Paraxylene Market (By End User: Packaging, Polyester Fiber, and Others; By Application: Purified Terephthalic Acid (PTA), Dimethyl-Terephthalate (DMT), Di-Paraxylene (DI-PX), and Others; By Geography: North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific and RoW) Global Scenario, Market Size, Outlook, Trend and Forecast, 2015 – 2024
Global Paraxylene Market is expected to reach $79.3 billion by 2024 growing at a CAGR of 9.7% from 2016 to 2024. Paraxylene, also known as p-xylene, is a chemical essential for producing a diverse range of polyethylene terephthalate (PET) and fiber consumer products. It is mostly used for the production of fiber, film, and bottle resins, while it is also used in small amount as solvent and to produce herbicides, and di-paraxylene. PET bottles are widely used for water and carbonated beverages owing to its non-breakage properties and carbon dioxide barrier properties. Moreover, technological advancements have enabled the development of new process and reconfigure the aromatics complex to increase production capacity.
Increasing demand for polyesters, growing application segments, increased conservation efficiency, and low manufacturing cost are the key factors driving the growth of the global paraxylene market. However, increasing popularity of bio-based products, and complex formation process could be a major hindrance for the market growth. Furthermore, technological advancements and market expansion would create growth opportunities in coming years.
