrial sector is less compared to fertilizers and animal feed, owing to availability of a large number of substitutes.

Availability of Substitutes for Phosphates to Hamper Demand for Phosphates

High costs of phosphate salts, such as calcium phosphates and its derivatives, have led to increase in the usage of lower-cost substitutes such as phytase, which can be used as a means of controlling the overall animal feed cost. Furthermore, phytase can meet all functionalities of animal feed phosphates such as enhancing the digestive process, improving bone health, and promoting higher feed intake. Thus, phytase helps in the physical development of livestock and it is considered a major substitute for animal feed phosphates. A large number of substitutes are available for phosphate salts used in the industrial application. For instance, countries in Europe are planning to reduce the usage of sodium tripolyphosphate in detergents and switch to non-phosphate-based alternatives such as zeolite. Several alternatives for phosphates are available in the market. Phosphates perform a variety of functions. Alternative substances include chelating agents, surfactants, dispersant polymers, and enzymes. These provide the same functionality as that of phosphates. The availability of a large number of substitutes at a lower price is expected to hamper the demand for phosphates during the forecast period.

Ammonium Phosphate to be Leading Product Type in Phosphates Market

In terms of product, the global phosphates market has been segmented into ammonium phosphate, calcium phosphate, potassium phosphate, sodium phosphate, magnesium phosphate, single super phosphate, triple super phosphate, iron phosphate, and others. Ammonium phosphate was a major product type segment of the global phosphates market, accounting for more than 70% of the market share in 2018. It was followed by the calcium phosphate segment. Ammonium phosphate is used as a phosphate fertilizer. Increase in agricultural activities in order to meet the food demand has propelled the demand for fertilizers. Phosphorus, along with nitrogen and potassium, is one of the three key nutrients that plants require and it the major ingredient of phosphate fertilizers. Maintaining proper levels of phosphorus helps a plant acquire and store energy as well as transfer it throughout the plant. Also, phosphorus promotes the development of roots, flowers, and fruits. For gardeners who care about early harvests, phosphorus helps promote early maturity. The ammonium phosphate segment is followed by the calcium phosphate segment. The calcium phosphate segment is expected to expand at a significant rate during the forecast period. Calcium phosphate is largely used to produce animal feed products. Calcium phosphate is an essential nutrient in animal diet. It ensures optimal growth of animals; improves gut functionality and fertility; and enables bone development. Increase in the demand for ready-to-eat meat products, owing to their high protein content is one of the key factors driving the global calcium phosphate market.

Agriculture to be Dominant Application of Phosphates Market

Based on application, the global phosphates market has been segmented into building & construction, agriculture, animal feed, personal care, cleaners/detergents, food & beverages, pharmaceutical, and others. In terms of consumption, the agriculture segment held a major i.e. more than 70% share of the global phosphates market in 2018. This trend is anticipated to continue throughout the forecast period. The agriculture segment was followed by the animal feed segment, which accounted for more than 10% share of the global phosphate market, in terms of consumption, in 2018. Increase in the consumption of phosphate-based fertilizers and growing popularity of animal feed, especially in Asia Pacific, are major factors driving the demand for phosphates across the world.

Asia Pacific to be Lucrative Region of Global Phosphates Market

In terms of consumption, Asia Pacific dominated the global phosphates market in 2018. The market in the region is likely to expand at a significant pace from 2019 to 2027. Increase in agricultural activities and rise in the demand for animal feed products are major factors anticipated to fuel the demand for phosphates in Asia Pacific during the forecast period. China and India are key countries of the phosphates market in Asia Pacific. In terms of revenue, China is projected to be an attractive market for phosphates in Asia Pacific during the forecast period, owing to abundance of phosphorus reserves, presence of manufacturers of low-cost products, significant exports, and technological superiority of China over other countries in the region
