Paraxylene Market Investigation and Growth Forecasted Until the End of 2024

Published: Thu Jun 06 2019

Paraxylene is an aromatic hydrocarbon, which is used as feedstock to manufacture industrial chemicals, notably purified terephthalic acid (PTA) and dimethyl terephthalate (DMT). PTA and DMT are further employed in the manufacture of polyethylene terephthalate (PET) polyester. PET is used to produce bottles, which are widely used as containers for soda, water, and other beverages due to the superior physical attributes of PET. PET is shatter resistant, strong, and light in weight.

PET/Polyester is available in various forms such as filaments, staple, and fiberfill. It is used in clothing, furnishings, and technical textiles. Polyester is mostly preferred over cotton and other natural fibers due to its low cost and easy availability. PET possesses high strength-to-weight ratio and is non-reactive to food and beverages. It is a transparent thermoplastic; therefore, it is preferred in food packaging. Demand for PET is expected to increase in the F&B packaging market due to the rise in population, changing lifestyle, and growth in disposal income. This is anticipated to drive the paraxylene market in Asia Pacific. Fuelled by significant gains, PTA and PET producers in Asia Pacific have started to expand rapidly, the production capacity which is likely to exceed the demand in the next few years.

This study examines, estimates, and forecasts the global paraxylene market in terms of volume (kilo tons) and revenue (US$ Mn) from 2015 to 2024.
