The Purified Terephthalic Acid (PTA) market is projected to grow from USD 48.14 Billion in 2018 to USD 61.78 Billion by 2023, at a CAGR of 5.1% during the forecast period. Purified terephthalic acid is used to manufacture polyester resins, such as polyester fiber & yarn, PET, and polyester films. It is also used to manufacture various chemical intermediates, such as liquid crystal polymers, cyclohexane dimethanol, and polytrimethylene terephthalate.

The purified terephthalic acid market has been segmented on the basis of application and region. Based on application, the market has been segmented into polyester, plasticizers, polybutylene terephthalate, and others. The polyester application segment is estimated to account for the largest share of the purified terephthalic acid market in 2018. This large share can be attributed to the increased demand for polyester fiber & yarn from the textile industry.

The polyester application segment has been further divided on the basis of grade and end user. Based on grade, the polyester application segment has been classified into fiber & yarn grade, Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET) grade, and film grade. The increased demand for polyester fiber & yarn from the textile industry in countries, such as India, China, and Malaysia, is driving the growth of the purified terephthalic acid market. Based on end user, the polyester application segment has been classified into textile, PET bottles, and packaging.

Based on region, the purified terephthalic acid market in South America is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. This growth can be attributed to the increased demand for purified terephthalic acid from PET grade resin producers in South America.

Asia Pacific is the largest market for purified terephthalic acid. The rise in consumption of PET material bottles and the increase in demand for purified terephthalic acid from the packaging industry are key factors driving the growth of the Asia Pacific purified terephthalic acid market.

Purified Terephthalic Acid (PTA) Market

However, the overcapacity of PTA in China has led to a decline in the global operating rate of PTA, thereby restraining the growth of the purified terephthalic acid market.

Key players operating in the purified terephthalic acid market include Reliance Industries Limited (India), British Petroleum (UK), Sinopec Corporation (China), Indorama Ventures Public Company (Thailand), and SABIC (Saudi Arabia). These companies have undertaken various organic and inorganic business strategies such as agreements, acquisitions, and expansions to enhance their market position.
