The global biolubricants market is estimated to reach USD 3.15 Billion by 2021, registering a CAGR of 6.3% between 2016 and 2021. The biolubricants market is projected to grow at a healthy growth rate in next five years is driven by increasing consumer awareness about environment and stringent governmental regulations. The report analyzes the market on the basis of type, end-use industry, application, and region. It also covers the market behavior of leading producers, key developments, and strategies implemented to sustain and succeed in the market.

On the basis of type, the biolubricants market is segmented as vegetable oil based, mineral oil based, and others (synthetic esters). The vegetable oil based biolubricants segment accounted for the largest share of the overall market, in terms of volume, in 2015. Vegetable oils biolubricants find use in multiple applications and are produced in huge quantities worldwide. Vegetable oils provide better oxidative stability and technical performance than animal fats. In some countries, vegetable oils biolubricants is preferred over animal fats due to wildlife conservation concerns. Many countries are increasing the production of vegetable oils to produce biolubricants. The huge production of vegetable oils in the Asia-Pacific region provides substantial potential for the development of biolubricants market in the region.

Biolubricants have applications in hydraulic fluids, metalworking fluids, chainsaw oils, mold release agents, two-cycle engine oils, gear oils, greases, and others. Hydraulic fluids is the largest application segment of biolubricants. Hydraulic fluids are used in both stationary and mobile equipment such as hydraulic elevators, sweepers, garage trucks, fork lifts, motor graders, and front end loaders. The high volume consumption of biolubricants in hydraulic fluids is due to the issue of disposal of hydraulic fluids into the environment. Biolubricants as hydraulic fluids are preferred in areas where contamination can harm the environment. The demand for environment friendly hydraulic fluids is driven by stringent regulations in sensitive areas such as marine and forest eco-systems.

The end-use industries of biolubricants include industrial, commercial transport, and consumer automobile. The industrial segment accounted for the largest share of the overall market. Environmental regulations on disposal of lubricants into the environment, ecolabels, and tax incentives for the use of biolubricants make the industrial segment the largest user of biolubricants.

Globally, Europe dominated the biolubricants market in 2015, whereas North America is projected to register highest CAGR, in terms of value, during the forecast period. North America is projected to become the largest market by 2021. The demand for biolubricants is dominated by Europe due to the presence of countries such as the Germany, France, Finland, Norway, Italy, and others where environmental concerns are addressed through various emission standards and the use of bio degradable products.

Biolubricants Market

The major restrains in the market are identified to be lack of sufficient regulatory mandates in Asia Pacific and higher price than petroleum based lubricants. Market leaders such as Royal Dutch Shell Plc, Exxon Mobil and Kluber Lubrication Munchen Se & Co. KG have strong brand image, in both petroleum-based products as well as bio-based products. Stringent regulations in Europe would be beneficial for the market players as they continue to use growth strategies such as new product development, agreements & collaborations to increase the penetration of biolubricants
