Product Insights

Beta-pinene was the leading product segment in 2018 and accounted for over 40% of the overall volume share owing to its presence in higher amounts among the derivatives obtained during the Kraft pulping process. In addition, the product can be directly sold to multiple industries, while alpha-pinene requires further processing before using it in final products.

Alpha-pinene is a colorless liquid derived from CST and is mainly used to synthesize linalool, terpineol, and sandalwood fragrance. Pure alpha-pinene is extracted from various sources, such as sage, citrus, eucalyptus, rosemary, conifer trees, and turpentine trees. Of all products, alpha-pinene is the most common and concentrated terpene.

Carene is likely to witness the highest CAGR of over 3% owing to its increasing application as a raw material in perfumes, cosmetics, flavors, and in the production of terpene resins. It is also used in various therapeutic and medicinal applications like sedative, memory stimulator, anti-inflammatory, antifungal, and speedy bone healing.

Application Insights

Aroma chemicals application segment accounted for the highest volume share in 2018. Extensive usage of these derivatives, as it is naturally sourced, in the manufacturing of various flavors and fragrances is likely to drive the segment further during the forecast years. Moreover, increasing per capita income levels, particularly in the developing regions like India and China are expected to have a positive impact on the demand for fragrances and flavors.

They are also used in the production of polymer additives, turpentine oil, fragrances, pine oil, and pinenes.

Turpentine being naturally sourced product, has a huge potential in the personal care industry. Carene, terpineol, camphor, pure alpha-pinene, and beta-pinene are used as raw materials in manufacturing of personal and home care products, such as cosmetics, liquid cleaners, phenyls, and soaps.

Regional Insights

North America emerged as the largest regional market in the past owing to presence of the major exporters. The region is anticipated to maintain its dominance during the forecast years. Europe also held a significant industry share in 2017 and will expand in the coming years due to high demand for natural ingredients in cosmetics and personal care products. Presence of a robust personal care manufacturing base in countries, such as U.K., France, and Germany, is further expected to be a favorable factor for the market.

Asia Pacific is projected to be the fastest-growing regional market in the years to come owing to rising product demand in cosmetics and personal care industry from developing countries, such as China and Japan. China is the largest producer of turpentine across the globe, as a result, most of the turpentine requirements in the country are met by regional production units.
