Phosphoric Acid Market - Overview

Phosphorus acid is also known as orthophosphoric acid, and it is used in the manufacture of the fertilizers.At the industrial level, phosphoric acid is produced by two methods: the thermal process and the wet process.

The wet process method is predominantly used in the commercial sector.The more expensive thermal process method produces a purer product, which is used in the food industry.

In wet process, phosphoric acid is produced from the phosphate rock.The process involves addition of concentrated sulfuric acid into a series of well-stirred reactors.

The thermal process method requires raw materials such as elemental (yellow) phosphorus, air, and water for the production of phosphoric acid. The following steps are a part of the thermal process method: combustion, hydration, and demisting.

Based on application, the market for phosphoric acid can be divided into fertilizers, food additives, animal feed, and others.Fertilizers is the key application segment of the global phosphoric acid market.

The fertilizers segment can be sub-divided into diammonium phosphate (DAP), monoammonium phosphate (MAP), and trisodium phosphate (TSP), and others.DAP is the major sub-segment of the fertilizers segment.

It is followed by the animal feed segment.Phosphoric acid is the key ingredient of animal feed.

Phosphorous acts as a building block not only for plants, but also for humans and animals. Most notably, phosphorus aids in a variety of cell functions to build strong bones and teeth. It contributes to several other biological processes. Phosphorus is the key ingredient of animal feeds such as monocalcium phosphate (MCP) and dicalcium phosphate (DCP). Phosphate animal feeds play a critical role in maintaining livestock healthy.

Based on region, the global phosphoric acid market has been segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa.Asia Pacific dominates the global phosphoric acid market.
