Para-Xylene Market – Market Overview
Xylene is a clear, colorless and flammable solution which is produced from crude oil. Xylene primarily exists in three isomeric forms such as ortho-xylene, meta-xylene and para-xylene. Para xylene or PX or P-xylene is basically an aromatic hydrocarbon compound, which is colorless, sweet-smelling, toxic, and highly flammable chemical. Para-xylene is extensively used for the production of dimethyl terephthalate (DMT) and terephthalic acid (PTA) which are further used in the manufacturing of polyesters. Moreover, para-xylene is primarily used in the production of polyethylene terephthalate (PET) which is primarily used as a packaging materials for carbonated drinks, water bottles, and other containers for food, beverages and personal care products.
According to the analysis of MRFR, the major market forces and trends driving growth of the global Para-Xylene market analysis includes increasing demand for various applications such as packaging, textile and construction materials among others. Moreover, the increasing personal disposable income in the developing economies throughout the globe has augmented the demand for polyester fibers which in turn is expected to fuel the growth of the global Para-Xylene Market during the forecast period. In addition, the growing demand for polyethylene terephthalate (PET) as a packaging material is further expected to affect the market positively. However, stringent government regulations regarding the use of Polyethylene terephthalate due to the non-biodegradable nature and harmful environmental effects in the developed regions such as Europe and North America coupled with the lack of competent labor for handling and transportation of hazardous para-xylene chemicals in the developing economies can act as a major down side to the growth of the market.
