Calcium Hypophosphite Is Estimated To Witness High Growth Owing To Increased Applications In Flame Retardants


The calcium hypophosphite market is estimated to be valued at US$ 225.4 Mn in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 5.8% over the forecast period 2023 to 2030, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.

Market Overview:
Calcium hypophosphite is an inorganic compound used mainly as a flame retardant and fungicide. It is used as a flame retardant in wood products, plastics, polymers, and textiles. It prevents spontaneous combustion by reacting chemically with fire to form a protective layer over the material’s surface.

Market Dynamics:
The Calcium Hypophosphite Market Growth is attributed mainly to two key drivers –
Increased use of calcium hypophosphite as a flame retardant in a variety of applications such as furnishings, coatings, polymers due to stringent fire safety regulations across industries. It provides effective protection against combustion by generating an insulating char layer when exposed to fire or heat.
Higher demand from the agriculture sector as a fungicide for crops. Calcium hypophosphite acts as an effective fungicide due to its antibacterial and antifungal properties. It is used to control various fungal diseases in crops.

SWOT Analysis

Strength: Calcium hypophosphite has wide application in food, agriculture and chemical industries. It is stable and easy to transport. It acts as an effective fungicide for agriculture. Manufacturers have well established supply chains for smooth distribution.
