Turbine Oil Market

Turbine Oil Market by Base Oil (Mineral Oil, Synthetic Oil, Bio-based Oil), Turbine Type (Steam, Turbine, Gas Turbine, Hydraulic Systems), End-Use Industry (Transportation, Industrial) and Region (North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, South America, Middle East & Africa) - Global Forecast to 2030

Report Code: UC 5964 Apr, 2023, by marketsandmarkets.com

The turbine oil market is projected to reach USD 1.91 billion by 2030, at a CAGR of 3.9% from USD 1.40 billion in 2022. Because of improved economies and rising energy consumption in both emerging and developed parts of the world, the turbine oil industry is expanding rapidly. The turbine lubricating oils include high quality and superior water separation capabilities. Traditional turbine oils are the most widely used mineral-based lubricants because they assist to reduce external contamination and oxidation products. With the recent adoption of bio-based turbine oils, it is expected that their use would increase more quickly overall, particularly in North America and Europe.

Market Dynamics

Driver: Rising energy consumption across the globe

The necessity for installing additional gas, steam, and hydroelectric power turbines has increased due to the rise in global energy consumption. The market for turbine oils is also influenced by factors including an increase in wind energy investment and supportive government initiatives and legislation. Global demand for renewable energy is now rising as a result of policy interventions by several nations, such as Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Restraints: Growing demand for hybrid and e-vehicles

Hybrid vehicles contain both a small internal combustion engine (ICE) and an electric motor for optimum power utilization and reducing emissions from vehicles. The growing number of hybrid vehicles will reduce the demand for lubricants per vehicle almost by half, as per industry experts. This factor, coupled with increasing battery parity, will reduce the volume of the global turbine oil market.

Opportunities: Rising initiatives towards renewable energy sources

The number of wind turbines is increasing along with the size of the turbines. These turbines are being installed in remote and offshore locations. Thus, performance is paramount and any gearbox and bearing failure may lead to a huge problem. With the growing number of wind turbines and improved gearbox and bearing technology, the use of advanced lubrication is increasing. Similarly, hydroelectric power generation and tidal power generation also involves huge turbines. Thus, the growth of the renewable energy industry is expected to positively impact the turbine oil industry and offer lucrative opportunities to turbine oil manufacturers.

Challenges: Stringent environmental norms and continuous reforms by governments

Regulatory and policy restrictions on fossil-fuel fired power plants can however, restrain the growth of the steam turbines market. Growing concerns about the negative impact of carbon emissions on climate and consequent measures by regional and country level policies such as capping the amount of emissions acceptable from these plants have led to retirements of existing plants as well as shelving of future construction in favor of other options, even if they are more costly.

“Mineral Oil was the largest base oil for turbine oil market in 2021, in terms of value”

The mineral oil segment is leading the overall turbine oil market, in terms of value, in 2021. This is owed to the growing demand for mineral oil in the automotive sector in the developing countries of Asia Pacific, the Middle East & Africa, and South America. There is growing demand for Group II base oils, mainly in the developing regions of the world. They are produced via petroleum refineries in large quantities because of its high usage in different sectors such as transportation, industrial machinery, and equipment.

“Steam turbines was the largest turbine type for turbine oil market in 2021, in terms of value”

The growth is attributed to the continuing investments in electricity generation infrastructure, particularly in the large economies of Asia Pacific region. Coal fired power generation continues to remain one of the most affordable option for developing economies in the world, particularly in Asia-Pacific. Moreover, there is sufficient supply of coal for usage as fuel, while other options such as natural gas require creation of new infrastructure for its import and use. Although, the world as a whole is slowly moving away from coal-based power generation in view of growing environmental concerns, the transition is expected to be slow and would need syndicated efforts across different economies to take place.

“Asia Pacific was the largest market for turbine oil in 2021, in terms of value.”

The Asia Pacific region led the worldwide market for turbine oils in 2021 and is estimated to grow at highest CAGR over the next five years. The installation of wind turbines and steam turbines will ultimately increase due to the high need for power generation in China, Japan, India, and Southeast Asia.
