Knowing the secrets of Crude Sulfate Turpentine Market

Global Crude Sulfate Turpentine Market was worth USD 235.7 million in 2019 and estimated to be growing at a CAGR of 4.14%, to reach USD 288.7 million by 2024.

Crude Sulfate Turpentine Market Introduction:

A chemical compound that burns to recover energy is crude turpentine sulphate. It is extracted while the kraft pulp is processed and sold as a commodity. In this process, the cellulose fiber is separated and used in papermaking. Raw sulphate turpentine acts as a fuel, which includes organic compounds such as beta-pinene, alpha-pinene and other terpenes. Production of crude sulphate turpentine is achieved using technology. The terpene hydrocarbon vapors are extracted from the evaporators and the digester and are further separated from the turpentine water. Raw sulphate turpentine is a natural material in the manufacture of products used in the production of polymeric additives, turpentine, pinenes, flavorings, perfumes and pine oil. Turpentine oil is extracted from oleoresin, which is collected from a tree.

Raw sulphate turpentine is obtained as a by-product of the Kraft process using substrates and catalysts. Sulphated turpentine includes terpene hydrocarbons and various sulfur compounds. Terpenes are an extensive and varied class of organic compounds from a variety of plants, particularly those belonging to the Pinopsida group.

Turpentine is mainly composed of alpha-pinene and beta-pinene with lower percentages of limonene, camphene, carene and terpene. Alpha pinene and beta-pinene are isomers of pinene. Terpenes are isomeric hydrocarbons belonging to the class of terpenes. Limonene, caffeine and carene are cyclic terpenes that are small amounts of turpentine.

Raw sulphate turpentine is mainly used in the production of perfumes and flavors. The primary end-use industries for sulphated crude oil are cosmetics, food and beverages. It is also used as a solvent for thinning oil-based paints and varnish production. It also acts as a raw material in the process of organic synthesis in the chemical industry, especially in scented (aromatic) chemical compounds.


Raw sulphate turpentine is extracted during the process of kraft pulp, which is then sold as a commodity. The process separates the cellulose fibers used to make paper. Gross turpentine sulphate is itself a fuel containing organic compounds, mainly alpha-pinene and beta-pinene and other terpenes. The technology for crude sulphated turpentine includes extraction of terpene hydrocarbon vapors from evaporators and the digester and is separated from turpentine water. Raw sulphated turpentine is a natural material for the manufacturer that produces pinenes, flavors, polymeric additives, pine oil, perfumes and turpentine. Turpentine is extracted from oleoresin from a tree. Turpentine is used as a commercial fuel source, an alternative to fossil fuels in applications such as lamps, furnaces, industrial boilers and rocket fuels.

 Growth factors

Due to the high consumption of household and personal care products, the global crude turpentine market is expected to grow in the future. The growth of crude sulphate oil is due to the increasing demand for environmentally friendly products in many industries. List of chemicals is made of oil is extended; however, it is widely used as a perfume, solvent and flavoring agent; These are some essential factors that should drive growth in the global market.

However, the reduction in crude sulphate turpentine consumption, the availability of cheaper petroleum products, the lower recovery of black liquor from the kraft pulp manufacturing process, the decrease in the production of paper mills are a few limiting factors that hinder the world market for crude sulphate turpentine.

 Market Trends

The use of raw sulfated turpentine by manufacturers is limited due to the significant investments required for distillation. This could be an important limiting factor for the market. The limited recovery of black liquor by the Kraft process is also expected to hamper overall product growth.

Alpha-pinene is used as an anti-inflammatory agent and is a component of a broad-spectrum antibiotic. Beta-pinene has a woody green fragrance, similar to that of pine, and is mainly used as an ingredient in perfumery. The aromas attributed to the hull include pine, sweet, woody, cedar and spicy; and its primary sources are rosemary, cedar and pine extract. Camphene is mainly used in flavorings (food additives) and perfumes. Limonene is the main olfactory ingredient in citrus fruits and is a common ingredient in cosmetics. It is also used as a flavoring agent in some medicines and food manufacturing, as well as as a cleaning solvent. Terpinene, especially alpha-terpinene, is a chemical flavoring agent used in the food and cosmetic industries.

Regional Analysis:

North America dominates the entire crude sulfate turpentine market due to sectors such as paints and flavoring chemicals, which are the primary consumers of turpentine sulfate. The United States and Canada are known manufacturers and consumers of raw sulfate turpentine. These countries also export the product to Africa and Asia-Pacific. In Asia-Pacific, China and India are the primary consumers, driven by the growing demand of the personal care products sector, which is also expected to grow due to the existing and growing population in the region.
