Scope and Importance:
Phosphorus can reduce elemental iodine to hydroiodic acid, which is a reagent effective for reducing ephedrine or pseudoephedrine to methamphetamine. For this reason, red and white phosphorus were designated by the United States Drug Enforcement Administration as List I precursor chemicals under 21 CFR 1310.02 effective on November 17, 2001. As a result, in the United States, handlers of red or white phosphorus are subject to stringent regulatory controls.
Phosphorus is a nonmetallic chemical element, symbol is P and atomic number is 15. As organic it is always present on oxidized state and as in-organic it exists as phosphate rocks. The red phosphorus and white phosphorus are two major forms of this element, where, later is known as Lucifer because of its light emitting property upon exposure to oxygen. The existence on earth is minimal because of its high reactivity. The word "phosphorescence", means subsequent radiance illumination, primitively acquires from this quality of phosphorus, although then after this word is used for different physical processes.
Predominant variety of fertilizers is phosphorous and the applications of organo-phosphorus compounds in detergents, pesticides, nerve agents and matches.
Phosphorous in crucial component of nucleic acids, and cell membranes are formed by the aid of phospholipids. To understand the bond between phosphorus and life the early phosphorus was isolated from human urine and ash of human bones which was a chief source of phosphorus.
The global supplements market is growing at a steady rate, majorly due to increasing consumer awareness about preventive healthcare. Mineral supplements are consumed in different forms, such as capsules, pills, powder, gel caps, granules, tablets, and liquid. Mineral supplements such as calcium, phosphorus, chromium, magnesium, sulfur, iron, zinc, folic acid, silicon, copper, and cobalt help consumers of different age groups to stay healthy and be free from nutrition deficiency diseases. Due to busy lifestyle, many working individuals are unable to follow a regular diet, leading to deficiency of nutrients, including minerals in the body. In order to address the need for nutrients and prevent mineral-deficiency diseases, individuals consume additional food supplements, including mineral supplements. With increasing awareness about daily nutritional requirements, more consumers are expected to start consuming mineral supplements in the coming years thus driving the mineral supplements market.
Increasing age has adverse effects on the digestive organs, thus making it difficult in absorbing all the required nutrients from food. With growing age, people also tend to eat less due to loss of appetite. As a result, aging individuals do not get optimal amounts of minerals and other nutrients. Hence, they resort to additional supplements for proper nourishment. Among old age people, weakening of bones, poor eyesight, and poor digestive system are some of the common conditions. In order to remain fit and desired to live long, their dependency towards mineral supplements is growing.
North America holds majority of the market for mineral supplements, followed by Asia Pacific and Europe. During forecasted period (2014-2020), mineral supplements market in Asia Pacific is expected to witness fastest growth rates owing to its increasing aging population and sustainable increase in disposable income.
The mineral supplements market is bifurcated into application (food and beverages, pharmaceutical, and others) and end user (adult women, adult men, senior citizen, and others). The global market for mineral supplements in value term grew from USD 7.3 million in 2010 to USD 8.9 million in 2013. Usage of mineral supplements in the pharmaceutical sector (largest application segment in 2013) is projected to increase to USD 6.9 million in 2020, at a CAGR of 7.1%. Also, Usage of mineral supplements by adult women (largest end user in 2013) is projected to increase from USD 3.4 million in 2014 at a CAGR of 7.5% during 2014-2020.
