Xylene is an aromatic hydrocarbon widely used in industrial and medical technology as a solvent. It is a colorless, sweet-smelling liquid or gas occurring naturally in petroleum, coal, and wood tar. It is a mixture of three different isomers i.e., meta-xylene, ortho-xylene, and para-xylene. These are major petrochemicals produced by catalytic reforming and also by coal carbonation in the manufacture of coke fuel. The global demand for xylene has been growing sharply over the last decade as a result of increased demand from end-user industries.

The European region is the third-largest market for xylene and is growing at a lower CAGR as compared with other regions. The xylene market witnessed great fluctuations in last few years as it is used in highly cyclical applications. Production of xylene is primarily associated with petrochemical and coal industries, with most being produced by the catalytic reforming of naphtha, a derivative of crude oil fractional. The petrochemical industry in Europe is driving the overall demand for xylene in European countries. The prices of downstream derivatives have also decreased in the last decade, which has indirectly generated higher demand for xylenes.
