The purified Terephthalic Acid Market is forecast to reach $70.5 billion by 2027, after growing at a CAGR of 5.3% during 2022-2027. Purified Terephthalic Acid (PTA) is derived from crude oil, through chemical synthesis. Purified Terephthalic Acid (PTA) is majorly used in the production of polyester resin, which is used in the manufacture of polyester film, polyethylene terephthalate (PET) resin, and polyester fiber. Globally, the development of efficient and advance technology, rising demand for polyester resin and Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET), growing textile, coating and packaging industries, and rising per capita consumption and the growing disposable income are the prime growth drivers of the purified terephthalic acid market. In addition, an increase in the adoption of purified terephthalic acid for application in newer industrial verticals, and emerging economies such as China, India and others, will create new opportunities for the purified terephthalic acid market. However, volatile prices of crude oil and availability of raw materials, the presence of substitute compounds, complex manufacturing process, stringent government regulations, and an outbreak of COVID-19 are the key restraints for the purified terephthalic acid market.

Purified Terephthalic Acid Market Drivers

Growing Textile Industry due to fashion industry and changing life style

Purified Terephthalic Acid is primarily used to produce polyester fibers and yarn. Polyester fibers are man-made fibers and are increasingly adopted by the textile industry, due to their recyclability and versatility, as well as their affordability as compared to other fibers. Increasing disposable income and adoption of western culture in emerging nations have boosted the growth of the fashion industry. Additionally, surging demand of rayon fiber for clothing and home-ware, such as blankets, sheets and curtains are augmenting the growth of the rayon fibers market. According to Trade Map, global spending on import of apparels and clothing accessories increased by 9% accounting for $ 4,741,531 in 2018. Huge spending of youth on apparels fashion products is augmenting the market. Also, according to the China Luxury Report, Chinese consumers at home and abroad spent 115 billion on luxury fashion items in 2018 which equivalents to a third of the global spend. Over the past few years, the polyester industry has been accounting for the largest share of the textile industry.

Purified Terephthalic Acid Market Challenges

The fluctuating raw material cost and Stringent Environment Regulations

Price and availability of raw materials are major factors that affect the price of the end products. The major challenge for the global PTA market is the oscillating price trends of raw materials, which are fluctuating due to volatile energy prices, as most of the raw materials are petroleum-based. According to BP statistics, in 2018, the average crude oil price increased to $71/ bbl from $54/bbl in 2017. Fluctuations in crude oil prices impact the cost of raw materials used in the production of PTA. Therefore, the fluctuation in raw materials prices is affecting PTA which is limiting its market growth. Several organizations such as the United States Environmental Protection Agency, the California Air Resources Board, and others have set various regulations and policies to reduce carbon footprint and VOC emissions from coatings. In January 2018, the EU published the German version of DIN EN 16516, a test standard that uniformly regulates the emission measurement of construction products including coatings. Thus, growing environmental concern is resulting in more stringent regulations limiting VOC emission from coatings, which is may hinder the market growth.

Emergence of COVID-19

The outbreak of COVID-19 globally further acts as a challenging factor to the market growth. The corona pandemic has disrupted the global supply chain, the shutdown of various end-use industry production, lack of manpower, the global lockdown, and declined demand from consumers further restraining the market growth. In addition, a decrease in purchasing capital impacted the growth of oil & gas and Textile industries further affecting the growth of the Purified Terephthalic Acid market.
