Terephthalic acid (TPA) is an organic compound made by air oxidation of p-xylene in the presence of acetic acid (HAc). It has a high melting point and white crystalline powdery texture and is widely used to make polyethylene terephthalate (PET) resins and polyester fibers and films. As it is insoluble in ether, water, and alcohol, it finds extensive applications in the manufacturing of industrial goods, including adhesives and sealant chemicals, intermediates, lubricants, paint additives, plasticizers, solvents, textiles, and electronics. Furthermore, it is used as an intermediate in the production of oligomeric TPA esters.
The increasing consumption of ready-to-eat (RTE) food products on account of the busy lifestyles of individuals and rapid urbanization represent one of the key factors catalyzing the demand for TPA in making food packages, such as plastic bottles and cans. In addition, as TPA is employed in the pharmaceutical industry as an excipient in drugs, the rising prevalence of chronic diseases is contributing to the market growth. Apart from this, increasing construction activities in the residential and commercial spaces are positively influencing the usage of TPA as a carrier to achieve high-quality coatings. Besides this, the growing use of purified TPA in military applications, along with rising investments in the defense sector by governing agencies of numerous countries, is creating a positive outlook for the market. Moreover, the expanding use of TPA to manufacture light-colored, high-strength, and solvent-free adhesives used to bond metal, wood, paper, and synthetics in shoe fabrication, lamination, and automotive sub-assembly is anticipated to drive the market.
