The global demand for phosphorus and its derivatives is anticipated to grow by 2.40% to reach 107.5 million metric tons by 2018. Gains will be fueled by increasing population, and the demand for more food production. Also, increasing demand in phosphorus applications such as flame retardants and new opportunities such as rechargeable lithium iron phosphate batteries will drive the phosphorus market.

Higher and faster yields of crops require phosphorus fertilizers as it is a basic nutrient for plant growth. This has made fertilizers the most important application of phosphorus and its derivatives market. Fertilizers are followed by detergent applications of phosphorus and its derivatives. Government bodies of developed countries have imposed regulations on the use of phosphorus in detergents that restricts the growth in the developing countries.

Phosphorus forms a number of derivatives, of which ammonium phosphates has the highest market share. Its use in fertilizers has been driving its demand. Other important phosphorus derivatives include industrial phosphates (sodium, calcium, potassium, aluminum, and magnesium phosphates), phosphoric acid, phosphorus chlorides, phosphorus pentasulfied and phosphorus pentoxide.

Yellow phosphorus is an intermediate in the production of phosphorus derivatives. Its production is highly energy intensive with electricity playing a major role in the cost of production. The major countries that produce yellow phosphorus are China, U.S., Kazakhastan, and Vietnam.

Major players in this market are OCP Sa (Morocco), The Mosaic Company (U.S.), PotashCorp (Canada), EuroChem (Russia), PhosAgro (Russa), Vale S.A. (Brazil), Isreal Chemicals Limited (Isreal), Prayon group (Belgium), Innophos Holding Inc. (U.S.) and United Phosphorus Limited (India). A number of Chinese players such as Yuntianhua Group Co. Ltd, Jiangyin Chengxing Industrial Group Co. Ltd, and Hubei Xingfa Chemicals Group Co. Ltd operate in this market.

Asia has been identified as the largest market as well as the highest growing in the next five years among all regional markets. Asia has emerged as an important consumer with China being the largest producer and consumer while India accounts for the largest imports of phosphorus and its derivatives. The need to be self sufficient in meeting domestic food demands has been driving the consumption of phosphorus in terms of fertilizers and crop protection chemicals. The other regions covered are Americas (constituting North America and South America), Europe, Africa, Oceania and the Middle East.

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation.

Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.
