COVID-19 Analysis:

  • The COVID-19 pandemic had moderate impact on the paraffin oil market. It also has an influence on the supply of cosmetics & personal care as well as the import and export of paraffin oil. The demand for paraffin oils witnessed 5% drop in 2020. The scale of decline varied from one country to another. The drops, between 5% and 10%, were higher in matured markets such as the U.S., Germany, France, and the UK because these countries were among the most affected during the first wave of COVID-19, encountering temporary closures or decline in production activities in different factories.
  • As consumers purchased less makeup and clothes, demand for paraffin oils dropped in the cosmetics & personal care and textile industries. Meanwhile, the closure of restaurants and bars led to a reduction in paraffin oils demand in the food sector. On contrary, the pharmaceuticals industry witnessed an upsurge in paraffin oils demand due to rise in pharmaceuticals production and consumers buying more than their average number of medications during the COVID-19 crisis.
  • Further, the COVID-19 pandemic has had a detrimental effect on the cosmetics industry globally, causing great loss to businesses that cannot be measured causing tremendous loss to businesses that cannot be quantified. For instance, the online orders for beauty and personal care products in India went down by about 70% compared to the 2019. However, demand for cosmetics and personal care has been slightly increasing from mid-2020 in the U.S.
  • Consequently, increase in demand from the pharmaceuticals industry coupled with rise in demand for cosmetics and personal care is anticipated to propel the paraffin oil market during the pandemic.
