Persistence Market Research is released new forthcoming report on title "Purified Terephthalic Acid Market: Global Industry Analysis and Forecast to 2020".


New York, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/16/2014 -- Purified Terephthalic Acid is a chemical derived from crude oil and is generally used to produce polyester fiber, which textile and home furnishing industries require to produce garments such as curtains, bed sheets and clothes. Purified terephthalic acid is a precursor to Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET), which is used in the bottling and packaging industry. By causing a reaction between the secondary petroleum product paraxylene (PX) and acetic acid, purified terephthalic acid can be made. Polyester is the largest synthetic fibre used in textiles and growing popularity of purified terephthalic film, sheet and moulded containers for food packaging, indirectly drives the demand for purified terephthalic acid. Apart from use in textiles and bottling industry, purified terephthalic acid is used in films for audio and video recording tapes.
