Global Paraxylene (PX) Market to Grow at 6.51% During 2022-2027, Impelled by Rising Uptake of Plastics Across Multiple End Use Sectors

September 17, 2021

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Paraxylene (PX) Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027," the global paraxylene (PX) market reached a value of US$ 44.1 Billion in 2021. Paraxylene (PX) refers to a toxic and aromatic hydrocarbon compound. Also known as P-Xylene, it is colorless, transparent and organic in nature while being highly flammable at room temperature. One of the isomers of xylene, it is chemically derived from products containing benzene. It can be widely obtained via the process of catalytic reforming of petroleum derivatives, which is further separated through crystallization, distillation and the reaction of ethylbenzene. PX is commonly utilized as a raw material for manufacturing various industrial chemicals, such as dimethyl-terephthalate (DMT) and purified terephthalic acid (PTA), which are further used in the production of plastics, such as polyethylene terephthalate (PET).

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.

Global Paraxylene (PX) Market Trends:

The global market is majorly driven by the increasing uptake of plastics from multiple end use industries.
