Region : Global | Report ID: FBI104567 | Status : Ongoing



Paraxylene also called as p-xylene is an aromatic hydrocarbon. It is one pf the three isomers of dimethylbenzene which is collectively known as xylenes. The methyl groups are on the diametrically opposite carbons of the benzene. Paraxylene is a colorless liquid with high flammability. It is generally produced by catalytic reforming of naphtha and is a part of BTX aromatics. P-xylene is one of the important chemical used in production of PET bottles and polyester fibers.

Increasing demand for PET bottles, resin, fibers, and other products from food & beverages, textiles, personal care, pharmaceutical, and cosmetic sectors shall bolster the market growth.
