Global phosgene market is expected to grow at a steady rate of around 5% during the forecast period. Phosgene (COCl2) is a colorless gas, with an unpleasant odor which is found in trace amounts within volcanoes. Phosgene can be synthetically manufactured and is considered highly toxic as a result of which it was used as a chemical weapon during major wars across the globe. Phosgene and its derivative find widespread applications in dyes, specialty chemicals, pharmaceuticals, and agrochemicals, among others.

The global phosgene market is driven by increasing demand from various end user industries such as chemical, construction, agriculture, textile, among others. Additionally, increasing consumption of the product in pesticides and insecticides is further expected to fuel the market, especially in the agrarian economies. Furthermore, increasing urbanization and surging population are responsible for rising use of phosgene as a cleaning agent for sanitation purposes and growing demand for basic household necessities such as bedding, cushions, pillow, among others, respectively.

The global phosgene market is segmented based on derivatives, company and region. Based on derivatives, the market can be fragmented into methyl diphenyl diisocyanate, toluene diisocyanate and polycarbonate resins. The methyl diphenyl diisocyanate is expected to dominate the market during the forecast period owing to its widespread usage in non-foam applications such as paints & coatings, sealants, and adhesives as well as in reaction injection-molding, high performance elastomers, and spandex fibers.

Regionally, the phosgene market has been segmented into various regions including Asia-Pacific, North America, South America, Europe, and Middle East & Africa. Among these regions, Asia-Pacific region dominates the overall phosgene market while Europe is anticipated to be the fastest growing market during the forecast period since markets in countries such as the UK, France, Italy, and Germany have emerged as the important consumer markets, witnessing well proliferated end-use industries and the substantial investments put into innovation and R&D activities.

The major players operating in the phosgene market are   Bayer AG, BASF SE, Wanhua Chemical Group Co. Ltd, Atul Ltd., Paushak Ltd., UPL Ltd., Vertellus Holdings LLC, VanDeMark Chemical Inc., ISOCHEM, Huntsman International, Shandong Tianan Chemicals, Covestro and others.
