Impact Of COVID-19 On The Global Purified Terephthalic Acid Market            

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the world witnessed one of the worst recessions since WW2. The global purified terephthalic acid market has also been brutally impacted by the emergence of the COVID-19 pandemic. The lockdowns in major countries of the world brought the import and export of textiles to a halt. Thus significantly bringing down the demand for textiles throughout the world. Numerous industries curbed or reduced their production. Moreover, the majority of the industries dependent on China for raw materials experienced supply chain disruptions while the country lay grappled by the COVID-19 pandemic. But on the other hand, the global health crisis had some positive impacts on the PTA market as well. PTA found immense application in the production of personal protection (PPE) kits that were mandatory for the health care front line workers while treating patients in order to safeguard themselves from infection. India alone produced about 2 lakh PPE kits on an average in over 3600 manufacturing units.

The Asia-Pacific Region Is Expected To Grow with The Highest CAGR In The Global Purified Terephthalic Acid Market.

In terms of regional analysis, the global purified terephthalic acid market has been classified into North America, Europe, The Asia Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East and Africa. Amidst the segmentation, the Asia-Pacific region is expected to be the largest growing market in the global purified terephthalic acid market owing to the largest consumer of polyester fiber and yarn. China is the largest exporter as well as manufacturer of purified terephthalic acid in the world. The rise in demand for polyester fiber and yarn in the textile industry and the growing consumption of PET bottles are anticipated to propel the growth of the purified terephthalic acid (PTA) market in the region. The APAC is followed by North America and Europe respectively. This is due to the high polyester fiber consumption potential of North America which can be attributed to the growing increasing usage of industrial machinery, swelling paints & coatings production capacities, and an intensifying economic growth rate.
