Global phase transfer catalyst market is projected to grow from $ 962 million in 2018 to $ 1,234 million by 2024, exhibiting a CAGR of 5.3% during the forecast period, on account of rising demand and adoption of green chemistry in organic synthesis. Notably, a phase-transfer catalyst (PTC) is a catalyst that facilitates the migration of a reactant from one phase into another phase where reaction occurs.

Based on type, phosphonium salts segment is expected to be one of the largest contributors to global phase transfer catalyst market during the forecast period. Phosphonium salts, major type of quaternary onium salts, can tolerate high temperature fluctuations. Methyl triphenyl phosphonium bromide, ethyl triphenyl phosphonium bromide, methyl triphenyl phosphonium chloride, ethyl triphenyl phosphonium chloride, and benzyl triphenyl phosphonium chloride are some of the phosphonium salts used as phase transfer catalysts. Phosphonium salts are expensive as compared to ammonium salts.

Based on end-use industry, pharmaceuticals is anticipated to grow at the highest CAGR in global phase transfer catalyst market during the forecast period. In the pharmaceuticals industry, compounds used for drugs are generally complex multifunctional molecules, which are built up by a sequence of chemical reactions. Phase transfer catalysts are used in the pharmaceuticals industry in synthesis, R&D, drug formulation, and laboratory applications. Moreover, the imposition of stringent regulations in the western regions on the use of harmful compounds in the pharmaceuticals industry is boosting the consumption of phase transfer catalysts in the pharmaceuticals industry, as they eliminate the requirement of using organic solvents and dangerous, inconvenient, and expensive reactants. These catalysts also reduce the generation of industrial wastes. Over the coming years, pharmaceuticals end use industry is expected to register significant growth in Asia-Pacific, on account of rising demand for these catalysts from emerging economies of the region.

Asia-Pacific phase transfer catalyst market is likely to register highest CAGR during the forecast period, driven by strong demand for these catalysts from countries such as China, Japan, Australia, South Korea and India. Ongoing industrialization and flourishing end-use industries such as pharmaceuticals and agrochemicals in emerging economies such as China and India are also pushing growth of the phase transfer catalyst market in Asia-Pacific.
