Para Xylene Market:


Para Xylene Market is expected to grow at USD 81.02 billion by 2022 growing with the CAGR of 12.05% from 2016 to 2022. The source for producing para xylene is naphtha.

Para Xylene (PX), an aromatic hydrocarbon, is the source for the commercial production of purified terephthalic acid (PTA) and dimethyl terephthalate (DMT), which are further used to produce polyester. The para xylene production process includes the conversion of naphtha into BTX, a mixture of benzene, xylene, and toluene, and the separation of PX by fractional crystallization. PX is an important petrochemical as its end-product polyester is used for various industrial purposes, including textile manufacturing and packaging. It also finds usage as a solvent, along with being the raw material to manufacture Di-PX and herbicides.

Para Xylene (PX) had witnessed a rapid growth demand from last few years due to steady demand from polyester manufactures. It is majorly used for producing PTA (Purified Terephthalic acid) and DMT (Dimethyl Terephthalate) which are used in production of polyester. In 2015, the polyesters demand reached around USD 50 million tons making it the most commonly used synthetic fiber across the globe. A small amount of Para xylene is also used as a solvent and in the production of herbicides and di-Para xylene. Rising demand for Para xylene from numerous end user industries including packaging, textiles and construction materials is significantly influencing the demand for Para xylene.
