Para Xylene Market

Para Xylene Market Abstract:

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.

Para Xylene (PX) had witnessed steady demand from last few years due to stable demand from polyester manufactures. It is majorly used for producing PTA (Purified Terephthalic acid) and DMT (Dimethyl Terephthalate). In 2015, the polyesters demand reached around USD 50 million tons making it the most commonly used synthetic fiber across the globe. Rising demand for para xylene   from numerous end user industries including packaging, textiles and construction materials is significantly influencing the demand for para xylene.

Para Xylene Market is anticipated to grow at steady pace. Para xylene market is currently experiencing an up-cycle for producers. In recent years, new capacity coming on-stream has not kept pace with steadily increasing demand. Existing producers can capitalize in this environment by maximizing production. Since most plants are already operating at full capacity, further increases may require some type of modification. Developments in process technology are the key to enabling revamps that allow low cost expansions that can be executed quickly market is currently.

Para Xylene Market Application:

Para Xylene is used in the production of Purified Terephthalic Acid (PTA) and Dimethyl Terephthalate (DMT) which is further used in production of polyester fiber, film, and resin for a variety of application. Due to downstream demand, the para xylene market is robust and is growing at 6% to 8% every year. By 2005, globally, the production of para xylene capacity has demanded by more than 5.5 million metric tons per annum, lowering the average capacity up to 85%.

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 Market Key Players:

Para Xylene Market are Honeywell UOP, BP, JX Nippon Oil & Energy Corp., CNPC, S-Oil, Reliance Industries Ltd, and Dragon, NPC Iran, FCFC, GS Caltex, KPPC, ONGC, Orpic, China National Offshore Oil Corporation.

Reliance Industries contributes about 14% to the total Indian export it has presence in various sector. In India, Reliance is the largest producer of polyester fiber and yarn and the 5th largest producer of Para xylene.

Honeywell UOP, has developed and successfully commercialized its latest breakthrough in Para xylene technology. Use of ADS-37TM adsorbent, UOP’s latest adsorbent for the Parex TM Process, while carrying out a high capacity revamp, can result in a capacity increase in the range of 10 to 30% compared with operation with previous generation. The improvements associated with ADS-37TM adsorbent and high capacity revamp can be implemented quickly and at relatively lower cost.

Para Xylene Market Information- by Application (Plastic industry, Textile industry and others), by End-use (Purified Terephthalic Acid (PTA) and Dimethyl Terephthalate (DMT) and others), and by Region – Forecast till 2022.
