The product is manufactured from the refining of paraffinic and naphthenic crude oil feedstock and can be processed from natural gas by gas to liquid conversion technology. Royal Dutch Shell N.V. manufactures white oil from natural gas through the use of the Fischer-Tropsch process that converts natural gas to highly purified white oils with low aromatic hydrocarbon content. Volatile raw material prices, coupled with geophysical and political conflicts among key oil trading regions, are expected to affect the overall supply-demand scenario in the future. This, in turn, is anticipated to adversely influence the production and consumption of the product in the global market during the next few years.

A positive outlook toward the growth of the personal care, pharmaceutical, food, and polymer processing sectors has resulted in boosting the demand for the product in various developing and developed regions. Furthermore, rapidly mounting demand for the product in the agriculture, adhesives, and textile application markets are projected to be another significant factor supporting the growth of the market during the forecast period. Although the tight supply of raw materials, coupled with a drop in their prices, might hinder the market growth, a technological breakthrough is likely to contribute to the firm growth of the industry over the next couple of years.

The product is used in the production of pharmaceutical goods which include emollients, internal lubricants, ointments, and laxatives as an addition or as basic material. When combined with other synthetic goods, white oil has good antibacterial qualities and is chemically stable. The product is often used in medicinal applications due to its excellent mixing properties. As a result, the demand for the product is likely to rise in the forecast period as the pharmaceutical sector expands.
