Crude oil is the raw material for oil marketing companies, so any volatility in international prices directly impacts their earnings.

Even for paint, aviation and tyre companies, oil forms major part of their operational expenses.

Crude oil prices tumbled more than 6 percent on Tuesday in heavy trading volume, with US crude diving to its lowest level in more than a year, caught in a broader Wall Street sell-off fed by mounting concerns about a slowdown in global economic growth.

US West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude futures ended the session down $3.77, or 6.6 percent, at $53.43 per barrel. The contract fell as much as 7.7 percent during the session to touch $52.77 a barrel, the lowest since October 2017.

Brent crude futures, the international benchmark for oil prices, fell $4.26, or 6.4 percent, to settle at $62.53 a barrel. The international benchmark fell as much as 7.6 percent to $61.71 during the session, the lowest since December 2017.

Oil's slide has been largely unimpeded since early October when WTI prices were near four-year peaks. Since then, WTI has fallen more than 30 percent. (Source: Reuters)
