Rubber Process Oil Market, By Type (Naphthenic Oil, Paraffin, Aromatic, and Specialty), By Applicati

Published Date: | Report Code : CH1943871


The Rubber Process Oil Market is expected to promise high growth owing to an increase in demand for automotive tires in recent years. Increasing demand from applications including natural and synthesis is expected to drive the growth of the market.

Rubber materials are widely used. Rubbers are commercially used to manufacture products ranging from rubber bands and toys to large-sized tires of automotive vehicles as well as aircraft. Rubber process oil is used for processing and manufacturing rubber products. This oil is used in several applications of rubber, such as tire & rubber, polymer, personal care, textile, and others.

Segment Insights

Rubber oil helps to improve the dispersion of fillers and flow characteristics of the compound. Moreover, it enhances the physical properties and characteristics of products. Rubber process oil is used in a variety of automotive products, such as rubber parts of trucks, cars, and motorcycles. Rubber process oils are both natural and synthetic.

On the basis of type, the rubber process oil market has been segmented into naphthenic oil, paraffin, aromatic, and specialty oils, such as Treated Distillate Aromatic Extracted Solvent (TDAE), Residual Aromatic Extracted Solvent (RAE), and Mild Extracted Solvent (MES). The naphthenic process oil is a light-colored, non-staining compound, which has superb compatibility with synthetic elastomers as well as high thermal stability. The demand for this oil is expected to grow due to low PCA content. TDAE is a non-carcinogenic rubber process oil that has high aromatic content and is environment-friendly and non-toxic. Its high viscosity-gravity constant (VGC) helps in the decline of heat build-up between tires and the road.

The paraffinic rubber processing oil is manufactured from highly refined solvent extracted base stocks of low sulfur content. They are used in applications, such as heat resistant conveyor belts and steam hoses.

Fluctuations in raw material prices, European Union regulation banning the use of PCA (polycyclic aromatics) in tire manufacturing, and increasing use of oil, such as soybean oil, are factors that are expected to hamper the market growth. However, this market will grow in the Asia Pacific region due to the increasing demand from the automotive industry. 

Key Factors Impacting Market Growth:

  • Increase in demand for automotive tires
  • A decline in the cost of end products of rubber compounds 

Regional Analysis

On the basis of the region, the rubber process oil market has been segmented by North America, Western Europe, Eastern Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East, & Rest of the World. North America and Western Europe are some of the major markets that are also traditional suppliers of chemicals such as specialty chemicals, bulk chemicals, and so on. Major companies in this market are headquartered in North America and Western Europe.  This region has been witnessing a number of transitions in terms of productions of chemicals and respective applications by end-use industries.
