Purified Terephthalic Acid Market Trends




  • Polyethylene terephthalate (PET) application in packaging industry to boost market growth




PET is a polymer with several characteristics that make it suitable for product packaging. PET is the plastic that is recycled the most frequently worldwide. It allows for creating large, secure containers since they are clear, strong, environmentally benign, chemically inert, and lightweight.


Additionally, PET may be used to create boxes in a range of conventional shapes, such as cubes or rectangles, as well as distinctive shapes, such as pyramids, purses, or in configurable sizes, enabling product makers to tailor their packaging to their brand or product message. If done well, a creative packaging design may raise customer interest. PET plastic is strong and lightweight. This implies that it may be utilized to create stronger, smaller boxes that will fit into storage and transit spaces. Lower shipping costs need less storage space, and smaller environmental footprints can all result from lighter packaging. PET is recycled at a high rate. Repeated recycling won't cause any of its beneficial properties to deteriorate. Therefore, polyethylene terephthalate (PET) application in the packaging industry has enhanced the purified terephthalic acid market CAGR across the globe in recent years.


Further, polyester powder coating resins are produced using purified terephthalic acid (PTA) and are utilized to create general metal, appliance, automobile, industrial maintenance, and coil coatings. Purified terephthalic acid-based polyester fibres are blended with natural and other synthetic fibres. Polyester textiles, such as those used to manufacture bedsheets, bedspreads, curtains, and drapes, are among the many uses for which polyester fibres are utilized. Strong demand for polyester fibre, the biggest category and responsible for about two-thirds of the world's demand for polyester, has been a major driver of the development in the consumption of terephthalic acid in Asia. Hence, the continuous demand for polyester fibers is another factor driving the growth of the purified terephthalic acid market revenue.


Purified Terephthalic Acid Market Segment Insights


Purified Terephthalic Acid Application Insights


The purified terephthalic acid market segmentation, based on application, includes PET resin, polybutylene terephthalate, polyester fiber, films, and intermediate. The PET resin segment held the majority share in 2021 regarding the purified terephthalic acid market revenue. Throughout the projected period, market development is anticipated to be aided by rising demand for PET resins in water and soft drink bottles. Using more PET resin in packaging prepared and fresh meals will increase the market growth. Additionally, its increased usage in the food and cosmetics industries is due to its exceptional qualities, including strength and water resistance. PET bottles can be resealed, are lightweight, and are easy to handle. Further, the fastest-growing segment in the purified terephthalic acid industry is polyester fiber.


August 2022: Corpus Christi Polymers has given Worley two contracts for its Corpus Christi, Texas, polyethylene terephthalate (PET) and purified terephthalic acid (PTA) facility. The combined PTA-PET factory will be able to make 1.1 million and 1.2 million metric tonnes of PET and PTA annually, respectively.


December 2022: Due to lower inventories at the level of manufacturers, PET Resin prices increased somewhat in Northeast Asia. In November, the price fall for PE, PP, and PS appeared to end. This was partly because suppliers cut back on output to reduce their bloated stocks, and in the case of PE, more enticing offers for exports and the domestic spot market were made.

Purified Terephthalic Acid End-User Industry Insights


The purified terephthalic acid market data has been segmented by end-user industry into food & beverage packaging, construction, electrical & electronics, textile, paints & coatings, and furniture. The textile segment dominated the market in 2021 and is projected to be the faster-growing segment during the forecast period, 2022-2030. Rising demand for polyester fibre and yarns from the textile sector in emerging nations such as Malaysia, China, and India is fueling this market's expansion. However, this business is rising as a result of escalating fashion trends and population growth. Due to its extreme tenacity and endurance, purified terephthalic acid is suitable for use in the textile sector. Hence, the textile segment positively impacts the purified terephthalic acid market growth.


February 2020: For the purpose of lowering manufacturing costs and improving competitiveness, the Indian textile industry has been calling for the elimination of the anti-dumping tariff placed on PTA. India's ability to compete with less expensive imports would increase with the abolition of the anti-dumping charge, which would also increase exports. The anti-dumping tariff on PTA imported from China, Iran, Indonesia, Malaysia, Taiwan, Korea, and Thailand, enacted between July 2016 and July 2019, has already been lifted. This has further broadened the growth opportunity for the purified terephthalic acid industry.
