Synopsis of Xylene Market


Xylene is an organic compound obtained by catalytic reforming and coal carbonization process in the production of coke fuel. It is a hydrocarbon with greasy, and colorless in nature. Moreover, its quick evaporation, good dissolving ability, and growing consumption in major industries are the important trends and factors influencing its market confidently. On account of its properties, xylene is used in various applications such as automotive, textile, chemical, oil & gas, leather, paints & coatings, rubber, and others


Among the various segments in xylene market, the o-xylene segment has witnessed a significant growth due to its extensive use as a solvent in paint thinners, nail polish removers, glues, and correction fluids. It is widely utilized as an industrial feedstock for producing phthalic anhydride. This intermediate is then used in the production of plastic from vinyl chloride in end-use industries. Moreover, xylene is also used as an alternative fuel in heavy engines. It is estimated that the o-xylene segment is set to grow at a higher CAGR than the other segments owing to its boundless use as intermediates, solvents, and others in oil & gas industries. The growing production of polyethylene terephthalate (PET) and pure isophthalic acid (PIA) in major industries are set to drive the xylene market over the assessment period, 2017-2023. The market by application is segregated into automotive, textile, chemical, oil & gas, leather, paints & coatings, rubber, and others. The automotive sector is the leading segment due to extensive consumption of the product in sealing, and coating of numerous automotive parts such as engine train, interior & exterior parts of the body, and others. Moreover, the increasing use of the product in acrylate concrete sealer in various sectors such as paints & coatings, textile, and others are propelled to drive the market over the assessment period.
