Phosphorus and its derivatives have a large number of applications that range from fertilizers, detergents, food industry, water treatment chemicals, metal finishing and flame retardants. Phosphorus, one of the important nutrients for plant growth, makes fertilizers the most important application of phosphorus and its derivatives. According to industry estimates, the global demand for phosphorus fertilizers is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 2.24% during the next five years. Detergents cover the second highest market share in phosphorus and its derivatives market. However, the government in developed countries has imposed restrictions in the use of phosphorus in detergents due to environmental implications. This has restricted the growth of phosphorus in detergents, but only in developed countries.

Phosphorus has a number of derivatives, of which, ammonium phosphates holds the maximum market share. This is followed by other important derivatives such as industrial phosphates, phosphoric acid, phosphorus chloride, phosphorus pentasulfide and phosphorus pentoxide.

Yellow phosphorus, an elemental form of phosphorus, is made from rock phosphate by electrothermal process. This is a precursor to derivatives such as thermal phosphoric acid, phosphorus chlorides, phosphorus sulfides, etc. The major yellow phosphorus producing countries such as China, U.S., Kazakhstan, and Vietnam cover most of the world production.
