Isophthalic Acid Market Overview
As per the latest research done by the Fact.MR, over the historical period of 2016-2020, the isophthalic acid industry grew at a fast pace. However, during the forecast period, the demand for isophthalic acid is projected to grow at a moderate to high CAGR and is expected to hold more than 23% consumption share in North American market. This increase is anticipated because, these Isophthalic acid has various applications in the manufacture of a variety of essential polymers. At present, this acid is used as a base to make polybenzimidazole, a high-performance polymer. Due to these factors, this chemical has significant demand over the market.
Isophthalic acid is a fragrant dicarboxylic acid derived industrially from m-xylene oxidation. These acids are used commonly in commercial applications as a part of the PET (polyethylene terephthalate) copolymer, often used as resins for the bottles. These acids are also available as Purified Isophthalic Acid (PIA), which is a highly pure type of isophthalic acid with up to 99 per cent or higher purity.
What are Driving and Challenging Factors for Isophthalic Acid Market?
Global isophthalic acid demand is projected to expand with substantial pace. These expansion is primarily driven by the demand growth of polyethylene terephthalate (PET), resins for bottles. Since this acid is one of the primary raw material in the manufacture of PET resins the demand growth for the targeted product is rising.
Isophthalic acid's outstanding properties are drawing attention and demand growth of customers for the global isophthalic acid players. Some of the properties are hydrolytic stability, strength, glossiness, resistance to corrosion, and ease of fabrication make it extremely useful in a wide variety of applications, including the production of corrosion-resistant pipes. In addition, other factors driving the growth of this product include the emerging economy, which is contributing to the rapid development of industries across various geographies.
In the present scenario, there is a surplus quantity of isophthalic acid, with enough quantity to meet the demands for the next five years. This means that the rate of output exceeds the rate of consumption of isophthalic acid. As a result, the price of isophthalic acid is expected to plummet. Increasing demand for resins derived from isophthalic acid is likely to balance the supply consumption cycle in the coming years, bringing prices back up to a higher level.
On the back of the growing demand for soft drinks and bottles, the bottling and packaging sector is expected to see a substantial volume increase. The products like take-out containers, ketchup, kitchen supplies, frozen meals, drinking water and carbonated beverages all contain the packaging is inclusive of purified terephthalic acid. As PET is derived from isophthalic acid, the growing demand for these products is an indirect growth factor in the targeted market.
Isophthalic acid-derived resins have high longevity and resistance to wear and tear, which decreases their degradation rate. This is one of the factors contributing to the growth of the global isophthalic acid industry. However, it raises the issues of various environmental legislation that seek to protect the nature from pollution and are opposed to the use of such polymers. As a result, regulations limiting the isophthalic acids usage in consumer goods are expected to slow the global market demand.
