Process Oil Market by Type, Function, Production

Dublin, Sept. 06, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The “Process Oil Market by Type (Aromatic, Paraffinic, Naphthenic, Non-carcinogenic), Function (Extender Oil, Plasticizer, Solvent, Defoamer), Production Technology (Convention Route, Gas to Liquid, Bio-based), Application and Region – Global Forecast to 2027” report has been added to’s offering.

The market size of process oil is estimated to grow from USD 4.8 billion in 2022 to USD 5.3 billion by 2027, at a CAGR of 2.1% during the forecast period. The process oil market is on course for intense growth across different applications such as tire & rubber, polymer, personal care, textile, and other applications.

Tire & rubber was the leading application segment of process oil market in 2021

By application, the tire & rubber segment was the largest in the process oil market, in 2021, in terms of value. The growth of this segment can be attributed to the increase in demand for process oils as carrier oils, plasticizers, dust control agents, and processing aids in the automotive industry.

Naphthenic type was the leading segment of process oil market in 2021

By type, the naphthenic segment was the largest in the process oil market, in 2021, in terms of value. Naphthenic process oils are light-colored and non-staining compounds with properties such as thermal stability and excellent compatibility with synthetic elastomers. These oils have greater solvating power than paraffinic oils. They are highly stable at high temperatures and have low viscosity.

Asia Pacific was the leading region of process oil market in 2021

Asia Pacific is one of the major markets for naphthenic process oil, in terms of value. The Asia Pacific is the leader in the process oil market, and this dominance is expected to continue during the forecast period as well. Key countries in the Asia Pacific process oil market include China, Japan, South Korea, and India, which dominated the region’s overall market in terms of volume, in 2021. The growing rubber and tire industries in emerging countries of Asia Pacific are expected to drive the growth of the process oil market in the region.
