Aviation lubricants are highly sophisticated fluids that are used to lubricate the different parts of an aircraft, thereby prolonging their service life. Synthetic lubricants are highly effective for the job as they possess superior lubricating capabilities than their mineral-based counterparts and hence are extensively used by commercial, military, and business aviation platforms. The rise in operational fleet is anticipated to drive the demand for aviation lubricants during the forecast period. The aviation lubricants market is estimated at USD 804 million in 2022 and is projected to reach USD 1,082 million by 2027, at a CAGR of 6.1%.
Shell plc (UK) is the leading player in the aviation lubricants market. The company’s well-established distribution network and brand value serve as an essential factor for its growth. It manufactures products that offer benefits such as low maintenance costs, long equipment life, and reduced energy consumption. The company focuses on inorganic and organic strategies. Shell has also planned to expand the lubricants business in member countries of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN). The company also opened a new technology facility in Bangalore, India, in 2017, thus expanding the company’s R&D activities in Asia. In March 2020, Shell Indonesia invested in its Lubricants Oil Blending Plant (LOBP) located in Marunda Centre, near Jakarta, Indonesia. This expansion will enable Shell to meet the growing demand of the domestic lubricants market and contribute to the advancement of Indonesia’s downstream industry.
