Isopthalic Acid Market Size, Share, Industry Growth, Trend, Business Opportunities, Challenges, Drivers and Restraint Research Report by 2026

An increase in demand for PET bottle resins and unsaturated polyester resins are the major factors influencing market growth.

Market Size – USD 1.30 billion in 2018, Market Growth – CAGR of 6.0%, Market Trends – Rise in vertical integration.

The global Isopthalic Acid market is expected to reach USD 2.10 Billion by 2026, according to a new report by Reports and Data. Isophthalic acid is an aromatic colorless organic compound which serves as an isomer of terepthalic acid and phthalic acid and is industrially manufactured by the oxidizing meta-xylene.

There is an increase in the demand for PET bottle and containers among end-user especially in companies manufacturing soft drinks, detergents, cosmetics and pharmaceutical products among others. PET also finds application in the production of water resistant papers. This increased demand of PTE is forecasted to boost the market growth.

A rise in the use of unsaturated polyester resin for use in water tanks, pipes and marine & automotive industries is also one of the major factors driving the market growth.

One of the major factors restricting the market growth is the mandating of stringent regulations and policies. The EPA and REACH have framed certain stringent regulations and policies which are likely to hinder the market growth.

The North America market would witness a slow growth in the consumption of isopthalic acid. The market growth of the isopthalic acid in North America is chiefly contributed by the rising production of PET bottle resin in the United States. In Europe market would be more restricted due to stiff competition from the supply of material for PET bottle resin from counties in the Middle East region.
