The global lubricants market is projected to reach USD 166.59 Billion by 2021, registering a CAGR of 2.4% between 2016 and 2021. This rapid growth in the automotive industry in Asia-Pacific is a key driver of the lubricants market. More than 60% of lubricants are consumed by the transportation application segment in 2015. Also, the rapid growth of various manufacturing industry in emerging nations is one of the drivers of the market.

The transportation application dominated the lubricants market. The increasing number of passenger vehicle, commercial vehicle, and growth in the aviation and marine industries are expected to drive the rising demand of lubricants, globally. In addition to this, the improved living standards in emerging economies are contributing to the growth of the global lubricants market.

The lubricants market is classified on the basis of type, namely, mineral oil lubricants, synthetic lubricants, bio-based lubricants, and greases. The lubricants market is dominated by mineral oil lubricants because of its low cost and easy availability. However, owing to the increasing government regulations and consumer awareness, synthetic lubricants and bio-based lubricants are projected to register a high CAGR during the forecast period. Greases due to its high use in various manufacturing industries registered the highest CAGR between 2016 and 2021.

Currently, Asia-Pacific is the largest market for lubricants. The growing automotive and manufacturing industries in the region are expected to drive the increasing demand of lubricants. The Middle East & Africa is projected to be the fastest-growing market between 2016 and 2021. This high growth is attributed to the growing industrial sector in the region.

Lubricants Market

The major factor restraining the growth of the lubricants market is increasing shift toward the high drain interval lubricants such as synthetic lubricants. The use of synthetic lubricants increases the drain out time and as a result the lubricants consumption decreases, hence the overall lubricants market shrinks. Moreover, the high cost of synthetic and bio-based lubricants decreases its consumption, which in turn reduces the market demand. The increasing popularity of hybrid electric vehicles may restrain the growth of the market in the next five years.

Some of the important lubricants companies are Royal Dutch Shell Plc. (Netherlands), Exxon Mobil Corporation (U.S.), Petrochina Company Limited (China), Sinopec Limited (China), Total S.A. (France), Lukoil (Russia), BP Plc. (U.K.), Chevron Corporation (U.S.), Fuchs Petrolub AG (Germany), Idemitsu Kosan Co., Ltd. (Japan), and others. The players in this market need to compete with each other with respect to prices and offer wide product range to meet the market requirements.
