The Global Lubricant Market is projected to reach USD 179.08 billion by 2027

An oily fluid and semifluid substance responsible to reduce friction and wear & tear between two components is termed as lubricant. Depending on their composition that is, base oil + additives and characteristics such as thermal stability, boiling point, freezing point, high viscosity index, etc. they are used for abundant applications. The prominent industries served by lubricants are automotive, manufacturing, machinery, textiles, transportation, aviation, marine among others. Lubricants are generally of four types; liquid form, semi-solid form, solid form and synthetic form.

End-User Landscape (Consumer Profile): Global Lubricant Market

End-use companies such as Shell, ExxonMobil among others are investing extensively on the manufacturing and sale of lubricants, which presents a huge opportunity to lubricant suppliers. The report provides a detailed list of end-users operating across the world. The end-use landscape includes consumer contact details, geographical presence, revenue, product portfolio, organic, and inorganic growth strategies among others. Growing end-use industries in the emerging economies are expected to increase the demand for the lubricants market.

Mineral oil lubricant is among the major type of lubricant and continues its dominance in the forecast period (2017-2025)

Based on the type, lubricants are classified as mineral oil lubricants, bio-based lubricants, and synthetic lubricants. The Mineral oil based lubricants are mineral oil (petroleum by product) based. The mineral oil is of three types, that is, Paraffinic Oil, Naphthenic Oil and Aromatic oil. The Bio-based lubricants are based on oil extracted from various vegetables such as soybean, palm, coconut, sunflower, canola among others. These type of lubricants have evolved as a result of concern for environmental interest. For Synthetic type of lubricants highly refined base oil is used as compared to traditional mineral oil based lubricants, to ensure better performance and protection.

Global Lubricant Market Drivers

  • Automobile Industry: Growing automobile industry in developing economies, specifically APAC region and stable automobile industry of the U.S. and Europe will drive the lubricants market
  • Low Viscosity Fluid: Increasing demand for low viscosity fluids from automotive industry will create a demand for industrial lubricants
  • Rapid Industrialization: Rapid industrialization especially in developing countries will fuel up the usage of lubricants
  • Machinery Development: Development and modernization of machinery for various industrial purposes will create a demand for lubricants in future
  • Others: Other application areas such as mining, wind turbine, etc. will affect the lubricants market positively

Lubricant Market

Automotive lubricant industry is projected to grow at a considerable rate during the forecast period (2017-2025)

Automotive industry is one of the major application area for lubricants, where in lubricants in form engine oil, gear oil, grease, transmission fluid and other fluids are used. Increasing demand of both light duty as well as heavy duty commercial vehicles especially in APAC region is a major driving factor.

The automotive industry has become saturated in few parts of North America & Europe and so the demand from these regions is comparatively low.

Increase in the life span of vehicles encourage the high usage of lubricants for enhanced performance and protection against damage, which is the driving factor for lubricants market. Government stated legislations and OEM requirements encourage the use of high quality lubricants so as to maintain vehicles’ and environment’s health. Also, the frequently changing raw material prices affect the market both positively and negatively.

Asia-Pacific is projected to account for the largest share in the global lubricants market by 2027

Asia-Pacific is the largest market for lubricants as compared to other regions of the world. Over 40% of lubricants demand comes from Asian countries. The fastest gains in the APAC region, are due to an increase in motor vehicles population and rapid industrialization witnessed in major economies such as China and India. China alone accounts for over 40% of the lubricants demand in APAC region, followed by India (10-12%), Japan (8-10%) among others.

Asia-Pacific is the region consisting of the world’s major emerging economies, where in development is taking place at a very fast pace and thus it will fuel the growth of lubricants market. China and India are highly populated countries (globally top two) which creates a large scope for automotive industry to grow imposing high demand for lubricants. Most of the economies in Asia-Pacific are economic in standard and thus there is not a very high usage of high quality lubricants, thus the drain out time is less which enables the frequent usage of lubricants and fuels its growth. Also, the rapid industrialization and modernization in Asian economies impacts lubricants market positively along with the demand from transportation, marine and aviation sector which will spur the lubricants market growth.

Growth Factors for China: China is the most populous country and thereby has huge number of vehicles on road, thus more the usage of vehicles more will be the requirement of lubricants. It is known to be a world factory due to massive production it does for all types of products, thus a considerable amount of volume of lubricant is required to keep the factories and machines functioning. Also, China’s GDP is expanding year on year which ensures the buying power of its citizen, thus the people will buy more two wheelers and four wheelers and won’t hesitate in spending on their maintenance

Emerging economies like China, India, and Brazil among others offer a tremendous potential to the lubricants market growth. Growing environmental concerns will be a good opportunity for bio-based lubricants to grow as well and capture a higher market share.

Abundant applications and high performing additives encourage the use of lubricants. Increased industrialization will be huge opportunity for growth of the lubricants as well.

The report entails key drivers, restraints, opportunities, and challenges that impact the global lubricant market. Players covered in the global lubricant market report include Royal Dutch Shell PLC, Exxonmobil Corporation, and BP PLC among others.
