Phosgene Market Outlook - 2022–2031

The global phosgene market size was valued at $39.2 billion in 2021, and is projected to reach $65.4 billion by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 5.3% from 2022 to 2031.

COVID-19 outbreak had negative impact on global phosgene market owing to its dependence on agrochemicals and fine chemicals. According to the International Monetary Fund (IMF), owing to the outbreak of novel coronavirus (COVID-19), the global economy shrunk by 3.0% in 2020. Many countries are under strict lockdowns, which have forced several sectors to shut down their operations. This has halted manufacturing activities and reduced the demand and production of phosgene.

Phosgene is a colorless gas with chemical formula COCl2. It is produced by reacting chlorine and carbon monoxide. In general, a small amount of phosgene is released in nature from volcanoes. It is mainly produced artificially and is extremely toxic and thus, it was even used as a chemical weapon during wars. Phosgene is used for deriving a number of chemical compounds used in various industrial sectors.

The increased usage of phosgene in production of diethyl carbomoyl chloride, which is further utilized to hydrolyze water insoluble compound that acts as an intermediate for the production of pharmaceuticals, pesticides and dyes, accelerates the growth of the phosgene market. Rise in utilization for platinum, plutonium, uranium and niobium metal extraction and its wide use in chemical such as beryllium chloride, aluminum chloride and boron trichloride further influence the growth of the phosgene market. In addition, growth of pharmaceutical sector, increase in R&D activities, rise in need for enhanced treatments, and surge in investments positively affect the phosgene market growth. In the chemical industry, phosgene is widely used for production of aromatic di-isocyanates such as toluene diisocyanate (TDI) and methylene diphenyl diisocyanate (MDI), which are precursors for production of polyurethanes and some polycarbonates. Surge in demand for flexible polyurethane foams in applications such as furniture and as a cushioning material in automobiles and furniture, is expected to drive the demand for TDI during the forecast period.

However, exposure to phosgene may cause irritation to eyes, dry burning throat, vomiting, cough, foamy sputum, breathing difficulty, and chest pain. In addition, workers of various industries such as chemical, agrochemical, and pharmaceutical may suffer from exposure to phosgene. The level of exposure depends upon the dose, duration, and work being done. This factor is anticipated to restrain the growth of the phosgene market during the forecast period. 
On the contrary, according to the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), the global food demand is expected to increase 
from 50.0% to 90.0% by 2050, owing to expected increase in the global population by 2,300.0 million people, between 2009 and 2050. The global food production needs are expected to increase by about 70.0% by 2050 to meet the growth in food demand due to increase in population globally. This implies that there must be a significant increase in the production of certain food commodities. For instance, the production of cereals must reach around 3,000.0 million metric tons by 2050, an increase from nearly 2,100.0 million metric tons in 2018. The increased demand for food security has surged the production of several agrochemicals such as pesticides and herbicides, where phosgene gas is widely used for pesticide manufacturing and is anticipated to offer new growth opportunity in the phosgene market. 

The phosgene market is segmented on the basis of derivative, application, and region. On the basis of derivative, the market is categorized into isocyanates, chloroformates, and carbamoyl chlorides. By application, it is classified into agrochemicals, pharmaceuticals, polycarbonates, dyes, fine chemicals, and others.
