Polytrimethylene Terephthalate (PTT) Market

Industry Overview:

Polytrimethylene Terephthalate (PTT) is a semi-crystalline polymer manufactured by polycondensation of trimethylene glycol with both a dimethyl terephthalate and a terephthalic acid. It finds major utility in the industrial and residential carpet market. Polytrimethylene terephthalate has comparable optical residences as that of polyethylene terephthalate fibers. However, its elastic restoration is beyond that of polyethylene terephthalate (PET) and polybutylene terephthalate (PBT). Polytrimethylene terephthalate is soft, and resistant to stretching, and wrinkle resistance. The cloth is recognized for its fairly elastic houses in the use of carpets, which can spring returned in shape as needed, and still, offer the required tensile electricity needed. The material additionally guarantees new avenues for the boom in the close to future as development in technological know-how drives new textiles in the care sector, which currently relies on PTT substances for components like seatbelts. The material is also touted as the future fiber, thanks to its promising use in engineering thermoplastics, films, non-woven threads, and monofilaments. One of the most promising applications of polytrimethylene terephthalate lies in the manufacturing of cellular cases or housings. The growth of the 5G technology will pressure a robust increase for the market soon. PTT primarily based compounds show off several most useful traits along with quick-drying, heat retention, resistance to stretching, softness, wrinkle resistance, high stiffness, and expanded tensile and flexural strength. These amazing traits have resulted in merchandising demand from the fabric and carpet industries. It also has a polished surface and a flowing finish. The product’s gold standard dimensional stability and uniform shrinkage as in contrast to its competing material PBT has helped in increasing its growth in the Polytrimethylene terephthalate market over the previous few years.

COVID-19 impact on Polytrimethylene Terephthalate (PTT):

To combat the unique coronavirus, organizations have been pressured to close temporarily, improvement has been halted, social isolation has continued and other measures have been adopted that have affected every phase of life. The thermoplastic enterprise has been poorly affected by way of severe economic despair and the pandemic-related decline of the car industry. Globally, governments are promoting private protective gear like face shields to end the spread of the illness. Currently, manufacturers prefer thermoplastic polymers for making this PPE because of its exquisite resistance against impact, heat, and chemicals. They will aid thermoplastic organizations to regain their footing, which could lead to a make bigger in Polytrimethylene Terephthalate manufacturing in the future years.


Demand in the carpet and film industry is driving the growth of the market:

The market for Polytrimethylene Terephthalate used to be primarily pushed by way of the industrial and residential carpet market. Polytrimethylene Terephthalate is used in textile enterprises as it can be spun in yarn and fibers. It can be used in textiles and apparel, non-woven, films, engineering thermoplastics, and monofilaments. For the automobile sector, carpets made of polytrimethylene terephthalate are utilized. This fabric finds purposes in apparel, domestic furnishing, and car upholstery. Polytrimethylene Terephthalate composites and bio-composites can be a predominant possibility for the market.


High costs related to the product will restrain the growth of the market:

Higher manufacturing costs and patented processes can be a major restraint for the market in upcoming years. There are many processes through which this can be created and also there are high chances that the process we are using can be copied easily and, therefore, the cost of the manufacturing will increase.

This research report on the global Polytrimethylene Terephthalate (PTT) Market has been segmented and sub-segmented based on type, application, delivery mode, end-user, and region.

Polytrimethylene Terephthalate (PTT) Market - By Type:

  • Petroleum-based

  • Bio-based based

Petroleum-based Polytrimethylene Terephthalate is estimated to dominate the global bio-based Polytrimethylene Terephthalate market in the upcoming years due to the fact of its more cost-effective price than bio-based PTTs, which have extra significant manufacturing costs. Polytrimethylene Terephthalate, a petroleum-based material, is used in a variety of applications in addition to fibers and engineering plastics. At the equal time, bio-based Polytrimethylene Terephthalate is in most cases used for movie materials due to its top-quality mechanical qualities.

Polytrimethylene Terephthalate (PTT) Market - By Application:

  • Fiber

  • film

  • Others

Based on application, Polytrimethylene Terephthalate can be used as a fiber for high-performance applications. Polytrimethylene terephthalates are lightweight and no longer absorb water easily. Polymer fibers have the lowest thermal conductivity of all engineering plastics, making them useful in load-bearing buildings that require insulation from heat or bloodless with the aid of transferring minimal warmness to their surroundings. Polytrimethylene terephthalate (PTT) Film materials are used in packaging, laminating, and many other industries. Polytrimethylene terephthalate has one of the lowest coefficients of friction among engineering plastics It also has notable abrasion resistance.

Polytrimethylene Terephthalate (PTT) Market - By Region:

  • North America

  • Europe

  • Asia-Pacific

  • Latin America

  • The Middle East

  • Africa

Geographically, Europe was once the main area in the Polytrimethylene terephthalate market. The demand is excessive due to the large demand from the car upholstery industry. Germany and UK are the principal markets for PTT. Europe used to be accompanied by way of Asia Pacific. The demand for PTT is good-sized from carpets and the clothing market. The North American market is anticipated to develop and is likely to exhibit higher demand in upcoming years owing to the huge demand for PTT from the domestic furnishing and composites market. The Rest of the World market is likely to showcase constant demand for polytrimethylene terephthalate in the subsequent few years.
