China has abundant phosphorus resources, accounting for 40% of the world phosphate production capacity. Sodium tripolyphosphate (STPP) is one of the downstream products of phosphate. It has a strong emulsification effect on lubricating oils & fats, and can be used as a detergent builder and used to adjust the pH value of soap. Besides, it can also be used as sequestrant, thickener and texturizer in the food industry.

STPP can be used in convenience foods and the fast food industry to increase the shelf life of the products and another emerging use of STTP is that it can inhibit the growth of bacteria and other harmful microorganisms.

Demand of STPP is increasing due to its wide applications in the above fields. Global sodium tripolyphosphate consumption was more than 3 million tons in 2015, with a CAGR growth of 1.55%.

In terms of consumption, Asia Pacific is the leading market of the sodium tripolyphosphate, followed by North America. Latin America, Middle East and Africa are likely to record positive sales during the forecast period due to the growth in end-user industries such as construction and food & beverages.

According to UN Comtrade, the export volume of Sodium Tripolyphosphate (STPP) reached 525.7 million kilograms in 58 countries and regions in 2016. China, Belgium, Russia became the top 3 exporter countries, counting for 81.1% of global total export, while the export volume of China was 3.47 times higher than the second largest export country.
