White oil is also used in the cosmetic lip care products.
- Rise the demand in rubber industry
Mineral oils can be used as plasticizers aids during the production of the elastomer compound. The demand of mineral oil in the rubber industry can be very different which is depending on the type of polymer used. For example, Styrene-Butadiene-Rubber (SBR) used in the tyre of passenger car which requires high aromatic content to expand wet grip, rolling resistance, and abrasion. Instead, non-polar rubbers such as the use of mineral oil in Ethylene-Propylene-Diene-Monomer (EPDM) with a low aromatic content are also expected to increase the growth of the mineral oil.
The increasing demand for mineral oil in the cosmetic and personal care industry will bring huge development opportunities for the mineral oil market. The usage in cosmetic products is similar to that of pharmaceuticals. This serves special quality such as high temperature resistance in tropical regions or sun protection. Furthermore, the rising urbanization land the increasing disposable income of various individuals over all the globe which have led to an rise in the sales of personal and cosmetics care products. Hence, these factors will significantly shape the growth of the mineral oil market.
However, the changing costs of crude oil may obstruct the growth of the global mineral oil market. Furthermore, the toxicity caused by the prolonged use of mineral oil, for example, stinging, irritation, redness, etc. are other factors that could affect the growth of the main market. Growing use of high grade mineral oil for biomedicines and aromatherapy is important trend witnessed in the mineral oil market.
