Phosphorus trichloride is also used as a reagent in organic synthesis. Phosphorus trichloride is used to convert secondary and primary alcohols into carboxylic acids and alkyl chlorides. Furthermore, phosphorus trichloride can be used to manufacture gasoline additives, surfactants, textile finishing agents and medicinal products among others. Phosphorus trichloride is toxic, with a concentration of 600 ppm being lethal to animals and plants. Phosphorus trichloride is classified as corrosive and toxic under EU Directive.
The growth in glyphosate herbicide market is increasing the global consumption of phosphorus trichloride. The consumption of phosphorus trichloride is growing in excess of demand for other phosphorus chemicals. The increase in demand from fertilizer industry is expected to be a major driving factor for the growth of phosphorus trichloride market. The global phosphorus trichloride demand is increasing due to growing food demand and increase in world population. In addition, increasing consumption of oil additives from emerging economies of Latin America and Asia Pacific is expected to increase the consumption of phosphorus trichloride. However, availability of substitutes and government regulations could hamper the growth of this market.
Asia Pacific is currently the fastest growing market for phosphorus trichloride followed by North America and Europe.
