The black phosphorus market is projected to grow considerably during the forecast period

Black phosphorus has been used to make significant advances in optoelectronics. Black phosphorus' remarkable optical properties make it useful in photovoltaic systems, LEDs, and photodetectors. With the increasing demand for sophisticated optoelectronic devices, black phosphorus is expected to play a major role in these applications. Black phosphorus has unique electronic and optical properties that are advantageous for advanced electrical devices and optoelectronic applications. These characteristics include an adjustable bandgap and high carrier mobility. This includes components such as transistors, photodetectors, and LEDs. A growing number of industries are finding use for black phosphorus, which is propelling market growth as demand for high-performance and energy-efficient electronic components increases.

Increasing research and investment

The global black phosphorus industry benefits from investments in application-specific research and the development of new materials. The potential of black phosphorus is being actively explored by academic institutions, research facilities, and commercial enterprises. This is leading to advancements in synthesis techniques, scalable manufacturing methods, and a better understanding of its characteristics. This body of knowledge is necessary for the material to become commercially viable and to have a greater variety of applications.

Investments in start-ups and businesses related to black phosphorus as well as collaborations between academics and businesses provide the resources required to advance the development and commercialization of goods based on the substance. These research-based endeavours are contributing to the growth and diversification of the global black phosphorus industry.

Expanding electronics industry

Black phosphorus' outstanding electrical and optical properties have attracted a lot of attention and are a driving force in the global market. The material's excellent electrical conductivity, tunable bandgap, and high carrier mobility would be advantageous for next-generation electronic devices. In addition, among other optoelectronic applications, it performs exceptionally well in photovoltaics, LEDs, and photodetectors. The benefits that black phosphorus provides have led to its widespread use in cutting-edge technologies. The material's demand has surged due to increased utilization, creating new opportunities in the market, particularly in the electronics and optoelectronics sectors. Black phosphorus is expected to play a key role in these applications as sectors like consumer electronics, data centres, and telecommunications grow and look for ways to perform better.

Increasing use of powder form in semiconductors and electronic products

The powder segment of the global black phosphorus market is one of the fastest-growing segments. Powdered black phosphorus is becoming more and more popular because of its many applications in optoelectronics, electronics, and energy storage. Its unique qualities—such as high carrier mobility and a programmable bandgap—have made it highly sought-after in the semiconductor, photoelectronic, and battery industries. The growing need for next-generation electronic devices and the advancement of cutting-edge technologies like flexible electronics and quantum computing are also driving the market for powdered black phosphorus. The material's exceptional performance in a variety of applications and its potential to create high-performance devices are important growth drivers.

Increasing demand for high-performance and energy-efficient electronic devices

The demand for innovative materials like black phosphorus is being driven by advancements in fields like artificial intelligence (AI), data centres, and 5G technology, as well as the growing need for high-performance and energy-efficient electronic devices. North America has dominated the global market for black phosphorus. As these sectors grow, the black phosphorus market in North America is likely to rise significantly. For example, in 2022, Alchemy Technology Group, the industry leader in IT advice, consultancy, and reseller services, partnered with Phosphorus, the leading manufacturer of proactive and all-encompassing security for the extended Internet of Things (IoT).

Increasing demand for energy storage and sensor application

The increasing need for black phosphorus in energy storage and sensor applications is the main driver of this growth. Among the gases released by refineries are sulfur dioxide, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), nitrogen oxide, chlorine, and benzene. Increased conduction upon exposure to nitrogen dioxide and high sensitivity in detecting NO2 at as low as five parts per billion are provided by black phosphorus sensors. Humans' ability to breathe may be impacted by excessive VOC inhalation. Leukaemia, cancer, eye issues, headaches, respiratory issues, skin irritation, nausea, congenital disabilities, and headaches can all be brought on by some of these gases. The need for gas sensors in refineries is growing as a result of the necessity to monitor and identify these dangerous gases.

Asia Pacific is projected to grow at a high rate during the forecast period

High economic growth is the primary cause of the market growth, which is then attributed to significant investment in the electronics, automotive, healthcare, and safety sectors. The Asia Pacific region is seeing a shift in demand due to economic constraints and market saturation in North America and Europe. This area is home to important R&D facilities in addition to being a manufacturing hub. Because of the growing manufacturing sector, bettering living standards, and favourable economic conditions, the automotive industry is predicted to expand in the emerging economies of the Asia Pacific.

Market key launches

  • In April 2022, PHOSPHEA announced the release of HumIPHORA, a ground-breaking invention in the phosphate industry. Six years of internal research and development went into creating this novel, patented mineral complex, which satisfies the demands of the broiler market. The European Animal Feed Register has his calcium monophosphate listed (008979-EN). Black phosphorus is the first phosphate on the market that offers high-quality phosphorus while helping to improve the utilization of other nutrients, particularly phosphorus derived from plants. This is by using its chelation qualities to influence a few antinutritional factors. Compared to other conventional sources available on the market, HumIPHORA lowers the incorporation of phosphate in formulas.
  • In March 2021, the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences, Universitas Indonesia (FMIPA-UI) and Merck, a renowned science and technology company, formed a strategic partnership to establish the first Collaboration Laboratory between the two organizations. This partnership aims to advance life science research and innovation development in Indonesia. The collaboration aims to strengthen research in the fields of environmental monitoring, chemical analysis, microbiology, and molecular biology as well as innovations in food, agriculture, and waste management. It is expected to provide IDR 3 billion worth of cutting-edge laboratory tools, equipment, and expertise.
