The global white spirit market size is projected to grow from USD 6.7 billion in 2019 to USD 8.1 billion by 2024, at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4.0%, during the forecast period. White spirit is a colorless, clear, and flammable hydrocarbon solvent with a high aromatic content (varying from 2% to 25%). These liquids are obtained in the middle distillate of the crude oil refining process. Based on the aromatic content and flash point, these hydrocarbon solvents are differentiated into type 0, type 1, type 2, and type 3 white spirits. The main application of white spirit includes paints, coatings, waxes, varnishes, adhesives, and printing inks.
The use of the white spirit depends on the end-use applications. For instance, a low aromatic white spirit is preferred more in industries, such as paints & coatings, and industrial and institutional cleaning, whereas in the oil & gas industry, high aromatic white spirit is used in the drilling process. The major difference between the four types of white spirits is the flashpoint, aromatic content, and the boiling point range.
