PAO is expected to be the largest segment of the overall synthetic lubricants market during the forecast period.

On the basis of type, the synthetic lubricants market has been segmented into PAO, PAG, esters, and group III. The PAO segment is expected to lead the synthetic lubricants market between 2018 and 2023, in terms of value. Growth in the market size of PAO synthetic lubricants is attributed to its improved oxidative and thermal stability and increasing use in various applications, such as engine oil, metalworking fluids, and hydraulic fluids.

The engine oil segment accounts for the largest share of the overall synthetic lubricants market.

On the basis of 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.
