The global Phosphoric Acid market stood nearby 45 million tonnes in 2021 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 4.04% during the forecast period until 2032.

The primary market driving factor for the growth of Phosphoric Acid market is its application in Fertilizers Industry. In 2021, the Fertilizers industry consumed approximately 80% of the Phosphoric Acid and is anticipated to dominate the Phosphoric Acid market in the forecast period. The most popular phosphatic fertilizers include diammonium phosphate (DAP), monoammonium phosphate (MAP), NPKs, and SSP. DAP is an excellent source of phosphate and nitrogen for plant nutrition. The ideal ratio of phosphorus and nitrogen is supplied by growing cereals like grain, fruits, cereals, and veggies. DAP in turn enhances soil's fertility thus making the crop production more efficient. The Phosphoric Acid market demand is expected to reach approximately 72 million tonnes by 2032.

Phosphoric acid is an inorganic compound with formula H3PO4. It is also called orthophosphoric acid. It is a non-volatile, flavourless, colourless syrupy liquid. By using a wet method or a thermal process, phosphate ores can be converted into phosphoric acid, or H3PO4. These two ores are Fluorapatite and Francolite. The wet method is used to produce majority of the phosphoric acid worldwide. Reaction, filtration, and concentration stages comprise the wet process. Phosphoric acid is majorly employed to manufacture fertilizers. The chemical reaction of phosphoric acid with ground rock phosphate results in triple superphosphate (TSP). MAP and DAP are other fertilizers which are produced by reaction between phosphoric acid and ammonia.

Based on region, Asia Pacific is dominating across all the areas around the globe, with a consumption of about 50% of the global Phosphoric Acid in 2021. In order to achieve high rate of crop production, fertilizer use is increasing in China and India due to the rapid growth in population. This can be linked to the region's agriculture industry's high volume fertilizer requirement. Based on this, it is anticipated that Asia Pacific's demand for phosphoric acid as a raw fertilizer ingredient should rise during the projection period. North America and Europe are also prominent consumers. Increase in the usage of this acid as food additives and animal feed is anticipated to surge the demand of global Phosphoric Acid in the upcoming years. Middle East region is leading in terms of producing Phosphoric Acid. It is mainly due to abundance of mineral phosphorous in this region which is the leading cause of high production of Phosphoric Acid.

Based on the end-user industry, the global Phosphoric Acid market is segmented into Fertilizers, Feed and Food Additives, and Others. The Fertilizers industry is dominating the Phosphoric Acid market. It is anticipated that this sector will maintain its position owing to growing demand of crops with the fast-growing population across the globe. Other applications of Phosphoric Acid as a Food Additive is also an impressive sector which will further fuel the Phosphoric Acid demand in the forecast period.

Major producers in the production of Global Phosphoric Acid market are OCP Group, Mosaic Company, IFFCO, Nutrien, Ma'aden, J.R. Simplot Company, ICL-YTH Group, Wengfu Group Co., Ltd., ICL(Rotem), Indorama (Industries Chimiques du Senegal), PhosAgro, Foskor Group, Rotem Amfert Negev Ltd., Yara, Coromandal International limited, JIFCO, and Indo Maroc Phosphore SA (IMACID).
