Rubber process oil market is growing due to rise in sales of automobiles, usage of rubber process oils also emphatically reduces the end use rubber products; the effects of these factors are mentioned below:

  • Rise in sales of automobiles: One of the major applications of rubber process oil is in the production of tyres for automobiles, which is experiencing rapid demand increase. This increasing demand for automobiles is expected to have a significant impact on the overall demand for tyres as they are the basis for the mobility of vehicles, which will subsequently affect the market for rubber process oil
  • Usage of rubber process oils also emphatically reduces the end use rubber products: One of the major benefits that rubber process oil involves is enhancing the existing characteristics and features of end use rubber products, which therefore reduce their consumption in the short term. This reduction of product demands is expected to have a positive effect on the environmental side of things as the production of rubber-based products involves emission of certain compounds which are not environmental-friendly

Product launches and strategic expansion undertaken by the players:

  • In March 2019, Nynas announced the launch of “NYTEX BIO 6200”, a tyre and rubber processing oil manufactured with the help of renewable feedstock helping meet the growing demand of bio-based products from the industry. This will help tyre and rubber products manufacturers complement their sustainability goals while not compromising on any technical benefits of mineral-based oil
  • In January 2018, Brenntag AG announced that they had acquired a majority stake of sixty-five percent in Raj Petro Specialties which will significantly help them in establishing a greater presence of the company in India. The combined synergies of both the companies will improve also focus on expansion plans while expanding the industries that the company services
