Phthalic Anhydride is the first anhydride of dicarboxylic acid to be used commercially. The primary use of phthalic anhydride is as a chemical intermediate in the production of plastics from vinyl chloride. A majority of phthalic anhydride demand in the country is due to its application in the manufacture of phthalic plasticizers. Manufacture of alkyd resins is another important use of phthalic anhydride in the country, which is used in the production of paints and lacquers, insect repellents, and urethane polyester is another important source of demand for phthalic anhydride in India (check this!). The western region of India is the leading consumer of phthalic anhydride, accounting for a major portion of the domestic demand. Northern and southern regions are other important consumers of phthalic anhydride, recording significant growth rates in the recent years.

PA is expected to witness sustained growth in demand in India driven by expansion in capacities of all downstream users in the country such as paints, PVC, transportation, construction, plastic products, textile dyes and printing inks in the country. A small portion of the domestic demand has to be met through imports as the country has fixed export obligations. Fluctuations in the prices of PAN have been recorded in the past 5 years caused primarily due to variable price movements of Ortho-Xylene, the principle feedstock of PA, in the international market.

A majority of globally produced Ortho-Xylene is used for the manufacture of phthalic anhydride. Year-to-year growth is expected to be double of the global growth rate of PAN. The strong global demand for phthalate plasticizers is the major driver for the growing consumption of PAN. It will be the same story in India as the growing demand of phthalate plasticizers in the production of polyvinyl chloride (PVC) and unsaturated polyester resins in the manufacturing of fiberglass-reinforced plastic (FRP) is expected to drive the market in the coming years.
