The global paraxylene (PX) market is expected to grow at a CAGR of around 6% during 2019-2024.

Paraxylene, also known as PX or P-Xylene, is an aromatic hydrocarbon compound. It is a colorless, transparent, highly flammable and toxic chemical which is chemically derived from products containing benzene. It is produced through the process of catalytic reforming of petroleum derivatives and is separated through crystallization, distillation and the reaction of ethylbenzene. It is primarily used as a raw material in the manufacturing of industrial chemicals such as purified terephthalic acid (PTA), purified dimethyl terephthalate (DMT) and others. It also finds applications in the production of packaging materials, polyester fibres, construction materials, etc.

The growing demand for plastics across the globe is the key factor driving the market. Paraxylene forms the core component in the production of plastic products. As a result, it is utilized for manufacturing polyethylene terephthalate (PET) bottles commonly used as containers for soda, water and other beverages. Paraxylene is also being used in the production of various household products such as containers for cosmetics and toiletries, and curtain fabrics, clothing and upholstery. Furthermore, the development of bio-based paraxylene is significantly contributing to the market growth. Increasing environmental awareness has encouraged consumers to seek eco-friendly options. Consequently, bioplastics, of which bio-based paraxylene is an integral component, are widely being incorporated across industries as a sustainable alternative to the conventionally used plastics. Other factors such as a thriving packaging industry are also contributing to the growth of the market.
