Aug 2021. Phosphoric acid (H3PO4) is the leading inorganic acid produced and consumed in terms of production value and is the second largest in terms of volume—after sulfuric acid. By far its greatest use is in the manufacture of phosphate chemicals consumed primarily as carriers of phosphorus values in fertilizers. Use in the production of animal feeds is of secondary importance. Phosphoric acid is also used in the manufacture of phosphate chemicals for use in water treatment and detergent builders, dentifrices, fire control chemicals, and a host of smaller markets. Consumption of phosphoric acid for its acid properties is relatively small (e.g., treatment of metal surfaces, beverage acidulation). Phosphoric acid is the leading intermediate product or processing step between phosphate rock and the end markets for phosphorus in phosphate form. The supply/demand balance for phosphoric acid is demand driven. If all the announced projects materialize, operating rates will decline. Emerging regions are heavily investing in downstream phosphate fertilizer production units. As a result, it is expected that older phosphoric acid production units in regions without indigenous phosphate rock reserves will come under additional pressure and will eventually be forced to close.
