Process Oil - Global Market Outlook (2017-2023)
According Stratistics MRC, The Global Process Oil Market is accounted for $4.11 billion in 2016 and expected tgrow at a CAGR of 5.4% treach $5.96 billion by 2023. The market is driven by growth of the end user industries, increasing renewable energy installations and demand for personal care products. However, limitations on the usage of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon (PAH) and rising environmental hazards will impede market growth. Furthermore, fall in crude oil prices will pose challenge for the market. Moreover, increasing demand for low viscosity oils and increasing demand for green oils (bio-based transformer oil) and next-generation process oils will be the trends that will gain traction.
Based on Material, the naphthenic segment is projected tbe the largest segment, as they are widely used for the manufacturing of various products. Being rich in aromatic hydrocarbons, the oil displays a high solvency advantage for certain types of additives. In the tire industry, it works as extender oil in tire rubber and oil-extended polymers. Naphthenic oil for the anti-caking system of fertiliser pellets contribute ta more attractive product. For instance, in 2016, Nynas AB has produced new high-viscosity product, Nytex 842, tmeet the growing market demand for highly refined, high molecular weight process oils.
The paraffinic segment is expected tgrow significantly in terms of CAGR during the forecast period. Solvent extracted paraffinic oils are normally 90-95 VI oils that have high flash points, good color stability, low volatility, and a saturate level of 75-93. Hydrocracked paraffinic oils have a slightly higher flash than solvent extracted oils, clear in color, slightly lower volatility, and a saturate level of 98-99. These oils are particularly good in applications needing low color with stability or in high heat environments.
Among applications, the tire & rubber segment dominated the market because of the increasing surge for fuel efficiency and lower energy consumption in the automotive industry. Asia Pacific accounted for the maximum share of the market which attributes tthe growth in the polymer and textile industries. Additionally, increase in the trade of automobiles has boosted the tire and rubber sector. North America and Latin America are expected twitness significant growth during the forecast period. In the Latin America, the demand for high quality process oil is gaining traction. Europe holds for the highest consumption of aromatic process oil, due tthe beneficial impact of regulations. Despite EU regulations banning distillate aromatic extract, tire labeling legislation and the burgeoning effect of these regulations on other markets is changing the industry.
