What are the Benefits of Crude Sulfate Turpentine Market?

Crude sulfate turpentine oils extracted during kraft wood pulp processing and sold as a commodity. In this process, cellulose fibers are separated and used in papermaking. Crude sulfate turpentine is acting as a fuel with the presence of components like alpha-pinene, beta-pinene, and others. The production of crude sulfate turpentine oil is done using technology. Crude sulfate turpentine serves as a raw material for the manufacture of turpentine, polymer additives, spices, pine, spices, and products related to the production of pine oil. Turpentine is extracted from oleoresin, which is collected from trees. Crude sulfate turpentine is produced as a by-product when cooking cellulose with sulfate. In addition, turpentine sulfate has compounds that contain sulfur, since it appears as a product of sulfate cooking. Crude sulfate turpentine is used as a raw material for the dilution of oil paints, the production of varnishes, and in the chemical industry. Crude sulfate turpentine is also used in industrial applications.

Recent Developments in Crude Sulfate Turpentine Market:

  1. With the rising call for electric vehicles (EVs), nickel sulfate production is estimated to increase from 211 kilotons (Kt) in 2019 to its peak of 450 Kt in 2027, reaching around 800 Kt by 2035. Nickel sulfate has historically been used in solution as an electrolyte in nickel plating, with other minor applications, such as in the manufacture of catalysts. More recently, it has become increasingly important as a feed chemical in the production of battery cathode materials, especially in lithium-ion batteries for electric vehicles.
  2. Azelis, a leading distributor of specialty chemicals and food ingredients, announced that it has signed an agreement to acquire 100% of the outstanding shares of Megafarma, a leading specialty distributor in Mexico for the pharmaceutical, food and veterinary industries. Headquartered in Mexico City, the company represents some of the most recognized raw material producers in the world and serves a large number of clients in all regions of Mexico. The integration of Megafarma will allow Azelis to access a promising market and create a solid platform for the growth of the global distribution business of specialty chemicals and food ingredients.
  3. Huntsman Corporation (NYSE: HUN) announced that the European Commission has approved the previously announced acquisition of Rockwood Holdings, Inc.'s Performance Additives and Titanium Dioxide (TiO2) businesses. Commission approval is subject to the sale of the Huntsman business associated with a product known as TR52 sold primarily in ink applications.
  4. Ingevity Corporation signed a deal to procure Georgia-Pacific's pine chemicals business for a valuation of USD 315 million. The acquisition has to undergo several regulatory approvals and customary closing constrains. Ingevity expects to complete the transaction by the end of 2017. The company manufactures the majority of its products at a Georgia-Pacific site in Crossett, Ark., USA, and employs approximately 70 people.
  5. Kraton Performance Polymers, a leading producer of styrene block copolymers, agreed to acquire pine chemical manufacturer Arizona Chemical from private equity firm American Securities for a cash price of $ 1.37 billion. The transaction values Arizona Chemical at 7.4 times Adjusted EBITDA for the 12 months ended June 30. Arizona Chemical's products are based on two main raw materials, crude tall oil and crude sulfate turpentine, both co-products of wood pulp.

Europe Crude Sulfate Turpentine Market Growth:

The crude oil sulfate turpentine market will witness healthy growth during the forecast period due to the chemical properties that make it the main ingredient in various industrial solvents.


The growth of crude sulfate turpentine oil is due to the increasing demand for organic products in many industries. The global market is expected to grow in the future due to the high consumption of household items and personal care products. Considering the consumer goods segment, there is always a variety of brands on the market with a wide range of products with differentiated characteristics due to high demand. Consumers are now looking for products that can satisfy them, but don't reward them. Oils, soaps, perfumes and deodorants are in demand and consumers prefer different types of products due to the benefits and properties they can offer today. These industries are growing around the world. As production increases in these industries, the demand for raw materials will increase. Crude sulfate turpentine has wide application as a solvent in the chemical industry, and there are also types of products such as alpha and beta, pinene, polymeric products, solid and liquid polyterpenic resins, camphen, isoborneol, monoterpene alcohol, and parazymene. It is applied in the manufacture of solvents, materials for making adhesives, suspending agents, biologically active substances, polymerization activators and flavoring additives. Therefore, changes in the growing end-user industry, consumer focus towards government initiatives promoting natural and environmentally friendly products, will boost the market for crude sulfate turpentine. These factors will drive the market in the coming years. The process of distilling crude oil of turpentine from sulfate is a slightly expensive process. Crude sulfate turpentine distillation requires high cost, and the recovery rate of pure sulfate turpentine oil is the lowest after kraft processing. Given the profit margins and losses from the crude sulfate turpentine manufacturing process, it may not be a viable business opportunity for investors. Nonetheless, the increase in the production of chemicals from turpentine used as a solvent and flavoring is another factor that is expected to drive the growth of the global market for turpentine sulfate.


Reduced consumption of crude sulfate turpentine products, availability of inexpensive petroleum-based products, reduced recovery of black liquor from kraft pulp manufacturing processes, and reduced output from paper mills are some of the factors limiting the world market for crude sulfate turpentine. In addition, the market for crude oil sulfate turpentine may face restrictions due to lack of investment. The large investment required for distillation limits the manufacturer's use of crude sulfate turpentine. Restrictions on the recovery of black wine through the Kraft process are also expected to hamper overall product growth.

Europe Crude Sulfate Turpentine Market Segmentation Analysis:

By type, the global market was dominated by Alpha Pinene, followed by Beta Pinene and Delta-3- Karen in 2018. Other tangible sectors, including p-cymene, dipentene and terpenes, are expected to record the highest growth rates due to the high application of p-cemene in the manufacture of essential oils and the increase of dipentene used as a solvent in cleaning products, paints and perfumes. Beta-pinene was an important product segment in 2019 and represented more than 40% of the total volume due to the presence of greater amounts of derivatives obtained from the Kraft pulp process. Additionally, the products can be sold directly to many industries, but Alpha Pinene requires additional processing prior to use in the final product.

The crude oil sulfate turpentine market is segmented into adhesives, aromatic chemicals, camphor, paints and printing inks, etc. depending on the application. Aromatic chemicals accounted for the largest market share in 2019. They are widely used in personal care products around the world. Aromatic chemicals are widely used in fast-moving consumables in densely populated countries such as India and China. These products are used as raw materials for the manufacture of a number of products, including spices and flavorings, and as an ingredient in the pharmaceutical industry. Turpentine, a natural raw material, has enormous potential in the personal care industry.

Impact of COVID 19 on the Europe Crude Sulfate Turpentine Market:

The COVID-19 pandemic and the consequent disruption of manufacturing activities will affect the availability of a variety of renewable chemicals. In addition, the current trade disruption will have a significant impact on the availability of chemical stocks in import-dependent countries. The situation that develops with the sudden outbreak of Coronavirus is expected to hamper market development.
