Lubricants Market - Segmented by Group, Base Stock, Product Type, End-user Industry, and Geography - Growth, Trends, and Forecast (2019 - 2024)

Purchase Report

The global lubricant market is expected to register a CAGR of 2.18% during the forecast period, 2018-2023. One of the major factors driving the growth of the global market is the growing automotive production Asia-Pacific and Europe, especially in countries, such as India, United Kingdom, Italy, France, and Indonesia. Additionally, the growing demand for and usage of high-performance lubricants (owing to their better and improved properties, such as reduced flammability, reduced gear wear, and increased service life), is also driving the growth of the market, as the aforementioned properties, make these lubricants suitable for high temperature applications.

Lubricants are majorly used in the industrial sector for the proper functioning of machines. They are also used in automobile for smooth functioning and longevity of engines and other components. Lubricants are available in liquid, semi-fluid, or solid state, and possess various characteristics, such as, high viscosity index, high level of thermal stability, low freezing point, and high boiling point, all of which help to reduce friction between surfaces of machine parts and the rate of wear, without compromising operational efficiency.

Manufacturing Sector Supporting the Lubricant Consumption

The consumption of industrial lubricants is rising steadily owing to increasing consumption from manufacturing sectors. The Asia-Pacific region, presently, is a major hub for manufacturing, led by China. Other Asian countries leading in the manufacturing sector include Indonesia, Thailand, the Philippines, Vietnam, and Singapore. FDI inflow to Asia is estimated to be increased by nearly 15% in 2017, to USD 515 billion, this is mostly a result of the renewed policy efforts by the countries in this region. The FDI inflow to Asian countries was at its peak value of USD 524 billion in the year 2015, which was a moderate value in the year 2016. This robust growth in the manufacturing activities in the region is expected to create a surge in the demand for lubricants, during the forecast period.

Increasing Drain Intervals for Lubricants

The chemistry and technology involved in the production of lubricants have undergone a tremendous change in the recent times. With the introduction of long lasting high-performance lubricants, as well as developments in machining technologies, the interval for oil change has extended almost by 100%. The tradition of changing oil for every 3,000 miles has changed to 7,500 to 10,000 miles for passenger cars. For instances, 60 years ago, the typical oil change interval for a truck was between 500-1,000 miles. But, with the advancement in the lubricant technology, the oil change interval has come to 50,000 miles and is to increase further. This would directly decrease the volumes of lubricants used for automotive, as well as industrial purposes.
