Paraxylene Market Overview


In 2020, the Paraxylene Market Size is estimated to value at USD 81.02 Billion and is predicted to grow at a CAGR of 12.05% during the forecast period.


Paraxylene is a colorless, toxic, sweet-smelling, or highly flammable aromatic hydrocarbon that is produced from catalytic reforming or thermal cracking of naphtha. This is also known as dimethyl benzene or p- xylene or PX. This is used in the manufacturing process of Purified Terephthalic Acid (PTA) and dimethyl terephthalate (DMT) which are further used as polyester fiber, film, and resin. The manufacturing process of paraxylene includes a mixture of benzene, xylene, and toluene, conversion of naphtha into BTX, and the separation of PX bt fractional crystallization. 


PX is a type of petrochemical, its polyester is used in various industrial applications like textile manufacturing and packaging.  It is also used as a solvent and as being the raw material to manufacture the Di-PX and herbicides. Moreover, Paraxylene is also used in various household products like curtain fabrics, containers for cosmetics & toiletries, clothing, and upholstery. The development of bio-based paraxylene is accelerating the growth of the market.


COVID-19 Analysis:


In 2020, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, most of the business sectors are drastically impacted. Some of the major sectors impacted are automobiles, food & beverages, semiconductor & electronics, agriculture, and aerospace & defense. As usual, the Paraxylene Market is also negatively impacted by COVID-19. Purified Terephthalic acid (PTA), is used to produce polyester coating resins for the formulation of automotive coatings which increases the demand for the Paraxylene Market. 


Due to the temporary shutdown of automotive manufacturing units, the demand for the automotive industry reduces, leading to the decline in consumption of automotive coatings. Hence the demand for paraxylene is reduced. Further, in this pandemic situation, the demand for clear masks, face-shield, food, and e-commerce packaging is increased which increases the demand for paraxylene derivatives that are used in the manufacturing of those products. Some of those paraxylene derivatives are dimethyl terephthalate, purified terephthalate acid, polyethylene terephthalate which is returning the growth of the Paraxylene Market.

Market Dynamics:             

Drivers:


Due to the constant demand for polyester manufacturers for the last few years, the paraxylene market is expected to increase its growth. Paraxylene is used in the manufacturing process of polyester. In 2015, polyesters become the most commonly used synthetic fiber, and their demand reaches around USD 50 million tons. Growing demand for paraxylene in various end-use industries like packaging, textiles, and construction materials is boosting the demand for the Paraxylene Market highly.


Growing demand for PET bottle resin due to rising usage of PET in mineral water bottles and soft drinks is accelerating the Paraxylene Market Growth. The growing income levels and the increasing population levels drive the growth of the food industry and new investments are being observed food & beverages industry which leads to the setting up of food processing & beverage producing facilities, and individual confectionaries may be predicted to increase the demand for the Paraxylene Market.

Restraint:


Growing awareness among the consumers regarding the usage of plastic-free products and the rise in PET collection and recycling rates are the restraining factors of the Global Paraxylene Market. PX is moderately harmful to aquatic organisms and the environment is hindering the market growth. Growing demand for mixed xylene which is a raw material for the production of the Paraxylene Market is hampering the growth of the market.

Opportunities:


The growing use of bio-based paraxylene in bioplastics PET bottles and other bioplastic applications like catering utensils may create a new opportunity to increase the growth of the market. Developing innovative production technologies for minimizing resource waste and reach strong emission standards is expected to foster the growth of the market.

Challenges:


The strong restrictions by the regulatory bodies for controlling the paraxylene emission in water and water reservoirs are the major challenging factors of the Paraxylene Market during the forecast period.
