White Oil Price Trend for the H1 of 2023


The prices of white oil fluctuated in the first and second quarters of 2023. Initially, the prices declined with the low demand from cosmetics and related industries. The decline in freight charges and rising global inflation rates also resulted in the decline in white oil prices. The market improved slightly in the middle of the first quarter but declined again as it had no support from the crude oil sector or demand from the downstream industries.


The European market remained volatile in the first and second quarters of 2023 for the prices of white oil. The market in the initial months of the first quarter was supported by rising crude oil prices and a high number of orders from the downstream sectors. But in the subsequent months of the first and second quarters, the trend dropped owing to sluggish demand from the end-sector industries and the lowering of natural gas prices forcing the manufacturers to decrease their production costs.

North America

In the initial months of the first quarter,  white oil prices declined in the North American region as they were affected by the rising pressure of inflation and the slow economic movement of the market. As a result, the demand from the end-user industries was also subdued, and freight charges saw a slump with the decrease in shipment activities. However, in the later months of the first quarter and throughout the second quarter, the price trend stabilized as the equilibrium between the supply-demand dynamics stabilized.

Analyst Insight

White oil, commonly referred to as mineral oil or liquid paraffin, is an oil made from petroleum that has no flavour, smell, or color. Due to the presence of saturated aliphatic hydrocarbons, it is chemically inert. It is commonly used in pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, food processing, and a variety of other industries. Due to its qualities, which include non-comedogenicity and low toxicity, it can be used in food-grade items including lubricants, ointments, and lotions.
