PAO is projected to be the largest type of the synthetic lubricants market during the forecast period.

Polyalphaolefin (PAO) is projected to dominate the synthetic lubricants market during the forecast period. PAO, often called synthetic hydrocarbons, is the most common type of synthetic base oil. They are high-performance synthetic lubricants manufactured through the catalytic oligomerization of alphaolefin. PAO is the most commonly used synthetic lubricants across a wide range of applications, and in high volume. They exhibit certain inherent physical and chemical properties such as lower volatility, higher viscosity index, lower pour point, and better oxidative/thermal stability. They are mainly used as high-performance functional base fluids in engine oils, hydraulic oils, transmission oils, and compressor oils. The wide operational temperature range and oxidative stability are driving the market for the PAO segment in a wide range of applications.

The engine oil segment to be the largest application during the forecast period.

Based on application, the synthetic lubricants market has been segmented into engine oil, hydraulic fluids, metalworking fluids, compressor oil, gear oil, refrigeration oil, transmission fluids, and turbine oil. The demand for engine oil is mainly driven by the growing automotive industry, which includes personal vehicles and high cargo transportation. This dominance is also attributed to the rapid growth of the automotive industry, especially in the APAC region. Engine oil is mainly used in automobiles to reduce metal-to-metal contact and minimize overall friction and reduce damage.

Europe to account for the largest share of the global synthetic lubricants market during the forecast period.

Europe is projected to be the largest synthetic lubricants market during the forecast period. Increasing investment in blending plants for synthetic lubricants in Russia and the Netherlands, among other countries, is driving the market in Europe. In addition, stringent regulations on CO2 emissions from vehicles have increased the demand for fuel-efficient lubricants, thereby, driving the synthetic lubricants market in the transportation sector. Several national ecolabels/schemes and one international standard have been developed in the recent years, setting requirements for the ecological and technical characteristics of lubricants. The adoption of these standards has increased the demand for synthetic lubricants in various industrial and automotive applications.

Market Dynamics

Growing automotive industry and vehicle parc

Over the years, the automotive industry has witnessed significant growth in vehicle production and sales. As per the OICA, global vehicle production in 2017 was approximately 97 million units. Currently, the automotive industry is witnessing a period of substantial growth in APAC and North America, among other regions, and the annual sales of vehicles have increased, significantly. Technological advancements have fueled the growth of the automotive industry in APAC and North America. Brazil (one of the world’s five biggest automotive markets) is a major base of operations for Fiat Chrysler Automobiles N.V., Volkswagen, General Motors, and Ford. In 2017, the overall automotive sales climbed by 9.2%. Increasing population in countries such as Brazil and Russia will also result in further growth of the automotive industry in the near future. The increasing vehicle production is considered to be a positive factor responsible for the growth of the synthetic lubricants market.

In addition, the increasing sales of passenger and commercial vehicles, especially in emerging economies, such as APAC, Africa, and South America, is driving the global automotive industry. Factors such as the improved road infrastructure, increasing average age of vehicles, reduced scrappage rate, and increasing vehicle sales are contributing to the increasing vehicle parc (vehicles-in-use). The increasing number of vehicles on the road has a major impact on the demand for synthetic lubricants. According to the Bureau of Transportation Statistics, the average age of a passenger car and a light truck has increased from 9.1 years and 8.4 years, respectively, in 2000, to 11.6 years in 2017. Besides the increasing vehicle parc, the rising demand for fuel efficiency has led to the increased use of high-quality oil and lubricants, which in turn, has positively impacted the synthetic lubricants market.

Increasing industrialization in emerging economies

The massive industrial growth in APAC has been fueling the growth of the synthetic lubricants market since the past few years, and this is expected to continue so during the next five years. Domestic and foreign investments in key sectors such as energy, manufacturing, construction, and mining have been consistently growing over the past decade. China, the home to almost 20% of the global population, has registered the second-highest growth in the synthetic lubricants market. The GDP growth of China increased by 6.9% in 2017, which entail increased industrial growth and sales of synthetic lubricants in the country. Over the past decade, India has been witnessing a moderate GDP growth. The country has attracted several investments in key industrial sectors such as construction, cement, steel, and energy. The economic outlook of India has been very optimistic. The manufacturing sector in India is growing with the government encouraging this sector by liberalizing policies and providing additional incentives such as land at cheap rates and faster clearances from all the concerned departments. This is expected to drive the sales of synthetic lubricants in the country during the forecast period.

Rise in demand for alternative fuel

Climate change is a major concern associated with the use of petroleum-based products. The use of alternative fuel in vehicles results in lower CO2 emissions. On comparison with a gasoline vehicle, the emissions from a compressed natural gas (CNG) vehicle are lower by about 60-90%, whereas a liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) vehicle reduces about 30-90% of carbon monoxide (Alternative Fuels Data Center). Owing to the concerns regarding petroleum consumption, climate change, and mobile source emissions, the Energy Policy Act (EPACT) in the US was converted into law in 1992. The governments in the US and the European countries such as Germany, France, Norway, Sweden, Austria, and Switzerland, are trying to reduce the dependence on petroleum-based products. Such factors may significantly hamper the consumption of synthetic lubricants in engine oil.

Stringent environmental regulations

Governments all over the world are emphasizing on the need for more stringent environmental regulations. The US EPA has regularly modified and enforced several norms for reducing vehicular emissions and improving the quality and efficiency of the fuels used. The EU (European Union) has imposed stringent rules that are to be followed by manufacturers of passenger vehicles and light-duty vehicles, under the EU light-duty vehicle CO2 regulation, by 2020. As per the EU regulation, the target is to reduce CO2 emissions by 3.1% annually between 2017 and 2020. There is a mandatory CO2 emission standard for new passenger cars and light commercial vehicles, whereas a regulation on heavy-duty vehicle CO2 standards is expected to be proposed in the near future. The increasingly stringent regulations vehicular emissions are likely to increase the consumption of synthetic lubricants. The use of more efficient and effective synthetic lubricants can significantly reduce carbon emission from vehicles. OEMs recommend the use of high-performance lubricants to increase fuel efficiency and reduce emission.

Advancements in synthetic lubricants technologies

Major players in the market have access to new technologies, capital, and human expertise. With increasing investment in R&D, they are likely to come up with environmentally-friendly, efficient, and effective synthetic lubricants at very competitive prices. This would enhance their product portfolio, brand image, and reliability. This is likely to increase the penetration of synthetic lubricants in the overall lubricants.

High cost of synthetic lubricants

The high price of synthetic lubricants is impacting the market growth. The price of synthetic lubricants can go up to 2-5 times higher than that of mineral oil lubricants. The price of silicone-based synthetic lubricant can go as high as 20 times the price of mineral oil lubricants. Price plays a key role in the choosing of the type of lubricants in major developing markets such as China, India, Africa, and Brazil. Reducing the cost of synthetic lubricants, especially in price-sensitive markets, is a major challenge for the market players.
