Market Analysis: Global Gear Oils Market 

Global gear oils market is expected to an estimated value of USD 9.96 billion by 2026, registering a steady CAGR of 3.10% in the forecast period of 2019-2026. This rise in market value can be attributed to the rising demand from power industry, better quality of gear oils and the fast pace growth of the automotive industry.

Market Definition: Global Gear Oils Market 

Gear oil is a fluid lubricant that is used to reduce friction and avoid wear & tear of surfaces. This lubricant is made especially for differentials in automobile transmissions and transfer cases. They have a wide application in various industries including manufacturing & construction, automobile, agriculture etc. Gear oil smoothen the surface and increases the life and productivity of the machine by preventing it from tearing due to continuous usage, thereby increasing the life of machines.

Market Drivers:

  • Rising demand for gear oil from the power industry boosts the growth of this market
  • Improvement in the quality of gear oils with innovations an development
  • The spurring growth of the automobile industry and the increased applicability of gear oil in automobiles boots the growth of this market
  • Rise in the number of vehicles owned, increase in the volumes of cargo transported and increasing demand for high-end and luxury cars leads to increased use of gear oil in the transportation industry
  • Decline in the prices of offshore industry has accelerated the demand for wind power generation which in turn enhances the growth of gear oil
  • Increasing adoption of gear oil in wind turbines and wind power plants because of their enhanced features as compared to their mineral-based counterparts
  • Rise in the standards of living of people coupled with rise in the spending power stimulates the growth of this market

Market Restraints:

  • Strict environmental regulations is restricting the use of gear oils
  • Advancements in technology in the automobile sector restrains the growth of this market

Key Developments in the Market:

  • In September 2018, Castrol, a leading oil & petroleum company, launched new and innovative gear oil, Castrol Optigear Synthetic PD ES, which assist producers to reduce the consumption of energy and reduces the possibility of any downtime that is caused as a result of gear failures, thereby enhancing the life of the machine and oil. This oil reduces friction and protects the gear box from the excessive heat produced by friction. Thus, such introduction enhances the life of machine and maximises productivity the demand for Optigear Synthetic PD ES and this is leading to the growth of this market.
  • In September 2018, ExxonMobil has introduced new and innovative gear oil, Mobil SHC Elite specifically for those machinery and equipment that function under extremely high temperatures. Mobil SHC Elite has been engineered in a way such that it protects the high-end machineries in harsh temperatures and ensures its optimum performance. This oil has a lasting capacity of over 12 times than that of mineral oils and double the life of synthetic oil. Thus, it substitutes the demand of these oils as it acts as a more energy-efficient and better performance based oil. With such a development, Exxon Mobil shifts the demand towards its gear oil which in turn would lead to an increased demand for gear oil in the forecasted period.
