Synthetic Lubricant Market: Overview

Synthetic lubricant is composed of synthetic base oil, thickeners, and additives. Synthetic lubricants are lubricants formulated with base oil coming from the advanced chemical industry like esters, PAO, and PAG, among others. Synthetic lubricant fluids offer excellent lubricating properties like mineral oils but do not have their disadvantages. Synthetic lubricants possess advantages like improved oxidative and thermal stability, superior volatility characteristics, preferred frictional properties, and higher flash point and autoignition temperatures. Rising industrialization coupled with the growing population is projected to promote the application of synthetic lubricants in the automotive industry, thereby, propelling market growth.

Synthetic lubricant in the automotive sector is used in the form of gearbox lubes, diesel engine oils, and transmission oils in commercial passenger vehicles and motorcycles. Additionally, new technologies such as fire-resistant ester-based oils are used in several industries. Besides this, synthetic lubricants are widely used in the transportation and manufacturing sectors, such as aviation, marine, automotive, food & beverage, metal production, transportation equipment manufacturing, commercial machinery manufacturing, and rubber & plastic industries. Hence, rapid growth in these industries is projected to accelerate the growth of the synthetic lubricant market. But, the rising preference for cheaper alternate mineral oils due to the high cost of these lubricants is likely to hamper the market growth over the forecast period. However, the application of synthetic lubricants in the food industry is growing rapidly owing to technological advancements, such as the NSF food lubrication standard set by major equipment manufacturers. Therefore, this is likely to enhance the synthetic lubricant market growth in the upcoming years as well.
