									Xylene Global Supply Dynamics to 2020 - Middle East and China Witnessing Huge
Growth in Production

Global Xylene Production is Expected to Grow at a CAGR of 3.7% till 2020

Global xylene production in 2000 was 21.9 million tons. It grew at a Compound Annual
Growth Rate (CAGR) of 5.4% from 2000 to 2009. Production in 2009 was 35.1 million
tons.

Global xylene production is expected to grow at a CAGR of 3.7% from 2009 to 2020 to
reach 52.2 million tons.

Global xylene capacity in 2009 was 43.8 million tons. The Asia-Pacific has the largest
capacity share, followed by the Middle East. Xylene capacity in the Asia-Pacific in 2009
was 28.2 million tons. Its share in the global capacity was 64.5%. Xylene capacity in the
Middle East was 7.1 million tons and its share was 16.1%. North America had a capacity
of 5.3 million tons followed by Europe, and South and Central America with a capacity
of 2.1 million tons and 1.1 million tons respectively. The share of North America in
global xylene capacity was 12.1% followed by Europe with a share of 4.8% and South
and Central America with a share of 2.5%.

Xylene is derived mainly from two key feed stocks. These include natural gas and
naphtha.

Global xylene capacity in 2009 was 43.8 million tons. Of this capacity, 81.1% was based
on naphtha as a feedstock. The remaining 18.9% of this capacity was based on natural
gas as the feedstock.

The Middle East has the huge advantage of access to low cost feedstock, which makes
the production there highly cost effective. China has a large population base and the
demand in China is very high. To meet this high demand, China currently imports in
large quantities from other countries. However, China itself is also investing heavily in
production capacity to meet this demand. Therefore, in both the Middle East and China,
production is growing at a very high rate.

In the Middle East, xylene production grew at a CAGR of 8.9% from 2000 to 2009.
Xylene production in the Middle East in 2009 was 6.6 million tons. Xylene production in
China grew at a CAGR of 15.9% from 2009 to 2020 to reach 5.3 million tons. As a result,
the Middle East and China are witnessing a huge growth in production.
