Global Purified terephthalic acid (PTA) Market Analysis: Plant Capacity, Production, Operating Efficiency, Demand & Supply, End-User Industries, Sales Channel, Regional Demand, Foreign Trade, Company Share, 2015-2032
The global Purified terephthalic acid (PTA) market has expanded to reach approximately 72 million tonnes in 2022 and is expected to grow at a healthy CAGR of 4.09% during the forecast period until 2032. Rising demand for Purified Terephthalic Acid (PTA), as a raw material to manufacture PET (Polyethylene Terephthalate), which is extensively employed in the food & beverage sector is anticipated to propel the market during the forecast period.
Purified terephthalic acid (PTA) is a white solid organic molecule chemical formula C6H4(CO2H)2. The industrial preparation of PTA begins with an aqueous solution of crude terephthalic acid, hydrogenated to remove impurities before being crystallized to create a slurry of purified terephthalic acid in an aqueous solution. This process is followed by an integrated separation washing process using a centrifuge with washing capabilities. PTA is a versatile chemical used to manufacture a wide array of plasticizers and polymers such as polyethylene terephthalate, polybutylene terephthalate (PBT), terephthaloyl chloride, liquid crystal polymer, etc. Other applications of PTA are the production of polyester coating resins for a variety of uses, including coil coats, electronics, vehicles, and the industrial sector. PTA also finds application in the textile sector for the production of polyester fibers.
Primary, the global PTA market is driven by the Polyester Fibre and Yarn industry. Expansion in the fibres and yarn with improving lifestyles across the globe, the PTA market is anticipated to grow in the forthcoming years. Moreover, PTA is utilized as a starting material for polyester films because of its dimensional stability and sturdiness. An increase in the use of these films in photographic films and data storage tapes and sheets is anticipated to drive the PTA market. Industry demand for packing materials is rising from sectors like food and beverage, consumer products, and others, hyping up the demand for PET resins which will most likely increase the demand for PTA in the forecast period. The global Purified terephthalic acid (PTA) market is anticipated to reach 120 million tonnes by 2032.
Based on region, APAC dominates the Purified terephthalic acid (PTA) market. As of 2022, this region consumed approximately 60% of the global Purified terephthalic acid (PTA). Owing to the rapidly growing population in countries like India, China, and Japan, there will be a rise in PET films, sheets, and molded containers packaging materials for food & beverages which is anticipated to increase the demand for Purified terephthalic acid (PTA) in this region. Furthermore, the growing demand for fibers from the textile sector further propels the demand for PTA in developing nations in APAC.
Based on the end-use, the global Purified terephthalic acid (PTA) market is segregated into Polyester Fibre and Yarn, PET Resin, Polyester Film, and Others. As of 2022, the Polyester Fibre industry is dominating the PTA market with a consumption of around 60%. PTA is one of the most important chemicals for the production of polyester fibers, which are compatible with other natural fibers, driving the majority of the PTA market. Polyester fibres are both strong and lightweight and resistant to wrinkles and water. Fabrics made using polyester fibres are employed for making outerwear clothes such as jackets, raincoats, etc. Furthermore, the PET Resin industry also holds major market shares. PET possesses outstanding qualities including good mechanical strength, excellent gas barrier, and high transparency due to which it is extensively used in packaging purposes, bottles, containers, shopping bags, and microwave containers.
