Market Overview:

Market Research Future (MRFR) has launched a new report on the Global Dioctyl Terephthalate Market. The report studies the market’s historical and present statistics in order to come up with reliable forecasts for the market’s likely growth trajectory over the 2018-2023 forecast period.According to the report, the Dioctyl Terephthalate Market Forecast is expected to rise from a 2018 valuation of USD 1,203.2 million to USD 1,864.7 million by 2023 at a CAGR of 9.16%.

Dioctyl terephthalate (DOTP) is the diester of terephthalic acid and is widely used as a non-phthalate plasticizer. Its toxicological and physical characteristics, such as high thermal resistance, high transparency, and excellent durability, are well suited for this application. The growing regulatory support to replacing phthalates with more environmentally viable alternatives is likely to drive the global dioctyl terephthalate (DOTP) market over the forecast period. Phthalates have also been linked to a number of diseases ranging from asthma to breast cancer, which has also driven the demand for alternatives. The safer, toxicologically harmless dioctyl terephthalate is thus likely to take their place in the increasingly lucrative consumer goods and plastics markets in the coming years.
