Aviation Lubricants Market

Royal Dutch Shell (Netherlands), ExxonMobil (US) and Total (France) are Leading Players in the Aviation Lubricants Market

Aviation lubricants are materials that help reduce the friction between moving parts or surfaces to enhance the efficiency of aircraft systems. They are used in different applications ranging from airframes, engines, landing gear, interiors, and avionics. The global aviation lubricants market size is projected to grow from an estimated USD 2.0 billion in 2020 to USD 2.9 billion by 2025, at a CAGR of 7.2% during the forecast period. This growth can be attributed to the increasing aircraft orders due to the rising passenger traffic across the globe. Advanced lubricants are used in aircraft engines to increase the efficiency of the aircraft.

Contracts, new product launches, investments, and acquisitions are among some of the key strategies adopted by the leading market players to strengthen and sustain their position in the aviation lubricants market. In August 2020, Idemitsu Kosan Co. Ltd., a Japanese petroleum company, transferred all shares of Shell Lubricants Japan and entered into a share purchase agreement with Shell Overseas Holdings Limited. In April 2019, ExxonMobil invested in a multi-billion dollar expansion of its integrated manufacturing complex in Singapore to convert fuel oil and other bottom-of-the-barrel crude products into higher-value lube base stocks and distillates.
