Market Overview


Paraxylene is an aromatic hydrocarbon and isomer of xylene compound, which is derived from dimethylbenzene. Paraxylene is widely used as a feedstock in the production of terephthalic acid (TPA), purified terephthalic acid (PTA) and dimethyl terephthalate (DMT). TPA, PTA and DMT are used to manufacture polyethylene terephthalate (PET).


Paraxylene Market is projected to register a CAGR of more than 6% to reach a value of over USD 68 Billion by 2025. The major factor driving the growth of the global paraxylene market is the high demand for PET in beverage bottling, food packaging as well as automotive, electronics, and construction industries. This demand is attributed to the lightweight, shatterproof, recyclability, and anti-microbial characteristics of PET. The growth of these industries across the globe is driving the demand for PET, which drives the demand for TPA, PTA, and DMT, thus fueling the production of paraxylene. Rapid industrialization and urbanization in emerging economies such as India, Vietnam, Thailand, Brazil, Chile, and South Africa are projected to boost the demand for PET, thereby, propelling the growth of the paraxylene market. Stringent regulations by the US Environment Protection Agency and European Legislation for environment protection have augmented the demand for lightweight materials such as PET in major end-use industries. The technological advancements such as Plant PET Technology Collaborative (PTC) to produce 100% bio-based PET by Virent, Inc in 2015, which produces paraxylene using beet sugar instead of fossil fuels is an opportunity for the players in this market. Furthermore, a prototype of the first 100% PET bottle was shown by Coca-Cola Co in September 2015 at the World Expo in Milan. Stringent regulations on the usage of synthetic-based polymers to reduce the greenhouse gas emission is likely to fuel the demand for bio-based paraxylene in the coming years. However, the fluctuating prices of petroleum products as well as health effects associated with the exposure and inhalation of paraxylene are some of the factors restraining the market growth.


Versatile scope of application of paraxylene along with its extensive use in major end-use industries has led manufacturers to undergo various strategic growth initiatives such as expansion and acquisition. For instance, in August 2017, Exxon Mobil completed the acquisition of Jurong Aromatics Corporation’s largest facilities in Singapore. This acquisition increased ExxonMobil’s Singapore aromatics production to over 3.5 million tonnes per year, including 1.8 million tonnes of paraxylene.

Regional Analysis


The global paraxylene market, by region, has been segmented into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East & Africa.


Asia-Pacific accounted for the largest market share in 2018 on the backdrop of high consumption of paraxylene in PET production, which is further utilized in major end-use industries such as construction, automotive, packaging, and electronics. Fast-paced industrialization, improving economic conditions, supportive government policies, availability of cheap labor, and increasing exports coupled with growing population and changing lifestyles in the region are driving the growth of these industries, which in turn, fuel the demand for paraxylene in the region.


The large industrial base in Europe and North America coupled with the high demand for PET in automotive, electronics, healthcare, and construction industries are expected to drive the growth of the regional markets during the review period.


Industrialization in emerging economies such as Brazil and Chile is expected to drive the product demand in Latin America during the forecast period. Presence of oil & gas reserves in GCC, UAE, and Saudi Arabia is likely to propel the production and export of paraxylene, thereby leading to market growth during the assessment period.
