South Korea's drive to expand paraxylene (PX) will tap into China's massive deficit in the polyethylene terephthalate (PET) chain. But BMI's latest South Korea Petrochemicals Report warns that as Chinese economic growth cools and its capacities develop, export-led growth will have to diversify. Xylenes capacities surged to 10.5mn tpa in 2014, compared to 6mn tpa in 2010. PX demand has been strong in recent years, in tandem with new purified terephthalic acid (PTA) plant startups in China. However, demand is not likely to increase further, as no PTA plant startups are planned in 2015.
