Triethyl Phosphate Market: Introduction
Triethyl Phosphate (TEP) is a colorless, corrosive, mild odor solvent with chemical formula (C2H5)3PO4 which is also known as Phosphoric acid triethyl ester. The compound is primarily used as a catalyst in the production of acetic anhydride by ketene process, as a solvent and plasticizer for resins, plastics, gums, etc. TEP is also used as a raw material in the synthesis of insecticides such as tetraethyl pyrophosphate. TEP can be prepared by various processes, by reacting tetraethyl hypophosphate with ethanol in the presence of aluminum ethoxide, by treating triethylphosphite with diethyl hydrogen phosphate and also by diethyl ether and phosphorus pentoxide via a metaphosphate intermediate.
Triethyl Phosphate Market: Dynamics
With the rising demand for the use of plasticizers for production of resins, plastics and gums, the Triethyl phosphate market growth is expected to be benefited from the potential since the chemicals serves as a good example of plasticizer to produce varied types of polymer. Also, Triethyl Phosphate consumption is also understood to gain from increasing demand of fire retardant material from various end use industries such as construction, textiles, electrical and electronics, transportation, automobiles, etc. Apart from industrial chemicals, another end use industry which is expected to augment the growth of Triethyl Phosphate is agrochemicals industry with the use of Triethyl Phosphate as an ingredient i.e. an intermediate for manufacturing of pesticides and insecticides.
The regulations related with safety standards and resultant hazards generating from synthetic chemicals also applies in the case of Triethyl Phosphate, where its controlled formulation and usage may result as a restraint to the rate of overall consumption. Moreover, with the availability of substitutes, Triethyl Phosphate’s can be confined only to certain applications.
Triethyl Phosphate Market: Covid-19 Impact Assessment
With the ongoing pandemic of Covid-19 across the globe, industrial economy has been affected to a considerable extent with disruption of supply chain and resulting demand and supply in a reduced state. The same also holds true for the chemical industry including triethyl phosphate wherein reduced production of plastics and agrochemicals in the initial quarters of 2020 has impacted the growth of triethyl phosphate to a tepid rate. However, with regional governments taking initiatives to recovery of economic growth and improving the industrial sector performance, the triethyl phosphate is expected to achieve the desirable growth in the upcoming 3-4 quarters in wake of growth of industrial chemicals industry.
