Terephthalic Acid Production Cost Analysis 2020

Terephthalic acid is an example of an organic compound. This white solid is known as a commodity chemical that is used principally as a precursor to the polyester PET.

Terephthalic acid is often used in paint as a carrier. Terephthalic acid is also used as a raw material to make terephthalate plasticizers such as dioctyl terephthalate and dibutyl terephthalate. Moreover, it is widely used in the pharmaceutical industry as a raw material for certain drugs. Terephthalic acid-based polyesters and polyamides are used in hot melt adhesives. Furthermore, the acid is a common component for the synthesis of metal-organic frameworks.

Terephthalic acid is sometimes used as a filler in military smoke grenade weapons such as M90 vehicle-employed smoke grenade and the American M83 smoke grenade. It makes a thick white smoke that acts as an obscurant in the visual and near-infrared spectrum.

Procurement Resource provides an in-depth cost analysis of Terephthalic Acid production. The report incorporates the manufacturing process with detailed process and material flow, capital investment, operating costs along with financial expenses and depreciation charges.
