LONDON – Dimethyl terephthalate (DMT) market still retains its vulnerable state. The global consumption of the material has been in decline by approximately 0.5% for the last 5 years. The key factor causing this trend is the escaping competitiveness and tough market competition coming from substitutes. In a number of application areas PTA replaces DMT as a preferred and more economical material.
