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 Europe Meta Xylene Market has around 17.4% of market share value in 2013, and is projected to reach 20.3% by 2018, growing at a CAGR of 3.1%. Europe 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 purified terephthalic acid which used in pharmaceutical industry. Spain is the largest consumer of Meta Xylene in Europe, consuming about almost 9.5% 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, for 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 this process meta-xylene is recovered from a mixture with other Caromatic 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.


The European chemical industry is a significant part of the country’s economy. The industry is divided in four segments which include: Base chemicals, Specialty chemicals, Pharmaceuticals, and Consumer chemicals. Germany is the largest chemical producer in Europe, followed by France, Italy, and The Netherlands. These four countries together account for 64.0% of the Europe chemical sales. In the past, most of Europe’s chemical industry growth was driven by domestic sales, but these days, the country’s growth is shared dependent on both the domestic and the export market. Spain is the major consumer of Meta Xylene in Europe, accounting for almost 54.5% of the total consumption. Subsequent to the Spain are Germany and Italy.
