Aluminum Phosphide Market

Aluminum Phosphide Market: Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends, and Forecast, 2019 - 2030

Aluminum Phosphide: Introduction

  • Aluminum phosphide is an inorganic phosphide used to control insects and rodents. Aluminum phosphide is prepared by reacting aluminum powder with elemental phosphorous.
  • Aluminum phosphide is employed as an indoor fumigant in crop transport, storage, or processing facilities for food and non-food crops. It may also be used as an outdoor fumigant for burrowing rodent and mole control.
  • Aluminum phosphide is a dark gray or dry yellow, crystalline solid. It is available in the form of pellets, tablets, and powder. When aluminum phosphide reacts with atmospheric water or rodent’s stomach acid, it generates toxic colorless phosphine gas that can kill he rodent.

Key Drivers of Aluminum Phosphide Market

  • Aluminum phosphide is used as fumigant in crop protection. Food & beverages industry accounts for major share of the global aluminum phosphide market. According to a report published by the UN 2017, global population is projected to reach 11.2 billion by 2100 as compared to 7.6 billion in 2017. With the increase in population, demand for agricultural commodities and grain storage facilities is expected to increase in the near future. The usage of aluminum phosphide as fumigant is estimated to increase in the near future in order to safeguard crops from rodents and other insects.
  • Compared to other phosphides such as zinc phosphide and calcium phosphide, hydrolysis of aluminum phosphide produces very little diphosphane. Thus, it has less chance to self-ignite in air. Therefore, aluminum phosphide is preferred as a source of phosphine compared to other phosphides such as calcium phosphide. This is one of the key drivers of the global aluminum phosphide market.

Key Restraints of Aluminum Phosphide Market

  • Aluminum phosphide is toxic and volatile. Despite this, many companies engaged in the production of aluminum phosphide claim to develop such aluminum phosphide that is poisonous to only rodents or insects and not humans. Such false claims lead to an excessive use of aluminum phosphide, which can affect the health of pest control service providers. Incidences related to the side-effects of these products on human health have been coming to light. This is estimated to hamper the aluminum phosphide market.
  • Constant exposure to aluminum phosphide for a prolonged period of time could cause acute and chronic disorders in humans. This has encouraged the shift of pest control service providers toward natural and less hazardous disinfectants such as fungicides, insecticides, and herbicides. Manufacturers of these less toxic products offer lower prices as compared to that of aluminum phosphide, zinc phosphide, and calcium phosphide. Thus, the threat of substitutes and new entrants is expected to remain moderate in the market during the forecast period.

Global Aluminum Phosphide Market:  Regional Analysis

  • Based on geography, the global aluminum phosphide market can be divided into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa. Asia Pacific is estimated to lead the market owing to rapid development in areas of food security in the region. For instance, the Government of India has allotted US$ 6.5 Mn to create onion storage facility in Maharashtra, India. Similarly, governments of countries in Asia Pacific such as Vietnam, the Philippines, and China are planning to build grain storage facilities. This is projected to boost the demand of fumigants such as aluminum phosphide.
  • Large numbers of regional players operate in the market in Asia Pacific, considering many countries in the region are based on agriculture. Additionally, the region is known for its technological advancement and its quick adoption. Furthermore, lower manufacturing cost vis-à-vis manufacturers based in North America and Europe is estimated to act as competitive advantage for key players in Asia Pacific.
  • Led by a strong regulatory environment, the market in Europe is expected to expand at a rapid pace during the forecast period. On the other hand, North America is anticipated to be a large-scale consumer of aluminum phosphide.
