Market Synopsis:


Mixed xylene is a mixture of para-xylene, ortho-xylene, meta-xylene and ethylbenzene. The amount ethyl benzene present in the mixed xylene is generally less than 20%, however the distribution of xylene isomers in the mixture varies. Mixed xylene is flammable, colorless liquid with sweet odor. Mixed xylene is primarily a man made chemical. In terms of volume, the mixed xylene is one of the top 40 chemicals produced in US. The global mixed xylene market is expected to grow at healthy CAGR during forecast period of 2019-2023. One of the factors that drive the global mixed xylene market is growing use of it as a solvent for the end use industries such as paints & coatings and adhesives & sealants industry. Another factor that drives the mixed xylene market is use of it as a fuel blending to improve the octane number of the fuel. However, increasing consumer awareness regarding the use of plastic-free products and hazardous effects of the mixed xylene on the human health and environment may restrain the global mixed xylene market in near future.


Increasing research and development investment regarding use of bio-based mixed xylene in paints & coating and adhesives & sealants industry may offer new opportunities for mixed xylene market in the coming years.


Looking at the increasing demand companies such as Tonen General, Hyundai Chemical, Showa Shell, Ningbo Daxie Petrochemical, CNOOC Taizhou, Zhuhai Changlian and CNOOC Huayue have announced the increase in capacity of the mixed xylene in the year 2017.


Regional Analysis:


Asia-Pacific, North America, Europe, Latin America, and the Middle East & Africa are the five regions studied for the global mixed xylene market. Asia-Pacific is projected to be the largest and fastest growing region in the global mixed xylene market during the forecast period. Growing use of mixed xylene as solvent in industries such as paints & coatings, adhesives & sealants, chemical and printing are expected to boost its market in the region. Additionally, mixed xylene is mostly used as a raw material for manufacturing of agriculture pesticides and is expected to fuel its demand in the Asia Pacific region. 


North America accounted for second largest market share in global market Increasing use of gasoline in the US and increasing use of mixed xylene in gasoline to improve octane number (anti knocking) properties of gasoline is emerged as one of the driving factors for the market in North American region. Europe accounted for third largest market share in the global mixed xylene market. The rising demand for mixed xylene in the chemical, rubber and plastics industry in this region is expected to drive the regional market growth during the review period.


The market in the Middle East and African region are projected to witness a positive growth during the forecast period on account of improvement of conditions of industries after the political and economic downfall in 2015.
