Market Analysis: Global Synthetic Lubricants Market

Global synthetic lubricants market is expected to register a steady potential growth rate of 3.95% in the forecast period of 2019-2026. The report contains data from the base year of 2018 and the historic year of 2017. This rise in market value can be attributed to the focus of various authorities and organizations on extensive levels of research & development activities resulting in high levels of innovations in technologies.

Market Definition: Global Synthetic Lubricants Market

Synthetic lubricants are produced from oil extracted from various different artificial chemical manufacturing industries such as esters, PAO and various others. These oils are then processed for replacing the mineral oils present in crude oil to develop synthetic lubricants which are then used as lubricating fluids/compounds to enhance the performance levels of different machineries and components. Unlike, other lubricants synthetic lubricants are developed with the help of chemical synthesis instead of refinement or extraction of petrol-based compounds with the main objective of these lubricants being to reduce the friction levels between two different surfaces.

Market Drivers:

  • Increasing production activities for natural gas being carried out in the various gulf countries; this is expected to act as a driver for the market growth
  • High demand associated with the automotive industry; this factor is expected to propel the market growth
  • Growth in the levels of industrialization from the various developing countries/regions of the world is expected to boost the market growth
  • Various different benefits associated with these lubricants over the conventional lubricants is expected to foster positive market growth

Market Restraints:

  • Increasing availability of bio-lubricants is expected to act as a restraint for the market growth
  • Concerns related to high costs of these lubricants; this factor is expected to hinder the market growth
  • High demands for alternative fuels and products; this factor is expected to restrict the market growth
