Global Purified Terephthalic Acid (PTA) Market to reach US$ 112.96 Billion by 2027, Impelled by the Expanding Textile Industry

Published on Sep 07, 2022

The latest report by IMARC Group, titled Purified Terephthalic Acid (PTA) Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity, and Forecast 2022-2027,” finds that the global purified terephthalic acid (PTA) market size reached US$ 82.3 Billion in 2021. Purified terephthalic acid (PTA) with formula C6H4(COOH)2 is a white organic compound produced by a reaction between acetic acid and paraxylene (PX) in the presence of air. It is widely used in artificial polyester fabrics, which are further utilized in dresses, trousers, sportswear, swimsuits, curtains, sofa covers, jackets, car seat covers, and bed sheets. It exhibits excellent weathering, hardness, flexibility, chemical and stain resistance, and fluidization characteristics. As a result, PTA finds extensive applications in formulating general appliances, industrial maintenance, coil coatings, and metal.

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 Purified Terephthalic Acid Market Trends:

The market is primarily driven by the expanding textile industry. In addition, the widespread adoption of polyester fibers on account of their compatibility with other synthetic or natural fibers is contributing to the market growth. Moreover, the increasing sales of on-the-go bottled beverages due to the hectic lifestyles of working professionals and inflating per capita income represent another major growth-inducing factor. Besides this, PTA is deployed in manufacturing high-strength, light-colored, and solvent-free adhesives, which are widely applied to bond paper, metal, lamination, wood, synthetics in shoe fabrication, and automotive sub-assembly. Apart from this, PTA is utilized in the pharmaceutical industry as a raw material for various drugs that help treat chronic and acute diseases, such as reflux esophagitis, peptic ulcers, and gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). It is further used in the manufacturing of recording tapes, tire cords, cyclohexanedimethanol (CHDM), terephthaloyl chloride (TCL), co-polyester-ether elastomers, plasticizers, and liquid crystal. Furthermore, various key players are focusing on collaborations and partnerships with other organizations to reduce costs and improve product quality, which is anticipated to propel market growth. Other factors, including rapid urbanization and the increasing foreign investments in the packaging and paints and coatings sectors, are creating a positive market outlook across the globe. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market value to reach US$ 112.96 Billion by 2027, exhibiting a CAGR of 5.25% during the forecast period (2022-2027).
