O-Xylene Price Trend for the H1 of 2023


In Asia, the price trend of o-Xylene fluctuated in the first two quarters of 2023. In the initial phase, the prices declined due to the weak demand from the downstream sectors and ample availability of the product in the region.

But in the subsequent phase, the prices started to improve as the market regained its momentum after a long stretch of lunar new year holidays, especially in China. However, the trend stabilized and eventually declined in Q2 as the supply-demand dynamics normalized, given the over-supply of products in the market amid bearish demands.


In Europe, the prices of o-Xylene were stable throughout the first and second quarters of 2023. In this region, the major influencing factors were the stagnant purchasing potential of buyers and consistent demand from the end-user industries. The improving market sentiments, gradually increasing demand, slow production activities, and thus the depletion in the level of inventories further supported the o-Xylene market.

North America

A mixed trend in the prices of o-Xylene was observed in the North American region. The prices struggled to maintain stability in the initial months of the first quarter of 2023 but were supported by the positive demand outlook from the end-user sector and ample product availability to counter this demand. But soon enough, in the middle of the first quarter and throughout the second quarter, the price trend declined as manufacturers were forced to reduce their operation rates due to the weak demand from the downstream sectors.
