“Paraxylene Market”
Paraxylene Market Information: By Application (Terephthalic Acid, Purified Terephthalic Acid, And Dimethyl Terephthalate), End-Use Industry (Textile, Packaging, And Others), By Region: Forecast Till 2023

Market Overview

Paraxylene also known as P-Xylene is an aromatic hydrocarbon and isomer of xylene compound, which is derived from dimethylbenzene. It is used in terephthalic acid, purified terephthalic acid, and dimethyl terephthalate. Purified terephthalic acid is majorly used in the production of polyethylene terephthalate. Applications of paraxylene are increasing in major end-user industries such as textile and packaging for food, beverages, and personal care products.

The demand for paraxylene is driven by the growing apparel and textile industry across the regions.  The use of PET is rising in the textile industry due to its recyclability, which reduces the amount of energy consumed while producing fibers. Furthermore, growing packaging industry across the globe is another factor driving the growth of the global paraxylene market. Surging demand for the packaged food and beverages from the working population owing to convenience and longer shelf life is uplifting the market growth. Paraxylene consumption is growing in cosmetics and personal care industry with increasing focus on the consumer on their personal appearance. Moreover, growing demand for polymers from the major end user industries is propelling the market growth.

Some of the major trends noticed among the market players are acquisitions and licensing agreements for business expansion. For instance, in February 2018, British Petroleum (BP) and SOCAR TURKEY ENERGI A.S entered into a licensing agreement for the BP’s purified acid technology. This technology will reduce the amount required for capital investment and improve energy efficiency. However, growing environmental regulations regarding the use of the petrochemicals may hamper the growth of global paraxylene market.
