M-xylene, also known as meta-xylene, is an isomer of ortho-xylene and para-xylene that consists of methyl groups at positions 1 and 3 of the benzene ring. An aromatic hydrocarbon, it is characterized by its colorless watery consistency, sweet odor, and insolubility in water. It is typically obtained from coal, wood and petroleum, and is a major component of gasoline and fuel oil. M-xylene can also be synthesized artificially in the laboratory. Since it is more stable than its other isomers, ortho and para xylene, it is extensively used in the manufacturing of isophthalic acid, inert ingredients in non-food pesticide products, dyes, polyester and alkyd resins, insecticides, and aviation fuel.
The market is primarily driven by the increasing adoption of isophthalic acid in the formulation of PET (polyethylene terephthalate) that is used for manufacturing plastic containers. This can be attributed to considerable growth in the polymer and plastic industries. In addition to this, the rapid utilization of high-quality alkyds and polyester resins for industrial coatings is leading to a higher uptake of isophthalic acid, which, in turn, is propelling the growth of the m-xylene market. Moreover, the rising demand for high-strength adhesives and sealants in a broad array of end-use industries is also positively impacting the market. Apart from this, the easy availability of cost-efficient feedstock via the growing shale oil discoveries are creating a positive outlook for the market. The market is further driven by the augmenting usage of m-xylene solvents in cosmetic products, such as paint thinners, nail polish removers and correction fluids. Some of the other factors contributing to the market growth include the escalating fiberglass-reinforced plastics applications, rapid industrialization and extensive research and development (R&D) activities conducted by key players.
