Global 5-Isopropyl-m-Xylene Market size worth over $235 million by 2026

  • Published Date: January 5, 2021

According to a new research report by Global Market Insights Inc., the Global 5-Isopropyl-m-Xylene Market size is set to surpass USD 235 million by 2026 owing to rising demand for laboratory chemicals from the healthcare, life science and semiconductor industries.

Semiconductor laboratories increasingly require ample supply of reagents to conduct research in various fields such as artificial intelligence, biometrics and to enhance the performance of batteries. The life science sector is witnessing a tremendous rise in cell culture and DNA technologies in recent years. Increasing use of genetic manipulation technique for protein purification and phenotype determination may provide favorable opportunities for the growth of 5-isopropyl-m-xylene market.    

Increasing requirement of durable packaging should accelerate the growth from terephthalic acid and related derivatives

5-isopropyl-m-xylene market demand from terephthalic acid (TPA) and related derivatives should surpass USD 175 million by 2026. Terephthalic acid is witnessing growing adoption in the production of engineering polymers, polybutylene terephthalate and serves as a raw material for pharmaceutical products. TPA is also ideal to produce polyethylene terephthalate, which is widely used in packaging solutions of food, beverages, personal care & cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, and household products.

Growing requirement of polyester staple fibers and yarns primarily from the textile sector should drive 3,5-dimethylcumene market growth. Terephthalic acid finds extensive usage to produce polyester staple fibers which help apparel manufacturers improve shrinkage, reduce production costs, enhance durability and wrinkling profile. Moreover, growing per-capita disposable income and significant rate of industrialization have resulted in growing food & beverage consumption which should stimulate terephthalic acid demand from packaging sector.
