Packaging Market is expected to grow at 15%, majorly driven by growth in packaged foods and beverages

While ‘polyester’ is generally used for textile applications, PET corresponds mainly to bottling or films. PX is the key Precursor for PET

Global Demand for PX is a direct reflection of the demand for PET and is concentrated in Asia, especially China

Almost 99% of PX is used in the manufacture of polyester/ PET through PTA or DMT

With increasing demand for packaging, global PX demand is expected to grow at 5.8% till 2030, driven by growth in Asia

India will be dependent on imports from Middle East and Northeast Asia in the medium to long term

PTA is the only application of PX; its production will impact PX demand. China to remain main hub of PTA production

Due to high demand, China to remain net importer of PTA. NEA, NA and SEA to be key exporting regions

The demand for PET determines the demand for PTA and PX. PET is the only product of PTA, with high growth prospects

India, NEA and China to be net exporters of PET with N America and Europe being large, net importers.

PX is produced in India by three companies. Imports that played a key role are expected to reduce going forward

RIL is the biggest PX manufacturer and is the only Indian company totally integrated for PTA and PET

IOCL has plans for a PX-PTA capacity in Orissa; RIL recently increased its capacity to about 4.2 MMTPA

Most PX is consumed captively. However, MCC PTA totally dependent on imports for supply; JBF has a long term contract with OMPL

With limited merchant sales in India, consumers prefer to enter into long term agreements to ensure secure supplies

India to see 4,000-5,000 KTPA of additional PTA capacity in 4-5 years, which will drive the demand for PX

PX will not be substituted, even in the long term, as it is a key raw material for current PTA production technologies

The high demand for PET/ polyester is the key driver for PX investments in India

While PX demand is to grow at about 7.7%, lack of raw materials will limit production growth to only 7.4%

India is a net importer of PTA and is expected to become self-sufficient

India’s demand for PET to be driven by packaging application, with sufficient PET production in local market supported by PTA capacity

Steady demand growth for paraxylene in India presents an opportunity for about 1,000 KT of additional capacity by 2030 (1/2)

Imports from global suppliers, especially from the Middle East could be a threat in the medium to long terms (2/2)

Asia will be the key growth driver for PX demand due to increased PET demand

India will see high demand growth, while raw material shortage will limit supply growth
