Europe Phosgene Market Size – USD 4,433.9 Million in 2020, Growth - CAGR of 4.6%, Trends – The rising demand for Europe Phosgene in the Specialty Chemicals

The Global Europe Phosgene Market is forecast to reach USD 6,389.0 Million by 2028, according to a new report by Reports and Data. Europe Phosgene can be defined as an organic compound with the chemical formula COCl2. In regards to its traits, it is colorless; in low concentrations, its scent is similar to freshly cut hay or grass. The organic compound is an important industrial building block, in particular for the manufacturing of polycarbonate plastics and urethanes. However, it is highly poisonous and became used as a chemical weapon for in World War I, wherein it was accountable for 85,000 deaths. Along with its industrial manufacturing, in a limited amount, it occurs from the disintegration and the combustion of organochlorine compounds. Industrially, the compound is produced by passing chlorine gas and purified carbon monoxide through a layer of porous activated carbon that acts as a catalyst. When chlorinated hydrocarbon compounds are exposed to high temperatures, the organic compound can also be formed. Substances that are, at times, created or used industry that contain the elements carbon, hydrogen, and chlorine are chlorinated hydrocarbon compounds. The significant portion of Europe Phosgene is to produce isocyanates, the most essential being methylene diphenyl diisocyanate (MDI) and toluene diisocyanate (TDI). These are precursors to polyurethanes. Thus, the wide arena of application and expanding end-user industries are supporting the growth of the sector.

  • In regards to End-use, the Agrochemicals segment held a considerable share of the market of more than 25.0% in 2020, with a CAGR of 4.8% during the forecast period. The continuous expansion of the agriculture sector and applicability of the organic compound in insecticides contributes to the market share held by this segment.   

Market Overview:

Consumers are placing a higher importance on sustainability and, as a result, are choosing items based on factors like circularity and carbon footprint. Furthermore, consumer concern about carbon emissions has prompted increased investment in renewable energy, energy efficiency, and transportation decarbonization. These developments have had considerable impact on chemical end sectors, particularly in the automobile and construction industries. COVID-19 has exacerbated the situation by lowering the automobile and construction industries (as well as many others) and disrupting current supply lines.
