Asia Pacific Polyester Fiber Market to Drive Global Xylene Demand
The Asia Pacific region is emerging as the textile industry hub of the world. The advantage of low costs because of cheap labor is aiding the growth of textile industry in the region. There has been a continuous shift in the manufacturing industry from the developed regions of the world like North America and Western Europe to take advantage of the low-cost facilities available in Asia Pacific. As a result, demand is continuously increasing in the Asia Pacific region, with the Chinese economy leading, followed by India and South Korea. Much of the Xylene produced is used to make Pure Terephthalic Acid (PTA) which is further used in polyester production. This trend of increased consumption from the Asia Pacific countries is expected to continue in future. And as a result polyester fiber market in Asia Pacific will the global demand in the coming years.
Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET) Will Emerge as a Major Source for the Growth of Xylene.
PET forms up to 30% of the global PTA demand in 2009. PET is increasingly being used as a replacement for glass in soft drink and mineral water bottles. Further PET is finding applications in packaging of various food products and drinks Ltd. The decline in the consumption of polyester in the textile industry, especially in North America and Europe, is being compensated for by the growth of PET bottle resin markets. A similar trend is being observed worldwide, and as a result the demand for Xylene is expected to grow considerably in the regions where per capita consumption of PET is low.
