Terephthalic Acid Production Cost Report

Terephthalic acid is an organic compound that is widely used as a raw material in various industries, such as the electronics industry, chemical fiber industry, light industry, and the construction industry. Pure terephthalic acid (PTA) is often combined with other chemicals to obtain PET (polyester), which is further utilized in packaging and films to mold parts for electronics, automotive, industrial maintenance, and coil coatings. It commonly serves as an industrial aromatic precursor for polyethylene terephthalate (PET). Moreover, it also finds its applications in the production of plasticizers and polyester fibers/yarns for textiles & films and other diverse industries such as packaging, textiles, etc.

The market for this chemical compound is primarily driven by its applications in the manufacture of polyester fibers or yarns, films, plasticizers, packaging, and coil coatings, which increases its demand in the textile, plastic, packaging, and metal fabrication and manufacturing industries. Moreover, it is also utilized as raw material in electronics, chemical fiber, light, and construction industries, which further amplifies its market growth.

It is often used in packaging to mold parts for electronics and automotive, which boosts its demand in electronics and automotive industries. Moreover, the availability and cost of production of terephthalic acid’s feedstock (p-xylene, acetic acid, etc.), terephthalic acid market prices, distribution (including trading and shipping), logistics, etc., are some of the elements that influence industrial terephthalic acid procurement.

Raw Material for Terephthalic Acid Production

According to the Terephthalic Acid manufacturing plant project report, the major raw materials for Terephthalic Acid production include P-Xylene-Acetic Acid-Oxygen.

Manufacturing Process of Terephthalic Acid

The extensive Terephthalic Acid production cost report consists of the following industrial manufacturing process:

  • Production from p-Xylene: This method involves the catalytic oxidation process in which p-xylene is mixed with acetic acid solvent in the presence of cobalt (or manganese) acetate and bromide, followed by its oxidation with oxygen to transform into terephthalic acid in an oxidation reactor. The product is obtained in the form of a precipitate crude terephthalic acid (CTA), which is further purified to obtain purified terephthalic acid (PTA).

Terephthalic Acid is a condensation polymer. It is chemically known as Benzene-1,4-dicarboxylic acid. It is an industrial aromatic precursor for polyethylene terephthalate (PET). It finds its applications in diverse industries such as packaging, textile, etc. The chemical formula of terephthalic acid is C8H6O4 and its molecular weight is 166.13 g/mol. The density of 1.52 g/cm³. The limit of solubility of terephthalic acid in water is 17 to 19 mg/L at 25 °C.

The melting point of terephthalic is 300 °C (572 °F; 573 K). Polyester fibre is a long-chain polymer with an ester functional group in each repeating unit. Polyester fibre accounts for a sizeable portion of the total terephthalic acid produced globally. The qualities of polyester fibres include strong strength, resilience, and durability. They are washable, rapid drying, and resistant to various chemicals, abrasion, stretching, and shrinkage.
