Phosphated Ester Market Projected Growth Rate (2022-2032)

6.7% CAGR

Phosphated esters are group of organophosphate compounds generally manufactured from the reaction between alcohol and phosphoric acid. They act as active anionic surfactants and are being used for multitude of applications on account of their stability over a broad pH range, better solubility and corrosion inhibiting properties.

Growing adoption of phosphated esters as lubricants, fire retardants, surfactants and pesticides is providing a major impetus to the growth of phosphated ester market.

Phosphated esters are among the most commonly utilized fire resistant basestocks in several applications including hydraulic systems, compressors and turbines. Owing to their high ignition temperatures, anti-wear property and excellent oxidation stability, they are being increasingly added to consumer and industrial products where they reduce flammability.

Factors such as increasing sales of automotive, growing focus towards safety and rising demand for agrochemicals will continue to generate growth opportunities for the phosphated ester manufacturers during the forecast period.

Which are Some Prominent Drivers Spearheading Phosphated Ester Market Growth?

Rising demand for superior lubricant additives in automotive and industrial sectors, increasing government initiatives and growing adoption of phosphated esters as fire retardants and plasticizers are some of the major factors driving the phosphated ester market.

Phosphated esters have become ideal candidates for the production of various essential products such as lubricants and pesticides. They are being increasingly utilized across diverse industries due to their versatile properties. Driven by this, sales of phosphated ester are projected to rise at a robust pace during the forecast period.

Increase in the number of fire incidence coupled with rising shift towards non-halogenated retardants has ushered in a new light into the phosphated ester market and the trend is likely to continue in the future. Phosphated esters are being extensively used as fire retardants on account of their higher ignition temperature and self-extinguishing properties.

Similarly, growing adoption of phosphated ester as agrochemicals additives is creating growth opportunities within the global phospahted ester market. With the rapidly rising world population, demand for food is at its peak. Farmers are continuously using novel technologies, fertilizers and pesticides to protect their crops as well as to increase their production. This in turn is creating sales prospects for phosphate ester.

In addition, exponential growth of automotive industry coupled with surging demand for high performance lubricants is anticipated to continue supporting the growth of phosphated ester market during the assessment period. Phosphated esters are being increasingly used as additives in a variety of lubricant formulations as anti-wear additives, stabilizers, antioxidants, extreme pressure additives and metal passivators.

Leading manufacturers are also shifting their preference towards developing bio-based esters to meet the rising demand from various industries. This will further expand the size of phosphated ester market in the future.
