Key Market Trends
Heavy Equipment Segment to Dominate the Market Demand
- In construction, mining, and agricultural industries, lubricants are useful for preventing premature failure and the performance decline of heavy equipment.
- Delays in construction projects, volatility in fuel prices, and decline in mining operations impacted the heavy equipment sector in 2020, which restrained equipment maintenance activities and caused an 11.3% drop in their lubricant consumption.
- The metalworking activities in the country witnessed a resurge from 2021, with the lockdown measures being gradually relaxed and state and local governments focusing on domestic manufacturing.
- Heavy-duty vehicle utilization is expected to rise in the future years, thanks to significant investments in infrastructure.
- Therefore, the increasing demand for, and usage of heavy equipment are further projected to drive the demand for industrial lubricants, during the forecast period.

Surging Demand from Wind Energy Sector
- India's electricity industry is one of the world's most diverse. Power generating options include coal, lignite, natural gas, oil, hydro, and nuclear power, as well as feasible non-conventional options including wind, solar, and agricultural and household waste.
- The country's electricity demand has risen significantly and is likely to continue to climb in the coming years. To fulfil the country's growing need for power, a substantial increase in installed generating capacity is necessary.
- The overall installed wind power capacity was 40 GW as of November 2021, making it the world's fourth-highest installed wind power capacity.
- In the Financial year, 2020-2021 the total power generation from Wind Energy is 59,824 GWh when compared to 64,485 GWh the previous Finacial year.
- The lubricant requirements in wind turbine gearboxes are more stringent, compared to other industrial gear oils. This is due to the high temperatures, bearing wear, corrosion and oxidation, and load weights involved during the process of power generation.
- Therefore, with increase in wind energy infrastructure, the demand for industrial lubricants, such as gear oils, grease, etc., is expected to increase in the country, during the forecast period.
The India industrial lubricants market is partially consolidated in nature, with numerous players holding a significant share of the market, to individually affect the market dynamics.
