Ortho-Xylene Market Overall Demand & Supply Dynamics, Industry Processes & Cost Structures, Forecast to 2023

December 5, 2018

PS logoThe increasing demand for dyes, plasticizers and resins has led to the strong growth of ortho-xylene market. Phthalic anhydride (a major application of ortho-xylene) is used to produce plasticizers, which are mainly employed in the construction of industries and automobiles. The primary end-users of phthalic anhydrides are unsaturated polyester resins and phthalates, which show extensive growth opportunities in near future.

Ortho-xylene is a commercial isomer of xylene. It consists of at least 95% ortho-xylene and five percent para-xylene and meta-xylene. Xylenes are petrochemicals formed by the coal carbonization process and catalytic reforming, which is used in the manufacture of coke fuel. They are used in medical technologies and various industries as solvents.

The extraction of ortho-xylene is done through distillation from the xylene stream in a plant intended for para-xylene production. It is a constitutional isomer of meta-xylene and para-xylene. Moreover, ortho-xylene is produced with its isomers meta-xylene and para-xylene.

On the basis of application, ortho-xylene is majorly used in the production of phthalic anhydride (PAN), an aromatic acid anhydride. Nearly 90% of ortho-xylene produced globally is used in the manufacturing of phthalic anhydride, which is commercially available as a colorless molten material with a strong smell or as white, free-flowing fragments.

The U.S. is witnessing slow growth in the ortho-xylene industry because of the decrease in demand for PVC, herbicides and bactericides.


The instability of crude oil prices has a direct impact on xylene prices. The increased commercial usage of recyclable products in many developed countries has led to decrease in demand of phthalic anhydride which is another major factor hindering the growth of the ortho-xylene market.
