Meta Xylene (Metaxylene) is an aromatic hydrocarbon isomer of xylene produced by catalyst for various commercial applications, most notably for the plastics, paints and coatings industry. The Asia-Pacific Meta Xylene Market has around 66.8% of market share value in 2013, and is projected to reach 85.0% by 2018, growing at a CAGR of 4.3%. Asia-Pacific Meta Xylene market has grown considerably during the past few years and is expected to grow at a more rapid pace in the next five years, currently more than half of the total global market is consumed in manufacturing of Isophthalic acid which is used in pharmaceutical industry. Japan is the largest consumer of Meta Xylene in Asia-Pacific, consuming around 26.1% of the total global demand in 2013.


Metaxylene is isomer of xylene with two methyl group attached at Meta positions of the benzene. It is used for the production of isophthalic acid, of agriculture chemicals as pharmaceuticals. Isophthalic acid is used in applications like paint, varnish remover, and aerosol paint concentration. It is also used as a raw material to produce smaller volume chemicals. A new process for improved meta-xylene yield is being developed from C8 aromatics hydrocarbon. In the process meta-xylene is recovered from a mixture with other C8 aromatic hydrocarbons including ortho-xylene by liquid phase adsorptive separation. A process for producing high purity meta-xylene, comprising simulated moving bed adsorption and crystallization is being developed, which will produce meta-xylene for at least 99.5% purity.


Asia-Pacific is the most promising chemical market and is expected to be the same in the near future. The significance of Asia-Pacific in the chemical industry cannot be undervalued.  The continuous rise in production of end products for use within the region and for exports derives a huge demand for the chemicals.
