    Mineral Turpentine Market

    Mineral turpentine, also known as a mineral spirit, which is a combination of petroleum hydrocarbons. It is a transparent, colorless liquid that is non-corrosive and chemically stable. In the end-use industries of paint & varnish, textiles, metal cleaning, and rubber, it is used as solvents and diluents.

    The demand on the global market has been stimulated by the increase in the use of mineral turpentine in the end-use sectors such as paints & coatings, adhesives, and inks & dyes. Mineral turpentine is frequently used in solvent applications including cleaning solvents, degreasing solvents, and aerosol solvents due to its interaction with aliphatic and alicyclic hydrocarbons. Moreover, other applications of mineral turpentine include wood preservative solvents, varnishes, and lacquer solvents. The paint industry is the largest consumer of mineral turpentine, owing to its extensive use as a paint thinner and cleaning agent for paint brush cleaning. All these factors drive the growth of the global mineral turpentine market.

    However, the global market for mineral turpentine is hampered by health risks connected to prolonged exposure. The presence of mineral turpentine in the environment may or may not lead to exposure and cause health hazards. Breathing, consumption, and skin contact with the mineral turpentine are harmful. Health hazards associated with ingestion or exposure to mineral turpentine also depend upon factors such as the dose or amount of mineral turpentine exposure and duration of exposure.

    Long-term consumption of mineral turpentine leads to abdominal pain and drowsiness. Moreover, long-term exposure also leads to heart problems and pneumonitis (severe lung damage). Ingestion of mineral turpentine directly into the lungs may further increase the risk of nausea. Other risks associated with the ingestion of mineral turpentine vapor include nose & throat irritation, shortness of breath, and headache. All these factors are anticipated to restrict the growth of the global mineral turpentine market.

    However, it is anticipated that the application of mineral turpentine in the paint industry would create additional opportunities in the market for mineral turpentine. The addition of the mineral turpentine reduces the viscosity of the paint and reduces the drying time. Additionally, mineral turpentine aids in the smoothness of paint products, which is another significant factor that boosts the demand for mineral turpentine globally. Other applications of mineral turpentine include wood preservation products, grease removers, preventing corrosion of metal working fluids, and automotive cleaning & polishing products. All these factors collectively increase the demand for mineral turpentine in the global market and are thereby anticipated to offer new opportunities during the forecast period.

    Growth in demand for mineral turpentine in the automotive industry

    The automotive ancillary industry requires significant maintenance for machines and tools used in the production of products. These machines and operating tools need regular cleaning to function well. Mineral turpentine is used as a solvent to remove oil, grease, dirt, and loose particles from machines. The application of premium paints and coatings in the automobile industry is experiencing growth. The surge in demand for mineral turpentine in the automobile industry is expected to boost the growth of the global mineral turpentine market.

    Furthermore, global sales of mineral turpentine in the automotive industry is increasing owing to the rise in the production of vehicles, coupled with robust growth of the automotive sector in countries such as Brazil, China, Mexico, India, and South Korea. In addition, the surge in trends of automotive restorations and refurbishing is likely to reflect favorably on the sales prospects of automotive mineral turpentine in the aftermarket vertical. At the same time, the rapid adoption of low-aromatic mineral turpentine in the automotive sector is likely to boost the growth of the global automotive mineral turpentine market during the forecast period.

    Increased demand for paints in the construction industry

    The growth of the global mineral turpentine market is propelled by modest jet kerosene prices and an increase in demand from the paints & coating end-use industry. This population growth has increased the annual demand in various industries such as construction, manufacturing, and others. The surge in the number of applications of paints & coatings in industries such as construction, automobile, manufacturing, and others drives the demand for mineral turpentine in the paints & coating industry. However, the solvents used in paints and coatings, including mineral turpentine, complement these goods. The mineral turpentine market expansion is fueled by the extensive use of mineral turpentine as a solvent for paint, varnish, and lacquers, among others.

    Furthermore, growth in construction activities around the globe is projected to drive the market growth of construction paints and coatings. The increasing population is also creating demand for residential infrastructure which in turn is boosting demand for paints and coatings. Moreover, rapid growth in the manufacturing industries around the globe is expected to augment the market growth of construction paints and coatings. For Instance, according to a report published by United Nations in 2018, the current estimation indicates that nearly 83 million people are being added to the global population every year. Even with the decline in fertility level, the global population is expected to reach 8.6 billion by 2030.

    However, mineral turpentine is an aromatic organic solvent and a high level of exposure to mineral turpentine leads to toxic effects such as chemical burns, nausea, and others. In addition, prolonged exposure can cause chronic central nervous system disorder.
