Oxidation reaction takes place by addition reaction, So3 in unstable state it require pressure to with hold, hence it require higher pressure.

Oxidation of SO2 +O2= SO3 is exothermic reaction reaction.

To increase SO3 concentration temperature to be kept low says by Le-chatelier's principle.

On increasing pressure the reaction shift where the number of mole decrease.

According to Le-chatelier's principle here left to right no of moles decrease.

On increasing pressure the reaction shift where the number of mole decrease.
