Press Release

Global Paraxylene Market to Grow at a CAGR of 6.4% During 2024-2032, Driven by the global polyester demand, packaged bottled drinks growth, and innovation in paraxylene production technology.

Global Paraxylene Market

According to a new report by EMR titled, ‘Global Paraxylene Market Report and Forecast 2024-2032’, the market attained a value of about USD 49.98 billion in 2023. The market is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 6.4% in the forecast period of 2024-2032 to reach a value of around USD 87.34 billion by 2032.

The Asia Pacific accounts for a significant share of the market due to the increased use of paraxylene in the chemical and petrochemical industries. The primary raw ingredient for polyester, purified terephthalic acid (PTA) is made primarily from paraxylene as feedstock.


Polyester fibres used in textiles (clothing and home furnishings) and solid-state resins used in the manufacture of bottles for beverages are some of the derivatives of this chemical substance. It is also used as a feedstock in PET manufacturing, which is a demanded material for packaging.


PET is also used as a binding additive in the construction sector. The rising construction activities and boost in tourism in developing countries such as China, India, and the Philippines expand the paraxylene market size.


The expansion of production facilities for paraxylene derivatives contributes to the market growth. In August 2021, Reliance Industries Limited (RIL) (NSE: RELIANCE) established a recycled polyester staple fibre (PSF) manufacturing facility in Andhra Pradesh, aimed at doubling the company's PET recycling capacity. The action is a component of RIL's pledge to strengthen the whole polyester and polymer value chain, raise its sustainability quotient, and lead circular economy initiatives.


India will sustain a recycling rate above 90% as a result of RIL's initiative to more than double its recycling capacity to 5 billion post-consumer PET bottles. To promote circularity and sustainability ideas in the textile, fashion, and polymer industries, the company is spearheading a number of projects, including Fashion for Earth, a collaboration with Lakmé Fashion Week, and the Circular Design Challenge.
