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 carbonisation in the manufacture of coke fuel. The global demand for xylene has been growing sharply over the last decade. Much of the increase in demand for xylene comes from the Asia-Pacific region, and the same trend is expected to continue in the near future.

Polymers are the building blocks of synthetic fibers or polyester. Polymers used for synthetic fibers are produced from intermediates (which in turn have been produced from crude oil) and by applying a catalyst. Key intermediates are p-Xylene (made from xylene), teraphthalic acid, ethylene glycol and acrylonitrile; catalysts – manganese, cobalt and antimony oxide – are used to control the processes. According to the Textile World magazine, the world of polyester production has begun to be like a monopoly, led by China. The speed with which Asia has dominated fiber production is astounding. The Asia-Pacific region is emerging as the textile industry hub of the world. The advantage of low cost because of cheap labor is aiding the growth of the textile industry in this region. There has been a continuous shift in the manufacturing industry from developed regions of the world such as North America and Western Europe, to take advantage of the low-cost facilities available in Asia-Pacific.

The Asia-Pacific xylene market is driven by the severe shortage of cotton production in the region and high demand for synthetic fibers in China. This will enable the xylene market will continue to grow in the future. As a result of several new paraxylene production plants in Asia, purified terephthalic acid and paraxylene rates will decrease, which will further increase the demand for xylene globally.
