  • Description
  • Table of Contents

The global xylene market is expected to record a CAGR of around 5% during the forecast period. The major factor driving the market studied is the increasing demand from the rapidly growing end-user industries.

Key Highlights

  • Toxic effects of xylene and its types and an increase in consumer awareness regarding the use of plastic-free products are expected to hinder the growth of the market studied.
  • Cheaper feedstock through shale oil discoveries is likely to act as an opportunity, during the forecast period.

Key Market Trends

Solvent Application to Dominate the Market

  • Majority of xylene is used as a solvent for rubber, leather, and printing industries. Other various applications of xylene include chemical intermediates and blending agents for high-motor and aviation fuels and breathing devices (inhalers).
  • It is very good at dissolving compounds that dissolve poorly in water. Its ability to do so stems from its properties and its chemical structure. Xylene is volatile, which means it evaporates readily. For this reason, it is used in situations where the manufacturer needs to dissolve a compound, but then evaporate the solvent.
  • It is a good cleaning agent for silicon wafers, steel, and is also used to sterilize several substances. Xylene is used as a feedstock in the production of petrol, gasoline, and jet fuel.
  • It is also used as a concrete sealer in laboratories to make baths with dry ice, in order to cool reaction vessels, and as a solvent to remove synthetic immersion oil from the microscope objective in light microscopy.
  • Thus, from the aforementioned points, a progressive scope for solvents segment of xylene market is seen in the forecast period.

United States to Dominate the North American Region

  • The United States ranks among the top three countries across the world in consumption of xylene. The rapid growth for xylene in the United States has been majorly driven by ample construction activities, which are being supported by the growing economy.
  • The United States is the second largest producer of automobiles in the world. low demand for passenger cars has declined the production units. Despite the decrease in the production of motor vehicles the demand for the paints & coatings and adhesives demonstrate the Extant demand and consumption for xylenes.
  • The construction industry in the United States witnessed a rapid growth as a result of increased private sector spending on residential construction.
  • Thus, with the rapid growth in building and construction, and other industries, the market for xylene is expected to rapidly increase in the United States, over the forecast period.

Competitive Landscape

The global xylene market is fragmented in nature. The major companies include Chevron Phillips Chemical Company, Exxon Mobil Corporation, Mitsubishi Gas Chemical Company, JXTG Nippon Oil & Energy Corporation, and Total SA among others.
