Lubricants Market Outlook

Lubricants are used to reduce wear and friction between surfaces in contact that are in relative motion. Based upon the nature of lubricant they are also used to eliminate wear debris and heat, to seal, protect and transmit power along with acting as a supply additive into the contact. A lubricant is in semisolid, gaseous, solid or liquid forms. Many lubricants consist of additive in the range of 5 to 30% to enhance their performance.

The marine industry is expected to register significant growth owing to increasing leisure boat production to cater to enhanced tourism. Leisure boat includes cabin cruisers, propulsion systems, personal watercraft, jet boats, drive power boats, pontoon boats, sailboats, fishing boats, towboats, and runabouts. There is a growing demand of these boats worldwide in the past decade that has induced lubricants consumption in the industry. Recreational boating is anticipated to have a positive outlook along with new avenues in a sailboat, outboard, stern drive, and inboard. Lubricants market will witness substantial gains in coming years owing to the bulging tourism industry globally.
