Dublin, Oct. 06, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Paraxylene Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2023-2028" report has been added to's offering.

The global paraxylene (PX) market size reached US$ 47.0 Billion in 2022. Looking forward, the market is poised to reach US$ 65.9 Billion by 2028, exhibiting a growth rate (CAGR) of 6.3% during 2023-2028.

Paraxylene, also recognized as PX or P-Xylene, stands as an aromatic hydrocarbon compound. It presents itself as a colorless, transparent, highly flammable, and hazardous chemical, with its origins rooted in benzene-derived products.

The production of paraxylene involves a complex process, commencing with the catalytic reforming of petroleum derivatives and culminating in separation via crystallization, distillation, and the reaction of ethylbenzene. Its primary role lies in serving as a fundamental raw material for the manufacturing of industrial chemicals, including purified terephthalic acid (PTA) and purified dimethyl terephthalate (DMT), among others. Additionally, it extends its utility to the creation of diverse products such as packaging materials, polyester fibers, construction materials, and more.

The surging global demand for plastics emerges as the pivotal force propelling the paraxylene market forward. Paraxylene assumes a central role in the plastic production process, notably contributing to the creation of polyethylene terephthalate (PET) bottles that serve as ubiquitous containers for beverages like soda, water, and various other drinks. Moreover, paraxylene finds application in crafting an array of everyday items, including containers for cosmetics and toiletries, as well as materials for curtains, clothing, and upholstery.

Furthermore, the emergence of bio-based paraxylene signifies a substantial stride in market expansion. Heightened environmental consciousness has prompted consumers to seek eco-friendly alternatives, prompting the widespread adoption of bioplastics, where bio-based paraxylene plays a pivotal role. These bioplastics are rapidly gaining traction across industries as sustainable substitutes for conventionally used plastics. Additionally, the thriving packaging sector lends further impetus to market growth.
